Stuff Is Messed Up

There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today
I don’t know what it is
Something’s wrong with our eyes…

The world is fucked up.

We live in a world where it takes a video of a woman being hit on an elevator being made public for people…and by extension the most powerful sports organization in the world…to realize that domestic violence is wrong.

Some of us knew already, yet it apparently takes seeing a punch being thrown to know one landed.

We’re seeing things in a different way
And God knows it ain’t His
It sure ain’t no surprise

We live in a world where people fight and kill in the name of religion. Whether the fighters be Christian or Muslim, Jewish or Hindu, or any religion in the world be placed in the place of those aforementioned, killing others for a religion goes against the very premise of spirituality.

Love all. Love one another as you love your deity. Be the love you want to show others in the world.

None of those words are kill.

There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today
The lightbulb’s gettin’ dim
There’s a meltdown in the sky

Police militarization has grown exponentially in recent years. Cops are getting assault rifles, body armor, and tactical vehicles to break up riots and protect themselves from the forces of evil (or something like that).

There are terrible people in the world, this is as true now as it’s ever been. Yet it’s no more true now than it was yesterday, or the day before that, or the day before that. People hate. It doesn’t matter the weaponry in use when the hate is what propels it.

If you can judge a wise man
By the color of his skin
Then mister you’re a better man than I

Why do we hate people because of their differences?

Why do we do we allow the things that make us unique to be the same things that drive us apart a civilization?

Why do we hate?
