Experimentation

An Urban-Hermit's Thoughts


Fellow neo-beatniks rise up
out of the shadows
in which you've been hiding
now is the time to be loud and
H---O---W---L
into the cold dark nights
and let your voices be heard amongst the masses
like our cool cats of old

this is a plea for
??????????????????
friends poets writers lovers musicians and anyone else
to write to eachother share thoughts and have fun
hook up and be creative
to find a voice for another new vision
of
art
poetry
writing
and music.

Let us join hands and sing

From April 29, 2004

April 29, 2004.

This world is such a bizarre place. It has come such a long way from its humble beginnings, if there ever was a beginning. The world changes just as fast as time does. New technologies develop in seconds, new creations made and discovered. At any moment in time, something disastrous could occur any where in the world and within minutes, the rest of the world will learn of it. What an opposite compared to the beginning when people had no idea that there was such a thing as a “world.” What is even more bizarre is that that world was less selfish than the current one. Selfishness was a word that didn’t exist than, because the whole reason to live was to survive and pass on your genes. You couldn’t concern yourself with the events halfway around the world because you were powerless to do something about it. But these days, any human being with a cent can make a difference. But they choose to hold onto that money to make their life more luxurious. It is rather sickening to see people want a million dollars rather than a portion of a million and give a large amount to people who need it more.
This world is so bizarre. We’re fighting a war against terrorism, but we’re ignoring the cause of this terrorism. Do people not realize that terrorism is caused by oppression by a more powerful force? And what is power but having something that the other person/group lacks. It could be knowledge, money, a gun, a drug, etc. The war on terrorism should not be targeting the people who are trying to solve their situation, but towards the cause of it. The war should be looking at how American capitalists are targeting areas of weakness in the world to reap the awards. They are the imperialists in the 21st century. Humans have not learned a thing from the British, French, Spanish, Dutch, German imperialists, the communist Russians, the Ottoman Turks, the Mongols, the Romans, and so on. Humans need to realize and accept that having power is actually a bad thing. The communists have it right. Everyone should be put on an equal playing field and maybe some of the problems in the world can be solved. Maybe not some of the medical diseases, but the social problems that exist.

An Urban-Hermit's Thoughts
Pre-face: Before setting up this blog, I had been writing at another site two-three years ago over at opendiary.com (it no longer exists now), and also on my computer from time-to-time. My notes on the computer aren't that articulated, just brief points usually, but I thought I'd put them up here to store them more easily right now. The next couple of posts will be various short essays or notes written in this year. Hope to be inspired soon to write more, or maybe I'm too inspired right now to put down my thoughts with everything going on - election, baseball, flu epidemic, Iraq, etc, etc, etc. Enjoy.

Thoughts.

The doom of capitalism

Why disease is good for the world.

- without disease, illness, etc. the pharmaceuticals wouldn’t have anything to battle against
o meaning, companies would lose money and eventually go bankrupt.
o Therefore, to ensure the companies will still exist, the drug companies don’t pursue the research further enough to eliminate these beneficial diseases.
o Doctors and researchers from the 17th-early 20th pursued medicine to eradicate diseases for the benefit of the human race. Somehow, that pursuit for man has become a pursuit for money. If companies truly don’t care about the profits their drugs make, would they need to advertise heavily on television and convince people they do have a problem? Why do drug companies exist? Why can’t they be non-profit organizations and actually care about their clients? Even if these companies charge money for Tyenol, why not give the really helpful drugs for AIDs and diabetes out for free and support those operations through other donations?

Drugs
Are drugs really that bad? Are they illegal because the state can’t control the trafficking of them as easily as other material goods and, therefore, lose a lot of tax money? Are they too accessible to profit from with legit companies? People can grow marijuana inside their house, or on their farm, etc. But people can’t just make a car out in their garage easily, nor any processed goods.

The end of capitalism is coming if things that harm humans is actually good, and items that can’t be controlled are marked evil because they can’t be profitable or lose a lot of potential income. Only items that are manufactured or inaccessible can be legit and good for the economy – oil, cars, tobacco, pornography, etc. I wish the world would wake up and realize all of this.
