We really do live in a world where people can't make their mind up for themselves. We believe everything put in the news. When people now want to find out if they need to wear a jacket, do they stick their head out the door and figure it out for themselves? No they turn on the TV and eat up whatever story they hear. We live in a world where all the information and knowledge is right at our fingertips, and all we need do it tap into it. But people still believe everything they read without doing any research or critical thinking of their own. We believe in god, and every house has a bible. Just because people don't challenge the norm. We won't allow gay marriage because we don't believe they deserve the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Even though all people are promised so in the document that founded the laws of this country.
We used to be the greatest country in the world. We met absurd challenges, made mind boggling leaps in the world of science, and when people didn't like what they government was doing they got up and fought for what we believed in. We the people have grown to be indoctrinated, complacent, and incapable of our own thoughts. We are scared to challenge what is normal, because we fear what someone will say on facebook. Sucked in to what everyone thinks is cool. Pulled in by every absurd story someone posts, or that a news channel covers.
The world as we know it is controlled by men and woman in suits, sitting in front of cameras telling stories to the masses. Wake up, America, and good morning.
