What are words?
What do they mean to you?
Do they help you to communicate or do they sever the connection?
Do they soothe, cheer, uplift and praise?
Or do they insult, degrade, humiliate and destroy.
What are words? Why do words have such power?
Or is this power imagined?
Maybe we give power to words so that we dont have to use it ourselves.
Delegating responsibility to, take the pressure off our backs.
Why are we so afraid of control?
Why do humans always seem to want someone ELSE making their decisions for them.
Why are we afraid of controlling our own futures?
You say, 'I'm in control, no one tells me what to do.'
I say, 'You're a sheep, a brainless cipher, one of billions. You are not in control.'
You say, 'I am in control. I work in the place i choose, i live wherever i want, i decide what i wear. Is that not control?'
I say, 'You are a follower, a nobody special. You work where you choose, but who do you work for? You live where you want but who controls the neighborhood? You decide what you want but who told you that it looks good? You are not in control.'
'Think about it,' I say, 'What do you see on TV? What is said on the radio, in the newspapers? What do you look at on the internet? Do you ever think about the people who put those things there for you to see?'
Does nobody see the amount of CONTROL these people have?
These people have the ability to control our likes and dislikes, which are in turn controlled by our emotions.
You agree so far?
And if they have the ability to control our emotions, they have the ability to control our actions.
Because dont you let your emotions decide things for you?
When you see a pretty dress in a shop, dont you think to yourself, ' I like it.' ?
And when you see a nice car dont you think, 'I want it.' ?
and when you go out and buy that pretty dress and drive that nice car, i dont see anyone realizing that someone else made them buy it.
im not saying they put a gun to their head, but if your emotions control your actions and other people control your emotions you're nothing but a mindless puppet.
They might as well put the gun to your head and for good measure pull the goddamn trigger because what is life, if you dont have the ability to choose?
