Today, we live in an unfair and judgmental society filled with lies and cover-ups.
Firstly, we have many influential people and leaders, who are sadly hypocrites at the same time. We have governments that preach peace, but endorse war; Pastors that encourage charity, but owns private jets and a Mercedes car.
Secondly, our society is a hypocritical and judgmental one. A society that tells us abortion is wrong, but looks down on teenage parents; the same society that sells products to promote natural hair, looks and smooth complexion, but magazines filled with photoshopped models with fake eyelashes.
“Everybody is equal.” - a phrase often heard while we’re growing up. If this is true, why does racism exist in so many places? If this is true, why are the poor getting poorer, the rich getting richer, while the gap between the poor and the rich increasing day by day. The opinions of the rich and wealthy are “useful feedbacks”, while the pleas and cries of the less-fortunate aren’t even heard. Why are there still the homeless, jobless, and individuals that are being looked down on?
In school, we learnt formulas and subjects that many of us won’t use at all in the future. But why are we learning them? People would say something along the line like, “You need a good certificate to get a good job in the future, and these subjects would help you get a good certificate.”
Why? Certificates and exams are the society’s methods of telling us what we’re worth. But different individuals have different abilities and things that they’re good at, so why are a group of individuals being tested on by the same piece of paper?
What I say might make sense to some, and it might not make sense to others. Whatever it is, this is what I feel. Think about it.
No, I am not writing this to whine and complain about everything. I am writing this to voice out my opinion and share it with everyone. Cheers.
