In society today there is no such thing as love. Lose doesn’t exist or if it does it has been eradicated. People may think that the biggest problem of the world today is nuclear bombs, or the Muslims, or terrorist and I can tell you that is not the truth. Today’s biggest threat to life, liberty, and happiness is society. Society is that big evil monster overshadowing everything. Much, much worse than the even the best horror movie can reproduce. Society is evil, cruel, and uncaring. Society is dishonesty, hate, and greed. Society is hell, with no salvation. Society does not care.

What society may call love today is a fast paced think called lust, or a means of self-gratification. Society does not care for love anymore. Society wants to feel good, and then go on. Society does not care for its members. I once heard a song that explained why society hates love. I believe it is because they fear it, allow me to share part of this song, “Hero”

“Someone once told me love would all save us,

But how can that be, look at what love gave us

A world full of killing and blood spilling.”

Once in a while there is one born who is not afraid to love, to care and they are cursed. Society sees that they are different, that they are clean and pure. Society must purge them of that. With ruthless efficiency society kills what it does not like, people who give a damn. They care so much they cannot give it up, so society bends them, and bends them, and bends them. Not until they break, no they do not break; but until they shatter and implode with deadly force. Murder by suicide. Do you know why those children did what they did that fateful day of the Columbine shooting? They shattered. They gave up, they were defeated. They cared so much, but one can only take so much hell. Society does not care.

When murder-by-suicide occurs does society care? No, society is only bent on destruction for its comfort. We live in a society where no one cares; apathy is the ruling factor, if not hate. Society accepts no one as they are, you are never good enough. You have to change and change and change. Society is the greatest hate group of all time, worse than the KKK or the Nazi Germany. Society kills as surely as the strongest poison will. Society does not care.

What has happened to the parenting of the world, of “developed” nations? The government does it. Do you know why? Because parents are just too damn lazy to do what needs to be done. To lazy to do their jobs. Hell, it’s just children, they’ll do fine. Besides if we care for them it might get in the way of our comfort. Why should I care? Society does not care.

Society is the largest hate group ever formed. Society hates all who are not part of it and accepts no one as they are. Society demands perfection. You join society to stop the hate emanating from it to you only to realize that doesn’t happen. Society hates its own members as surely as society hates everyone outside of it. Society demands what is impossible to give. Society kills, society hates. Society does not care.

I couldn't have said it better myself. I live around people who are the way they are because their parents didn't do their job. I see it daily. Society is a monster, but unfortunantly it is one that will take a long time to surpress. I salute you.
