If you think our society is civilized, I ask you why.
Because we have clean clothes?
Because we have homes made of wood
And metal and not branches and mud?
Because we don’t tear each other’s skin off daily?
Because we speak English?
Society is the least civilized thing I have ever experienced.
We drive each other to the point of
We drive each other to slit
knife’s across our own flesh,
We cause each other to jump over that ledge,
We destroy other things for our own
We kill, torture things and laugh,
We ruin a planet that gives us the
“pleasure” of living,
We are cruel, beautiful, suicidal,
Most of us ignorant, judgmental, mind blowing, intricate, creatures.
But the thing is 98% of humans are not civilized.
