luxe

whoever said "i think therefore i am" could not have been born today. the only thing "thinking" can assure us of is an unhappy life. the thinking man is one who revels in self torture. imagine thinking of that street puppy you saw being left mutilated by an irresponsible cabbie. of all the carcinogens in the air you breathe and the food you eat. of your favourite artist who died unrecognised. of the purpose of your existance. of the politicians who seek to represent us. the meaninglessness of it all.

to be ignorant and is a luxury many of us are not afforded. what bliss is ignorance. to swim with the tide. to not have to think and carry on carrying on. to care a fuck. with no conscience there to bother you. to not have to think of tomorrow.

It is true that thinking can lead to us realising what society has become. Depressing, to say the least. However, it is not until we start thinking that we actually have the power to change. We live in a turbulant world, and each and every one of us has the power to turn the tide....

Ignorance may be a bliss, but knowledge is divine!

Fiddle,
Thanks for stopping by my site. I am not sure I agree with you on this post though. If we weren't thinking, we could not be thinking of our loved ones when we're apart from them. We could not be thinking philosophical thoughts (which are not at all depressing). Why does one always have to think negative things? Look at all the lovely things I was thinking of recently:
