Those who do not see what is truly going on in this modern world choose not to see what is truly going on in this modern world because they don’t want to see it.
Those who have chosen not to see what is truly going on in this modern world have chosen to turn away from the Truth. They have actually chosen to become morons. Most people are not inherently morons, but it is a wonder that many people actually choose to become morons because they do not want to see the Truth.
Those who have chosen to see what is truly going on in this modern world know the Truth. They have chosen to see what is truly going on in this modern world because they love the Truth and want the Truth, no matter how unpleasant or even disturbing it might be.
In the context of this modern world, the Truth is becoming more and more difficult to take. This is due to the fact that this modern world is constantly becoming more lost, more perverse, more corrupt, more depraved, more degenerate and more idiotic. This is indeed the Truth about this modern world.
Not only is the Truth about this modern world becoming more and more difficult to take, but this modern world produces an ever-increasing amount of embellishments, illusions, spectacles, distractions, deceptions and lies that are meant to prevent people from seeing the Truth. For most people, all of this artifice, falsity and bullshit serve well enough to keep them from seeing the way things are truly going in this modern world.
The New Age obsessions with peace and love contribute largely to the choice people make not to see the way things are truly going in this modern world. Rather than trying to understand things truly with their minds, people are encouraged to pursue the objects of their emotions. Anything that feels good, anything that makes one happy, anything that makes one forget, anything that provides an escape, anything but facing the Truth.
By choosing to see only what their hearts want to see, many people will choose to “look on the bright side”, which means ignoring and avoiding the unpleasant Truth at all costs. But for an increasing proportion of people, the objects of their emotions seem to be more on the dark side. This quite obviously is a function of the real prevailing conditions of this modern world which are not quite completely hidden by the modern cult of artifice, falsity and bullshit.
The increasingly absurd nature of the sentimental pursuits of modern people is striking, such as all of the idiotic social drama that young people apparently crave in this modern world. Of course, the modern phenomenon of social media (Facebook) plays a major role in encouraging this blatantly mindless tendency. Closely related to this is the mind-boggling proliferation of perverse, degenerate and idiotic videos on sites like Youtube.
Not only are sexual deviants in general encouraged and celebrated in this modern world, but forms of extreme and even criminal sexual deviance are constantly increasing, and increasingly being publicized. What are people supposed to think about the recent revelations about pedophile rings involving various celebrities, officials and politicians (Sandusky, Saville)? Maybe people are supposed to think that justice will be done and everything will be just fine…
There are a great many social ills, evils and wrongs that are routinely ignored by the general public, as if pretending that these social ills, evils and wrongs will go away if they are simply ignored. Or perhaps people believe that their governments will make everything all better real soon with some really pretty band aids…
Me? Cynical? Absolutely! And I have every good reason to be cynical.
I see what is truly going on in this modern world. I see it because I have chosen to see it, rather than choosing not to see it. And I have chosen to see it because I love the Truth above all. It is therefore perfectly impossible for me to be dissuaded or distracted from the Truth by all of the pleasant and lovely and wonderful things of this modern world.
If only I could become a moron like everyone else, so that I too might be blissfully ignorant of the truly hopeless nature of this modern world… (sigh)
