Question: Why am I doing this?
Warning: I ask you to read this article with an open mind. Put everything you know aside, and try to think. This article is to make you think, not to spoon-feed you information.
It seems people on this site don't like to think, so to annoy everyone, I am going to make articles to make you think, make these grey-cells work a bit. It is going to involve a lot of rhectorical questions. ^.^
"Why am I doing this?" Ask yourself that question everytime you do something. Let's face it, you're sheep, most of the things you do, you do it because people do it as well. People hardly think for themselves nowadays. Why do you really watch TV? Why do you really dress the way you do? Why do you favorise a group over another one?
This is one of the best advices you'll ever get: Question everything. I can't stress how important it is to think for yourself, trust is good, but never trust blindly. Questioning everything...Sounds easy doesn't it? Most of you will question your everyday activities, if you follow that advice.
Now, that is good, and that does wake you up a bit. However, that is not what I want you to quesiton; we all have beliefs, things that we trust so much we don't even consider the probability that it might be wrong. Religion, principles, education, there must be something, this is what I want you to question. I want you to question the very foundation of your being.
Once you do that, you detach yourself from the herd. You start viewing things from a neutral perspective, become a spectator of this...masquarade.
