Mad World

​Depending on which country you’re in, and which moghul empire runs the Media Circus, you’ll have heard one side or the other of so-called “current affairs” aka “The News”. You’ll have been fed exactly the type of propaganda the Elite need for you to start sowing the seeds of discord amongst yourselves. Neighbour against neighbour. Parents against children. Race. Religion. Sexual Orientation. Gender. Age. Etc etc. 

United we stand. Divided we profit the Elite. 

Meanwhile, the rich get richer off the backs of the working classes. We are no longer born free, but rather into a lifetime of servitude to the Almighty God called “Money”. The same God sometimes goes by the innocent sounding names of “Progress”, “Industry”, “Retail”, “Sales”, and the not-so innocent sounding names of “Profit”, “Greed”, “Consumerism” and “Materialism”. Different countries have different colloquial names for it too – “Dollar”, “Pound” etc. 

It’s all the same thing. A diversionary tactic. Like War. 

Instead of Humanity standing together, helping each other, working for the greater good, we, our forebears before us, and our children after us, are taught the value of Money. From school age we learn that it’s best to study hard and get good grades, so we can then later study harder and get better grades and become doctors, scientists, engineers…”Useful People”…so that we can then earn lots of Money, buy lots of houses, cars, yachts, holidays abroad etc…and then spend lots of time working and working to pay it off again. 

And if you’re poor and penniless, it must mean you either flunked school, lost your job, are too lazy and never worked in your life, are retarded, are sponging off social security benefits, gambled it all, lost it all on bad investments. Shame on you, being a burden to the rest of Society!

Only, it’s never that cut and dried. There are a myriad of reasons for people struggling to make ends meet. But the Haves would rather slap one label on the Have Nots and turn their backs, than spend another minute wondering how they could help raise up their fellow humans. If only they could spare that precious minute thinking up ways to help the homeless, the poor and destitude, if only they would think about others rather than themselves…

But no…we live in this Mad World. The lyrics of the pop song “Mad World” are posted here, because they are very relevant to today’s Society. Perhaps we could learn a bitter lesson or two.

Apathy and Ignorance are no longer valid excuses. Wake Up!

Tears For Fears (Gary Jules) – Mad World 

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying
Are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
‘Cause I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It’s a very, very
Mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, happy birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what’s my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying
Are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
‘Cause I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It’s a very, very
Mad world
