Bob Dylan once said: “You’re going to die. You’re going to be dead. It could be 20 years, it could be tomorrow, anytime. So am I. I mean, we’re just going to be gone. The world’s going to go on without us. All right now. You do your job in the face of that, and how seriously you take yourself you decide for yourself ” .
The society nowadays is ruled by certain ethos, and everyone that stands aside of those ethos, usually become pariahs. We see how the society keeps judging rockers, gay marriage and some ideas. The world is superficial, it`s all about the aspect and the way you blend with those ideas, the way you fit in the community. Let`s think about bullies, society created them, maybe the familial environment had a little to do with it, but society created a certain pattern we all have to mould around. If you are fat, weak and you show your emotions, you are judged and bullied. Some ideas tend to shock the world, and are not well-received. Let`s think about Martin Luther King Jr., he said : “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. “ (1963, March on Washington). For these ideas he was assassinated, but the ideas are bulletproof, that’s why his “dream” became true and it is still on-going in our days. The black community are no longer discriminated by the other communities, and even more they have mileage, the incumbent U.S President since 2008 is a black man, Barrack Obama, thing that strengthens the ideas above.
“Life is like a game of tetris, if you fit in you disappear”(anon.), this is the quote that has ruled my life, I don`t want to be like the others, we all are unique, the difference makes us who we are. If you want to be well-known forget the pattern, create your own. We can`t change the world if we stay on the matrix, nothing will change. Think about all the inventions and all the theories that changed the world, if those men fitted in, we would still be in the medieval age, if not in the stone age.
I want to change the world, I don’t like what I see around me. People think that they are perfect and they think they are in the position to criticize the others. Don`t criticize the aspects, go for the knowledge, but don’t be too cruel, just be a reminder of the importance of information in the pursuit of notoriety and bringing the world in the point of making it better. We are the same, but we want the world changed, although we criticize the ones who are trying to change it, and we are making them give up.
I`ll end with a quote from a well-known character “If nobody hates you, you are doing something wrong.”(Dr. Gregory House, Fox Broadcasting Company`s House M.D.). If you are an outcast, you are on the right way.
