The World

Well.
After the initial shock of the American presidential election outcome has somewhat subsided I feel the need to talk a little bit about what seems to be going on in the world.
No, I’m obviously not a Trump supporter, but that is actually beside the point.

There’s this wave that seems to be sweeping over the world nowadays, of people digging their heels in and refusing to fall in line anymore.
Here in Sweden the Sweden Democrats have surprisingly grown from nothingness to the largest party in just a few years. A party that I in no way support, yet I can see quite clearly the reasons for this happening.

Romantic comedies, beauty products, copious amounts of food…
And TPTB want us to! They encourage it.
“Because you’re worth it”
It’s a conspiracy theory. The other way around.

This one draws our attention AWAY from the governments and the political situations of the world. It implores us to turn our focus to ourselves, our own well-being.
Subtly it lulls us into a soft reality. Encouraging us to stick our heads in the sand and drift off to sleep, while whispering in our ears “all is well, no one is committing genocide anywhere and greed and pure evil doesn’t rule.”
