A simple but profound question for all of you btw:
When you're in America and look around and see nothing but consumerism everywhere, dont you wonder or ask yourself:
What exactly is the point of life in America? I dont get it. Just to work and pay bills and go shopping and consume products? Isnt there supposed to be some higher purpose or meaning beyond that? Why does no one else openly ask this or question this? No one on the news media does, thats for sure. Lol.
Did God or the goddess or the universe put us here and create this world, just so we can sit in an office all day and do tedious tasks, just so we can collect a paycheck and then go shopping for consumer goods? Is that the purpose of life? Whats the point? Seems so empty and meaningless and robotic, like part of a mechanical control system.
Am i the only one who feels this way? Why isnt this discussed openly?
People dont even talk to strangers in america. They just go about and do their thing - work, consume, drive home, etc. Whats the point?
What if i asked a therapist or psychologist these questions? Lol. Would they diagnose me with something and prescribe medication? Lol. Whats wrong with asking honest questions? Why is that so taboo? Why should i continue living a pointless routine just because everyone is doing it too?
Did our souls come to earth just to slave away in a job or office or factory just to pay bills? Where is the freedom and control or meaning and purpose? Why doesn't society or the media or education system address these questions? All that our society and schools tell you is to get a good job so you can make money and have a comfortable material life in a nice house. Etc. They dont address any of my questions. Lol. Why not? Why not let me go on CNN or the news and ask these questions, like peter finch did in the movie "Network" in 1976? Lol
Furthermore, i dont get why so many American soldiers died in all of America's wars of the last 250 years, both foreign and domestic. What did they die for? So that people in america and drive to work and earn a paycheck and pay bills and shop for consumer products at walmart and target, etc? Lol. Thats the purpose of american freedom thats worth dying for or risking your life for? Lol. Why do you need "american freedom" to do that? Lol. In any country in the world, one can get a job and earn a wage and pay bills, and shop for consumer products, etc. You can do that anywhere in any country, no matter what the political system is. So why fight for "american freedom" just so you can do what you can do anywhere else in any country? It makes no friggin sense!
Dont you ever wonder about all this too? Dont you ask these questions too? Even if its just to yourself? Dont you ever ponder such questions and musings? Lol
Anyway I'd better stop here before i become depressed and sink into despair like many great deep philosophers have, such as Nietzsche and Schopenhauer, etc. Lol
You get my drift right? When you think about all this, especially in america where theres no social connection and everything is isolated and business only - without warmth, sincerity or closeness like this lithuanian lady said in her interview with robert stark - then you realize that it makes no friggin sense at all!!!!!!! Period!!!!!!
Isnt it better you dont think about this at all? Lest you become insane and lose your marbles and become a further misfit than you already are? Lol. Any thoughts? (If you dare that is lol)
