Society of Puppets

0

Enslaved in a never-ending tangle of strings, the puppet is always willing to untie the knots and be free to dance and smile without a care in the world. Always faithful to its master, the puppet moves with grace and ease. So sad the jester is oftimes mistakenly taken for a fool. Then again, perhaps only a fool would be so happy being led and tugged around by strings.

Gone are the days where one had to actually ‘earn’ that trophy showing they put forth their best effort and it paid off. No, now all that matters is that one participated, no matter how much or how little. Effortless…

Gone are the days where a person had to actually put forth the effort to flip a switch so the headlights on the car would illuminate the impending darkness to come. Nope, now your lights come on simply because you can recall how to stick a key in a whole and turn. Careless…

Gone are the days where a child actually has to learn something in school before they are ‘promoted’ or ‘passed’ onto the next grade. No, all that matters is that you stay in school a certain amount of days and make sure you take that state aptitude test so your ‘education’ system can receive their determined amount of funding. Ignorance…

Gone are the days where a child was taught how to index and search a card catalog in order to find… what are those things that are heavy… you mean I actually have to open it up to see what’s inside? Oh… that’s right, it’s a book that is housed in a building known as a library. No… it’s so much easier to look something up on an electric appliance and find where someone else has put forth the effort into posting up a short quip. Laziness… back to the video games

Gone are the days where a child can actually turn to their parents for comfort and advice. Wait… perhaps they might be able to help, if only they were home, or not passed out on the floor.Loveless…

Gone are the days where the majority rules and the Constitution of the United States of America actually carries merit. Not gonna happen! I’m a ‘minority’ and I have more rights, even tho I’m not actually a citizen so therefore the Constitutional laws don’t actually apply to me. Selfish…

Gone are the days where a child can lay on the grass outside and watch the clouds while their mind wanders off into a future actually looked forward to. Now-a-days, children are more concerned about being the best dressed, the most prestigious, the most powerful, the most popular, greedy, selfish, emoistic, bigot they can be toward and against others that seem ‘different’ Wait! I have to finish this level on this game first before… Damn! I lost!!! Thoughtless…

And apparently gone are the days where the people were united in a stance against the gimme gimme disease and took pride in themselves for a job well done. Why bother? All one needs to do now is bitch, lie and complain about how they have life so miserable (because they are uneducated in the resources of the media who expose worse blights across the globe in a different country), and expect nothing less than to be catered to – free medical insurance, free food, free housing, free education, free get-of-jail card… a free ride! Avarice…

Gone are the days where people think for themselves and about others. Tis much simpler to be the fool being led around by those in the positions as ‘master of puppets’.

However, if anyone dare take even a moment to look into an ounce of some not quite so common sense anymore, they would soon realize that a jester’s true role was to entertain; entertain with philosophical panderings designed to elicit a smile, and sometimes deep thought, upon the listeners of the jester’s musings. So in fact, it was a give-take relationship… the so-called puppets were simultaneously being masters of both themselves and the world around them, while at the same time being able to truly experience freedom. Freedom of thought, selflessness, and concern for the remainder of the society puppets.
