This is a bit of a personal post. But “fuck the police.”
I grew up abiding to the system. “the” being almost every system within a system. And when I say “abiding” I mean being subdued to the point where I didn’t realize I was being suppressed. So goes the saying “Ignorance is bliss.”
I lived my life following a trail left by settlers and my life was simple. I wasn’t rich, but my parents supported my education. What would give them a reason not to? They didn’t know any better. They grew up in the same system with the same ideals as I did. What a cycle of misguidance.
As I worked my way through junior high, the dmv lines, high school, and then to college, I stopped to reflect on my direction. Basically, this is what I planned for my life: go to school, get a job, get married, have kids, retire, and die. Now I looked at that path and I questioned whether or not I really wanted to pursue that course. After all, this was my only life and coming out of high school, these were the most vital years of my life. My choice was now.
I went through an entire phase of open-mindedness. I allowed myself to ask questions such as “why” and came to the conclusion that I didn’t want to wait until I was near-death to experience life.
So I ridded myself from things that kept me immobile and prevented me from expressing my true behavior. I’ve abandoned organized religion which led to the ability to experience life in a new light. This experience led me to come up with a simple conclusion: only the suppressed are rebellious. If you give people the right to do what they want, they will do what they want. If you conform them to do what you tell them to, they will try in all their power to challenge your rules.
I’m considering dropping out of college and taking on a different route all together. Because I am tired of the educational system. I am tired. and yes, I am Ruthless. Let’s begin.
