Ugliness and Ghosts, anything in common?

This idea just came up to me in a random day, when I was doing a random thing. I think I was watching TV or maybe in the bathroom, doing…. bathroom stuff.
What ugliness and ghosts have in common? Well, the answer is quite simple, they don’t exist. I know it sounds weird, but don’t just judge the book by its cover.
I will now show you my points of view, who confirm what I just wrote.

For this issue, my argument will have something that you can see everyday in the streets. Children. Yeah, children. Those who sometimes unconsciously,  tell the things you don’t want to hear, or answer. Children will help me to solve this problem.

Ugliness, and ugly things or ugly aspects, are constantly present in our days.  If your eyebrows are so big that make only one eyebrow, it’s ugly. If you have big eyes, you are an ugly fish. If you have a little heavier than others, you are ugly. If you have a big nose, you are ugly, so on. Just like ghosts, since you are born, you are brainwashed, hear and see these insults and opinions everywhere. Television, magazines, games, stories….

Children would not believe in ghosts if they never heard about it. Children wouldn’t even think of something like that. Just like “ugly aspects” are only ugly, because all of your life, you have been told it’s ugly. If you were born where big noses or other body characteristics were normal aspects, and nobody told you it was strange or ugly, you wouldn’t even think, that something was ugly or not. Just like ghosts, if a child never had contact with stories of ghosts, she wouldn’t even know what they “are” and wouldn’t think about it. It’s simple.

I do find some things more attractive  than others, but that’s personal taste, it’s not that I find one ugly and the other not, I just prefer one to another. And yes, I’m a bad example, for example I think it’s ugly those “uni eyebrows” but it’s not my fault, it’s societies fault. I’m not trying to escape and blame others because of what I think it’s ugly. But I am sure that if nobody got brainwashed by our society to see an “ugly” thing, that it’s simply something normal, only different from me, I would probably find everything normal.

Kony, The New Bin Laden?

Kony2012 is a charity/intervention project, whose objective is to arrest Joseph Kony. Joseph Kony is the leader of the LRA, a Ugandan guerrilla group. He’s in the top 10 most wanted criminals in the world. Through his religious beliefs, Kony and the LRA, kidnapped thousands of children, forcing them to be soldiers and sex slaves. Those children are forced to mutilate others, and kill their own families. All of this in the name of a “God” that speaks through Kony.
In May 2012, his name traveled the Internet, mainly amongst teens. A 30 minute documentary was made, promoting a charity project called “Invisible Children”, and asking the public to make Kony famous, so the U.S.A heard about the story of those children, and sent american troops to arrest Kony, as fast as possible. The website of the project Kony2012 has different kinds of merchandising to sell, and teens felt immediately that they had to help, so thousands and thousands of Kony2012 products were sold.

The problem is that nobody questioned the cause, before they had bought  the merchandising to help this project. After some research, people can discover that only 30% of the money raised  from the selling of their products, goes to help the children in Africa. I don’t know where the rest of the money goes.
Another  information that all of the viewers of that documentary should know, is that, recently was found an immense quantity of oil, evaluated  in trillions of dollars. And taking advantage of a criminal for invading a certain region is not new, as we seen with the Bin Laden and 9/11 story, and the weapons of mass destruction, that never existed.

Unfortunately we live in a world where all of the stories, news and information that we receive have always to be checked more than one time. It’s really important nowadays, to not trust in anything until a good research is made before any kind of support or opinion. We usually have the urge to help those who seem to be helping, without even research the “back story”, the truth. And that, is being naive. In this world we cannot be naive, or we, or other people will die. And yes, it’s that serious.
Even if the Kony2012 project has good intentions, we and they can’t forget that there are always some guys that always take advantage of good people that really want to help. It’s good to be suspicious, but it isn’t good to alienate an idea  just because it didn’t work the first time, or the people couldn’t execute that idea well.

Fortunately, this Kony thing actually brought something good to the teens who watched the video. It grew an activist inside of them, that they didn’t know. And even some of them learned from U.S.A vs Middle East bullshit, and immediately questioned and researched, before taking any naive and early conclusions. And this the “big boys” (the fuckers with all of the money), weren’t expecting.
They should be scared, because, in the end, we are still animals. And when animals feel trapped and without an exit, they attack. And that is about to happen.
Be careful rich people!

Suit Up

Believe it or not, people still have doubts on the subject that I’m going to analyse in here.
I was once watching the news on the TV, where top politicians were all together smiling and shaking each other hands, wasting time taking photos, instead of trying to find solutions. Back to the issue, I noticed that all of them have fancy suits, super shining shoes, and incredibly expensive cars.
So, I shared with my family that if they wore less expensive clothes, and had affordable cars, maybe that money could help their own countries. For my surprise, someone answered me that, they need to dress up nice, after all, they are representing our country. I was overwhelmed by such stupidity.

I came up with a simple question, would you prefer a president that had solutions but dressed up like a homeless, or a president that doesn’t do shit but is always “well dressed”?
Believe it or not, people actually stopped to think about it, when their answer should obviously be, the president that can actually solve problems. Instead, people told me that of course they would want a president that could solve their problems, but he had to dress up nice, a president can’t wear a t-shirt and some jeans. I couldn’t believe in what I was hearing! People actually cared about the looks of the president.

First of all, most of government representatives, that represent different parts of the population, don’t actually represent us, but themselves. Most of them just spend their time insulting other members of the parliament. Nowadays, government is just like football (soccer). They gain millions, and the only thing they do is just bitch about how they are better than others. Football stars gain millions and millions, for buying mansions and sports cars, and do they do? Run after a ball for 90 minutes.

I think a maximum wage could be a really good solution for this kind of problem. Money will be saved for important things, like the fucking country, not some rich people. Waste of money by the members of the parliament would be stopped, and minimum wage, could actually raise. We would have a more just distribution of money and people would learn how to behave with money on their hands, without spending everything in expensive cars and Armani fucking suits.

“Think rich, look poor” – Andy Warhol
This quote just resumes the whole message I am trying to share. You have to think and innovate and you don’t need to be dressed with a suit to do it.

Religion is a Fantasy

The beginning of mankind was so spectacular, as stupid. It was a complete paradox, one of the most fantastic evolutions and, at the same time, one of the most catastrophic known to this day. Knowledge was actually what distinguished us, from others.

The discovery of fire, tools, art. The passage from nomadism to sedentism, was probably  what changed us for ever. But something had a tremendous impact, felt even today, in our constantly changing society. It was the phase of fears and fantasies, not to call them something more aggressive like, ignorance. I am referring of course, to religion or religions. Just like in the present, we all go through a time of our life where we start to question everyone and everything. Death and birth, the land and the sky, us and others. All of our ancestors have been through that too. And because in that era, our knowledge was still small and limited, fantasies predominated.

Human mind has some kind of “hunger” to know and understand more. And it’s that will, that distinguish us from other animals. All living beings, those that have the ability to move, have the instinct to know the unknown, all animals want to see and learn about the territory where they live, but humans have an additional  instinct beside this one. Humans have the will and the need to understand and find an answer to what doesn’t seem to have an answer.
But not always that will bring the right answers, instead, it brings the answers we want.
Religion and it’s beliefs were born, from the moment that humans felt fear, and so, a need to know why they were afraid, and a way to overcome that fear. Fear emerged from the unexplainable and in what harmed both physically and psychologically these humans. Death, stars, universe and disasters, like natural catastrophes began to be represented by something bigger, by gods. Gods were created for good and evil, just like in a super hero movie. There were gods who harmed and scared humans, and gods who fought the bad ones and protected humans from these mean and powerful villains.

But these fantasies created different religions, despite all of them have the same base, ignorance and fear, that is what brought us here today.
Beliefs in something, or someone superior, formed the society in which we now live. The different ways of thinking, good and bad ones, the fantastic explanations to explain the unexplainable, the acts committed in honor of religion and art itself, were tremendously  influenced by religion.

But what we have to understand, is that religion is something from the past, we have more knowledge now, and we have to understand that religion is nothing but lies. It’s only false speculation to understand what humans couldn’t understand at the beginning of their existence. God doesn’t exist, we exist, humans exist, and praying will not solve our problems. We have to solve them. Humans worst enemy, are humans.

Brain

Our minds accomplished amazing and horrible things together.

The beauty of the brain has given us amazing ways to see the world and live in it, but it also has killed millions and millions of people.

Think carefully, and for the good of the world!

You are free to use this wherever and whenever you want it.

Think the Truth!

Muslim Lesbians

This is one of my drawings, I just scanned it to photoshop and played a little bit with the Contrast. I didn’t add, or changed anything, because I’m not the best with  the photoshop, and I’m fucking lazy.

Feel free to use this image whenever you want. It would be nice of you, if you share it, to say that I was the drawer, and mention the site where you found the drawing. Thank you.

Bad truth, Good lies.

Those who don’t accept the truth, are a danger to society.

I can’t understand why people feel offended by this video. I saw this new music video of the band Every Time I Die, and all of the sudden comments saying that it was a offensive video started to rain. If you are too lazy to watch the fucking video, it shows images of humanity at it’s worst.

People shouldn’t get offended with the truth, they should absorb that truth into knowledge. Those that prefer a good looking lie instead of an ugly truth, are a real danger to others. Even if you get sick watching some videos or pictures, you cannot delete them from your head, and think that the problem is solved. You have to see them and understand, how much insanity, blood and horror can be made by the humanity. Where religions, wars and extremisms are strongly responsible for this kind of crimes.

Knowing the real truth, you can (and must) change the bad things of this world, never renouncing the truth.
