Title say it all?


A disunited world


The world has become disunited. We’ve split apart. We’ve allowed government and media to make choices for us instead of making them ourselves. We’ve accepted that certain peple are bad, and certain good, without knowing buggerall about them. We’re being controlled.

But I think it’s time for someone to see the bigger picture and break away from this warped mindset we posess.

If I don’t know a Jew, or a Christian or an Athiest, or anyone from any belief for that matter, I have absolutely no right to judge them. Who knows, they could be better a person than my own fellow people.

Everything is revolving around technology. It’s indoctrinating us. We’ve forgotten how to go for picnics, how to jump and play, we’ve forgotten how to laugh. Instea we sit glued to a TV set, or a laptop. I firmly believe in the days of making mud pies really! J

Girls I know, they’re contantly texting. Constantly watching films. Constantly plugged with their Ipod. Really it’s sad. And seriously irritating. I want to shove that nano thing down their throats.

I mean hey, technology is fun. I have a little notebook and it rocks. I love the internet. But I don’t use it to an annoyingly obsessive leve.

I think all this radiation is getting to our brains!

Kids are maturing faster than their actual age . Teens are becoming suicidal, rude, disgusting. And I blame the media. I blame the trash they show us. Puh! Run a survey on how many people would like to become vampires. I think you’ll clock over a billion. My brother wanted to become Rambo. I mean like…whoa! People are taking all this stuff way too deep. I mean hey! I like Nemo, doesn’t mean I’m going to act like a fish from now on.

We need to stop focusing on the latest Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift gossip and focus on each other. ‘cos these people are milking our cash, taking up all our time and conversations, and they don’t actually care about us.

It’s all about spirit. I think it’s time we stop being blind, and open our eyes for once. Don’t you think?

I 100% agree.
"Run a survey on how many people would like to become vampires." haha so true. -I wanted to become a vampire when I was a kid less than 10 years old, before Twilight by the way. But now even that myth is ruined by pop culture.
"We’re being controlled. " long ago, the chains were on peoples' material bodies. Now they found ways to bind our spirits. And it now seems hopeless. How can anything change when everyone is taught to be a citizen of his country and culture and reject anything else, when we're raised in a world that is constructed against nature and on piles of lies, when everyone is trained to fight against anyone and when money has replaced everything holy -and I don't mean god, because I don't believe in god, but I believe in human values, in humanity, in freedom and art, emotions and ideas- ?
How can anything change???
Awesomely expressed, well done Khano. Jazakallah.

I am so glad you wrote this article. Every word you say is 100% correct. As a child we played, we laughed, we had very little in the way of material things as World War 2 had just ended and here in England and things were scarce, but life to us was wonderful. It makes me so sad when I hear young people being suicidal, depressed etc when they should be enjoying every day. It's so refreshing to meet a young person as inspirational as you. Many blessings.

You bring up a very interesting point! The world will never be united until we all stop categorizing each other and putting labels on one another. It's in human nature to live divided. Now on the topic of kids wanting to be what they see on the television and what they hear on songs is very true. However, that all starts with the parents. The job of the parents is to mentor the children so when they can become adults they can take on the world. In the animal world if the child of an animal is unable to adapt, it dies. People don't think our world is like that but it is. People with a childish mentality won't get very far in life or won't get what they aspire for. Anyway, you bring up a great arguement for the problems of today and the future. Actions speak louder than words and I believe if you want to change something be the change yourself and set the example. Nice post! You've got my props! Take Care.....

Yes, united we stand divided we fall. Shoulda added that too. :). Yes that's true, how are the kids supposed to protect themselves from the harms of media when they're parents themselves are exposed to it. Parents need to jack up too. I'm saying us, the youth, with our own brains and mentality, we can make a difference too. Yeah, u can change the world by changing urself first. Thanks for the comment. :D.

I fully agree with the message of your article. We are influenced by what is around us and lose touch with the true meaning of our existence. Great piece if writing. I like it.

Gratias! I appreciate it!

I didn't need to read anything more than the title, to know every opinion about this. You do touch several subjects, some sweeter than others.
I agree with technology changing us, but unfortunately we can't remain nostalgic and conservative forever.

Blame the media for showing us shit.
I'd say: Blame the media for showing us selective shit.
If I would have chosen, I'd always hear the full truth and nothing but it. They keep us confused with all the small details and focus on what they are allowed to release. Whenever a government does something they don't like to share with the world, the media is easily paid off. (Financial crisis of 2008 that spread across Europe and America is one example of where Bush left with money that ruined a keen balance. All the details of the event is still not clear to the general public, but we've been held up with other details that confuse us).

@TheBeast1026: "It's in human nature to live divided." It is human confusion to listen to the people MAKING us divided. They tell us we are meant to be selfish, but are we really, in nature?

I'll stop here, the subject is too large for the 1000 word limit here.

Nicely written piece Khano.

That's very true, we can't remain conservative. And don't get me wrong it is not particularly the technology...I do blame the selective media for broadcasting ideas that have changed too many youngsters for the worst.
I'd have to say that is a question I can't answer. Though I will say that it is becoming increasingly difficult to find "selfless" people. Haha, yes, we grudge the "like it" and "word limit" here on booksie. Thank you for your input.

I'll admit that i LOVE my Ipod to unsafe extremes. And that i have been accused of gluing my phone to my hand a few times. Though, i also think that it's the generation before us that did this to us. I mean, i see first graders with cell phones!! FIRST GRADERS!!!!! The only reason i got my own phone was because my mom was afraid of me coming home to en empty house. I'm not saying it's all their faults, but sometimes i wonder what kind of world we would be living in if these parents put their foot down on things like that. If we only had a certain amount of time we could spend watching tv each day, and (God forbid) if we weren't allowed to use facebook, or myspace, or (tear, tear) booksie, and if we couldn't play xbox or wii when ever we want to. If there we didn't have so much open access to technology, maybe we would end up spending more time outside, playing like little kids and making friends--maybe that would humble us more... And here i am again, thinking about things. Gosh, quit doing that!! haha, quit leaving me with things to think about!!!!! I am perfectly fine with having nothing on my mind at all times!!!! xD still, nice work, i loved it--even though it made me think...

Tue, July 26th, 2011 7:39pm


Ipod is music... haha and well that's how "we" keep in touch eh?? ;P... I see much worse. I went to a fair last week and there was a group of seven/eight year olds exchanging numbers and flirting [it was adorable...yet freaky]. Where are their parents???
Yes, I wish we would humble ourselves and fulfill our time righteously rather than investing futile chunks into unnecessary things. I'm not saying abandon internet and technology, of course not, it has aided us in maaany things [like meeting you! ;P]. Oh I'm glad I'm making you think!! Go and sleep now! I think I've worked your brain too much!
