Killing Apathy

Ask me anything   Apathy (also called impassivity or perfunctoriness) is a state of indifference, or the suppression of emotions such as concern, excitement, motivation and passion. And my friends, it is useless.

A Poem by Martin Niemoller - who had lived in Nazi Germany

First they came for the communists,

and i didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist. 

Then they came for the socialists,

and i didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,

and i didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,

and i didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then they came for the Catholics,

and i didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Catholic.

Then they came for me,

and there was no one left to speak for me.

On Changing Values

The following is an excerpt of a quote from the book We wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families, a book about the Rwandan genocide in the early-mid 90’s

"For values to change, there has to be an acknowledgement of guilt, a genuine desire for atonement, a willingness to make amends, the humility to accept your mistakes and seek forgiveness.  But everyone says it’s not us, its our brothers, our sisters.  At the end of the day, no one has done wrong.  In a situation where there has been such gross injustice and nobody is willing to seek forgiveness, how can values change?"

Honestly, this guy (Alex Sparx) has one of the most truthful explanations of what America truly is.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love the country I live in and I love the opportunity that comes along with it and I could not be more appreciative of everything I have given because of it, but there are broken parts too.

"If you define mass shootings as four or more people getting shot. We’ve had nearly 250 so far this year. We’ve only had 260 days! Our mass shooting average is 96%. Our mass shooting scores shouldn’t be that much higher than our math and science scores"
