This weekend I somehow ended up at this weird party playing really strange music. Whenever I looked around, I saw people with spaced out expressions, meaning they were on drugs, bobbing up and down doing strange movements…
The first thing that popped into my head is “why“, as in “why do people do this to themselves?” Well, actually that was the second question. The first question was: “WTF am I doing here?” 🙂
One of my friends even got asked by some chick whether he knew where to get “some coke”. And by coke she didn’t mean Coca Cola.
Unfortunately, many people in the developed world have fucked up priorities and don’t know what to do with themselves. What’s worse, they think they are “cool” for doing it.
“Look at me, I am so high!”
“I just wanna get drunk!”
“Let’s go sniff some coke!“
During the summer, I was traveling in Thailand and made it to the island of Koh Phangan. I ended up meeting one Dutch guy whose sole purpose for traveling was to get high. His entire time in Thailand, he spent smoking weed and chasing some shady characters to get ecstasy and cocaine…
I don’t even wanna know what type of effects these fucked up combinations of drugs can have on your body, but whatever…it’s his body. What angers me is the fact that all these people don’t realize what type of a disastrous effect their attitude has on entire communities of people in different parts of the world.
Thousands of innocent people die every year, so that some of these useless tools could get their smoke up. Entire communities of people are uprooted, families slaughtered or living in fear, just so that some unemployed druggie or failed investment banker can get their daily fix.
To put this in perspective:
“Last week, the Mexican government released new data showing that between 2007 and 2014 — a period that accounts for some of the bloodiest years of the nation’s war against the drug cartels — more than 164,000 people were victims of homicide.“
Much of these deaths are due to the rising cycle of violence brought on by Mexico’s drug cartels.
Thousands of innocent people were among the victims. Some of these deaths have been hugely brutal.
Why all this violence? Because some overprivileged kids want to get fucked up…
That’s not saying that all this violence is due to drugs. There would still be violence in Mexico without them, but it would be much lower.
Billions of dollars are spent to fight the “War on Drugs” every year. And you know what the main problem is: all the fucked up kids (and retarded adults) buying those drugs.
As someone said: “without demand, there would be no supply.”
Unfortunately, most people don’t consider the consequences of their actions. They have a solipsistic, narcissistic view of the world. But what can you expect from people whose entire bane of existence is to check into places and take selfies.
If you have ever bought or consumed drugs, then you are the reason for this:
