Monday Moaning Control Freaks!
Every time I think of the title I do have to smile a little as it somehow also reflects back to me. After all this is what we humans do and love the most. It goes so far that we even try to manipulate and control nature to suit our needs instead of having it suit its own needs. That being if nature has needs.
We are a crazy bunch in that respect, that we even think we can and go through it as far as have it become idiocy itself. It does not end there though as we have proven and will proof in later times again and again.
This may seem a bit harsh to say but this is who I think we have become or are. The reflection is staring right there back at me. I, who has done the same things over and over and even cooperated with it, thought about it and created that same idiocy. I took it as my responsibility to do so and how wrong I was.
Can one look in the world and say we let things to change?
No nothing. Everything we look at is controlled in some form or way. Nature isn’t nature anymore since the day we put a fence around it so it would be kept. But by god if we see to many bugs or animals who could possibly destroy that patch of nature we start controlling its population. In a way we have lost our connection with nature.
It is in our nature as we consider ourselves the smartest ones on this planet. And somehow made ourselves belief we are the people to keep everything in check. As if nature never had a way of doing so?
Funny way of thinking, for some smart ass walking bald monkey, don’t you think? Though some say or have proven our DNA matches a fly even better. Go figure.
But everything we come up with is a form. A piece of paper that needs to fill in and filed, yet all it does is shoving the responsibility onto someone else. That is our way of controlling. Or one way at least.
Yes I have done that and many with me. Create forms, based on thought up protocols, so we could point guilty fingers at someone else.
Protocols the best way to show we need to control everything. And if there isn’t any we make one so that it becomes controllable. I am guilty of these things and I am sure we aren’t done yet.
I agree with those who will come to me and say that we need rules and protocols to work efficiently, though that is just a nice way of saying we need to make MORE money. We need to establish a guideline. All this, is needed In order to keep a constant quality.
But then a fun thing happens. Soon as a protocol isn’t working or the control is lost. We kind of see this happening in Europe with the constant stream of refugees. And it confuses us, we are in disarray. Because who are we to blame.
Well, nobody apparently, since there wasn’t anyone who came up with a protocol in order to control this kind of thing. Soon enough we will have a thick rapport with a new protocol if this kind of thing may ever occur again. Just so we know what to do in that situation. And it gives us someone to blame if it goes wrong.
Control we build our lives around it.
Everything around us is under our control. Though in that lies also a danger. Because who controls all that information? And who will take responsibility if it does go wrong.
If we look at nature as it is, we see earth somewhat retaliate for what we have done to her. We sued up her resources and she might be saying; it is enough. She might throw an earthquake our way or a big wave to wash the shores clean of high priced housings. But nobody of us is taking responsibility.
True enough it is hard to tell whether or not we are the guilty ones, but it does make you think that we might be forcing our control a little to much onto her.
And if it is not to control her growth it is to control our need for her resources to satisfy our consumerism.
On the flip side of things we are also looking into ways to give up control. Though looking closer to it we will be controlled even more. But that might just be my mind thinking.
Cars driving by itself, it is the new best thing. But who controls the car, who will take responsibility if something does go wrong. Will it be the one who created the streets we drive on, will it be the software creator or maybe it was the map maker who made a mistake.
We are going to rely on others to take control and also take responsibility.
Could it be that is out way of giving away responsibility? DO we hate it that much? To be made accountable for something that we rather give away control to become controlled in some way or form.
For people who are control freaks and we are we sure as hell do not like to take responsibility.
And it shows more and more.
Schools, who take their hands of the issue, whether they could have prevented or had any responsibility when a kid shoots at his class. It was the parent, who in return will say the school should be a safe place. And the bullies were to blame.
And we write new protocols to prevent it from happening again. But nobody dares to take responsibility and look at themselves and try to tackle something at the root instead of writing a protocol with new rules. So we know what to in case of such event and with stricter rules we hope to control it beforehand.
But have we ever thought that being stricter could also have caused this?
I know we need some form of law and rule, but are we not getting to much accustomed is shoving responsibility away. I mean even these days children learn how to do so.
We are control freaks and want to control as much as we can but we do not want the responsibilities that come with it.
Can we say it works for us or is it getting in our way?
