The documentaries I've watched recently have all talked about and brought forth issues I've known existed but have explored them to a whole new depth. Some issues: how unbelievably fucked up ALL corporations are. Yes, this includes Goodwill (they are awful). How shallow America is, how much outer beauty is stressed and if you're not beautiful, nobody cares what you do. Disgusting. Most of the ones I've watched do mostly with corporate greed, minimum wage, loopholes = the government ruining so many lives in order to treat the rich like extra special puppies. I own a business and I pay taxes, I support this nasty and ruthless government (the FDA ain't protecting us, ps), and here I am ranting about it. Shouldn't I do instead of write? I still feel so lost, but far less than I had before. I feel as if I know how I can find true happiness and joy. Becoming sovereign is a neat idea, but I've became so used to the lifestyle I live now and society has brainwashed me from the moment I was born to treasure and appreciate the wrong things. Is it worth it to sacrifice my tastebuds and preferences in life in order to make a drastic change? I am only one person, will I make a difference?
I am going to consciously change so many aspects of my life, more than I already have which to the eyes of others may already be considered drastic. It's time to stop being so selfish and help others in their time of need and be a kind soul, just because. It will probably be very difficult, but all changes, both big and small are always difficult for me to accept. Anyways, I mostly just recommend to any of you with spare time on your hands to spend it watching some eye-opening documentaries, not comedy drama horror or romance films but real true factual gritty docs. I wish I was creative and ballsy enough to make my own documentary, but for now, I'm just here to appreciate commend and spread the word about them.
Here's a list of some I've watched in the past few years that have stuck with me and affected me heavily:
〮Children Underground (really, really, really recommend)
〮Dive! (really, really recommend)
〮America the Beautiful (really recommend)
〮Vanishing of the Bees
〮Forks Over Knives
All are available for streaming on Netflix, some also available on YouTube. I will continue to post on this blog as per usual, but just wanted to publish a little update on my life. Have a peaceful rest of the day, my friends. ❀
