What does the Great Social Order expects of us?

Blog Politics

The leaders of our society are continuously carrying on territorial feuds with one another, or waging vicious character-assassination campaigns against neighbouring rivals. Equipped with social media, a smart phone and the spark of lies, these modern day warriors rode forth in Twitter-chariots lavishly decorated with the deception of truth. Mainstream media recorded the deeds of these new-age chivalry, they are after all the long arm of misinformation.

Is there honour in such confrontation? No. Honour in this day and age is merely a delusional and ancient concept, an excuse to justify their wicked deeds. No, honour does not exist in our lifetime. It has been replaced by barbarism, jealousy, greed, spite and the need to subdue others into compliance to what the Great Social Order expects of us. Toe the line, you will find an uneasy acceptance… and permanent slavery.
