The Game of Life and How We Can Change It

Fuck the system! I hate dealing with money! I hate the corrupt politicians and bankers! I hate the wars and the violence and the rape! I hate the corporate greed, the mainstream media, and the goddamn soul-sucking Illuminati vampires! I hate it all, and I want it to go away!

Phew. There, I said it.

I know I’m not alone in my feelings of disdain for the system. Honestly, who out there really likes dealing this crap? It’s absolutely unnecessary, but for some reason, it continues to exist.

Why don’t we do something about it? Why don’t we change the system, restructure it so that it’s free and easy and fun for everyone?

If life is nothing more than a big virtual reality game, then why does it suck so much? Didn’t the developers get the memo? Don’t they realize that their game is rigged and that it’s irritating as hell to play with all of these restrictions and imbalances in place?

When I play video games, I love having the freedom to do whatever I want. Sure, there are always some type of rules in place, but they’re crafted to enhance and support the experience, not diminish it.

The games I like to play don’t involve all of the mundanity of everyday life. I get to travel wherever I want, complete compelling quests, get rewarded for my work, and have a blast doing all of it. Even the more mundane tasks like buying and selling items with a merchant are fun and stress-free. Why can’t real life be like this?

Obviously, I don’t expect real life to be an epic adventure where I’m slaying dragons or piloting a starship across the galaxy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be just as fun. Look at the Sims games, for example. They’re basically simulated versions of modern life not too different from reality (at least as far as games go), but without all of the hassle of scarcity and fear and dealing with mundane problems.

And let’s face it, even the mundane problems like cleaning the bathtub and doing laundry are really not a big deal. They’re just a part of life that you get used to as you get older until you don’t even mind them at all.

Okay, so we’ll leave out the requests for the developers to add more epicness and remove the mundanity of the game. We can live without those features, right? So what else stands in the way of life being a truly awesome experience?

The only real issue is the trade system. And again, I can settle for the capitalistic structure, but the fact of the matter is that the wealth is not equally distributed among the players. The majority of us start the game at Level 0 with nothing to our names, ever-struggling to make enough money just to provide the bare minimum for an independent life. We have to slave away at minimum wage jobs, and even if we go through the trouble of earning a college degree and getting an entry-level job, we still aren’t guaranteed enough money to play the game with ease, that is, if we can even get an entry-level job at all.

And what do the thought police say whenever we complain about this? You have no idea how lucky you are! You think you’re entitled to everything, but you’re not! You have to work your way up from the bottom and make something of yourself! And yadda yadda yadda.

Well, you know what I think about this kind of talk? It’s a bunch of utter crap. It’s excuses for a broken system by slaves who are too afraid to do anything about it. So they just preach the classic dogma: The world is the way that it is, and it’s never going to change, so just shut up and deal with it!

Can you blame them for thinking that way? The system has been the same for, at least what the average human perceives, a long time. But does that mean it will never change? Is the human race forever doomed to live in scarcity?

Of course not. That’s what we’ve been programmed to think, to keep us subservient, but that’s not the truth. We as a people do have the power to change the world as we wish, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen overnight or that it’s going to be easy. We have to be vigilant. We have to work together. And most of all, we have to not just believe, but know it is possible.

We are much more powerful than we give ourselves credit for. Human beings have accomplished amazing feats, and our abilities are just going to increase even more as we advance and evolve as a species. So why can’t we achieve this? Changing our system of trade is nothing compared to the technological feats we accomplish on a daily basis.

Obviously, the problem has never been lack of ability. It’s no mystery that this change has not occurred because the so-called Powers That Be on this planet do not want it to happen, and are always counteracting anyone who tries to change it.

So is that it? Is it just some particular group of humans on the planet who are ruining the game for the rest of us? When you put it into perspective, it seems really ridiculous, actually. Are we really just sitting around and letting this happen before our eyes? All of the violence and wars and hunger and injustice and greed—all because we keep saying to each other, again: The world is the way that it is, and it’s never going to change, so just shut up and deal with it!

How fucking lame is that? What a bunch of nonsense. And anyone who says that crap is a damn coward and deserves a good backhand. How can anyone in their right mind get on with that type of mindset? And how can those of us who know better not say anything back to them?

It’s time that we stopped giving in to these thought police people. Obviously we need to be realistic about things, people gotta eat I understand, but regardless, we have to stop the vicious cycle from continuing by expressing our truth and taking responsibility for not only ourselves, but our people and our planet.

This means opting out of the soul-sucking habits that many of us have become addicted to. Enough with the politics and the evening news and the McDonald’s and the celebrity worship. Enough of all the garbage we put into our bodies and allow into our minds. We are so much better than the shells of people that we’ve become, and we can’t keep settling for less.

Change is possible, but only if we commit to it. We can say we want it all we want, but that means nothing if we don’t follow through with action. It’s like saying you’re going to quit drinking then going to a party and giving in to the peer pressure. Have some damn self-respect! Stand up for yourself and your principles. Enough with the weak-minded slave mentality. That is learned behavior, and it is not who you really are. You have to go beyond your comfort zone and conditioned apathy and push yourself, just like with physical exercise. You go slow and increase the reps or weight as you progress, and the mind works the same way.

In fact, it’s all a mind game. The entire money game is nothing but a psy-op to disconnect us from our inner strength, and as I said, you must be vigilant! You can’t allow the victim mentality to overpower you. You’re the hero in the game, remember? The people of the world are counting on you, and if you falter, we’re doomed.

Is that too much responsibility for you? Too bad. You didn’t enter the game to go on vacation. You came to defeat the bad guys and learn the strength of your character along the way.

So maybe I lied. I said we’re not here to play an epic game, but that’s not true. Real life is an epic game, but only if you’re up for the challenge. What are you willing to take on? How big are you? You’re perfectly capable of defeating the big bad boss in other games, so why not this one? I mean come on, it’s just a bunch of humans, no different from you! They eat, shit, and sleep just like the rest of us, the only difference being they use their power to control the world. So what? We have superior strength and numbers, yet we cower in the corner like scared little children!

And look, I’m not trying to perpetuate the us vs. them scenario, like with the Occupy Movement’s 99%-1% mantra. Even if it’s true, more divide and conquer is not what we need. Instead of placing anymore blame on the people who support the slavery system, let’s not even think about them. They can play their pitiful world domination game all they want, but it will not amount to anything once we come together.

Think of it like a bully on a playground. The other kids follow the bully around out of fear, but once someone else stands up to the bully, the other kids leave the bully behind and thus he loses his power.

We have to be like that kid who stands up to the bully. We can’t keep being apathetic about the situation anymore. We have to confront the unconsciousness that surrounds us and slice through it with the power of truth. As the saying goes: Be the change you wish to see in the world. Leading by example is the most effective way to teach, and when you make the effort, the impact is always much greater than you imagined. You just have to think beyond yourself. You have to expand beyond your comfortable little box and become a living, breathing representation of the highest good. It can’t just be about you and what your ego wants anymore. It has to be greater. It has to be global. It has to be about the children of your children and the future of the entire human race. That is your responsibility, and those who are neglecting this responsibility need to be reminded.

We have been programmed to only care for the well-being of ourselves and our friends and family, but not for the other people outside of that circle. Those other people that our parents deemed as strangers belong to the same human family and share the same home planet that we do. There are no other countries, and there are no borders. It’s all one planet, and yet we are so sure that those strangers who live on a different chunk of dirt than us are somehow any different than us. Sure, maybe they look a bit different and speak a different verbal language, but ultimately they have the same exact needs and desires as us and deserve the same love and respect that we give to others.

How long are we going to continue with these wars and this us vs. them mentality? Why do billions of dollars go toward protecting the homeland against “foreign threats” when those “threats” are nothing more than other people like us? If we simply shifted the distribution of wealth from the military to the people everything would change. We would immediately have the game we’ve always wanted to play without any of the problems.

So why don’t we get on it? Why don’t we seriously make this happen? I know we can do it, we just have to stand strong and stand together. Demand change in the world by embodying those ideals. Speak out against unconsciousness and the evil of the slavery system. The thought police will certainly be there to dissuade you, but don’t let them. Their words are nothing but hot air compared to the power of your truth. Their fear is powerless and it is not going to stop you. They will come around eventually or they won’t. Who cares. It’s not your problem to change them, only to assert your truth and move on. Laugh in the face of danger, I say, and be the hero you were born to be. That is the only way that the game will change, and the opportunity lies in our hands.
