    10 Facts About Our Society That We Accept As Normal

    1. We prioritize money and the economy over basics like air, water, food quality, our environment and our communities.

    2. We utilize an economic trading system that facilitates the death of millions of people each year.

    3. We divide the worlds land into sections and then fight over who owns these sections.

    4. We call some people "soldiers" [or "cops"] which makes it OK for them to kill other people.

    5. We torture and kill millions of animals everyday needlessly for food, clothing and experiments.

    6. We send children to school for their entire childhood to memorize facts and skills that they will rarely use.

    7. We impose financial pressures on parents, forcing them to miss out on vital stages of their child's development.

    8. We have thousands of religions, each one believing that their God or god-story is the only true and unique version.

    9. Love and compassion, which promotes life, are mocked as facile. Whereas war, which harms life, is seen as honorable.

    10. Anyone with a really useful invention, can forcefully prevent others from using or modifying it.

    I disagree with a couple of these, but I'll keep that to myself.

    This article screams "cynical pessimism" in my opinion.
