Welcome to the Machine

August 4, 2009

I’ve been closely following the news and reading a lot of stuff for some time now as to whats been happening around the world and incidents/facts relating to them. Big thanks to google and wikipedia. I personally think that these two sites are certainly a big revolution in this information age. Talking about information age, I think people dont really criticise enough and question the information presented to them. Especially the media including newspapers and news channels incl BBC, CNN and all the other major players. On analysing these mediums of information in this new age you will be absolutely dumbstruck when you get to know how biased, manipulated and subterfuged is the information they provide. I blame all the literate, white-collared i-am-happy-the-way-i-am young minds of the world. They just don’t realise that right from the way they are brought up to the way the complete their education to getting a job and supporting their family, its never the way you want it to be, its how a group of people who decide things that happen in and around us want you to be. In fact those who think that they are having a dream job or they are living a dream, i pity you. I would like to quote Pink Floyd here,

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
Where have you been?
It’s alright we know where you’ve been.
You’ve been in the pipeline, filling in time,
Provided with toys and ‘Scouting for Boys’.
You bought a guitar to punish your ma,
And you didn’t like school, and you
know you’re nobody’s fool,
So welcome to the machine.

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
What did you dream?
It’s alright we told you what to dream.
You dreamed of a big star,
He played a mean guitar,
He always ate in the Steak Bar.
He loved to drive in his Jaguar.
So welcome to the Machine.

That is just the way everyone including me is living. Its all about the machine. We need to break this machine. Break it in such a way that even the footprints are not left out. Its not that easy that everything’s become a lost cause these days. Media plays a big part in holding this machine together. Money is another good-for-nothing commodity that has become such a big part of our lives that everything we do, every feeling we have at the end of the day is determined by one big thing.. MONEY… How has money become more important that a person’s life? Well it has been made that important. Without money can you imagine speding even a day of your life. We need to break these shackles. Its high time now. Well for the fact, the machine cannot hold itself for long. We are already seeing those signals.. The economic recession bull crap.. It ought to happen and unless this machine is brought down it will again happen, the cycle will never end. Wake up young minds, start questioning this illusion of reality, stop the corporations, the rich elitist mfs of the world, stop them from gettin richer by killing hundreds and thousands of people. The realization here in itself is such a big threat to this Machine. The lines

What did you dream?
It’s alright we told you what to dream.

is what it is and will be unless there’s a big revolution. Stop being dumb, there’s more to life that just crap movies (Kollywood/Bollywood in particular) and sports (Cricket/Golf in particular). Stop the Machine. Lets create a new age revolution. Stop the capitalists. Stop the racists. Stop the religious heads. Enough is enough, Just can’t take anymore bullshit. Lets make sure that atleast the next generation live a better life.
