Alternative Planet Earth
You can’t tear down the social fabric and pretend as if that’s normal.
The word alternative was once reserved for what’s unorthodox, but today, it seems to be the other way around.
To think for your self has become a rebellious act.
The truth is no longer enough, now we need to burn it all down and create our own truths, new truths.
Sensibility IS the new alternative.
Freedom is no longer about being Free
Love is increasingly expressed as hate
And education is not about learning how to think, but what to think.
We’ve replaced thinking with feeling
Families with careers
Health with a pill
And what we need with what we want.
In short, the world has been turned upside down.
It’s the great inversion and we’re too distracted to realise.
It’s when you go against The Way that things begin falling apart
First it’s a corruption of the spirit
Leading to a decay in the moral character of the individual
To inevitably be swept away with the social current of the times.
Tearing down the old and replacing it with the new
Not realising that new doesn’t necessarily mean better
What we need is to recapture the oldest of normal, not shift to new one in the name of public safety
A new normal where instead of loving thy neighbour, we’re being asked to snitch on them.
The thing is, when you leave a spiritual vacuum, the void will inevitably be filled by something else.
So welcome to Alternative Planet Earth
Where light has been accepted as darkness and darkness has been accepted as light.
