Outrage Fatigue

Some days, I get so tired of every little thing in this assinine world provoking a sense of outrage in me. I'm not oversensitive, there are just too many assholers and too much injustice for my mind to take it all in.

I can't care and act on every insult to humanity that is perpetrated by
* the Bush government and its neocon agenda,
* the Chinese Government,
* the various terrorist slimeballs,
* the right wing christofascists, dominionists, racists and homophobes,
* peak oil and energy dependent lemmings,
* the abuse and degredation of women by judeo-christian-islamic religions,
* the disregard and harm of the environment and employees by quarterly profit centered soulless corporations,
* predatory lenders and banks who torment people that already suffer from financial misfortune,
* etc, etc, etc....

I just can't feel anymore. Our world has descended into madness, a perfect storm of insanity, stupidity and utterly inhuman cruelty.

"Learn to swim" - Tool, AEnima

All I can do, all most of us can do, is my little bit in my corner of the world to make it better. Set an ethical example, write about what I can, put my money toward things made by people who care, be an example of caring in a world full of hate and abuse.

All I ask of those reading this is:
do not contribute to the outrage,
do not feed its causes.
Stand against the horde of scum,
even though they will run you over anyway.
The speed bumps might slow them down
enough to let the next guy make a change.

This is why I started reading Buddhist writing on the nature of suffering - so I could try to get handle on my own and the madness like this out in the world.
