Don't Laugh, God Complex

I started Don't Laugh, People years ago, before I ever moved to a blogging platform. It was on forums, but I did not call it "Don't Laugh, People" at the time; it was know simply as "Why You're Bitches." The idea then was to chastise the way of thinking that was crippling society and humanity, sports and news, schools and careers. The themes have followed. In a sense, looking at my blog posts... it's just me bitching about why others are bitches.

I thought upon a time that was a fair way to grab attention. Do unto others so they can see how cheap and petty their way of life/everything really is. I suppose it works in many circumstances, but much the same as a great hero has to learn not to kill to avoid becoming the villain, I too have realized I need a different approach. I could not figure out how, nor could I devote the time and capacity to research it.

I used to think "the truth" was enough. But "being neutral" is difficult when you're "spewing truth." One man's "truth" is another man's "bullshit" and that will always be *fact (*not truth). "Being neutral" has become "being subjective" in the minds of today's world--the ones who care. The apathetic just brush it all off. But I can not become apathetic. Not when there are viewpoints like the ones expressed on Don't Laugh, People by Allan Graye. Not when there are social injustices against all peoples every single moment of our existence. Even the privileged are treated like pariah by those who are *fortunate (*apathetic) enough to live life without concern.

I have not truly written for Don't Laugh, People for a while. I have drafts I start both on the platform and in Word documents. I save and close them, promising myself to finish them tomorrow. But tomorrow becomes 27 days ago in the blink of an eye. It is not an issue with will, desire, wanting, needing, or responsibility--I want to write. Even when I rant away on Twitter and get it all out of my system, I still want to bring it here for permanence. But I want Don't Laugh, People to transcend my shitty subjective neutrality of "the truth" and represent something more concrete, more fluid, more undeniable. It's my God Complex; grandiose delusions--I want Don't Laugh, People to be God. Not God the infinitely religious contemporary. Not God the warmonger. Just God, one-with-all *creation (*creativity).

I want to write. I want to entertain. I want to inspire. Educate. Motivate. Engage. Inform. Change. My writing is not unique. I am not the best writer on Don't Laugh, People, in my family, among my friends, on Blogger, on Tumblr, on Twitter, on WordPress. The only way I see myself being unique is that I have a direction I don't think others have. I do not have an endgame. I have a means to an end leading to a new beginning. I don't have an outline, I have a one-day-at-a-time (or 27 yesterdays) journey. My desire to change society is not to mold it into a vision of my own, but rather of our collective ideas.

I believe we can all coexist. Not the shitty religious symbolic bumper sticker type of coexist. The type of coexisting that only happens when humanity realizes our differences are our similarities. Our weaknesses are our strengths. As cliche as it all sounds, it's fact. Not truth. Truth is that a weakness can never be a strength. Fact is that a weakness can be manipulated into a strength.

So I ask that you forgive my inactivity. Forgive my upcoming inactivity. I will not promise activity again. But I will promise that there are goals here on Don't Laugh, People and those goals are to share more and more. More creativity. More *God (*no religion).
