There are many diseases which desperately need a cure like Malignancies Cancers and HIV/AIDS and other hazardous ones. We see many saddening stories of very unfortunate demise of people young and old. There are many others like Cardiovascular, Infectious and parasitic diseases which have a higher morality rate than the ones mentioned before.
But if I were a mad scientist and could create a cure for any disease, which disease would I cure? Stupidity. Yes you read that right, human stupidity.
Why? Need I even explain? Just look at the world around us. The complete picture. The good part is shouting at you for attention because it is amidst all the garbage in the world. Like few diamonds scattered in the sewer (alright that might be a bit too much, but you get the picture)
And just one beautiful word for all the illogical, irrational, fanatic, ridiculous mindset and whatever word you can bring out from the English language all in one word- (Human) Stupidity. This is the worst among all the diseases prevalent in our existence, not just a high no. of deaths, but I fear for the extinction of our ‘human’ species itself because of it.
Heck a simple common example, people ‘feel sad’ for poor people and children, millions of whom are dying because of poverty and hungry but find a gay couple kissing very disgusting. At such instances, I think to myself, are you out of your fucking mind? As long as people are not causing you trouble, leave them alone why do you care? (In this case, as said by many, homosexuality is not a disease or something ‘wrong’ at all, the only problem/disease here is you, your mind and your kind if you think that way, which i already covered above)
Referring to the recent rape cases and havoc in the country (India), people first don’t approach to help themselves, then we have all these ‘peaceful protests’ and candle marches being outraged at what happened. With all respect I admire that people are fed up and want a change, and better than me perhaps doing something on field instead of me who is sitting at home writing this, shooting emails and tweets to news channels and sorts.
But I just can’t help but laugh at all of them for the simple reason- Will you accept these victims as normal people? Stop ‘victimizing’ them than they already are? Stop bloody sympathizing for them and just consider it a bad event in their life and help them cope up as a normal person? No. “arre ladki ki izzat lut gayi, bichari pura zindagi baar rahega uske maan mey” (Oh the girl has been demeaned, this will remain for the rest of her life!”) A girl doesn’t lose prestige when she is sexually attacked, she is a victim. Fucking idiots!
This fucking attitude and hopeless mindset of people first needs to change. It’s all good to talk about change, but acting them out is what very few people are capable of apparently. Once we change ourselves, then we can deal with screwing the corrupt and good for nothing police, politicians and government. And this is not just limited to the recent happenings here.
Stupidity. One word. Can be the end of humanity. Quite literally (and I’m very serious when I say ‘literally’)
