Can People Stop Pretending?
I think watching movies saves us from boredom. I've been tuning to different channels since morning until I saw a movie and the title seemed to be very interesting so I decided to watch it. I'll share part of what happened in the movie with you all.
It's about a man. He owns a television program and all they deal in is to expose evil-doers. Evildoers like those involved in human trafficking, baby factory, kidnapping, sexual molestation, domestic violence, and all sorts of negative activities.
That's all about what the man does. He travels far away from his home to another place entirely to leak people's secrets. I think it's a good idea because we all need to be aware of things happening in the country like human trafficking and some more...
The man was highly respected and I'm sure you'd think that people like that are saints and they don't engage in those things. After watching a few scenes, they showed the man when he was amongst his business partners. He was into drug trafficking. It's so crazy because he is highly respected in the community and a lot of people would not know that he does such a thing.
This man traffic is hard drugs from one region to the other, from one country to the other and so on... He later got caught and was imprisoned for longer years.
Let's come back to real life. Do you know that some people are highly respected in society and if you observe them well, you will know that they deserve to be jailed? The craziest part of it is that the majority of these people are government officials.
Let me use my country, Nigeria, as an example. When police officials arrest thieves or people doing some illegal jobs, they will collect money from those people and still release them. It means that they are giving those people a go-ahead to continue the illegal jobs that they do.
As we all know the embezzlement of funds is not good but these same government officials will embezzle funds and continue to tell citizens not to do so. Then, the citizens will believe that they have good government not knowing that all they tell them is lies and pretense.
It's just like people who condemn prostitution. A lot of ladies are also into this illegal business but they will come out like saints and act like virgins. I've seen a lot of people who do that. And when they talk, you'll think they are telling the truth. Some can even swear with their lives that they will never be prostitutes but they are.
I was talking to a very close friend one day. We condemned using charms to have money very fast because it's one of the fastest ways people make money in Nigeria but the repercussion is not good. A lot of people die, some people run mad and some other things... Would you believe that my friend also used charm to have more money? He has been using it since and I didn't know. And it's this same guy who condemned people who do such. It's crazy😅
Nigerian youths can be very crazy. The majority of them know the repercussion of engaging in money rituals but they don't care. They are hungry for money at the moment.
I find it hard to believe people these days. The saddest thing is that some people are telling the truth but because we have a lot of bad people who tell lies these days, we wouldn't know who's telling the truth and who's lying.
Why do people pretend?
I just love the fact that these sets of people know that those things they do are bad habits and that's why they can't come out to say what they do. That's why they are not proud of what they do.
Since they all know that the things they engage in, are bad. Why can't they just put a stop to it?
