5 things that make me ANGRY and SAD about the world these days
Today I would like to talk about some things that make me angry, irritated, mad or even sad and disappointed about our world these days. I´ve been thinking about these things for a long time now and I need to get them out of my head so I decided to share them with you (I hope you don´t mind) and maybe hear your thoughts about the topics as well. 🙂
I personally haven't watched TV in years because I´m not interested in it anymore. I only watch videos on Youtube, Facebook or other platforms because I can choose what to watch and when to watch.
I´d also say that most of the time I´m sceptical about news and I tend to prove-check everything from various sources because I think nowadays it´s necessary with all the disinformations, scams and everything.
The problem with believing in everything that is said on tv or in the media can be seen mainly with older people or younger kids (they are too naive and easily manipulated).
These people are unable to form their own opinion by researching and viewing it from more sides. They think that everything said in the news must be truthful.
I see it every time when I´m talking with my boyfriend´s grandma.
They are saying that this politician is bad, so he must be bad - I won´t vote for him! They are saying that this shampoo will make your hair grow so it must be true - I will buy it for you! They are saying that communism is the best ideology - we need to be communists again! (JUST AN EXAMPLE!)
We are always trying to explain to her that it´s bad for her to believe every single thing but we are not successful and we often gave up in the end. Some people can´t be helped and that´s making me extremely angry!
I don´t know about you guys but basically everyone I asked about why they got the vaccine said something along these lines: "I don´t want to do the tests anymore; I want to party and get drunk with others; I want to go to restaurants."
Just a few people said that they got it because of their health issues and because they fear the virus.
People (mostly young people and teenagers) just want to have fun, get drunk every night and party without limit.
That is all they care about and that´s making me mad! because they got the vaccine, no one requires testing from them anymore (= they are invincible) and they can still spread the virus without even knowing.
(I´m not saying that people can´t have fun... of course they can... but they are not careful enough! they just want to mess around.)
We are still living in a world where testing on animals is normal practice.
I came across this video on Facebook named "FOR TESTING WITHOUT ANIMALS" and it made me cry even though I´ve only seen a few seconds and without (the horrifying) sounds.
In the video, you can see recordings of people and they are being recorded while watching animal testing videos. All people are crying and some can´t even watch till the end. The video was created to support a petition against animal testing. I signed it immediately and you should as well!
It´s not acceptable to hurt vulnerable creatures just for testing cosmetics and other stuff.
I did some research and there are already technologies able to create something like synthetic human skin (and even organs!) on which the testing can be done without hurting anyone! But no... hurting and killing poor animals (mainly monkeys, rabbits, small dogs...) is still the easiest option. Unbelievable.
I would stop using all products of the companies that do tests on animals, but it´s honestly hard because almost every company you can think of does it. You probably have a product like that on your shelf right now.
As you can say by the title - this goes in hand with the previous thing. I found about this recently.
Did you ever wonder how real pearls are made?
Yeah, you can find pearls from molluscs or oysters (the shell animals) when you go to the beach, but most pearls that are being sold by jewellery companies come from pearl farms where they are produced in massive quantities.
How are pearls created?
Pearls are created every time something (a piece of sand, microscopic parasite or anything else) gets into the shell.
The animal living inside the shell immediately starts to protect itself from the disruption and so the piece of sand is being covered in calcium carbonate in layers until the pearl you know is made.
By this whole procedure, the animal is just trying to protect itself from any harm.
And well... on the pearl farms, they are putting something into the shells by force - the animal creates the pearl for protection and then the process is repeated - again, again, again until they die.
Some people say that it´s okay, the oysters can´t even feel pain! Well, we think they don´t feel pain, but we can´t be sure! It´s still an unnatural invasion. Knowing this I will never look at the pearls the same way ever!
