I think most of our world is fake. All of the fake religions / gods that have been created are just a way for one group of people to control another. Religion brought with it this fake idea of monogamy / celibacy. We Idolize sports figures and fake boob celebrates. Expensive cars exist so we can pretend we are better than others.
I can recall an example where someone I knew was doing some yard work. In the corner of their property there were some decretive bushes. It had been a couple of years and there were some weeds and the bark mulch had turned from black to brown. I thought it looked fine, not that I really have an opinion on such things.
She spent an entire weekend tearing those bushes out and planting grass. She spent hundreds of dollars at home depot buying grass seed, fertilizers, pesticides, and tools remove the bush roots. She spent many hours performing hard manual labor under the sun. She was so proud of everything she had done. I remember sarcastically "great you changed the color of the lawn from brown to green". It was a tremendous waste of time, effort and money. Most importantly it was so meaningless. Who cares what color the lawn is?
As an MDer I spent that weekend with my feet up staring off into space and playing some minecraft. When my son showed her what we build in minecraft that weekend she made fun of us saying that while she was working hard and being productive we were wasting our time and being lazy.
I recognize that minecraft is a waste of time but I did not spend hundreds of dollars and poison the ground. I'm not covered in little scratches from branches scraping me and mosquito bites. While people can do really important things by and large they don't. Putting in extra hours to buy that sports car? (meaningless). Stressing out over that salesman of the week plaque? (meaningless) What color should I paint my house? (meaningless). coke or pepsi? burger king or McDonalds it all seems so fake and meaningless.
Am I wrong in that if more people had MD the world would be a better place?
