Zuma’s Zealous Zoo (Zuma's followers put in a paltry display of unthinking vitriole)
I’m tired of it. Doesn’t the frenetic fever of political rhetoric and activity tire you too? It seems a truism that the more we have a guilty conscience, the more we seem to fly into a hullabaloo, as if our very busyness would cover the inner guilt.
Hmmm … I wonder if that’s why we’re all so busy … trying to prove to each other that there’s value to our existence as we sit in judgment, measuring our worldly successes and failings with a jaundiced eye.
But sadly, I think that when it comes to God, our conscience is so numbed that this truism no longer applies. We no longer throw ourselves into good works to try and prove to God we’re worth saving (as if we ever could!). And, worthless as such actions may be, the miserable reality is that we don’t even feel the need! And although the correct response is to fall in abject confession, there’s neither any compulsion to repent. It’s called apathy (an absence or suppression of passion, emotion, or excitement, pronounced \’a-pə-thē\).
I know I’ve railed against this before! Believe me; I’m not trying to guilt anyone into doing “the right thing”. That never works, and anyway nowadays people just laugh it off and say “I’ll make my own salvation, thank you very much”. Even if I could guilt people into action, the end result would be misery and condemnation. How much, I wonder, will the protesters grandstanding outside the Pietermaritzburg courts ever realize their own complicity in souls sliding into darkness – a living apathy about the things eternal, replaced by a passion and emotion for the things temporal
Apathy is the new religion
Apathy is my generation
Apathy is all we ever knew
Apathy is good enough for you
A strong opinion is much over stated
My blank stare is much underrated
We don’t vote 'cause We don’t care
We don’t ever go anywhere
We don’t care that you would convert us
We don’t care why that you hate this
Apathy will never free you
And never promise to set you free
