The Lie We Live

At this moment you could be anywhere
doing anything Instead you sit alone before a screen. So what’s stopping us from doing what we
want, being where we want to be. Each day we wake up in the same
room and follow the same path to live the same day as yesterday. Yet at one time each day was a new adventure. Along the way something changed.
Before our days were timeless now our days are scheduled. Is this what it means to be grown up? To be free? But are we really free? Food. Water. Land. The very elements we need to survive are owned by corporations. There’s no food for us on trees, no freshwater in streams No land to build a home. If you try and
take what the earth provides you’ll be locked away. So we obey their rules. We discover the world through a textbook. For years we sit and regurgitate what we’re told. Tested and graded like subjects in a lab. Raised not to make a difference in this world. Raised to be no different. Smart enough to do our job but not to question why we do it. So we work and work left with no time to live the life we work for. Until a day comes when we are too old to do our job It is here we’re left to die Our children take our place in the game. To us our path is unique but together we are nothing more than
fuel. The fuel that powers the elite The elite who hide behind the logos of corporations This is their world. And their most valuable resource is not in the ground It is us. We build their cities. We run their machines. We fight their wars. After all, money isn’t what drives them. It’s power. Money is simply the tool they use to control us. Worthless pieces of paper we depend on to feed us, move us, entertain us. They gave us money, and in return we gave them the world. Where there were trees that cleaned our air, are now factories that poison it. Where there was water to drink, is toxic waste that stinks. Where animals ran free are factory farms where they are born and slaughtered endlessly for our satisfaction. Over a billion people are starving despite us having enough food for everybody. Where does it all go? 70% of the grain we grow is fed to the animals you eat for dinner Why help the starving? You can’t profit off them. We are like a plague sweeping the earth. Tearing apart the very environment that allows us to live We see everything as something to be sold. As an object to be owned. But what happens when we have polluted the last river? Poisoned the last breath of air? Have no oil for the trucks that bring us our food? When will we realize money can’t be eaten, that is has no value? We aren’t destroying the planet. We’re destroying all life on it. Every year thousands of species go extinct. And time is running out before we’re next. If you live in America there’s a 41% chance you’ll get cancer. Heart disease will kill one out of three Americans. We take prescription drugs to deal with these problems. But medical care is the third leading cause of death behind cancer and heart disease. We’re told everything can be solved by throwing money at scientists so they can discover a pill to make our problems go away. But the drug companies and cancer societies rely on our suffering to make a profit. We think we’re running for a cure but really we’re running away from the cause. Our body is a product of what we consume. and the food we eat is designed purely for profit. We fill ourselves with toxic chemicals. The bodies of animals infested with drugs and diseases. But we don’t see this. The small group corporations that own the media don’t want us to Surrounding us with a fantasy we’re told is reality. It’s funny to think humans once thought the earth was the center of the universe but then again now we see ourselves as
the center of the planet. We point to our technology and say we’re the smartest. But do our computers, cars, and factories really illustrate how intelligent we are? Or do they show how lazy we’ve become. We put this civilized mask on. But when you strip that away, what are we? How quickly we forget only within the past 100 years did we allow women to vote. Allow blacks to live as equals. We act as if we’re all knowing beings yet there’s much we fail to see. We walk down the street ignoring the little things. The eyes who stare, the stories they share. Seeing everything as a background to “me”. Perhaps we fear we’re not alone. That we’re a part of a much bigger picture. But we fail to make the connection We’re okay killing pigs, cows, chickens, strangers from foreign lands. But not our neighbours. Not our dogs, our cats, those we have come to love and understand. We call other creatures stupid Yet we point to them to justify our actions. But does killing simply because we can, because we always have make it right? Or does it show how little we’ve learned. That we continue to act out of primal aggression, rather than thought and compassion. One day this sensation we call life will leave us. Our bodies will rot, our valuables recollected. Yesterday’s actions all the remain. Death constantly surrounds us. Still it seems so distant from our everyday reality. We live in a world on the verge of collapse. The wars of tomorrow will have no winners. For violence will never be the answer, it will destroy every possible solution. If we all look at our innermost desire, we will see our dreams are not so different. We share a common goal. Happiness. We tear the world apart looking for joy, without ever looking within ourselves. Many of the happiest people are those who own the least. But we we really so happy with our iPhones, our big houses, our fancy cars? We’ve become disconnected. Idolizing people we’ve never met. We witness the extraordinary on screens, but ordinary everywhere else. We wait for someone to bring change, without ever thinking of changing ourselves. Presidential elections might as well be a coin toss. It’s two sides of the same coin. We choose which face we want and the illusion of choice, of change is created. But the world remains the same. We fail to realize the politicians don’t serve us. They serve those who fund them into power. We need leaders, not politicians. But in this world of followers we have forgotten to lead ourselves. Stop waiting for change and be the change you want to see. We didn’t get to this point by sitting on our asses. The human race survived not because we are the fastest or the strongest but because we worked together. We have mastered the act of killing. Now let’s master the joy of living. This isn’t about saving the planet. The planet will be here whether we are or not. Earth has been around for billions of years. Each of us will be lucky to last eighty. We are a flash in time, but our impact is forever. I often wish I lived in an age before computers. When we didn’t have screens to distract us. But I realize there’s one reason why this is the only time I want to be alive because here today we have an opportunity we never had before. The internet gives us the power to share a message and unite millions around the world. While we still can we must use our screens to bring us closer together rather than farther apart. For better or worse our generation will
determine the future life on this planet We can either continue to serve this system of destruction until no memory of our existence remains. Or we can wake up. Realize we aren’t evolving upwards but rather falling down. We just have screens in our faces so we don’t see where we’re heading. This present moment is what every step, every breath and every death has led to. We are the faces of all who came before us And now it is our turn. You can choose to carve your own path, or follow the road countless others have already taken. Life is not a movie. The script isn’t already written. We are the writers. This is your story. Their story. Our story. Created by Spencer Cathcart

  1. The world is on the edge of destruction. So unfortunate when we all have a purpose and it’s supposed to be a free world. Help share information so the sheep wake up. Everything is inner….

  2. Enslavement has touched each and every race on this planet throughout time under different regimes and empires. Envy and Hatred has always been stirred up among the common man. To these elites it doesn't matter what culture or ideology humans rally under, it's all about bloodlines, doctrines and concepts they adapt to, rituals they execute, agendas they push toward, contracts they conclude, experiments they accomplish and consummate the pacts and ambitions they've made. George Carlin put it beautifully when he made that speech, 'They own everything', by conquering all four corners and laying down their decrees for the servitude. 'It's a big club and you and me ain't in it.' Until the human family wake up out of their slumbers they will be moved and steered in all directions on the chessboard until they conquer what they want most of all and that's the human heart and self awareness of every conscious man and woman no matter colour or creed.

  3. Le menzogne iniziano dai tanti termini sono metaforici o del tutto ingannevoli solo pochi ne pronunciamo per come significano

  4. We become a machines for those who rule us , they take us right we obey them and take us left we obey them without thinking and don t know why but obey

  5. If any of this is true it is sad.
    If the man they say is our president it is sad. If you didn't get out of your neighborhood it is sad. If disasters are going on like they say they are it is sad.
    This is media the things we are allowed to see may be very different from what is really going on in the world. On almost every channel there is some form of disinformation. Lies sprinkled within the truth. You have to sift through the information to determine fact from fiction.

  6. I’m 15 and I’m tired of repeating the same schedule every day Next March I’m running away I’m taking my 4 sheep and my Guineapigs and my chickens and all my pets with me I will grow my own food I will disappear I’m tired of school my heart is very depressed when I was little I was so happy because I had both of my parents now I haven’t spent time with them they work so much I barely see them my sister is 20 and she never talks to me I want to be free it’s my calling I will go

  7. 🖤❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤

  8. All the thumbs down people must b evil n in denial thumb downers wake up n stop following da very people trying to kill every1sheep ku kia’i mauna aloha aina!

  9. Money is everything for them right then let's stop their income. During the Hong Kong protests many companies have received huge amounts of losses so they may persuade the government so let's do the same but for a different reason stop all means of transportation any means other than emergency vehicles stop the companies employees from getting to office block the whole city from getting things inside or out if you want and do all means to destroy their income then they will feel the pain in the ass and respond and don't stop when you get their promise give them the biggest scar they should become so scared that they must not question also that is how you can make them respond in the best means possible if this doesn't work then there will be so much of social instability it's better to get out of it

  10. Control your thoughts or someone else will control them for you. What is the matrix? It is only thought control. The system is trying to take our freedom.

  11. It was the Best 5 minutes I spend that doesn't kill your brain cells slowly.Thank you.The best words,but actions is that really that paint a grim picture…

  12. I just saw your YOUTUBE's cote. I understand it is a copyright problem… It is such a paradox and at the same time so logical that your video is blocked on the consideration of property.
    Capitalism and so called Communism have to be both revisited to fin a right middle economical solution so we can protect creators right without blocking creation process. Otherwise we can't be free because we always belong for a part of something we learned or earned on someway that was taced before us.

    This censure looks like an abuse of right of property.
    Just as own humans, along the human trade of african was an abuse of right on something no one can own, which is life. A process of ever going creation that is harnessed and stoped by capitalism of right of property. Microsoft and Apple, Inc. are known for buying technology in the sole goal to prevent it to land on the marked. They are protecting their less usefull technology for profit.

    I will again spread your video, thank you Spencer Cathcart.

  13. What you maybe lacking is. Biblical understanding of what time mankind is in. And if you knew what shape the earth really is; you would gain that understanding!

  14. People are unwilling to see one horrid truth: Mankind is just fine.

    There is no "us", only the single superorganism which is man.

    …and we are kicking ass.

    We are the blob, consuming all in our path.

    Someday evolution may demand that we solve all our perceived flaws, and on that day we will begin our march to veritable sainthood.

    But today the single entity which is man is served quite well by it's inclinations.

    Unfortunate, true, and unchangeable with impassioned speech.

    The only thing that might work is the simple admonition " Practice compassion toward your neighbor."

    This is a call to action.

    Not toward the planet.

    Not toward mankind.

    It is a call to you, toward the person in front of you, to treat them well.

    Now that would change everything.

    We might even evolve.

    I am going outside now.

    I will meet people.

    I will treat them well.

    If I am lucky I'll be able to help some individual in some seemingly meaningless way.

    It adds up.

  15. The crazy thing is that this is never going to fucking change. We will never change no matter how many videos like this we see. It's impossible to change because we don't work toghether. Everyone is just going to forget this.

  16. This is the very reason why I think life is pointless. Everything is fabricated. Everything is just…not what we see everyday.

  17. What’s stopping me? Got married and had a kid, have to take care of him. Otherwise, yeah, I’d build a cabin in Alaska and spend my days fishing and gold panning. Oh well!

  18. I liked the original background music better 🙁
    Why did they have to take it down?
    That video also had more views….

  19. Life is not a movie because they try to end it by giving us chemical as food which is poison cos all the food we eat today are chemical not really food

  20. Chemical become our living both food " drink and technology the snacks you eat are chemical the drinks are chemical poison that causes sickness

  21. Youtube is reading my mind! I wws just thinking about this when I came back from school earlier. I was like 'damn this life is so boring, everyday I wake up, brush teeth, study, shower, go to school and repeat. Is this life really is?' And just like that this video is on my recommendation.

  22. 🖤❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤

  23. 🖤❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤❤🖤

  24. I have better things to do then watch this video. Why change the world knowing I’m not even gonna be alive by the time earth dies plus I’m better living the way I live then constantly getting stressed that the world is gonna end some day and getting depression and some day even sucide comes to me and I die before I’m suppose to

  25. In twenty years time the rebellion will start by the kids who have been brainwashed and robbed of their life from today and twenty years ago.

  26. Why are u telling us this when we all know no one will do fuck all about it
    We thi k about it for 3 mins the. We carry on how we went on before this video i don't get it

  27. I finally found a video that I can relate to fully because these things I talk about I feel alone because no one understands me

  28. What the rich are tapping into is our minds and how it works.
    We ourselves have created demons that destroy us by expressing our deep interest in things that we may not have needed all the time. E-commerce, free data, a gym at home, social networking, digitization of jobs, opting for digital transactions when we have the option of using cash, etc, etc. I could go on and on. But aren't these some of the reasons that our society, health and minds have changed for the worse? What the rich have done is they have perfected the art of making us lazy by playing with our minds and now they are making billions out of it.

  29. I'm crying because this is all fucked up we got a phone in our hand when we were small a computer a TV and meat and plastic all this toxic things have been put in our life's… I ride the train and all I see is people on their phone its scary we all are just glued to our phones the whole time I wish my parents never gave me a fucking phone when I was small…
