I really do like people who act like they are driven by a strong feeling of what's wrong and what's right. I love people who take things seriously and appreciate honorable behaviour. I like things that are forever true. I despise ironic behaviour, cynicisms and immoral deeds. I do, however, understand that morals are a complex matter, that can't be reduced to simple do's and dont's. Yeah yeah... But anyway, I love when people who are highly educated and informed act not ignorantly, but morally. Moralists get slagged off too easily these days. Their time is over. You get nowhere by preaching morals. I think it has something to do with this allegedly post-modern society, the fall of the wall, the end of the big stories. Everything is relative, neither right nor wrong. Yeah yeah... I just can't agree. I'd like people to stand up for things, preach and act like everything really meant something (dare I say 'again'?). There are so many things on the list and no time wasting on shameless frills. The priviledged youth of the West walks about in their special type of pale misery, complaining, blaming and then looking for relief. Constantly swinging between highs and lows. The undernourished youth of the East and the South walks about in their very ordinary misery.
And just for your own goddamn health, at least.
I don't blame Mathias F. for winding me up like this. But his weblog entry “Fenomenspotting: Tokindie“ made me feel absolutely awful, so I just had to speak my mind and heart. I realise it was written in a kind of ironic and funny way. It didn't say anything about morals and anything either. But nevertheless, there was something about it that made me feel out of touch and completely alone.
