Our society today has but barely evolved from the previous times. Brainwashed still, and blinded by government. You look at the victorian era etc during that time, when the rich treated the poor as rags. You ask the students if that was right. And everyone is like WTF? You teach them about the Hitler era and on how others treated them and what it was like during that time. And everyone was like WTF.
But once they leave class, they stop thinking now. I see it everyday. People KNOW about this, people can identify bias, but once they leave class. Boom, they forget it.
Society of today BLAMES the poor, it DOESN'T HELP people who are DIFFERENT. You WILL conform, through schooling, OR through MEDICINE. People always say WTF when they see how others were treated back then, but they constantly do it. The poor are treated as a disease, aren't helped, and people will consistently BLAME them even though it is the system they are using and abusing to get rich, prosper, and to create an even bigger divide.
Communism, socialism is seen as something to kill and destroy here in America. And very much so here. Yet, I find, at the basis of socialism, it promotes an ideal that is something that we as humans take to be an absolute truth. I am not saying that everyone is a socialist at heart. I am rather saying that systems, and doctrines of many different systems in history all point towards the human will, psyche, and what we truly believe in. And a peice of each of them, all add together to get to what we are.
I hear comments like "China isn't truly Communist". That doesn't mean anything. It's just a basis of government one can change day in and day out. It is rather a government saying that it is the standard that they will in a way, believe in.
We BLAME those that are the foundation of our society without truly realizing how WRONG our perception is. We here on HF are of the priveleged masses. We are university students, studying in degrees, and on a forum for accessories that costs an amount people in other countries can never dream of. Our perception of the world and society is thus of one in where we are and do things. But this is so wrong. THE true foundation of our modern society is of our masses. The poor, the privlegdeg few who toil away, make our food, and hope for a better future. But rather than helping them. We spit at them, we BLAME them for our problems...all while laughing the way to the bank.
Black Bullet isn't doing anything completely new, but it has a VERY large focus on the cursed children which draws parallels with society of today. And how we place blame into things we don't understand, and things that are our foundation, and yet are things that we scoff at.
The human race and kind, despite thousands of years past barbarism. Has yet to change.
