TROM Poems – Loneliness

By Seb The trade world we live in
can be a very lonely place. Cities seem to have isolated humans into
concrete buildings with very little space. Spaces where most don’t even
know their next door neighbours, As the cold world we live in
makes people fear strangers. So instead of going out and
connecting with others, Most stay inside and are glued to
screens with hypnotising colours. But even outside the bright colours
follow people wherever they go. Submerging human minds into small
and mega screens that glow. The economic game we play has taken us far away
from community and companionship. That’s partly because our system reinforces competitive
behaviour rather than unity and friendship. It’s no wonder why so many
of us feel so alone, As we have a self-centred culture that
pushes everybody into their own little zone. A zone where many are forced to numb themselves
with substances to deal with the pain. A pain caused by lost connections and
ultimately an obsolete trade game. A game that is based upon
conflict and division. Separating people into race,
nationality, sex and religion. A life of loneliness is nobody’s
fault or responsibility. Our capitalistic culture makes
it an epidemic inevitability. Today’s predatory structure fosters these
emotions of fear, paranoia and depression. We must realize that our socioeconomic system sadly does
not promote human understanding and connection. At the end of the day
humans are social animals. We need each other just as much
as our fellow mammals. We need to create a system that makes
people want to feel like they belong and can contribute to the
betterment of the world. And not one where people compete and
isolate themselves in an egocentric game of who’s going to take
over the world. In the words of
Jacque Fresco: “There is no way for you
to make it on your own. Either we think globally
or we perish individually.” In other words the increasing severity of
loneliness will remain another symptom of today’s trade based society until we create new structures that
incentivize humans to work collectively. To understand more about the cause

  1. it's not just economic competition that drives social sickness/disconnection but also the fact that everyone has to sell something or themselves for a living, even if they're not in competition, often having to submit to whatever hierarchy or socially useless activity (which often includes academia), often being stuck in stressful environments or relations and not having the economic option to leave. factors like these largely foster repression, anxiety, depression, addiction.. i wanted to tell you guys that addiction is a coping response but it seems u already know that..

    anyway i think that one of the best currently-viable steps for social health is a ubi, which andrew yang is proposing for the 2020 u.s elections it would reduce people's need to sell something or themselves for a living, giving people some much needed self-sufficiency, thus favoring social health.
