Lately, I've been watching a lot of law related programs on TV. Watched almost all the episodes in a couple of weeks. It's a program called 그것이 알고싶다. Well, its not really 100% law related but it deals with real situations that happened in Korea where most didn't receive justice or had to go through a lot of trouble to get it.
What I've notice is the faults in the Korean law. Now, there are still a lot that needs to be changed and made. The law needs to protect the weak, but I've seen a lot shit happen to innocent people. That made me overly mad. I don't know why but I just got really emotional. Maybe its normal to feel this way.
The thing that gets me the most was when the so called "rich and powerful" do something that goes against the law, the don't get the equal punishment they deserve. WHY? MONEY. POWER is everything. I'm so sick of rich/powerful people using their money and power to get whatever they want. Well, I would think everyone thinks this way. But what I don't get are the people who receive that DIRTY money. WHY HAS THE WORLD TURNED INTO SLAVES OF MONEY? Its just a piece of paper. You obviously don't need money to be happy, everyone knows that yet can't seem to get that in their head. Its mind boggling because its not a very hard concept.
That show I've been watching has given me both the good and the bad. The good was that it made me realize how I should live my life. Whatever I may be in the future, I must not become a slave to money and power. Never. Yes, you may need a certain amount of it to survive but don't sell yourself for it. Hard work will get you the same money, ya it might take more time and effort but isn't that what makes it an achievement? Don't you wanna be proud of what you've become in the future? Put your head up high and tell yourself you've just made the world a better place by living by the rules?
The bad, has to be that it has given me a negative aspect of the world itself. Definitely the world has its beautiful side but the dark side to me has been growing bigger while the bright side has been shrinking. Its something I wish to change. I'm a nobody right now. I've probably been wasting my life on useless crap and regret not doing something, anything to make the world just a tiny little better. So lately I've been thinking on what I can do. I've come to a conclusion. I need to grow. I need to become a better person. I need to keep learning. I need to keep reading. Studying. Questioning.
I need to have that "power".
Because only with that "power" I so hate, could I make a change in this world.
No one will listen to me. I have no power. What have I done so far? Nothing.
It's only when I become top of my game when people listen. I need to get there.
I know, it sounds so grand with words like the "world" "change" but I don't expect to get the nobel prize. What I mean here is that I just want to be somebody people will listen to and maybe show what I do as a somebody. Not becoming a slave to power. Just a simple say on current social situations. Fight for whats right. This may not be a big change but someone out there will have the courage to move forward because of that one say of someone with power.
Imagine a top actress saying her opinion on a current situation where she may fight for whats right rather than saying nothing. That alone can bring in people to be interested in a situation they never knew about. The media will cover the story. Its as simple as that.
I would like to end this with saying,
Never sell yourself for money and power. It definitely won't make you happy.
Fight for whats right. Grow. Become someone. Then people will listen.
