i am trying to avoid
socially and politically critical poems
but i just can not resist writing this one.
human race is able
to industrially manufacture anything
using factories and mass media.
we can manufacture any type of a person,
like an elite athlete or a murdering soldier,
but we are somehow running out of critical thinkers.
we could easily manufacture critical thinkers.
that knowledge exists for a century
and it is easier than manufacturing murdering soldiers.
but living on a planet full of critical thinkers
is to complex for us to imagine
so we are afraid of doing it.
but a planet full of stupid obedient people
appears safer and more comforting
no matter what kind of a mess they make.
