🧵22 THINGS I’VE LEARNT ABOUT HUMANITY IN THE PAST 2 YEARS🦠💥

1. Most people would rather accept a lie as truth, than admit they were wrong. Many of those same people would forgo freedoms & accept punishments just to save face, and prolong the canopy of deceit.

2. Millions of people struggle to comprehend the power and wealth mindset — and that just because an individual already has power and wealth, doesn’t mean they aren’t desperate for more of it. All lifestyles are relative, and naivety is a key component here.
3. Humans are generally complacent about the hard won ideas of freedom and liberty. Equally, most are blissfully unaware of the psychological techniques used to chip away at these important rights, while convincing you that you still have them.

Sentient moving castle that spends it time going to ruins and investigating what happened to the castle that used to be there.
Then exacting justice magical castle style. (?)

"Damn it Alexander how many times! Don't bring your dead things inside"
"Sowwy Mrs Castle"

I was looking for a place with no broken hearts,
I was looking for a place with no darkness,
I was looking for a place with no wreaked ships,
I was looking for a sign
It was about time, that I had to call it quits, because there was no time left and no unbroken heart left.
It was then I realised, the light didn't emerge from the unbroken.
It emerged from the creeks that the broken hearts had.
The light traced it's significance from where the dark prevailed.
I wasn't looking for no broken hearts, but a sign of hope.
I found light stays only when darkness prevails
