Modernity

What kind of world do we live in? Where sentiment is an emotion and a love letter is a text. When morals are subjective and change according to how one feels. Where likes and dislikes are black and white and we swipe right to find not a soulmate, but a one night stand. When sex becomes less taboo than kissing, and murdering a child in the womb is a woman’s choice. Where one fears to speak the truth or¬†stand up for justice and readily¬†embraces lies. When positive thought is exchanged for philosophy and exercise is the new Enlightenment. Where bloodshed and killing are only evil with select groups of people. When quiet is exchanged for music and booze and soul-searching is traded for soul-selling. Where the obscene is commonplace but anything sacred is ridiculed. When instant gratification is sought and relationships tossed away without further thought.

What world is this that we live in?
