It is immeasurably easy to ignore your problems with entertaining television shows and movies. Once the weed gets in there though, you're screwed.

I find myself so 'enlightened' on pot that it is sickening. I point out things about myself that I have completely ignored for ages. The introspection is magnified x1,000,000. On one hand, I hate pot because I can no longer refuse to participate in my existence. On the other... blissful ignorance isn't always the best.

I think we're lost because we see all the pain in the world now through a glass lens. We have to see the Kurds and Syrians getting decimated. We have to see the Uighur Muslims go through ethnic cleansing. We have to see the bloody protests in Hong Kong. We have to see famine in Yemen and destruction of the Amazon. We have to see children locked up in cages and people in places of worship shot in the masses due to racism. We have to see slavery and trafficking and abuse and addiction. We have and will lose many more rare species of animals around the world.
...And we can't do much about those things as individuals and our government does not find it's political or economical reasons supported by intervening.

We can also ignore all of these things after a second with another scroll and a 1-minute cat or dog clip online.

How are we supposed to exist in such a disgusting world?
