Are you serious? Seriousitis is what many people have and believe me it is serious, seriously. I have had it up to here with "serious people". I know there is a law against complaining about anything, but why respect laws, i never agreed to any of them. There needs to be only one law: arrest and incarcerate all "serious" people and let them be in the same cell and sentence them to death by boredom, a hard and painful way to go.
Are there any insignificant people among you? There must be someone who feels that way, not everyone can be signifcant. It is necessary to have both or what is the point of having these words, etc.
Yet its hard to find anyone who feels insignificant, it seems everyone feels special in some kind of way. I am sure however, that there are cultures where such comparisons have no signicance as everyone is granted certain status, that raises them above insignicant. But, imagine China with those zillions of people buzzing about. I believe that in this kind of culture it is possible for people to reach a stultifying degree of feeling insignificant, like baby chicks might feel, if they had the intelligence, as they are being swept along a conveyor belt, soon to be crushed for dog food.
Certainly some people seem more significant than others, but where I live, everyone seems equally significant, i''m glad to report. There is a neighbor, an ecuadorian with only one eye, his other eye has no eye and is just empty. He walks about in a very humble, insignificant way as he seems to live alone with his dog.
Why would one wish to champion the insignificant, because perhaps, these are the poor, suffering people who hardly can get by, for whatever reason. And one's heart goes out to them, some of them may never had had a chance, who knows how people become whatever they are, perhaps they endured humiliation, or whatever, black people who seem to have the cards stacked against them with systemic prejudice, women, with centuries of injustices against them, and so many other groups that have been vilified and maltreated. If we only could know how each person has become who they are, I am sure that we would feel compassion easier. It could be a very important step to bring the human family together.
Who will champion the bugs and worms that we haphazardly kill? One can choose between killing ants in one's kitchen whenever you see one or letting them live. This being the case, I wouldn't be the one to be standing up for them. I leave that to you. Who will stand for the cockroach? The rat? Not me, though rats can be great pets.
Who stands for the insignificant, our lost brothers and sisters? I'm kind of busy/overwhelmed with things and have no time to give. I am hoping that some kind hero type will step in and do the deed, so to speak.
And finally what's the buzz on flies? Their brains must be exquisite, since they are able to fly better than most all flying creatures, yet they seem so annoying. Who would put their body between the swatter and the fly? There are seemingly so many unpopular things. Maybe you have felt unpopular some times in your life? We could bond under that banner, standing for unpopular things. These would be the heroes of today. To love the worst. It seems like the roadway to sainthood, to joy and jubilation.
