On a cold December morning in Florida. You may be wandering why somebody wrote morning notes? Well, if we can have morning newspaper then why it feels so heavy to read some thought provoking morning notes.
On Falling in Love Under Capitalism
We all want to fall in love thanks to our Hollywood, Netflix, Hulu, Tubi, YouTube and all other extravagant capitalist fantasies. But have you ever tried it or experienced it? what is this chemical reaction? What vulgarity and boldness? What extraordinary dichotomy? What catastrophe for a working class socially and Morally conscious handsome young men like me? Why should I not write my morning notes with the same intensity, alertness and importance of some breaking news perhaps a warning for another hurricane in Florida, or better maybe another Pandemic devouring the world with million broken young handsome men like me and I must say again because I must not keep it a secret anymore I am a really handsome young man.
Now I am not going tell anyone how amazing my love story was or how childish my emotions are in place of maturity and carrier oriented regimes of our modern madness. What then now? Is this man trying to write another Great Gatsby? “No” I am going take revenge on capitalism. I am more than happy to attack capitalism than fate or regrets. “I do rather became a communist and overthrow the capitalism society rather than falling in love under capitalism.”
What happen? But why? Capitalism is so cool, we get to do some much, and have so much fun under the spell of consumerism and thinking every remorse in our life will be surpassed by buying things after things or keeping a career oriented entrepreneurial mindset. Is there some fun on being at the side of the exploiters? Is it ethically right to undermine those who are less privileged than you just because you happen to be by chance or fate thrown on a cozy chair in place of not having even a chair to sit? Look down to the streets where we all walk on equal footing from all spheres of life.
What do you see? not something pleasant, heartwarming scene and even if you go to beach then later find out a Tsunami is coming that shock, exhilaration, or derangement of senses wouldn’t be as much clear as it would be if we witness the sloths, inhumanity, hate and poverty on streets where we walk everyday but never learn a thing except what to buy or where to take a photo to post on Instagram? thanks to our extravagant Capitalism.
What do women want? Only God knows. What do these women are looking for? What is wrong with them? I know what demon have taken possession of them. Are they also not haunted by the spell of capitalism? An ideology of spending where more a man can spend more a man deserves to be loved or admired? From whence these double standards come from? Is it another whisper of Satan to our sentimental modern Eves? Poor Adam has fallen again on earth.
Oh! Do you have a car? A house on your name? Are you still going to school? so you do have a job? you look nice but the problem is I have my own condo and you don’t? It doesn’t even matter but why don’t you believe in God? why do you hate capitalism so much? Why but why? Where and How? What? Really? Are you a weirdo? Oh you don’t like to wear Jordan’s? Have you been to Miami beach? oh Do you drink sometimes? Ah! looks like you also smoke Marijuana right? Well! what goals you have? What future will you have? Do you have any kids? Do you even want to have kids? what is your idea of paradise? what about a trip to Caribbean or Bahamas?
Oh my Lady! Such questions cannot be answered but hammered. “No” My love and My sweetheart it is not you I do understand. It is the capitalist utopia. You see, these questions cannot make a morally conscious man to fall in love with you O pretty women. But are you not a socialist or Marxist? “No” You don’t have to be a Marxist to criticize capitalism. All you have to do is my darlings to make men just fell in love under capitalism and he will became a critique of capitalist society if not a socialist.
I am not calling for a socialist revolution for I have also heard that It is no fun falling in love under Socialism either? They say women under socialism are somewhat delirious too. Oh! Fate of men? Where do we go? what other “Ism” men must look for? I read in the newspapers this morning that Feminism is also haunting America and other parts of the world? Perhaps this is the end of times and God should send Jesus back on earth to rescue men and save their romantic souls from falling in love even in heaven leave this wretched planet with their old and new “Isms” alone.
