Why Politics Spoiled Festivals and How We Can Get Them Back

Look, we all know that politics is ruining the fabric of society. It’s no joke. From clothing to our beloved festivals, these political discussions have made everything worse.

It has created an us vs them situation in almost everything we like to enjoy. And it’s about time we removed these discussions from our festivals so we can have fun. We cannot be talking politics 24/7, people need time to let loose.

And sometimes, that even means that we like to do stupid things from time to time. Because why not. If it’s fun, we like to do it. That’s how great stories are made. But if someone is standing in the corner and recording those stupid moments and posting them on facebook, criticizing how it offends him, that’s not a good thing.

In fact, that ruins the whole thing. This is the reason why we need to stop letting our smartphones control our lives. It’s just too much stimulation to our brains. We need time to form our own opinions, verify the truth (epistemology) and decide what kind of life we want to live.

The media is doing the thinking for us these days. And that’s the reason why almost everyone is either fighting with each other, or getting offended.

Anyhow, I’ll leave you with this video of Ragnar Lothbrok from the TV show Vikings. It shows how he took the path less travelled that made him the most famous made on the planet.
