Am I the only one getting the shit kicked out the them by society?

0

I’ve been stuck in this world for 17 years now and already want out. No one asked me if i wanted to be a part of society, yet they start assimilating me before i even fully understand what they’re tying to do. School is for “preparing you for the real world.” The real world is no more, they completely destroyed that with governments and rules that we all follow. We aren’t even human any more, we are just entities of society. Humans have %100 free will, do anything. But with society we’re put into a box and just given an illusion of freewill. So within the first 18 years of your life in society its make or break, those years determine if you’re gonna be homeless, struggling to make ends meet for the rest of your life, or you manage, barely, but are those really the best years for a make and break of life, when you’re most immature and stupid. That explains why so many people aren’t succeeding in this “real world”. Humans come pre-made with the tools to survive, we don’t need +12 years of remodeling the human to fit in society. I’m a square trying to be rammed through a circular hole, it doesn’t work like that. So if i’m not the only one, why isn’t this shit fixed?

That's called life. We have to get ready to live- we don't have much time here...

"The real world is no more, they completely destroyed that with governments and rules that we all follow."

We are the government, we're the politicians. It's human error. No one will ever be completely happy with the way things are run, even if the ideal person were to be in power. You've got the passion in you to be a good leader- do you have the control, the drive?

"Humans come pre-made with the tools to survive, we don’t need +12 years of remodeling the human to fit in society."

On the contrary. In school we learn to think abstractly, we learn social skills. We learn how to respect other people, to create our own work and explore the depths of our intelligence.

All of the things you mentioned, we all go through them. I'm not quite sure what you want out of life, but it sounds like you are frustrated by stress in your life that is weighing on you.

We're not robots- but no doubt we are easily influenced. The fabric of society is not perfect because perfection is relative. A lot of people see these things and still live happy lives. Because though school is tough, it can better you as a person. Your brain is developing in ways that school supports the growth of, and so you will be able to think and reason abstractly as an adult. Though there are rules, some of them keep things from spiraling into chaos. Life cannot be a free for all, and rules are not always against you.

have you read "The Mysterious Stranger" by mark twain? it's a great book, quick read, very in depth and dark. it touches upon subjects such as society and I recommend it"and yes, I'm sorry you feel this way. it sucks but there are some rules to follow, and some we do not, but often DONT because we're afraid of what others may think. it's hard not caring what other people think, but even the little things such as dressing however you want, doing your hair however you want, etc., can be a small accomplishment in itself.

If humans don't need to be a part of a society, then why does it exist? Humans evolved to develop societies for survival. Early humans wouldn't have lasted long all alone so they got together in groups. Eventually those groups became more organized, then they needed rules to control everyone.
I think what you're frustrated with, is the fact that they place so much pressure on students to succeed before they know what they want to do with their lives, its a bit like blind ambition. But you're right a lot of your success can be determined by how well you do in high school. However, things aren't always that black and white. Steve Jobs, never went to high school. Bill Gates, never went to high school. Two of the richest men in history didn't fit into societies model. But we can't all be so lucky, so it would be prudent to just trust the system and do your best, that way you'll have as many opportunities as you possibly can to pursue whatever you want in the future.
IF you truly don't want to participate in society, that can be done too. Just move off the grid and live in a cabin somewhere. Learn to survive off of the land and exist without the "help" of society. I'm sure there's plenty of places and communities that live with this type of philosophy. But do you really want to slaughter your own meat, get up at the crack of dawn to tend to your garden, live without all the "spoils" of normal society's every day life? Maybe I'm misinterpreting what you mean by society, but society has been around for thousands of years, its not a problem with society, its a problem with how you find your place and adjust to the system. It might not be fair, but if you were an early human, it wouldn't be fair if you got stomped by a wooly mammoth either. Life isn't ever going to be fair, or easy, people get lucky, people get screwed over, some people get things they don't deserve and some people never get what they deserve. All you can do is try to find a way to cope. It sucks, but that's the best we can do.
