Years back Luke Bryan released a song called “why most people are good” that song is absolutely bogus and this article will explain why.
“I believe kids oughta stay kids as long as they can
Turn off the screen, go climb a tree, get dirt on their hands”
If kids should just be kids then why should they climb trees and get dirt on their hands of all things? Perhaps they want to watch YouTube videos and play XBOX all day? shouldn’t they get to decide how they as kids play not Luke Bryan? I’m sure there was a parent at one time somewhere saying kids should stay kids as long as they can by working in a factory and getting rust on his hands because that’s what he did growing up.
“I believe we gotta forgive and make amends
Cause nobody gets a second chance to make new old friends”
Yeah I absolutely agree with this one. There was this guy named Adolf Hitler who a lot of people were really upset at, but little did they know all they had to do was to forgive him and they could have a new friend, perhaps take a fun ride on his train and join him for a fun vacation at camp.
Also sarcasm aside what’s with the grammar on this one? He needs a second chance to make new old words.
“I believe in working hard for what you’ve got
Even if it don’t add up to a hell of a lot”
I could point out that working smart beats working hard every time, or the hypocrisy of this multi millionaire talking about “hard work” when most of his success comes from other people, but the dumbest part of this lyric is that it can be applied to almost anything, including free labor, yes you in the audience will get luke Bryan’s support if you are a deadbeat who decides to work for just your room, board and food for fifty years when a job paying $1,000,000 an hour is right down the street, all because you worked for every penny of the first
“I believe most people are good
And most Mama’s oughta qualify for sainthood”
Most people are not good, Most people are assholes. If somebody is dying on the side of the street and there’s a crowd of people around the person, due to our great social psychology the crowd would rather let the person die because someone else will handle it than actually save the person.
“I Believe most Friday nights look better under neon or stadium lights”
What is he talking about a strip club?
“I believe this world ain’t half as bad as it looks
I believe most people are good”
By percentage crime is lower than it’s ever been, there are less wars, starvation and disease than ever. However there are more people – were nearing 8 billion on this wet rock we live on – And this equates to a higher total number of assholes. Most of our societal and global problems are caused by all of these assholes, whether it be various cancers, drunk driving, or the inevitable mass migrations and deaths caused by global warming, and nearly all of them are inevitable because people aren’t good, they’re dumb.
“I believe them streets of gold are worth the work
But I’d still wanna go even if they were paved in dirt”
Isn’t this from the same guy that talks about booze, and fucking a bunch of women? I’m sure he’s next in line for sainthood.
“I believe that youth is spent well on the young
‘Cause wisdom in your teens would be a lot less fun”
I remember reading a story about a couple of teen boys who murdered their neighbors. Fuck all that wisdom nonsense, boys will be boys amiritght?
“I believe if you just go by the nightly news
Your faith in all mankind would be the first thing you lose”
Nightly news sucks, news in General is a dumb and dying artform. I get my news from the onion, it’s probably equally valuable but much less likely to stress me out
