Oughtism was a joke term used by some people in the anarchy group i am subscribed to, it implies people or persons who do what they "ought" to do, or are people or persons that tell other people what "ought" to do. i noticed that a lot of people view morality as a subjective thing, and so by making rules based on moral values, you are making rules based on bias, and not fact, and the only alleged facts people claim to hold is held within ancient writings by other humans who have been dead for hundreds or even thousands of years, so their ideals and morals couldn't possibly 100% represent how life is right now, nor could they be right imposing their own bias of wrong and right.
this lyric here is supposed to be semi-sarcastic, pointing out the extremes in society and religion, how many people live for the sake of a higher power, people living for the glory of an invisible being named God, people dumping their human responsibilities for the sake of belief, soldiers killing children and excusing themselves because "my superior officer told me to kill those children, i am innocent!", or people selling golden tickets to heaven for 100 dollars a piece (because some people will actually believe that will work? lol; true story btw).
i also get into the endless cycle of control and desire to control, we always feels like we want more, few people can be content just doing nothing or being at their same level of life for long periods of time, this is why ambitious people rise up, and they end up either governing our lives, or pay people with their wealth to govern us for them, and it gets so tempting that many of us find ourselves wanting to be in that seat, some with better intentions than others, but truth is, it's very hard to be perfect and one with yourself while you're playing with politics.
the very basis of war and politics is hypocrisy and deception, very few can make it out of either without being damaged in some way or another, whether physically, mentally, or even emotionally. but we accept all of the atrocities in life as normal, we are sheep, we are complacent, we follow the rules, and those who don't follow the rules, get punished by the Lords who own our souls, we are numbered, we are statistics.
someday i hope the cycle will be broken, but hoping does nothing by itself, and i admit to being too weak and jaded to push a revolution.
