A Note on Weltschmerz.
Weltschmerz: a feeling of melancholy and world-weariness.
Weltschmerz expresses the feeling of sadness and melancholy for all the evil and wrong in the world – and honestly, I am feeling this a lot. Ever since one of my friends properly introduced me to the term, I cannot stop thinking about it.
It is not like I have not cared about the world and its people before; I have always cared. But there are so many more issues out there than a single person can be aware of. We have all heard about the BLM or the #metoo movement – important movements with a lot of (positive and negative) media coverage in Western mainstream media.
However, while these issues absolutely should not be disregarded, there are so many more issues out there that never make it to mainstream media.
So, while, as I said, no one can keep up with all the important stuff happening in the world, I want to at least give you an overview of some of the topics that have been brought to my attention.
I want to use this platform to raise awareness, share petitions, and share woke social media accounts with you.
