I'm afraid of the world..

greedy corporations and arrogant leaders are bullies to most countries,I wish the american people would stop going along with the bullying corrupt and evil leaders and corporations,and let the CEO and politician face the consequences of their actions and decisions,personally.In other words the world hates us,and I hope these other countries are more with it than many americans are,and can separate the citizen from the monsters at the reigns of power,crime and profit in this country.

Yes in so many ways citizens are little Eichmann's,but at some point you have to get over it and stop going along, it has gotten so bad,so hard to organize others, in this fake atomized programmed engineered 'reality', that overlays an overwhelming tragic reality that is painful to look at we all co-created, so many have become stressed,mentally ill,sick, unable to live,unable to fight or don't know who the real enemies to their happiness are anymore ,overwhelmed,too obedient to authority,anxious,traumatized,too scared, unable to deal with the actual sad reality of what our lives have become because of the 1% that desire we live as we do.

Why so much misery,desolation,desperation,social awkwardness,isolation,abuse,escapism,addiction,silence and anxiety? Why do so many people in this country kill others or commit suicide? It's not because guns are all over the place,really.What is happening to the human heart,the soul the mind and body,the society we live within. WHY?

Maybe it's because the profit mongers secret keepers manipulators,social engineers,and all the participants ho make life so unreasonable who fail to ask what purpose their job serves,who benefits,who wants this study/program/tool/weapon and what for...?? Why this war, that war,why this economy type.(there are many other models for an economy without needing profit or accumulations of symbol-paper or credits to determine who gets what)..why do we tolerate this sadistic authoritarian modified token based economic society that has human beings living like an ant colony?T

Why tolerate the pollution making,the machines the 'ownership',the GMO's,the abuse,who does it benefit? Who does it hurt? and most of all why do we go along with this stupid painful deceptive travesty? Why do we not care enough for one another,why do we ignore and keep things compartmentalized,how long are we gonna play their games,by their rules,with our country, our lives our well being and the future,the animals and planet?

Some care a lot,some will never care, but somehow,love and trustworthiness is in such short supply.Why?What or whom made it like this? why do we tolrate intolerable people,intolerable lies ,intolerable machines,intolerable companies and social structures? And why do we keep going along with our own ruin and the planet's ruin.Is this short sighted imaginary zero-sum game(economies) and status/ pecking order bullshit so damn important? Really?

4. I think I know how you feel.

There is something deeply wrong with America. We seem to talk around all of our real problems, putting band-aids on hemorrhages. The gun issue is a good example. We talk about new laws banning certain weapons and this and that, but we never talk about the deeper issue. We have a kind of soul-sickness in our society, a nihilistic, destructive tendency that can't be legislated out of existence. We have a society that, with all its advances, has left us with a spiritual vacuum. We move from one thing to the next, thinking we'll be whole if we acquire that one extra possession, or person. Meanwhile, the world around us is crumbling and we do anything we can to block out our awareness of that fact, hoping we'll die before the shit truly hits the fan.

When America faces its great crisis, which I think is coming sooner rather than later, people are going to be looking around for someone to fill that hole inside, someone who'll make them feel better about things and give them a sense of purpose. I shudder to think of who that could be and what his plans are for us.

5. As a friend of mine likes to say:

 


"A mere ten thousand years of 'civilization' cannot undo ten Million years of evolution."

IOW: Yes, it is 'this short sighted imaginary zero-sum game(economies) and status/ pecking order bullshit'. It's wired into us to survive at any cost, and that survival means 'get all the resources you can'. So those with the power will constantly take from the powerless and vulnerable.

6. Well, half the population carries weapons according to you.

So I suppose that is understandable.

And no, you do not get to have a normal dialog with me after making such obnoxious and irresponsible statements.

You may as well put me on ignore.

7. I would recommend Al Gore's "The Future"

 

Although it isn't likely to make you feel any better. Still, it's an excellent read.

8. I WISH there was a single reason why...

but unfortunately there isn't. We perpetuate it every generation, a series of lies that only a few see for what they really are, a form or control foisted on us by those that need us as living revenue streams. Grow up, be responsible, get a good education and you'll get a good job, pay your fair share of taxes, play by the rules and retire comfortably. Lies, lies lies, all of it.

We cannot fix it because even if we do, it will be broken again in no time by those that want the control, the bragging rights of wealth or political power, or just the fact that their cow is bigger than your cow, or that the horse they ride is somehow "better" than the horse you ride.

We are the interchangeable and ultimately disposable tools for industry, fodder for the military in support of corporate profits and sponges to be squeezed of all that we have or are until we are dry.

I have told any who will listen that the time for change is NOW. Many agree, yet no one will do anything. Got a job to worry about, kids in school, a retirement to work toward and oh by the way, it REALLY ain't that bad.

Got a news flash for ya.

Yes it is.
