While I would very much like to believe that it is not 'too late', and I hold tight to my hope that something miraculous will occur to 'save' this
world, the problem is just that - it would take "something miraculous".
It is a sad fact that this world (on all 'fronts': societal, ecological, economical, political) is teetering on the brink of catastrophe. There are
two possibilities at this point - either something will suddenly 'give' and we will quickly tip over the edge, or we will continue to 'teeter' for
another generation (50 - 60 years)...after which we will begin a rapid 'slide' down the side of the chasm we have been digging out under our
And unfortunately, there is no 'great awakening' of humanity happening (at least not currently) - the percentage of people who are 'aware' enough
to 'unify' consciousness and attempt manifestation of a world saving 'reality' is dismally small, and I can show you the 'math' from the
perspective of personal experience:
Having married up from the lowest of lower classes to the upper middle class, I have a unique view of thousands of people in all walks of life (not
counting people online), and I assure you, they all have blinders on...
...They are all convinced (and this has become cliche') that - 'sure some aspects of life are a bit worse than in the past, but really there's no
big difference, it's only that it all just 'looks' much worse, because in this day and age the internet gives an exaggerated view of the 'news'
(i.e. the specifics of 'what goes on' in the world).
To illustrate the above 'thinking' here's another cliche': When the recession hit, you heard things like, 'Well, people lived thru The
Depression back in the 1930's - and if it comes down to that, it will be hard, but we'll get thru it just like 'we' did before' -
- None of these people see the huge difference in society between now and back then, for example: In the 1930's depression one 'problem' was all
the people knocking on your door begging for food - If a Depression happened now, the 'difference' in that 'problem' would be all the people
blasting your door in to murder you for your food!
Now here's the "math" I mentioned:
Out of thousands of people (and between the people I personally know, and those I 'know of' thru friends, relatives, and acquaintances - I promise,
I'm not exaggerating)...
...literally out of thousands - there is exactly one, just one other person (besides me), I know of who is aware of all the factors indicating that
the world is (for want of a better word) 'doomed' unless enough conscious unification for 'saving' it can be achieved.
Two people out of thousands - and I would bet that ratio would be fairly consistent on a world-wide scale, less than .002 percent of the population
who are even aware of how 'endangered' the world is...
Just to add some perspective as to 'who' I am and thus 'whence' I speak:
I'm not a doom 'sayer' (i.e. not into 'doom porn')...I hesitated even to write this post - I'm not one of those people who seem to 'want' the
end of the world (as we know it)...
...I have a 16 yr old daughter who has known since grade school, what she wants to 'be' when she grows up - and even has the educational 'path'
she needs to take planned out...
...It breaks my heart to know that by the time she finishes the necessary schooling, it will likely be obvious that her career of choice will, sooner
or later but well within her lifetime, become obsolete...
I also struggle with the idea of 'preparing' for the eventual breakdown of 'civilization'. To do so, I would need to 'remove' the blinders my
husband 'wears' - but I don't want him to have to see what I know...I don't want him to have to deal with the pain of the reality that the 'end'
really is so near - that his only child's life dreams are all but hopeless...
And even now, having spent over two hours composing and typing all this, I feel badly about posting it...I don't want to add to the 'negativity',
but then again, can anything truly be accomplished by ignoring 'reality' in favor of positivity?
Yet, as I said, I hold tight to hope, which is why I am posting this, because maybe there's someone who can show me where the hope is -
Because if you can't show me 'hope' in 'real' terms, if you can't show the "math", then that really isn't hope - that's just pie in the
