Let me tell you buddy, I have worked for Wal-Mart for going on my eleventh year now, and have met tens of thousands upon thousands of people selling
them junk out on the sales floor. The reality is, MOST people are in fact decent kind human beings. A lot of them are idiots for damn sure, but they
are nice people overall. One of my pet peeves though is when someone who has zero clue as to how to use a piece of technology wants me to give them a
crash course on something they do not even have a basic understanding. Take an eighty year old woman who cannot even use a computer, but she wants me
to explain how to use a tablet. I CANT DO THAT IN FIVE MINTUES TIME for someone who cannot even type on a keyboard. Still though, very very sweet ol
lady. Plus I am just an hourly salesman, not a specialist who went to trade school or college.
What you have to also understand is that EVIL wants its presence to be known and assumed to be the only presence. That is the point of evil. And evil
creatures control what you see and hear in media. Therefore although it may appear that the world is nothing but shambles in a cesspool of disgusting
human filth based on TV news, radio and newspapers, the truth is quite contrary. I find Newspapers to report more good than bad as compared to network
broadcasts. I believe it has to do with the fact that they do not have to grab as much attention as they can in thirty second time slots per story.
As stated prior though, if you step outside and actually experience the world, preferably on foot that's my favorite way (or bike) you will come to
realize and see many good people and deeds. One of my favorite things to do every week on my days off is ride my bike down the road here by my house
and stop in to all the local businesses which I find interesting.
In the half mile from my home to my job, I know the guy at the comic book shop, two different cell phone dealers, the smoke shop guys, the family of
the best Spanish food restaurant on this stretch of road, all the staff at both the gas stations, the owner of my barber which is next to the tattoo
guys I hang with occasionally, the other barber shop across from the 7 eleven has some very loud and wild events (Dominicans
), the insurance
guy next to that barber shop, and the vapor shop in that very same plaza is also owned by the smoke shop guys I mentioned earlier. I know all these
people, and they know me. Most of them are very good people. Some I know do some shady things, but nothing malicious.
This is one little stretch of road in a city of about 350,000 .
And then there's another stretch from my dads old nutrition club.
When people do most of their interaction with human beings over a screen, where they also get the bulk of their media, they are going to meet a lot of
ill mannered people, and sub-consciously make that connection with the bad thins they read and hear. This leads to a pessimistic mindset without even
One has to actually put feet to ground and speak to complete strangers everyday in person to understand that their is a disconnection of truth to what
they perceive based on screen time, and the reality of the people they can speak with in person. Not to mention as their can be very little recourse
for poor manners and rude behavior over a screen, many immature people will act like complete jerks. But one must not forget that in a person to
person interaction, those same jerks typically act quite different, or they may end up meeting a fist to the face or worse.
I have had a computer since 13 (now 29) , and I have never felt the urge to speak or behave or interact differently with other people online than in
person. Courtesy should be consistent. Its why a lot of the younger generation will look at a random stranger who only has good intentions that
approaches with a warm welcome with sort of an apprehensive and/or cynical attitude. They are judging that individual in person with the only
pre-conceived notions they have of the people online who can act as jerkish as they please.
History is on the side of progress. If it looks like only bad horrible things, acts, and people are taking this world away based on what you see and
hear on media, then the truth is opposite. Evil is losing and is lashing out with a 24/7 broadcasting of its most terrible deeds in an attempt to gain
the upper hand discouraging the world. it is a losing battle, and good deeds always triumph. Bad people want attention, good people are content doing
good deeds with the need to be acknowledged.
