My husband and were talking about this last night. We have differing opinions on a lot of current issues.
At some point I started asking why so many in the world right now are so fed up and determined to burn down whatever system they currently live in?
It seems to me that the web, and access to so much information, was the spark.
Let's face it, throughout the history of man, there has been corruption in governments, there has been injustice for various parts of populations,
there has been class warfare and inequality, there has been serious economic challenges....and yet the humans were not at the point of asserting it
all needs to be blown up and destroyed. They were not fantasizing about doomsday and post apocalyptic survival as much as now.
Partly, everyone became more aware of "how it is elsewhere"- more aware of what they don't have, that others do. More aware of what they have that
others don't - even on the other side of the world.
We also started spending more time staring at screens then actually doing physical action. Less person to person contact and exchange. Where we used
to go to a market and see people in our community and exchange and touch, we now use one click on Amazon instead.
I think our bodies are missing being an active part our existence and our relation to the world. The struggle to survive gone, life and our actions
have less meaning. I think having access to all this information made a lot of people disheartened, and discouraged. When we could imagine it is
"better elsewhere" and aspire to getting elsewhere, there was some glimmer of hope that it isn't the world that is screwed up, "I'm just in the wrong
place at the wrong time".
Now we know when we get online in the morning - nope, there is no where better.
I keep finding myself repeating lately that certain populations seem to be suicidal to me. Not outwardly conscious of it, but taking actions and
ascribing to ideas that are ultimately going to lead to their own demise as a community.
Got into a heated debate with my husband because his strong feelings on what is wrong with our country is leading him to support a presidential
candidate that has made proposals which would entail me and our three children being deported.
It is like the didn't think that far to all the potential consequences. There's just this discontent and urge to end things with big exaggerated
And it is common, not only here but in other places. Personally, at this point, it seems like people are losing their minds and critical thought to
surges of emotion ; cortisol is cutting down their intellectual capacities.
But then....our subconscious tend to have the last word anyway. We can only hold her down for so many centuries before she comes up and takes over the
wheel, becoming the destroyer Goddess to set us all back on page 0- the blank slate, the restart....
