The only thing we truly have control over is our own lives, and leading by example.

My question in this regard would be: have we cross the line that nothing could fix the damage except to let it destroy itself?

Living in the USA there is abundance, more than most places in the world, we all understand if we work really hard we can have it all, but this chaotic push will come at a cost.

Maybe it's not the common Joe who is to blame. Maybe it's the leadership in this country that is the problem.
The people who have all the power and money seem to be the only ones who ever get represented in this government. The robber barons rule!

I have made fundamental changes to my life which have led to greater satisfaction. Instead of focusing on work so much, I have riddled myself of most of my materialism.
Thanks to diving inward, I have realized that what I need most I already have. My body and breath are inalienably mine. My time is focused on maintaining and expanding my control over these two elements of life. Through mastery of these two, I dive further inward.
Instead of wanting things, I practice yoga and meditate.
We are broken. We can fix our world by realizing the change needs to happen first with us, and then taking the action to do so.
