Let's face it, as much as it frustrates most, if not all of us on these boards, that the majority of the world's population does nothing to fight
everything that is wrong, it is probably because they know that even a small taste of reality translates to debilitating depression.
I'm not a pshychologist, or an M.D. but if we look at how even a small portion of the population reacts to bad news, it's very easy to see why
people as a whole simply do not have the strength to face reality. I'm sure all of you here know at least one or two people that get easily
frustrated with news they see on yahoo.com or see on the 11 o'clock local news. I personally have (and have always had) to work and live with people
When people are made to believe that if you dont have a nice house that you remodel on a continuous basis, a new car every two years, a fishing boat
of some type, etc. You're just not a very good person, and so people keep working their fingers to the bone to achieve all this, and when they don't
achieve this, they think to themselves "What is wrong with me?"
That alone is a heavy burden for ANYONE to carry. Imagine then, for someone like this, to have to start worrying about the fact that their whole life
is based on a lie, and that the system they are bound by does not have their best interest in mind? What's easier, to face this ugly truth, or to
continue on a self-formed DELUSION that everything will be ok?
Does that excuse the fact that we all should fight for what we believe? of course not. Does it explain the fact that no one of the many agencies in
charge of the population's mental and physical health have been, and are derelict in their duties, Very much so. I think the only thing that is clear
is that we live in a society that lives in a state of low mental health, and no one is willing to accept this fact. Whether the powers that be know
about this, or if they were the ones that knowingly created this condition themselves, is, and sadly, always will be, a mistery.
