Is it that things are spinning out of control, worse than they ever have before? OR is it in the best interest of a handful of people that the
majority of us believe this to be so?
When we perceive things as being beyond our control we tend to look for others to fix our woes. With massive societal issues, those "others" always
end up being Governments. And when Governments provide us with solutions to our problems it rarely, if ever, bodes well for the common man. The
so-called help ends up coming in the form of power or wealth consolidations that always benefit only a handful of people.
Just one look at main stream media information outlets (The news) tends to prove the point that we are being driven towards high levels of anxiety and
are innundated with hyperbole in ways that no other culture ever has been before. All of the stories hinge upon negatives. Death, war, famine,
drought, inflation, immigration, citizens being dispossessed of belongings or rights. It is a never ending smorgasbord of negativity. It is all doom.
This has to be by design and to serve a purpose.
My belief is that purpose is to make us, at once, desensitized and terrorized. Terrorized by the world, but too numb to effectively feel that we can
do much about it. We become no different than those who suffer the indignity of violent and personal crime. We develop the textbook victim mindset.
And THAT mindset benefits those who would make all of us into victims of their greed and agenda.
Think of it this way... Are things spinning out of control? Of course they are. Entropy works. Decay is basically what life does. And the little
nuances and rules of life tend to bleed over into every aspect of it. But are we worse off than any other culture? Ever? I think the Mayans,
Babylonians, Greeks, and Romans might not think so. We are still here. History tells us that we won't always be here. Nations will rise. Nations will
fall. It is a natural process. And we can accept that. We are on a roller coaster, in a way, and there's no way for us to deny it. Some roller
coasters utilize lighting effects to increase the sensation of speed. What we are being subjected to, as a society is no different than this. Just a
man behind a curtain, manipulating the light switch.
In the end all we have to do is pull back the curtain and show this man, behind the curtain, for what he is.
