I feel bad for you guys, BUT I HAVE A GREAT SOLUTION FOR YOU ALL!
Tired of feeling 'alone' on these things? You can stop this week.
Almost every single city and town has some sort of "ANTI-WAR" group or organization or a similar "working for change" network where you will find
people exactly like yourself and happy to meet you.
Those people, who are against war (for example) and are actively doing something about it, meet regularly to discuss upcoming demonstrations and the
like and post dates and locations of these meetings all over the net or the town, inviting you to show up and meet them.
And before you say..
"Yeah but I don't want to get involved in that sort of thing."
..the thing is, you don't HAVE to 'get involved' in much at all.
Just attend one meeting, and during the open round table introductions you say..
"Well, I'm John Smith and a friend of mine suggested I come here because I'm just tired of being the only person I know who feels things are not
right these days, and I wanted to JUST SEE how THIS sort of thing works, and meet some of you who are actively working for change and perhaps maybe,
either get involved down the line or at least attend future lectures and presentations if I find I enjoy this."
During the meeting they'll have an adjenda and all the little groups that have representatives there at that ONE antiwar meeting (enviromental types,
political group types, new agers - all sorts) will hand you TONS of FREE print newspapers you didn't know existed one at a time, pamplets for all
sorts of stuff you can get involved in! Every group gets to bring up their 'issue' or event one at a time, and depending on how the group is
organized, there might be an over all goal that needs to be addressed. You can JUST sit and LISTEN.. its okay. Everyone was new once.
Immediately you'll find out that you have at the very least 100 people who think and feel like you do right away. Just by going to one meeting and
barely being involved. You'll meet people who think JFK was killed by aliens, and people who don't know what HAARP is. Everyone in between too.
LISTEN.. don't speak too much, you don't have to talk, let them talk. Get a feel for the group.
Exchange emails. Go out for coffee after the meeting. Make new friends.
Also its not a bad way to meet a partener who doesn't watch realty TV all day either! The antiwar movement has a great dating scene and thats just a
bonus if you really find a place for yourself in there. An Enviromental group, a politcal party, antiwar / propeace and antiproverty whatever, just
start somewhere and they all network, so you'll find a place for yourself.
AND THERE IS ONE OTHER THING you should know; often the 'group' itself is just a 'front' or 'excuse' for this very purpose. Many people who are
members of the group are not hardcore demonstration organizers (most are not) many are just very cool people who care enough to seek out other people
who want to see a postive and real change in the way our world works.
So, don't think you're going to end up drinking kool-aid or something... its not like that, really.. you'll be surprised at how 'cool' it
You have nothing to lose, and many new and cool friends to make, and SO MUCH to learn.. far more than you can on these boards, believe me. And you'll
feel better too. You'll just feel better because you'll find out you are SO NOT ALONE and MANY PEOPLE ARE AWAKE.. and they meet regularly to talk
about the ONE THING they all have in common.. the fact that they are NOT SLEEPING (in fact they'll probably disagree on everything else.. but at
least they'll have an opinion and be aware).
Get to it.. you are NOT alone, "The Matrix" just has you thinking that.
See? You already now know that you are not as aware as you thought you were.
Best time to get involved is this time of year too! Concider this your invite to not be alone anymore, Neo.
