Exactly. I love your name btw. WatchNlearn... or as I say OBSERVE REALITY.
most people rather live in fantasy land.
however, I dont think its about respecting elders and all that, though I respect that and so on.. I think its about understanding that the FEW ELITE
people out there are NOT to blame for the world's problems..or your own problems.
lets entertain the idea that the ELITE START the wars? okay, but they dont actually FIGHT THEM. so the masses willingly choose to go to war.
even if the elite LIE to the masses, why do the masses believe them?
the answer is because doing this releases them from any responsibility in their minds.
now they can say, "I was lied to, not my fault" "I have to fight for my country" etc..
and yes, parents are exactly like that.
however, at some point in the child's life...when he/she gets older.. the person CHOOses to maintain that Mentality instead of taking
so the blame AGAIN lies with the individual.
so the child says, "its not my fault, I was raised with EVERYTHING so thats what I required, its my parent's fault"
again, a lack of responsibility.
I hate that sense of ENTITLEMENT.
"I work hard and the BOSS makes all the money, its not fair" they say
I say "nature is not fair, but also, why dont YOU become the boss."
