we have to pay for our transgressions.
Well, FWIW, here`s a "rebuttal" (although I dont really disagree with what you`re saying).
What the "prevailing mindset" puts into motion does not have to be something I, as an individual put into motion. It doesnt have to have anything to
do with me. Its called "going against the grain".
I´ve cleaned up on a personal level. At the age of 25 I filed a voluntary tax evasion report on myself thereby experiencing the joy (not the "have
to") of dealing with my transgressions. I lost a lot of money. Having lost all, I had nothing more too loose...which can be quite a liberating
Later on I again lost everything because my field of business was in a "crisis". This "loss" inspired my own self-employment which has generated
more fun and income than I would have ever had had I tried to keep that job I lost. It is the sort of income that (I will not share it here) is
crisis-proof, purposefully having chosen stuff that would be somewhat independent of the "collective" you say I have to deal with.
I wouldnt have made it crisis-proof if I hadnt experienced several crises myself.
So this "crisis" is not really a bad thing. It wakes up complacent minds, imo.
