well maybe the jedi are our only hope.
seriously, i think for people who really want to survive anything - then you have to be able to live off the land like an australian aborigine can.
or know which caves to shelter in like the american indians seem to do. if there is a huge disaster i think these people will be the most likely to
survive of any of us.
it is pretty sad when you see millions of people driving in rows of traffic, following orders, living their lives according to the pattern and plan
that other people (their leaders - who they dont even know or understand at all) have laid down for them. never suspecting that those in power may
not give two figs about them.
but more worrying i think, is people themselves. people are oppressed and downtrodden by those at the top who are often bad people. But that isnt
the whole problem. Its PEOPLE who are themselves the problem. many people are cruel and selfish. (and i am not saying i am any better), but lets
just look at it: we have caged chickens, we have pigs kept in tiny pens; we have live exports of animals in ships oversees where thousands die on the
crowded journey or starve to death (like the slave ships in africa),we have bear baiting, bears kept in tiny cages in china; experiments on monkeys;
lobsters boiled alive; people abandoning their pets at shelters as if they were a toy they got sick of, not a member of their family or child- which
is probly how the animal sees itself; we have child prostitution in thailand and asia; we have horrific abuse of girls and women all over the world;
and i could go on for pages but i wont. (not to mention the lovely things we did to each other in the past: altho, a lot of the horrible things like
the inquisition, burning witches, wars etc are probably at the instigation of the leaders - but still, people carried out their orders, just like in
the german camps).
the problem is PEOPLE. if everyone could see that this stuff is wrong; and stopped following orders, wouldnt all the bad stuff stop too? If people
stopped looking up to their leaders and started demanding better from them - better people to lead them. In short, if everybody WOKE UP.
and CARED about each other and animals and nature.
Is that likely to happen?
can anyone tell me?
becuz it seems that everything is driven by ego. people do degrees for the prestige and piece of paper. they are selfish and dont care about those
less fortunate.... but i think most people are blinded most as a result of their egos and arrogance.
as a result they dont see the wool being pulled over their eyes about so many things... (also people are naive and dont expect to be betrayed by those
in power etc)
again, im not excluding myself from criticism either.
