So I ask you:
What do you see occurring in 2012? Be honest. Tell me what you believe may happen, and tell me what you want to happen. Be honest, this is a friendly area. All answers are welcome.
What do I see? I see secrets of old being revealed. I see many nations attempting to take the lead in these "new" systems of energy production that will become common knowledge. I see somethings being leaked that a lot of people are not ready for. I see the beginning of the post industrial society, one in which machines become the industry and create for the people. I see people starting to learn how connected they are to one another and the universe at whole. I see hope.

OP, you are not doing enough metaphorical killing. You need to kill more. Don't help anybody. Destroy them. That is what your boss does at work. That is what the animals in the jungle do. You need to learn to compete. Stop reaching backwards to help somebody along and start moving forwards to build and create something better in the future. Let the others die off. Become a killer metaphorically. Take. Don't give.

This is the worst advice on this thread.
This advice is telling the op to conform right back into what he is having troubles with conforming to. Your just telling him to conform after he has a "bit" of freedom from the grind. It's not about conforming to any of todays crazy slave ways. I don't have a better peice of advice. I can just say if your going to go against the system make sure you educate yourself beyond the means of need. It's all b.s. any way. I own my own company and I still want this and want that. I have financial security and I still can't say I'm happy, Most people would trade places with me, but it's a virus, you want more, you need more, your never happy, Bigger house..get it....high end cars..get it.. live a life people wish they had...And then it starts all over again,again,again, My only happyness is my kid and my wife every thing else is just a damn rat race. So kids I'm telling you don't take her advice. Don't spread your wings to fly and then eventually return to where you started from only in a different spot. Buck the system! Buck it! Buck it! And don't look back!
