Its not about "if you dont like it here go to another country",
or "you shouldnt complain, leave if you dont like it".
Both of those statements just invite acceptance and tolerance, and we're talking about a deteriorating
governmental/sociopolitical/educational/financial/environment here, not just some isolated quirk, that affects a limited area or percentage of the
population. We're dealing with our entire country, its current condition and its future.
Accepting no responsibility and being collectively non participatory for several generations has caused this just as well as believing blindly
everything that was told and or done.
It's okay to get upset, as a matter fact it's okay to get really mad and pop your mouth off as much as you want, especially when it's appropriate,
better late than never, but, appropriate.
Complaints are needed ingredients in the tasty stew of freedom,
they add to the flavor and demand address.
Compiling the complaints, adding in suggested solutions, mixing them all together with continued genuine attention, and getting the feedback sure does
seem to do the trick to making the stew better.
Not everyone's a chef, there are many jobs in this kitchen preparing,
in the end, a stew, a meal, from which we're all going to eat.
So I say yes, share whatever thoughts you have, whatever options you can come up with. But dont you dare sit your butt at the table thinking youre
going to fill your belly if you havent participated in the work involved.
Consumption, without contribution? Is living with the fantasy that you are entitled, and we've already had enough of that parasitic behavior.
