So happy to hear your voice!
I love your thoughts. I think the reason we aren't taught to look at ourselves and explore progressive thought is because there's no money and power
in that. The power is in control of the masses. The money is in having a fear-based, consumer-driven society. And that's what we have.
Fortunately, there are pockets of people who are realizing that they are being used and they are slowly breaking away from the consumerism trap. Many
are living "in the world, but not of it".
