O.K. I will start by saying this is my first thread so if it is in the wrong place mods please move. I chose to post this question here because I am
torn on how I feel about this issue and am still trying to figure this out for myself. It has been on my mind for the last few days more so than ever
My question is this....
Who's fault is the world's current state of affairs? Is it the fault of "tptb", the "elite", whatever you want to call the ruling class? Or is
it, in reality, my fault, your fault, our fault?
I have many times in my life entertained the possibility that many, if not all, of the world's problems could be blamed on those who choose to try to
control the "average" person. I have been thinking however that maybe it is all of us that are at fault because in the end doesn't responsibility
lie within all of us? But then again, how does the "average" person make informed decisions based on the truth when they are conditioned from birth
to, in many instances, do the opposite?
Therein lies the problem for me and the reason for this thread.....I would enjoy some feed back and would like to hear the different types of
prospective that people have about this question.
I am personally stuck on the idea that I feel that there is a fundamental flaw in this world, in us as human beings and that is the reason for these
problems. Of course that is a bleak outlook and I would like to have hope that it is not the case and that at some point we can transcend and rise
above these problems. Of course what I would like to think or like to hope is true is not always how things are. Sometimes the truth hurts and maybe
this is one of those cases.
I don't know.....I'm just.....torn
