Im not at all apathetic. I have some very strong opinions on politics, ethics, morality, and the slow decline of science, and the steady rise of
liars and falsifiers to stand in its place.
However, I am British, and although I do occasionaly post up in a US specific thread, people ignore or dismiss my comments often because I am not
American. They believe that to know a places history, and its politics, that you have to BE from that place, or at least inside it. These people , of
course, are ignorant philistines who wouldnt know what a healthy world veiw was if it jumped up and kicked thier ribs to calcium dust, but it makes
thier dismissals no less aggravating.
I also post up pretty frequently on the political situation in my own nation, and generaly the discussions on those threads tend to be very spirited,
and not at all lacking in energy , vibrancy , and fervour. It is not true to say that apathy is on the rise, but it is true to say that as our options
for action become fewer and fewer, our conversations become stronger and more powerfuly worded, the feelings of dissatisfaction grow deeper, and our
will to resist negative change by our leaders only increases.
