Nothing you can do about it?
why are you saying that?
I don't mean me specifically. In general, most people I know feel very helpless about the massive problems facing our government, our society. Our
individual lives are so damned complicated we can barely get through them.
So they turn their eyes away, and worry about their own checkbooks, their own health, their own problems. And hope for the best.
People won't get truly concerned until the public problems intrude on a very real and personal basis. Even then - which massive problem to deal with
first? There are so many! Where would I even start if someone made me Queen of America and gave me full power to do anything I wanted? (I'm being
funny, not ignorant of US government, just so you know.)
It's too overwhelming to even worry about. So people check out. Besides... there's something new on the telly! And the iphone is ringing, and we have
32 new Mafia requests on facebook! And... whut were we talking about?
That is what I meant.
Even on here, you can can't get anyone to focus on one topic for ten seconds. They're busy worrying about Nibiru, or secret societies, or
chemtrails... what is actually IMPORTANT? Who decides?
