In other words, you feel that things will happen to you, rather than that you will make them happen. It may be nice on some level to not feel responsible for your own future, but in general it leaves people disengaged, helpless and less likely to take action. Believing that you are in control of what happens to you (for the most part) makes you happier, healthier (literally - as in fewer illnesses and faster recoveries), and more effective."

to NOT see we need change in this world is living with blinders.
We have been living ''the old way'' too long and things have to change radically.
People who do think they are in control of their lives dont feel the need for change, this is simple logic.
The majority of the people in the world are screaming for change while a good portion, mostly westerners, are quite happy with their lives and don`t think much about the rest of the world and wouldnt care less.
They just want their cheap goodies from China, made by people who are just modern day slaves in a worldy system where everyones ok with it.
A system where 1% of the population controls the power and the money is a recepy for disaster and should change to facilitate and benifit all humans.
The argument used is flawed and thought up by people who only see this system as the only way to go, thereby attacking people who want change by saying they are not in control of their own lives.
This government ruled system is our daddy now and its a very abusive one at that, and also, right now we are being a sugar daddy to our abusive daddy and we love it like that.
Let them analyze that for a change...
Hey! and our mommies are lost now
Hey! Daddys someone else
Hey! and we love the abuse because it makes us feel like we are needed
