and fortunately this one sees it. i can promise, it is pretty lonely when you see your generation for what it really is. i am twenty, and its all i saw. i studied it because i couldnt believe how stupid it all was. our children willl have no concept of bounds, or penalty. the kids can just call CPS.
remember, if people dont want to hear something, it can do more harm than good to push it on them.
if you do try to wake up your peers, they will most likely not care unless it directly affects them. lead by example, all of our other brothers and sisters seem to be as brainwashed as they want, its sad

I won't try and tell you otherwise because your are correct in your assessment. I would just say that hopefully the worse it gets, the closer we are to real change, and that maybe it is better to put energy and attention on loved ones and local community at this point. Our town is creating co-ops, and buying food from local farmer's, organizing commuting for transportation, and kind of moving towards a self sustained hood. Poeple are really invloved with meetings and seeking solutions on a microcosm level. Granted we are a progressive town but the efforts seem to keep people's spirits from falling off of a cliff.
