The specifics of what I said isn't the point here.
My point was that too many seem to enjoy hating on how unbalanced society is, yet do nothing about it.
Many do too...I should add, but many don't and I find that quite hypocritical...
That was the point I was making, albeit poorly I suppose.
Ha! I know what you were doing but my seriousness took over. Not enough coffee just yet.
As far as hating on society and not doing anything. What would be the first step in changing the society in your opinion? I ask in all seriousness.
For me, I am surrounded by people who go with the flow and who do not care to stop watching TV, to put away the pc, buy smart in regards to humanity,
leave the gas powered vehicle at home, and so on... they look at me (family and friends) like I am crazy when I mention abandoning the life style they
love so much. Within my family and group I find myself alone.
I do not like sending my kids to school to learn stuff "they" want them to learn. I do not like learning something to make "them" more money in
regards to a job while I get a tiny portion that won't even pay for my kids clothes. I do not like being in a society where the biggest and best
means you are successful. I do not like the fact TPTB can do whatever they want in regards to ELE and not have any remorse whatsoever for humanity. I
hate war...if two people fight then they are both wrong in my opinion. I could go on and on but I think you get my point.
Where in your opinion does one begin to change society to fit a dream world where we all love and help one another instead of the opposite?
I was raised on a farm and was not involved in society too much because back then my area was still considered "country" and we lived off the land,
grew crops and ate our own food. We lived simple and wore hand me downs and looked fantastic. We ate dinner every night at the table with family and
talked of life's mysteries over dinner. It was nice compared to now. It has only been 25 years and our society has changed dramatically. What now? I
feel as though I am stuck with no where to go and no one on my side who is willing to take the lesser life for a more fulfilling life. Ya know??
