I noticed that you had place your same post on several threads.
I am no guru, and most certainly may not be of any help to you. I am only an insignificant nobody, but I can feel your confusion and perhaps
disillusionment, and thus, all I can do is to share a perspective and insight and hope that it may help.
Truth is often painful, for it shatters our pre-conceived notions as we had been social engineered to believe through education and the media. Without
that comfort and solace we humans need, a form of stability and assurance in life not only for ourselves, but for the next generations, we will only
flounder and struggle with the hard truths that lay before us.
There are many aspects to truth, for with the magic of languages, it can be twisted in many forms without presenting the real truth. It often takes
reality to truly wake us all up, as the recent financial crisis had proven. Many are suffering from its effects - foreclosure, bankruptcies, legal
letters, lower employment, etc, etc.
Truth had been greed that ruled for decades while many had blindly and apathically averted their eyes to allow it to continue on. Realities are the
consequences we face today.
Still, all is not lost, for the spirit of humanity is known as courage and resiliance, never say die or give up attitude, come what may, more so for
americans which accounted for its 200+ years of civilisation and might in social, economic and politics confronting disasters in many forms. A trait
every down and out human can relate to and take heart from, for no matter our differences, we are all one race-humans, with only common aspirations in
One must prioritise what is most important when faced with confusion and adversity. Number 1 is you, which you must take care of first. It is not
selfishness, but only pragmatism. If you cannot even take care of yourself, society cannot, and will not expect you to pitch in your share.
Second will be your loved ones. No man is born out of a rock. Every human life is precious. If you can take care of yourself, with a loaf a day, you
will be able to take care of those immediate loves ones, then radiating to your relatives and friends which makes up society.
Whatever the news from whatever media and the realities you face in life, come hell or highwater, survival priorities are the number one task you must
set first. Discuss and debate with others when you learnt of circumstances that are different from your daily life, to find out the TRUTH from lies,
rumours, heresay and BS. Then find the most pragmatic solution to deal with them. Hiding or living in delusions are no use, for when reality hits,
none will survive.
Think survival, not just for yourself alone but your love ones and society whenever possible and that's the key out of any predicament one will faces,
just as our resiliant ancestors had done, leaving none behind. Alone, we are powerless, but when combined, our strengths and its deployment will
ensure a better chance for survival of all. Be apathetic no more.
