It is something to look forward too, Im like a fish out of water in our global controlled society, so I can't wait.
I think the "new world", despite its chaos, danger, and horror, would prove to be more rewarding than anything this "modern" way of life has to offer. It would be more fulfilling, simpler but sweeter, than this materialistic civilization is. Modern people are not living the way life is meant to be lived. Everything is artificial, temporary, unjust, where hard work gets you almost nowhere, where knowledge isn't revered but information is, where spirituality is corrupt, but churches and schools "aren't". There has to be a better way than this and I think more and more people are waking up to this virtual reality we find ourselves in, fueling the fire of change that is upon us. I just hope I'm around long enough for the good to come out of it
