I haven't seen anyone on the lecture circuit or beyond that seems to have it 100% but there are some things DC has said that seem to ring true. If
"help" has been on the way since WWII that would make some of the earliest around 70 years-old by now. I am 60 and have always been just a step or two
ahead of the trends. There are some aspects of what she has said I can relate to.
I am much more "liberty-minded" than most anyone I know. I have ideas about tailoring communities to accept just about every societal "aberration"
that occurs with frequency, such as letting thieves live among thieves, murderers among murderers, and so on with the more extreme examples. There are
a lot of more common "deviations" that we could easily live with, still somewhat extreme but lesser examples would be gambling and prostitution that
used to be limited to the state of Nevada. Why not "gay" communities, athiest communities, drunkard and drunk-driving communities, and very
strict-standard communities along with everything in between? People would not have to try to resist arrest as law enforcement would be "friendly"
with the purpose of just trying to find a good "fit" for everyone. I really oppose a one-size-fits-all type of justice system.
When much younger I felt out-of-place and depressed by what I saw going on around me, the inadequacies and injustices of our systems. By many
religio-spiritual systems we are told we have lived physical lives many times before though have no recollection of those lives. I don't see why a
"volunteer" as described here would be any different, and I could certainly see why there would be some problems in that entity adjusting to a system
that was deemed to be out-of-whack. No mystery there.
Being a "step ahead of the crowd" I have witnessed many profound changes occurring shortly after I went through them. Examples of this would be
much-relaxed dress codes at our schools, behavioral expectations, and the like. There has been many strict systems become more relaxed afterwards,
though in some areas that I did not attend some of the reverse has also been true.
Looking at where we are today I am not sure if changes I may have helped bring about have all been for the positive. Many people seem to need to be
told where to go, what to do, and how to do it and are much less independent than myself. Those people I may not have helped at all, and if anything
just made the situation worse. I might think the experiment has failed then. Perhaps the idea was to bring it all to a climax, and we certainly seem
to be heading to some sort of climax to occur any time now - things just can't seem to sustain much longer. This could be good, or bad. we shall see.
It is certain though that some changes need to occur sooner than later.
Not at all foreseen or planned well in advance I found myself packing up and leaving the US fairly suddenly in the mid 2000's. It was very odd how
things just fell into place to comfortably make my exit. I expect to see some major changes come down soon but will be at a comfortable distance to
view this happening. Again, I was a step ahead of a growing crowd that is leaving there now.
Whether or not D. Cannon is correct I can see myself as part of the movement she describes. I only recently in the past year or two became aware of
her and what she is saying but it does seem to fit my situation growing up to present time. She offers no clue as to what may occur in the near future
so I am not being influenced by her theory. All I can say is she did "nail it" a number of times in my situation so I might say that, yeah, I could be
one of those in the First Wave she has described.
