Of course you are addressing inertia, inevitability, and cause and effect - along with the sorrowing human predisposition to lack perspective when within, and not outside of a given situation. While your analogy is a bit dated to me ( Do people still bowl for any other reason than to have an excuse to drink beer at 2:30 in the afternoon? ) I can wholeheartedly relate to the metaphor that is contained within.
Yes, my friend, the ship is sinking. And you are correct in your position that not many people seem interested in seeking out flotation devices. But here's the rub... when people do wake up to the doom that is sneaking up on them like George Michael in an all male bar... the ensuing panic will cause the ship to list and to flounder.
The longer we can control the masses and their knee-jerk, all to late reaction, the longer we all shall live.
Wow.. I gotta up my dosage...
