But for the most part, people will go on about their business as always.
@watchitburn : you called those people who really HOPE that at least *something* would/should happen on December 21 2012 a "human stupidity" ?
let me tell you what's "human stupidity" actually really is:
it's the sheer level of MASS Ignorance that currently perpetuates almost every facet of our current/today's mainstream or "normal" society, as if
NOTHING really happens, and worse, "well... life/business just goes as whooppe usual" !
you call deteriorating economic & financial crisis worldwide "life/business as usual" ?
you call ever-more widening gap between the 1% rich & 99% poors and poverty rate increasing in the world "life/business as usual" ?
you call the obviously "silent" mainstream media (TV, newspaper, magazines) on some very important issues facing our society, or even our planet or
species, and instead they just mindlessly
broadcasting all latest news about those 'fake' celebrities, a "life/business as usual"
and lastly, you call the mindless
"mainstream" society/people nowadays getting way too absorbed in the consumerism, consumption, &
'harsh' capitalism, greedy-for-MONEY/profits-and-status-only kind of lifestyle a "life/business as usual" ? ...
it's exactly because of 1) NOTHING seems to change, 2) most layman ordinary people seems to be Ignorant, or the willing one are too often too
confused & clueless (or even seems hopeless!) on How to create a REAL change(s) , and 3) the everyday's harsh & mundane daily "reality" in this
so-called "real world/real life" keep going on yet at the same time getting worse
,.. that I have to agree with one of my friends when
"I am not afraid if on December 21, 2012 it's the end of the world,
but what I'm afraid is if on that date, NOTHING changes !
I am honestly sick & tired with the world/society/humanity nowadays..
