Think about this.
What if we convinced the members of a SINGLE football team to give up HALF of their checks to a certain charity for a month. A trustworthy charity.
Hell, I'd be the charity if I had to.
Then, football would actually have a purpose. This team would, literally, be playing to feed the hungry.
How do we cure famine and disease?
I dunno, but it's not gonna start in front of a tv screen.
Look how we're overwhelmed and suffocated with entertainment.
How is it we have the money to waste on our own leisure and brainwash, while there are people all over the world starving and dying?
I'm not a hippie, don't get me wrong.
But, I do see something SERIOUSLY wrong with ALL of our priorities.
No, not Americans. No, not Europeans.
All of us.
This isn't a "cultural" thing regarding how "Americans are so lazy" or anything.
ALL OF US ARE TO BLAME.
It's a cultural wrongness that all of humanity is embracing.
I feel guilty drawing, writing, or watching television.
There's so much more that needs to be done. There's so many better ways the money used for entertainment could be spent.
This idea spawned from my "Rant" thread... haha.
Maybe I'll follow through with this. Make a website, spread the idea, etc. We'll be hunting football teams.
