I hear you on this, I really do.
I totally agree with EVERYTHING you've said and I KNOW you are on the right path.
What you have laid out is EXACTLY the single reason humanity is in the mess it is in.
No one wants to hear what you are saying!
For the very same reasons you laid out in your OP.
Egos are just too big, overfed, and powerful for most people to come to terms with the fact that THEY are the ones to blame for children getting
killed in drone attacks on the other side of the planet.
It takes a certain level of........__________ to get to the point where you are finally ready to accept responsibility for everything you are seeing
in the world, and to realize that YOU contributed SOMETHING to EVERYTHING you can even imagine complaining about.
I have seen these threads fail many times and yours will be no different.
People just aren't ready to hear what you have to say I'm afraid.
I got the "hutzpah," which is generally the G rated word used to fill in your blank. It's not that people are not reay to hear what the OP is
saying, I believe. And it isn't overfed ego, at least not in the general population, that means some of us will not accept responsibility for the
current state of affairs.....
Do you really think that many of us cognizant of what is happening, more and more, on a daily basis, wouldn't like that to stop? I was on a flight
one time, and we were waiting on the tarmac to take off. We were told there was some equipment failure or malfunction they were seeing to, clearing
up. Someone, after an hour, got up to use the restroom. A flight attendent came over the PA system and said if we didn't obey the rules as
passengers to stay seated, we would not be allowed to take off.
In other words, it was the passengers' faults that we were waiting, which just wasn't so....however, a passenger caught trying to see to their own
needs, was quickly blamed for us all sitting on that tarmac. This is the current paradigm, and what happens if you try to speak, much less do,
differently. Who can accept responsibility in an atmosphere where no one can even nail down the "crimes" that led us here? If the primary
discussion is not open, and open to absolutey everyone, with all cards on all tables, why should anyone accept responsibility, for a situation in a
place they were never told the truth about, nor the rules about, from the beginning? And when they didn't choose it, either.
Our response to it, is how we are responsible. But until more information is available to everyone, on an equal basis, and the information is
accurate....well, then, pardon me, but you have no right to say I have no hutzpah, or anything else, to take in this information and respond the way
you desire me to.
