Maybe it's how I grew up and saw so many people who destroyed their own lives. Like I feel people do not have any self respect for themselves or
others. But I just feel troubled because I have to live in this mess and I want to break free from the suffering. Sorry for the rant but I cannot
always have a good day.
IMO, a major part of the problem is that we are trapped!
Trapped in concrete cities, trapped by money, trapped by greed-based politics, trapped by a worthless public education system.. the list goes on.
We are taught that the ideal life is to achieve some miserable yuppie status via monetary status symbols, which only a fraction can realistically
We are rarely
taught by the system to respect nature, to abhor processed foods or to come together in our communities.
We are only taught to 'vote' for the next serpent representative (not to think for ourselves,) to see our doctor for the latest experimental
medicines (not to research vitamin deficiency,) and to obey the law (never question it.)
We are taught to be patriotic, but never question the overall motives of our country's policies.
We are taught to acquire the latest technology, but never question its necessity.
As you can see, there are many angles from which we've been trapped and suffocated.
It's up to those of us who are sick of it (like you) to spread new ideas, however small our impact on society may be.
