Everywhere i look around me i see people yelling at everyone in their cars, pushing people around verbally at gas stations, grocery stores, and everywhere else. People have this general attitude of being better then everyone around either due to finance or due to thinking they are more intelligent. I see it from poor people, rich people, kids, adults and old people alike. Its almost as if a spirit of super ego has been embraced by our entire nation.

At one point in this country we used to care about each other. We used to stand for something honest and hard working. People cared about the community they lived in and the people in it. Now people practice what i call cannibalism. They eat the person below them to fatten their wallets. I believe this is apart of the modern corporate culture where your loyalty to the company is paramount to your responsibility to the person next to you to be honest and trustworthy.

What happened?

Whats happening?

Its changed so much in my short lifetime.

You must live in a larger city...because I see pretty much the opposite every day. And I live near Cleveland. LOL

Or are you talking about how Atlanta seems to be freaking out today?

It's stress - financial stress, winter stress, everything.

They're either living above their means and freaking out about it, or unable to support themselves and their families and freaking out about it.

It's the fecal matter partially hitting the rotating air device, First Act of a 100 Act Play.

Regretfully i live in a big city.

I will continue to do so until at which time the universe provides for me a way into a rural area.

Traveled to Toronto, saw the same thing there.
Have a good friend that lives in London and another that lives just outside and they both complain about the same behavior there.
It's not an American thing, it's a mankind thing.

All the best things in life are free. Surround yourself with people who know and live by that. I see the same thing every day and it annoys me from time to time. I live in Long Island NY. I also see people helping each other out and cooperating to make something bigger happen. Sometimes you have to slow down long enough to see the brighter side of things. The people you are talking about, you are just witnessing them when they are in a hurry. We all have to join the rat race from time to time, but I don't believe they are all cannibals. Vampires maybe... Zombies.. probably.

Well...you can decide to be part of the solution, or part of the problem. I deal with it every day, just like you and everybody else.

I can either be cynical or humorous...for the most part, I try to be the later, but slip from time to time. I feel bad, but I forgive myself. I'm only human.

It's stress from the preasure of time.

People have so many things they need to do before they die, pushing everyone away and get first is the only solution they have.

Blame the clock.

Your post contains contradictory comments
You see it in poor people, then it's people who fatten their wallets.

Not everyone who has more money than you, wouldn't offer a helping hand if you needed it.
With that attitude though you're probably right. Maybe others pick up on that and treat you as you've described


I don't see people acting like this . Maybe isolated cases, but not society as a whole.
I don't live in America. I'm across the border in Canada.

Maybe take a break from ats or whatever influenced these thoughts.

I would trade you your big city for my rural at this time. What I see - no one knows how to do anything anymore. When I was growing up I learned to drive properly - you actually had to pass a test back then - does that still apply (sarcasm). If I ask someone to help me put weather stripping up I hear, "oh wow man...I don't have a clue how to do that...see ya". I've met young people who can't use a screw driver or hammer. I've met people who have no clue how to cook an egg let alone a meal. There is a value in picking up skills along the way in life - other than how to use a remote.

And yes - people are self absorbed. Disconnected and all about self. It's a different world today than the one I grew up in. I've seen it for some years now. On a positive note - there are still good people - everywhere. There are also still people who learn basic skills. I just don't see as many of them anymore.

I moved away from the city because of the lack of involvement in community that I generally saw in cities and because the noise level was driving me nuts. Here people greet each other even though strangers. Pretentiousness is low, as is crime. In winter we are all fellow sufferers and survivors. The pace is better and there's not as much of a maze to navigate in the rat race. Kindness still exists and that is a value I cherish in my neighborhood. It may be poorer in cash but it sure makes up for it in other ways. I have never witnessed a road rage incident here nor abject rudeness except between teens.

There is a butcher here who will serve us fresh meat, a baker who does not use preservatives, local sports and arts clubs and I appreciate all of it. After a recent brutal snowfall, the plow driver cleared the snowbank in front of my place to allow me easier access to my car, something he was not expected to do, nor asked to do. I feel lucky to live here even though my close friends live elsewhere, battle rush hour and seem a thousand times more stressed. My kids are city dwellers and are stressed out. I'm taking time to smell the roses, as they say. Moving was a difficult decision to make, but I don't regret my move at all.

Maybe thats the problem?

Sounds great.

Ive lived in great rural communities as well but its hard to come by.

Living in the city reminds me of the rats in a box test. To many rats and they start eating each other.

The breaking point is long coming. You can't have this much poverty, growing poverty of the once comfortable middle class not knowing how to deal when they lose everything because of foreclosure and or divorce to jobs losses, people on big pharma meds, rental culture- where cars, homes, etc., etc, people's relationships too, is not permanent but changed every so often. How in the hell is that healthy? Children of families that move around a lot, especially in poverty situations, suffer greatly mentally. The last decade the country has been run on a fear culture. Now that is directed to the American citizen because the boogie man has been taken care of(OBL).

I rather see it as start of awakening since most people start to think that whatever they’ve been spoon fed for hundreds of year was crap and lies.

What you see is side effects…

I can understand.
I have been struggling with the frustrations as well.

I think I will just U2U my thoughts on it since I'd rather not say them publicly.

As above so below as the expression goes.

The Corporate and Banking Media Propaganda, the Politicians and agendas trickle down to the masses.
They scream about Personal Responsibility to the masses below them while programming them at the same time to be Ayn Rand Worshipers as themselves.

No one individual exists in a vacuum.
It takes a village to raise an individual as the saying goes.


Back in the day, when I was in the military, I got invited by a friend to join a Satanic Mass onboard the ship.
It was the first and last day I ever took part in it. I was disgusted by it. My friend on the other hand had no problem with it.
It's core message was all about the worship of the self.

So here we are today, where anything but worshiping yourself is creeping into "socialism" or some other taboo word where consideration is given to others and we wonder why we are in the mess we are in?


There are many that run around like animals with no soul, utilizing survival of the fittest as their motto.
I remember something from the Bible from my younger days about living in the spirit and not being of this world.

When i move around in inner city of Copenhagen i have a little thing i like to watch.

I call it "The big dance".

It's when people line up on each side of a pedestrian crossing in the white stripes full lenght.

The dance starts when the light is red, it's a sort of tap dancing they step around while waiting for the light to turn green, trying to get a good pole position.

Then when the light turns green, they all move forward on both sides.

Then comes the real dance when they meet on the middel, they start moving left and right in the direction as the person in front of them, some even grap their "dancing partner" or spin around, noone knows what to do they just wanna move forward.

In the end they all get through, but it's not all over, they start shaking their head in dissbelieve of the person who was infront of them, and then continue to their distination.

The easy solution would be to stick to the right in your walking direction, left if you are british
but thats not a solution to them as they "all" wants to be the dominater that pushes one in front of them away.

It would be fun to watch if cars did the same

This is not just America you're talking about. However, I think we've nobody to blame but ourselves. A person can go down the 'conspiracy' road if they like and say it's TPTB that are manipulating us etc, or it's that music is in 440hz and all that. I don't agree for the most part. I'll give you an example, if you'll indulge me, my son is 6 months old, my partner and I are not going to get him baptized. We don't want to for our own reasons, we live in a Catholic country where it's a huge no-no to not to baptize your baby. Everybody I know who has kids has had their children baptized, all of these people feel the same as my girlfriend and I, they don't go to church, they're not religious, yet they had their children baptized. Why? Because they don't want their kids to 'stick out' etc. This is basic human mentality. As far as I'm concerned most people don't give a hoot about principles, about what is right or wrong, they just want to get on with their existences. It has always been like this, if you read books written hundreds of years ago you'll see that back then people were just the same, the majority anyways. I'll be honest, the majority of humans are what my friend calls 'bottom feeders', sounds bad but I'm starting to agree, about 10% of people I've met in my life are people who I would like to meet again. Sounds bad doesn't it? That's how I feel. There's no conspiracy here as far as I'm concerned, humans are inherently self absorbed creatures, don't believe me? Pick up a book written by a Buddhist hundreds of years ago in Asia, you'll find that he describes the same follies that most people engage in nowadays, there is no such thing as the good ol' days.

edit: I'm not saying that you are blaming the things you mention in your OP on a conspiracy, it's just that's what I hear a lot from people I know, to me if we(all of us) are responsible humans then the world would be a better place, but we're not.
