Some of these statistics in this article are staggering. Its sad for me. I sometimes "joke" about what type of cat food I will be able to afford, and how at first I may be able to afford Fancy Feast, but may end up with a no name brand dry food. The problem is, is that the fear is there that this "joke" may pass into a reality for me as it has for so many in society.
I have stated before on just how much I love my wife. She has brought some form of stability to me because of that love. She never forced me to change, but because of her, I did. Not for myself, but because of my love for her. She deserves my best. That being said, the love I feel for her, is also a kind of curse. I say this because, if it were not for this love, by now I think I may have gone "wild". As I think back, till the point I met her, I was on my way there. I wanted to leave this rat race behind, go into nature, and live in nature. If not for her, by now I'm pretty sure I would be there. I have alienated myself from all but one friend, and most of my family. I do not even look for potential friends, I look at people as acquaintances who come and go. Most are blind to the truth as to what is really happening. I cannot do this to her though. Even though I think this is the only way for saving what is left of my shattered sanity, she just does not see what I see. She cannot fathom what I see. I wonder if many can.
You say to have hope, when there is no hope to be had. History has proven this to us yet it seems that no one wants to see this. There is only one way I see for the human race to save itself, but this is something that will never happen. For shits and giggles, I will tell you, not that it will matter.
Some have had it almost right, but they did it wrong. Socialism is not an evil, it is the governments which turn it evil. With true global socialism, you would not even need governments, except for cases of natural disaster where you would need massive coordination to restore the people who were affected to the state they were before this act of nature.
I cannot stress enough, I am NOT talking about government controlled socialism. Government controlled socialism as all forms of government are subject to corruption and abuse as are ALL FORMS OF GOVERNMENT.
The only way for us to survive is INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTARY SOCIALISM.
Everyone would voluntarily give of themselves for the betterment of their "brother human-beings" because they care, not only for themselves, but for every human on this earth also. This I believe is the ONLY way. If you can see any other way, please tell me, because I just do not see it.
This society we have created are the haves, and the have nots. This is accepted, and you can see it on a local level as well as on a global scale.
Why is this? Why is this accepted as the way life should be? Can we not see that this is NOT WORKING? You can also see why I feel we are a lost cause. Without every human on earth working for the betterment of their fellow man, GREED, CORRUPTION, DESIRE FOR MORE THAN OTHERS, SELFISHNESS, AND DESTRUCTION WILL PREVAIL. This is the downfall of man. Once again I ask. Do you see any other way? If so, please tell me, because I do not.
As I write this, I keep having a flashback to something I seen on TV. The interviewer was talking to a rich family who had donated money for the Katrina relief. The woman whom was being interviewed made the statement along the lines of "These are people in need, If I have to cancel a manicure, or forgo a latte a day, well then that is a SACRIFICE I will have to make". I'm sorry people. I can only weep. I am ashamed of what the bulk of humanity has become. We have not earned the right to live on this planet which we have destroyed. Therefore, I have no hope.
If you choose to reply, please think about what I have written before you slam me and my crazy ideals into oblivion, and try to be gentle in the death of truth. I honestly see no other way, do you? If you do, then tell me. I am open to suggestions.
Oh, here is the article that got me onto yet another rant. My ideals may be radical even to the viewers of this site, but I thank you for allowing me to vent, even if it is off the wall.
