it has occurred to me that america seems to be imploding. the crux of it is- we have no one to blame but ourselves. that's a sobering thought isn't it? most of us live our lives with the feeling that everything is going to work out just fine- because we have been indoctrinated to think so. our civil liberties have been stolen and eroded- and that's the tip of the iceberg (a rapidly melting one)
the reality is- america is at war- with herself.
we have battling ideologies for the fate of our country- right vs. left and corruption everywhere- but reality is- it won't matter in the grander scheme of things. i am a realist and that is usually a drag- to myself and to others. the bottom line is this:
we are destroying our planet. some folks in the world are working to change this and most are not. the bitch of it is- we all share the same fate. not looking good. famine, drought, water shortages, coastline disappearance, war, poverty- that's our future unless we get our panties in gear and make changes here. big corporate is not on board- so...
america is screwed. the fact is- we don't have enough educated people in the right fields to be competitive in a global economy. the folks we have at the top use sound bites and rhetoric to soothe us while america goes up in flames- but hey, they all have jobs right? the truth is- in economic circles there is the clarion call that there is another big depression coming. greenspan tip toed around it and called it a big 'recession' in february and then bernanke came out and said everything is coming up roses. uh huh. i already have 50 acres of swampland thanks.
the sad part is- it's the whole human race that is destroying itself. i hope it isn't in my lifetime. i hope that this country- who has always been a leader and started trends- can help stem the tide. in time. forewarned is forearmed- and knowledge is power. we can stop them. we can turn things around. we have to do it as the human race though- and that means overcoming regions and religions. the question is not can we- it is will we?
