Old Paradigm Needs To Go

It boggles the mind how so many people don't pay attention to the way things have been done on this planet since as long as I can remember. What made me think of this was after reading about the President's current home, the white house. How do we justify this elaborate quarters for one family while so many are homeless and starving?

Granted everyone is caught up in getting ahead themselves or just hanging on to what they have but if we take pause a moment, we can see just how far things have gone totally out of whack. And this is just how it is planned. By keeping everyone on the treadmill, that doesn't allow time to consider the total screwing that most everyone is receiving.

Maybe that's a good part of the rest of the economic crash that is heading our way in the next few months. It will serve as a wake up call for people to take time to take another look at this whole mess we have allowed to be developed. As young people, I'm sure a lot of you took a look at the world and wanted to do something about it. But that was before you were totally committed to the rat race that tends to consume lives and changes those idealistic ideas.

I don't suggest any sort of violent actions to combat the old paradigm, although that will most assuredly be participated in by some. I prefer to support local commerce and not participate as much as possible in actions that support the old ways. Of course those that benefit most from business as usual will not give up easily. Every trick in the bag can be expected to be pulled out in order to keep things as they are.

Most will be taken in by all of this as has always been the case and this may enable the controllers to continue the fleecing for a while longer. This will only add to the suffering of many and a lot of lives to be lost just as planned. But there is still a vast majority of people who refuse to look at the facts. It will take the coming calamities to convince them. Too bad: if more would open their eyes, maybe some of it would not be necessary.
