Have we finally reached a point where we have become idiotic in this western culture ? What's next , I want custody of our dreams , idea's , future plans , I mean , who gets the dog food America has finally evolved to complete idiocy .
@ Ahorseback, As I have said before, there are people who are REALLY GONE......I have encountered them. Un$%^#@believable. I have never seen people who can't, don't, and/or won't understand simple mathematical, inductive, and deductive logic. They exist in their own bizarre universe where everything good like ambition, success, wealth, education, and all the good and decent things in life are reviled while conversely, everything detrimental like laziness, dependence, floundering, being poor/impoverished, living on the socioeconomic dole, not giving a good --------------, and generally adopting a negative, don't care, rescue me, victimology philosophy are glorified, even deified.
We live in a society when there is such derision regarding socioeconomic and educational betterment of oneself. When one rightfully criticize people for making poor/negative/stupid decisions without thinking about the ramifications of their stupid and inane actions upon themselves and their families, one is verbally lynched as heartless by these same inanely, clueless people. Well I say to such people, ")(*&&#$%!" It seems that people are drinking THAT koolaid or using something STRONGER, MUCH STRONGER if you catch my drift. Insanity is sanity while sanity is insanity. It is what the late Dr. Hawkins, a psychiatrist and spiritualist, called the Luciferian inference.
We have gone to the realm of sub-idiocy if you ask me, Ahorseback.
Let us say that the inmates are running the asylum and it isn't pretty at all. Dante's Inferno seems quite tame, even heavenly in comparison to the insane events and actions of the world today. This society and culture in some ways have gone completely amok. What are people "thinking"? I really refuse to fathom the insane mind.
I think it is the influence of radio, TV, internet. We humans don't really know how to handle technology. (… why some are taking a reality show host seriously for President.) Now they say people will be living virtual realities completely. Technology will become even more exciting/stimulating, pervasive in our lives. We need to embrace it! love it! It is the future!
