    This world seems to be getting worse. It's faster, more aggressive, over populated, under nourished, under resourced and now we're even bombing the moon!

    "When will it end?" I hear you cry.

    2012 according to some sources... don't ask, it's the Mayans or something...

    Do we need to harken back to olden times to find more peaceful (repressive - sorry, had to cough) ways of conducting ourselves? Maybe we should look into our history and revel in the mists of romance when there were no wars, no exploitation of innocents; when all were employed and fed and we just burned our resources because they grew on trees (poetic license applied).

    Maybe we should look to the future and dream of the days when our politicians and commercial leaders start telling us the truth and feeding back into society some of our hard earned money. We should look forward to times when we finally get a grip and stop decriminalising criminals; stop having so damned many babies; stop bombing each other and raping our planet of every known resource just so we can continue to inflict as much hatred. stress and aggression on each other as possible, like what the way we do and all that...

    Or, maybe we should stop and think. Somebody once said to me that there is a fine line between genius and insanity, well let's look at the evidence of genius in our world...

    Hmmmm, think I'll try insanity for a while.

      Actually, although you appear to be getting a pretty hard time here after your post, I reckon you make some very valid points, (especially in the latter half of your post), and perhaps your original post wasn't read through or considered thoroughly by those that posted sarcastic comments against it.

      A quality hub might well be the answer!

    Genius only appears to be insanity to those who laugh at genius

    I'm so glad that you don't know what you're talking about... For a minute I thought I understood what you were talking about!


    @ Madame X "Genius only appears to be insanity to those who laugh at genius"

    Yep.. And people with a lesser ability always take the soft option lol

      Hi PearlDiver!  How are you?  It's been a while since we've chatted and I thought I'd take this opportunity to hubbusinteruptus and chat for a bit!

    I keep looking for the upside to it. Fruitless pursuit thus far.

    Being sane is so over rated I like insane thank you lol and why not make it a hub? that would be the smarter route to go

      This is my first day on this website, I'm not sure I know what a hub is???  I thought you had to be extremely lengthy and exact with them?

    I have my moments when my chaotic mind becomes disillusioned big_smile

    Crazdwriter is right-sanity is way over rated-besides that who is to be the judge of saying who is or is not sane? Trying to classify anyone at any particular moment could be viewed as insanity all by itself..

    When were the days when "politicians and commercial leaders" told us the truth? I'm old, and I don't remember that.

      I am using poetic license, it is sarcasm to draw attention to the fact that people harken to the past saying they were better days but in reality they were just the same.

    It's a crazy world in the land of the insane. Or do double clich├ęs cancel each other out? Meaning it's a sane world in the land of the crazy?

    Sane actually means healthy in latin languages. In which case, no, I'm not insane. Maybe it's a fad to say you're insane.

    I'm boringly sane, and it "ain't" a lot of fun (and no matter how much the world seems to be driving me crazy, I just can't seem to get there - where the flying elephants are pink and there's no such thing a "bad hair day").                             lol

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results.  hmmm...
