Greed and Responsibility (lack) – Problems facing the United States of America and those that call her home.
Wise choice words to describe the problem that faces the country.
“As long as people put their greeds before their needs, we will always have a society with a minority that thrives on the abasement of the majority.”
In these words, the intention is not to place the blame on one individual, nor is it to say that people in this world should be made to pay -Taxes- in order to help one another. Nay. It should be a choice for the betterment of mankind and for the perpetuation of individual goodness (Virtue) that each of us have in us. When we stop trying to force others to bend to our whim, when we stop trying to “elect” people that help us or help the “greater good” then, and only then, will we be in a better place.The problem is the direction of the people within the country not the actual parties that run the country. See, we put them there, and are now shocked at the outcome of “their” actions. You are surprised by a “Government Shut down”? Really? A few weeks ago everyone was fussing about “Furloughs” that were caused by the same exact problem. The government is looking for ways to save, and clearly that is at the expense of quality and quantity of work, as well as efficiency and value. And you are surprised? Soon there will be other issues too. Get prepared because anyone that cannot see it are blind to facts. Economy in collapse, Stock market and real-estate market will fail, your money will be nearly worthless, and to top it all off people will still lookup to Miley Cyrus, Kanye, and Lil’ Wayne. We are the problem if we have let a group of men/ women in two parties, chose for the rest of us. They have two different methods of influence in order to control people and meet the exact same end goal. More power and influence.
So, yes, everyone is to blame and responsible. All of Us.
I live in a country that more people would sooner steal from your pockets (taxes) for “wellfare” and “gun control” and “war” sooner than they would whip out their own wallets to help, or even spend time on social problems and health related community issues.
Sad. Instead of complaining about a government shut down, I will give you a few things you could do instead:
1. Go volunteer your time or money
2. Go to the park
3. Go plant in your outdoor space
4. Go for a walk
5. Meet up with some friends
6. Start a Business
7. Move somewhere or take a trip
8. Go have a beer, smoke a joint, or kiss your loved one – (Do whatever the fuck you think makes you happy)
9. Find someone on the street and feed them.
10. Any else but complain about the country and the problems we face, and actually do something.
So I say, Peace be with you and
