This is something that needs to be studied very closely in this day and age, and something which I am going to be thinking about and discussing here on the site.
It is about the future and the present, and the state of the United States at this time. Our country, as I do very much consider myself an American, is changing. Now, this is not necessarily good or bad, as such a perspective can only be reserved for those who have all the facts – and that falls into two parties, the dead or those reading this from a point in the future. The fact is, our world is quickly changing and the ideas we were given before to navigate our world are almost as quickly becoming outdated.
What is interesting to note is how these changes are taking shape in our economy. There is a lot to be concerned about – rising gas costs, rising food costs as a result, the percentage of your pay that is taken by the government and the very little return on your investment you get with your tax money. The devaluing of the dollar – or is it simply a market correction? You would be made to believe that the U.S. is a third world country, without any worthy exports and industry of any kind. That the American people are lazy and do nothing productive.
I would argue that is our current government, as it has become bloated with all the tax dollars that are a guaranteed yield. But not the people which are being governed. Strangely, everyone is too busy to notice what is going on.
Yet, I can’t help but wonder. Today, there was a power outage in south Florida that resulted in a loss of power for many residents here across the southern tip of Florida – some 4.4 million FPL consumers. I say consumer as if we have a choice, which we obviously don’t. This got me thinking, how prepared am I and my loved ones to deal with a crisis like that? What would we do next in a political, economic or ecological meltdown to survive?
Then there is something else. Are we being conditioned? Are we being bombarded with psychological stimuli that are meant to put us in a near constant state of anxiety to shape us into a more docile and needy public? Set up to be easily controlled? If such a task were being employed, it would have to be a multi-generational plan. Starting to sound like a conspiracy? Well, let’s not quite go that far. Take a look at this, however – just found it interesting.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kieyjfZDUIc]
