The old adage is that we can learn from our past; that the mistakes we made earlier leave with us a lesson to not go that route next time. Well, some of us anyway, can see that is a falsity. Actually, it is not mistakes that we are concerned with today – it is repetition. We are locked into a system that leaves us with no choices but to do the same things over and over. What is the saying about expectation – a definition about craziness; “doing the same thing over and over and expecting a change?” Change is happening though, it is just that we cannot adapt to it – we have these rules you know. We must admit that most of us do not like to change unless we initiate it, or there is some advantage too great to dismiss. Yet, the changes referred to, and what should be obvious to all, are changes that unless addressed, will be our collective downfall.
A prime example is the city of Detroit. During the early stages of our own industrial revolution, our black populations became “unnecessary” because of the cotton gin machine. Many migrated to the cities of the north, including Detroit. And now here in 2014, the final stage of this change has again made them unnecessary because of technological advances that put humans on the wayside. Of course, this is happening all over our nation and Canada and even Mexico, and not only to our black population. As illustrated in Detroit, money supersedes everything and if people can’t pay their water bill, well then, by the rules we just “turn of their water supply.”
I don’t know about you folks reading this, but I would like to know, in this so successful, so superb, so advanced country we like to keep telling ourselves about – we now need perpetual waste and perpetual war to keep our present obnoxious lifestyles – how have we come to this?
Take a tour through our website. See for yourselves that we do have a way to adapt to the changes that are plowing into our lives with increasing impact. We no longer have a choice, but we do have a chance — one last chance.
