Then at a individual level, you have people who are friends, but not really. You know the kind who give great advice in one area but are completely unreliable in every other possible situation. No, you know that's not most upsetting. Most upsetting is becoming attached to people like this, accepting them for who they are, and then watching them turn the corner and completely disappear from your life. Yeah, I *totally* love these types of friendships. The total commitment to sympathize with a friend and support she or him in whatever they do is a very abstract concept to a lot of people. Seriously, who wants to commit to be there for someone who is there for you. Unheard of!
Then there's the people who are right no matter what. Don't fuck with them, it's not worth it.
What happened to responsibility? Integrity? Duty? Refraining from adding suffering to someone who is already suffering is negligible if there is profit involved. Encouraging for people to understand each other is redundant if we want to breed competitive monsters. How else are we going to supply the Consumer's supply and demand?
Is it then, also unheard of to commit to an idea, a movement, a chance of change because of personal responsibility? If we only care for consuming the latest fashions, or splurging for the latest gadget, then how are we going to assume a incredibly small sense of responsibility for the welfare of others. Or, is that really not appropriate in this modern time?
Everyone hold hands now, we're going to dive into the lava. No, no, marketing insists it's not lava, but we know it's lava and we're jumping in.
The whole world is comprised of faulty systems that create short term solutions to continuous problems.
Modern Life is business. Create a problem to solve, only to marginally solve it, thus creating more problems and more solutions that do not solve anything. Finally, wind up with an infrastructure of constant demand for profit. Necessity is the mother of invention, but right now necessity is being misplaced by those in power.
Now, wouldn't solving THE problem completely be the responsible thing to do?
