How Society Crumbles. The Modern Version. Now Playing.

I keep getting this ominous feeling that the fragile, butthurt psyche of this generation will swiftly bring about the self-destruction of Western civilization. We have all the knowledge from the whole of human existence yet wisdom is nearly extinct. Two of the key ingredients of wisdom are time (patience) and struggles, or at the very least, inconveniences, neither of which we can tolerate nowadays. Y’all know I’m not a pessimist. I’m a realistic optimist. If the car’s going over cliff, the pessimist gives up hope and goes over, the optimist holds up hope for a flying car and also goes over, the realist jumps.

I believe the increase in social unrest, unhappiness, and even suicides are symptoms pointing to this problem.  But again, people are too fragile and butthurt, like 3 year old children, that they are unwilling to put themselves through the necessary changes to experience true happiness.

Just calling it as I see it. There’s lots we need to be proactively doing instead of just going along over the edge. There’s no sideline. We’re all in this together.
