How many problems do you see when you look at society around you? Does the society you are being sold exist in reality? Or is it a disconnected dream towards the so-called "Perfect World". Are the prizes in this dream even accessible or do they fall into the "some day" category. No matter what dreams you may strive to, the same system can also sell you a tailored list of why those dreams are under threat.
So much airtime, bandwidth, column space, billboards and snail mail devoted to telling you exactly what the problems are. Regardless of your personal beliefs or convictions. There is plenty to go around, by design. Compartmentalization is a modern art form, keeping polar opposites locked in battle over.... nothing. The names change in the current edition of the same old wedge issue, but the rhetoric never does. And it takes its course. And nothing changes.
For all the connectivity speed of light global reach that happens, why do the same problems never go away? And why are the bigger systemic institutional problems hardly ever mentioned? Maybe it's because you are surrounded by Distraction Central.
