I Think Society Is On the Downward Spiral

    Yar Think

    Though I do have enough faith in humanity, to be positive there are a lot of people out there who are willing to help another along the way. It really is the only solution..... not governments, police or welfare ! We need to remember that we are all on this journey through life...

    Oh The Humanity!

    So I've been thinking a lot these days about humanoids; you know, mankind and our current state of being-alive-ism. And hey, don't laugh, being-alive-ism is so totally a real word, even if I just made it one! Thing is, I was pondering the other night, what the hell is wrong...

    We Are Not Who We Used to Be

    We are not the enlightened and all-inclusive society some people claim we are.  Far from it.  We try desperately to control one another but have a dire lack of self control.  We live in a society supposedly advanced, but has so little control over its darkness...

    How Far Down

    It isn't difficult for anyone to see how our society has changed.  In some ways it has changed for the better but for the most part I see where it has changed for the worse.  There is more bad than ever in our world.  Yet, many continue to say we need to progress...
