Dream On Sweet Rebel

I'm serious. Enough of this society, I'm just not interested. I'd point out the flaws but we all have our own pet favorites. I sometimes wonder if people, in the days of old, where a little more determined then the placid civilians that populate the planet.

Why are people these days so willing to accept the rigid structure this wholesale society throws at us? My theory is that we're all so accustomed to this setup, the corporate cycle- the poverty cycle- the life and death cycle... it's all much of a muchness and most would rather accept half baked dreams of desk success then live a life worth living. We trade dreams for dollars in the western world, and what nice houses we have. Corporations thrive on creating this mindset in their employees.

Is it too late for a real rebellion? Have the 7 billion of us grown so lazy as to ignore the very issues we continue to chime on about. You know what I'm talking about; you have your own issues in mind.

Sadly, I don't know how to stop giving in to the BS. The system doesn't seem to change when I fight it, I just become more exausted. Nobody around me feels the same way, so I'm alone, and that's not a great place to be. Normally I just comply to the rules and make sure to make others pay for it later.

They aren't talking much about it but the problem that initiated it was largely the increase in living costs. The western world will face some similar problems... we are right now, the question is; can a revolution feed the people? (Me thinks no.)

I think you are right why do we put up with this BS??!! I mean really people!
