We live in a time when industry, ie money, has created answers to situations we should manage ourselves. We have nursery schools to nursing homes...we want babies and we want to live longer. And yet no one wants the responsibilities that come.
We have been groomed to look away from ourselves justifying and encouraging self interest, self indulgence and the me, me, me.
Life is not easy, pretty or a joy ride. One makes sacrifices. One cares...and people adjust. Only infantile, selfish behavior warrants the self indulgence of seeking others to remove our responsibilities.
Ultimately all society suffers from the actual costs that come from this commercial mind set. You work more to make more money to pay more people who are working more to....and on it goes.
There is no quality of life here. There are no llife lessons. There is no personal growth. It is greed, artificial and ultimately most unsatisfactory.
Care for one another, live with one another, do for one another and celebrate your humanity...bingo and glitter are no answers.
