Ain’t about shit

About shit I am not. Not really, not in recent times. Reading, watching, pondering, reacting, then going back to thinking. Watching the wheels go ’round and ’round. Contributing to the problems in my own ways.

Recognizing we’re not alone in this actually probably makes us all the more lazier about becoming more active. We’re in good company, especially in the blogosphere and on youtube. So much to explore online. A whole new world within a world.

And if the situation is dire albeit unlikely to be radically changed, then where does one go? Inside and to one another if possible. Can’t reach people across the planet though our militaries can, sadly enough. Don’t want to fund so much bullshit, but I also don’t wish to be imprisoned. Quite the conundrum.

Sometimes I wonder if what comes across as apathy sometimes isn’t moreso a reflection of powerlessness. You care, but what can you do? Chip at one small area, and then what? We wind up ushered along regardless, which activism of the mid-to-late 20th century in the U.S. clearly demonstrated. Lots of active people back then speaking up and resisting, and they were ground down. Younger generations are more interested in lobbying for group-specific perks. What does one do with that?

Where do you go in today’s world when there’s this big of a disconnect? What could have an appreciable impact in these times? I don’t rightly know, but it’s high-time we start thinking outside of the box. Undoubtedly our individualism can prove valuable in this period if we can figure out how better to guide our own lives.

Life’s a puzzle. I don’t claim to have any answers, mostly just a bunch of questions.

    there’s a time in life when it’s ok to play/be Don Quixote. then there comes the time to play/be Sancho Panza. after that, it’s imho wiser to be the spectator/reader.

      Hi John,

      Your comment prompted me to look a little into info on that story. Never read it, and have a stack of books several feet high I’m supposed to be getting to already. lol So I perused notes on it for kicks.

      Anyway, I won’t ever claim to be making the wise decision. lol But I am drawn toward the observer role, most definitely. So much to take in…
