the collective interests of American define the actions of the country. the collective interests of the people are determined by how they grow up. The loop is based in capitalist assumptions and reinforced by the American Dream. The country is a game determined by a college of corporations. Every single one of your lives is a product of the system that created it. the system doesn’t care if you are happy – it wants to make money off you. That is what is wrong with the world: every American grows up in bullshit-corporate-dreamland.
Why do you think people shoot up colleges every month? it isn’t terrorism folks, you’ve been lied to – so well, I fact, I doubt how many of you will truly understand what I’m talking about.
Change is impossible. capitalism has gone global, The apocalypse is a foregone conclusion. UNLESS YOU ALL WAKE UP NOW.
@collectiveloop, Shit happens all the time, we go through stages in history, and we as a people will find our way out of it just like we found our way out of the disco era. That didn’t last too long now did it. Everyone is aware of the problem I am fairly sure of this, or have some sort of grasp that we are not balanced. Just keep having hope and helping people out around you. The education system is partially , or fully to blame in my opinion for the faults of the inspiration sent into the younger peoples heads. It’s a competitive world. Just remain calm and remember that you can open peoples eyes just like you did your own. By just engaging in conversations and ideas. Be ready for anything.
@cristinelizabeth, Are you trying to compare the violence of every civilization in history for the last 10,000 years as a ‘fad’? Talk about down playing an issue. Regardless, you’re right. Everything does occur in cycles. But the cycle that OP is talking about is one that we have never gotten out of, at least on a global scale. He’s right. People need to wake the fuck up, or we are doomed to repeat this bull shit for another 10,000 years.
@drakonerythros, Lol not necessarily a fad, but I was trying to make a comparison yes. I know how fucked things are, but the more we chitter chatter about it the more it just keeps happening. We don’t know how to get out of it , we don’t know the answers, so we find the answers in ourselves how to make each day our own and not under this system we think we are doomed under.
@cristinelizabeth, Truth. Nicely put. I think the reason why more people don’t care about what is happening around them is because they don’t have a solution, but you don’t necessarily need one. I think the fundamental issue is that people think happiness is a six figure salary and a house in the burbs. But it’s really just the happiness that has been defined for us, rather than defined by the individual.
@drakonerythros, I think we underestimate ourselves is the problem. our confidence as citizens is tore down by feeling guilty for eating fast food, or needing to look this certain way. We are all too harsh on ourselves, we need to find all of our true identities and how we can contribute to the world not just the country. Even on our planet we’re all on different levels of development, the American development has just gone too far with trying to be the cool country of the world , and everyone all wrapped up in being this awesome person with an awesome house , we aren’t looking out for our neighbors. We find value in materials. Because that is what is being thrown at us, to make us feel valuable. If we don’t feel valuable or worth the human race to contribute anything then we commit social suicide and just become another skeleton.
