Anyone can complain, I want solutions.

Anyone can argue that what is taking place in the United States government is sickening on many accounts. Increased militarization of our TAX funded police officers. Ongoing disputes oversees in Iraq and Israel about the war on oil. Things are starting to progress from the 2008 stock crash, however nothing quite feels the same since…
Truth be told, there are a lot of fucking problems facing the every day American… Our wages are still hovering at a low percentage of what we could be making. The price of food keeps going up…
Anyone can complain… but I want to hear what you have to say. Any issue, doesn’t matter. I want to hear the solutions because continuing to think so negatively will only beget more negativity.
What do Americans need to wake up from? What toxicities do we need to rid ourselves of as a society? What ideologies do we need to toss out, possibly reform? What do you think would restore “peace” as it were?

climate change – cannabis legalization – and eradicating feminism

Well, I think America as a society needs to wake up from the default settings and paradigms that have been ingrained/programmed into our beings from an early age. We’ve been shaped into exactly what “they” want us to be, and we act how “they” think we should act. In the chaos of this reform in which we’re modeled into the perfect little citizens who fit perfectly into this “sugarcoated society of no wrongs”, we lose ourselves, forgetting who we really are and what really matters. The solution, I believe, is very simple – meditation. Through this practice of stilling the mind we become more conscious, giving us more awareness of our choices and our lives. Any conscious individual will conclude that this is not the way things should be, and actively work on bringing about a changes.

Aside from that, there’s the problem ignorance which can be solved by people becoming as educated as they can on as MUCH as they can so they’re not misinformed, or mislead.

Idk. I know a lot of people will probably bash me as ignorant over this, but I found that the best solution is just to ignore politics entirely. I only like to take in information that is actionable and affects my life directly. When I used to look at politics, all it would do is make me angry, but I knew I couldn’t do anything about it, which only made me angrier. I’d rather just put my passion into doing something I want to do instead.
