Yup! Right on target, Shannon! People hate to change ANYTHING about their lives. Especially in Western cultures. It's all about feeling good in the moment and the hell with anything or anybody else. They don't have enough to eat? Not my problem. They can't afford a house? Not my problem. They can't afford to get treated for an illness? Not my problem. And let's not even talk about education! They went to college, took all those courses about how to teach kids. So what!~ These are MY kids and they aren't teaching them what I want them to know and they're teaching about stuff I don't want them to know. Doesn't matter what's best for our society and other people. Me, me, me, mine.
It's a sorry state of affairs. This article only hits on one small facet of them but it does it very well. Thanks for that!
