In this section we're
going to focus on what matters in our culture. The way
things are going in the United States I was tempted to
call this section 'pop culture' rather than society
because it sometimes seems to me that we've stopped
functioning as a society. Why would I think that?
Have you noticed the
types of stories that make the news these days? I'm
talking about lead-story, front page stuff. Is Brittany's
latest boyfriend really all that important? And how
about TV shows like Dancing With the Stars and American
Idol? Is it really necessary for Websites and major news
outlets to keep America up to date on the contenders for
I'm often concerned
with why people are so often more interested in
entertainment over what might be happening at their own
PTA. And I also wonder why more people don't take the
time to actually look at what their elected
representatives in Washington are up to. There was once
a time in this country when the folks elected to
congress and the senate actually read and studied
legislation before voting on it.
In what appears to be
the age of deception from both the blue and the red
sides of the isle, it's no longer enough to just vote.
It's no necessary to keep track of the people you've
voted for and hold them accountable. But I wonder if I'm
in the minority thinking this.
Watching society or pop
culture or whatever you care to call the activities of
our population can be amusing. It's interesting to note
that history continues to repeat. Trends are not only
trackable but predictable as well. Through history boom
periods have inevitably been followed by recessions.
These are the cycles of economics.
But these days we here
that certain enterprises are too big to fail. So our
government takes taxpayer money and gives it to the big
banks that literally have the rights to make up the
rules as they go. And still they come up short?
And if that's not bad
enough, the men and women who ran these financial
institutions into insolvency receive 'performance'
bonuses. Does anyone else have a problem for rewarding
failure with millions of dollars from the taxpayers?
Aside from politics and
finance we'll be looking at the ways people cope with
the world as they find it. The term social anxiety has
become more popular lately. I think the affliction
called social anxiety is little more than folks feeling
weird because they aren't able to emulate their favorite
celebrity or athlete. Or perhaps they've bought into the
nonsense dished out by the advertising arms of corporate
America and feel inadequate because they don't have
pearly white teeth and the latest digital gadget. Oh,
what a world.
Sometimes I think we
could simplify life pretty easily. And if the majority
of us made a practice of what I'm about to outline our
society would let out a sigh of relief that would be
heard all over the planet. This is a simple premise that
is spiritual in nature. It transcends virtually every
faith know and it works. If everyone understood and
acknowledged and observed this principle we'd be one
happy race of people. Here's the nugget. We need to all
understand that whatever you do, you do to yourself.
That truth happens to
be a slight variation on the Golden Rule, though it's
much more direct. Whether we see it clearly or not, the
Universe must eventually find balance. So when you
realize that your actions come back to you in like kind
you you should also realize that if you want good, you
need to be about good. Think about it. It's the very
first truth realized as far back as civilization goes.
And still we have people trying to get around it.
Okay, enough. I've
touched upon several prominent issues and promise to
return to them and more in future writings. Keep coming
