Life., Musings

Dumbfounded.

This is our culture:
1. Our school busses don’t have seat belts.
2. Our seeds are genetically modified so much, they’ve lost their nutrients and our bodies reject them.
3. Our foods are full of preservatives and other food-imitating substances that give us diseases, but they taste just as good as the real stuff so the public doesn’t notice the difference.
4. Our every-day health products (shampoos, toothpastes) have chemicals in them that give us cancer.
5. Our modes of transportation pump chemicals into the air that give us diseases.
6. Our lifestyles are sedentary, which leads to diseases.
7. Our schools and public buildings don’t have disaster shelters, leaving people exposed to the fury of severe weather, terror acts, or worse.
8. Our adults carelessly leave harmful substances and weapons in the reach of children, right inside their homes, showing complete lack of pro-activity in mentorship of their young ones; perhaps because they weren’t taught, themselves.
9. Our publications feed us the “American Dream” propaganda, which has isolated us into suburbs, locked us into ladder-climbing jobs, robbed us of the joys of farming our own land for food, or making our own clothes, and has now trapped us into vulnerable position that has left us uneducated about the basics of living life; we are defenseless if ever a true depression or war were to hit home.
10. Our army is sent to other countries because their cultures are supposedly more destructive than ours, to keep them from killing their own people, even though we’re doing the same damn thing, only in a way that is legal: under the banner of free enterprise.
