    Ahhhh... the 'simple life' we yearn for.
    Well, not everyone. But many of us have this illusion about the 'good old days' and wish that we could escape the chaos of modern life.

    And with good reason. It kind of sucks.

    But we are here, now, and there is no way to overcome what we face except to meet it head on.

    And I always thought Machiavelli was a cynic, now I find out he was a satirist...

    Balance of opposing forces is effective, but in modernity Commerce has massively overstepped its bounds. That's why we are going all to poopoo. If it isn't commerce, then its the military, if it isn't the military then it is political parties...doesn't anyone have any sense? It is almost as though we live not in a rational systematic world, but more like we are living the microcosms of life as a macrocosm where only the most outrageous aspects gain attention. Attention that is much needed for guidance and direction. We are out of control because we as a species do not have a sense of value beyond our next meal and the apparent fear that it will not be there when we want it. We truly are an ignorant species...

    I am slowly learning not to be the people pleaser type.

    Why do we Care? What are Values? Where do they come from?

    I love "The Starry Starry Night" Man!
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)
