    a friend mentioned this a few days ago and i keep thinking about it:

    is it trendy to hate the world and worldly ways now? alot of people do seem to down it and the way it's going right now, but historically, it's going the same as it always has.

    we live in the same kind of country our parents grew up in. it's still just as beautiful on this side as it is on any other side, right?

    we can all still go out into the sunshine, we can all go on hikes and return to nature...the distractions are what keep most people going, though.

    know anyone who can't be anywhere without a tv, a radio, a cell phone, something...anything to distract them from what is really going on? i think people are trying to wake up and they hate what they see, so they're going back to sleep with their comforters (cells, tv's, etc).

    i dunno, i say that there are problems, but there always have been, and we have to stop looking for problems before we can start to observe the truths of life.

    what do you think?

  5. It was always trendy to hate the world just like the world was always more or less the same.

    I believe that the only periods where people werent doing it so much where after big wars...people felt gratitude and desire for life.

    The line is always drawn on motivation though, if you get bothered about shit and that pushes you to try and find a better way to live and do things its totally cool in my book. If you just like to bitch you're worthless and so is the world to you.

    i think being a disgruntled self-destructive mess has always been kind of trendy, it's just that people are taking it too far into adulthood now. whatever, 98% of people are idiots, so who cares.

    agreed. useless scrubb is what you become. self serving. etc.

    alot of my point had to do with people using distractions instead of trying to see the real beauty in the world.

    yeah, people are taking it too far. teen angst has turned into 20-somethign angst. i often wonder why more people can't be less serious about things. i had a bad habit of wanting to be serious about everything, but i wasn't living...not really. i complained alot, and it really gets you nowhere. doing something, taking action, making yourself smile...that's a good part, and a good change.

    good thoughts ... i would like to think even as difficult as it would be people would like to see the human world evolve past these problems.

    the longer i think that ... the more it becomes a dream lost in a world of apathy.

    and nothing new there ... its just sad that the leaders of the world are so confused by worldly items and conquest of trivial things.

    The worst part to me is when you talk to a person who was an active idealist in their youth, and with the 9-5 and kids has lost sight of anything beyond their roof and their family. the world will not stop being what it is ... anything we do to ignore the problem only makes it worse.

    i was late to come to view the world in this way and i hope with that i will continue to hold this view till i die. However i told my girl if in my age i ever become republican you can kill me at once.

    can i get off this sinking ship ????

    didn't say that cells and laptops are bad. i just named them as distractions...i could have mentioned the car radio, dvd players in cars, video games, malls, clothing, etc, etc. i could go on and on.

    they are all useful, but they are all distractions people fool themselves into believing they have to have on, or they have to use all of the time. how many people do you know who can get into their car and leave their radio off, turn their cell off, and go for a nice country drive or a walk in the park?

    how many people do you see shopping at the grocery store and talking busily on their cell phones as if they are talking about smething important, you catch a little of what they're saying and it sounds like gossip? wtf?
