When you take a moment to look around at the world, things can seem pretty messed up.Try watching the 6 o’clock news, for instance.
. Chances are, the entire time, all you are going to see are stories of war, conflict, death, illness, etc. While this is clearly part of mainstream media’s content strategy — to sell drama and keep people focused on it — it also reveals something important about the current state of our world. I believe Michael Ellner sums it up best in the following quote: “Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.” Now obviously Ellner’s quote is a simplified way of looking at our current state, but in many ways it’s bang on. Most of what we do in the name of “good” ends up destroying something else in the process and is justified by the all-important profit margin. We’ve seen over and over again how our ways have brought us to a point where we are destroying everything in our path, so the question must be asked, isn’t it time for change? Are we fully capable, honest, and determined enough to look at our past, to see where our actions and thought patterns have led us, and now do something completely different in order to restore balance?
