Hard Talking

The previous posts were actually intended as part of a series.....it was just aimed at having a bit of fun at everyone's expense, mine included.....but then things have this habit of being insanely silly at times....the way you intend them to be is rarely the way things are.....and I don't think I will complete that series.....

A conversation last night made me realize just how different reality is from the way we would like things to be.....we'd so like to believe that we live in a civilized world; a world where education and, like it or not, monetary well-being, have inculcated in us an open culture, a sense of respect for other individuals and their beings.....

We like to dream that the society we are a part of has progressed and has reached the stage where it is only the lower classes, the "lesser mortals" who indulge in a certian type of lifestyle.....and that all is well with our own surroundings.....

Sad, so bloody sad......you would think that exposure to a "liberated" society would open the eyes of people, that living in a developed place would liberate their thought processes......surprising at times, how events can have a reaction that is completely the opposite of what you may expect....

You are right, but his society was not created for the well being... The person considered in the "top" cause jealousy in the others, can´t let go of money and have things that don´t use, just for status - it is inverted.

Although an utopic society is composed by utopic beings...

The problem is that a society based on corruption that is for so long around is hard to be converted to a better thing..

Well..just ideas... good point of yours.

we are the society,we made it for our own use,sometimes distorting it too only for selfish purpose...what u said is very true...

True Tyler, about jealousy.....but I accept that as a part of life. It is the blatant misuse of a power that is not yours that saddens me.

At times you are bestowed with something that seems like power, when actually it is just an advantage that the circumstances have gifted you. If you choose to abuse it and that too against a person you should rather be helping, that's bad, particularly when you might be ruining that person for life, just because that person is trying to do the right thing....

hmmm....But what is the right thing that person is trying to do?
