These days the media, along with commercialism are warping everything from poltical, and governmental systems to economical markets. Yea sure you can shrug, and act like it's still 1995, but my friend it is not. Big shootings at schools, kids being heavily bombarded with sex, drugs, and death in a way that would have catatonically white faced our parents back in those days. Bringing them to hide us in caves or some shit afraid of what america, and the world is becoming.
I first smoked at 8, I first saw death at 18, then 19 family wise. At 18 I dealt with my father almost dieing. Yet things like more war, wtc, bombings all over becoming more prevalent these kids today have to deal with not only seeing, and feeling mass death. But having it literally choke fed to their minds in school, at home, at friend's houses. People's moral decisions are changing. I remember watching nasa launches, and romeo & juliet at school.
huff gasoline. Big deal, I did drugs, and drank when I was 12 yea yea. But kids today at 10, and below bring drugs into school, kids below driving age bringing guns into school, parents lacking in support, and moral/ethical backing for their kids. In short their trying to control, not help, or suggest to their kids, having them fight more so then ever. The only difference isn't national news.
My eyes are wide open, awake, what about the other couple billion with minorities having sight. We have a problem. Humanity. Imo.
