We can't believe anything we see or hear anymore. Centuries ago, there was a man named Jeremiah, a prophet who warned of great disasters to come. He was considered mad. Maybe he was. But he was right. With modern technology coinciding with a crash in human values on a vast scale, has anyone noticed, we are in really big trouble ? We are on the edge.
While so many people on earth struggle for fresh drinking water and poor children still die of curable diseases, the people who control the world's finances and governments invest billions of dollars in the exploration of distant planets and experiment with ever-more-ominous particle accelerators beneath this very earth - the only planet on which we are able to live.
While hungry families seek affordable housing, CEO's and their government friends bask on tropical beaches with their assortment of prostitutes, and no longer does the general public find it offensive. It is out in the open in the media every day. Anyone who dares to question is quickly tagged a religious fanatic, a relic of ancient days.
It is the Twenty-First Century. The general character of human beings has not changed. It is in our nature to fight to survive. But this nature has gone berserk. People want more and more, bigger and bigger, faster and faster. We are on a roller-coaster that is close to being out of our control.
With the advances in science and technology, it is now possible for those who hold power to commit greater and greater atrocities against life itself. And with the moment to moment acceleration in technology, the dangers are growing exponentially.
We can not believe anything we see or hear anymore. With modern technology, anything pertaining to our senses may be convincingly reproduced or represented. Lies are the norm today. Just turn on your television and watch the commercials and the politicians.
Justice is available only to those who can afford to pay for it.
One does not have to be a follower of any religion to see the truth. It is blatantly obvious to any rational person who chooses to take an interest.
We are in big trouble, but - who cares ?
