So I've been thinking a lot about freedom lately... I think what started it all, was that I got interested in politics a few years back and started trying to understand the whole process. Several years later and many years more experienced, I have become pretty disillusioned with the whole thing. I'm not sure if I could name one politician that is in the game for the good of humanity. The greatest tragedy of all is that while they claim to support 'Freedom of the People', they don't believe people should be trusted to exercise their own judgement.
If you are anything like me, that statement may not be sitting well right now, but let me clarify. I think every human being is basically good. The problem comes when 1 person tries to exercise control over another. Think of any example, either current, or historical, and look for one person trying to control another person, or in most cases a whole group of people. If you find one that doesn't fit this paradigm, let me know because I haven't found one yet.
I went on a spiritual journey last year, with a very good friend. While I definitely haven't arrived at my destination, nor do I think the journey will ever be complete, I have seen a number of things that lead me to believe that things are very, very wrong with our society.
I'd like to keep this blog up beat, while at the same time tackling many of the social problems we face as a civilization and brainstorming possible solutions. I don't think anyone has all the answers, but those of us that pursue a path to find honesty and truth will find many of the answers hidden in plain sight.
Let me know if you would like to join me on this journey, and what kinds of things concern you about where the world is headed.
The only rule is openess and honesty, we won't be held down by traditional views, whether religeous, political, cultural or otherwise. Obviously none of those working right now anyway!
