One question the people who I live with, grew up with and the other few people I talk with ask is, “Don’t you get depressed, constantly looking at all the bad stuff that’s going on?”. They get tired of me talking about the reality of things. I understand. I can hardly talk about anything else. To me, not-reality is not interesting.
I guess a lot of people don’t want to know what’s going on. They want to be lied to and live in some comfortable land of pretend.
Everyday I see people offering and accepting pretend solutions. Pretend solutions are what we get when we pretend that a society, an economy, a government and so on, is something it’s not. If we can look squarely at the truth, the facts, and never ever waver, we get solutions.
