I forgot this scene ever existed. There is so much beauty in the world, but when looked at closely, there are some places of evil and despair. I do not know where those places all are or how to distinguish them from each other. In keeping with systems thinking, it is right to get angry over the way things are, but also important to keep calm and carry on. This is the way things have been done for thousands of years. We often forget that most of time and the rest of the world do not experience the same sensation of life as we do. Suburbia, sure it has spread to parts of Europe and other rich parts of the world. Look a little closer and you’ll see that the majority live in squalor with no guarantee for safety and/or happiness. Even in America, there is a great concern over our continued loss of freedom whether from debt to control and laws. Hunter S. Thompson would have a lot to say if he were here in his prime. His time is over though and we need to accept that. We’ll never forget the past, but it is better to learn from the past and not repeat mistakes than know and be the past, but continue to mess everything up. If you “look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark — that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.”
