I Wonder

I wonder about our system which covets "private" enterprise because it creates "incentive" and "competition", yet gives billion dollar companies (not really something which needs a leg up in order to compete) hundreds of millions for Research and Development or to rebuild their infrastructure; now, refresh my memory, where did the incentive come from? And then we never have budget for social spending.
At the same time, said corporations, use extortion tactics such as threatening to move (or implied) upon the public in order to create "Choice". Hmmmmm makes me think, what is Choice?

I wonder how a country can seemingly borrow indefinite sums for War but not for the productivity and well being of its work force (note that I did not use citizens or people).

I wonder how the citizens of a "moral" society which wastes 27% of its food can have the audacity to blame Over-Population for the tens of thousands of deaths which occur daily all through the simply fact of not having funds for life.

I wonder how any parent can think that simply "succeeding" in today's world (even if it means no real thought) is enough for their children. I realize they are backed by schools, governments, peers et al. (just because everyone does it does not make it right) but are they that much obsessed with themselves about how they "feel", that they cannot see that the future for generations to come, is being shaped and that it does not include evolution? With our consent of course.

I wonder how a parent can consider that they properly raised a child if they always protected said child from disappointment and sadness.

I wonder if people will ever realize that they seem to live in a state of perpetual childhood.

I wonder if collectively, we enjoy being treated like children and morons.

I wonder how a society which keeps getting told NOT to do something and HOW to live, can still consider itself FREE and then defend what binds us by saying "If there were no laws there would be anarchy" (I like how they say it matter-of-factually as if it were an indisputable fact). This is an obvious programmed response which is based upon having no faith in Humanity; that given the chance we will all succumb to the beast within and we will be eating each other. They try to lump greed into their equation alluding to "instinct" without ever factoring in a system which equates life to money. This is a point of Separation for both logic and people.

I wonder why people seem so afraid of Change.

I wonder why people don't seem to be able to "handle the truth".

I wonder how people can brush off the truth and label it as opinion if it is something they don't agree with.

I wonder how a populous which values their own "opinions" to the point of aggression, when confronted with logic, will ever Learn ("I'm entitled to my own opinion").

I wonder about "Innocent until Proven Guilty" when we seem to practice the opposite.

I wonder about the "lynch mob" mentality which seems to occur when the public is "informed" of an alleged wrongdoing.

I wonder how people can believe that they "own their home" when the local authority can take it for $800 of taxes owed and print your name in the paper to boot (deadbeat).

I wonder about Local Government when the Federal Government can nullify local regulations.

I wonder what gave the right to the government to sell our resources and claim ownership.

I wonder about the future of a humanity which doesn't seem to care about humans (as long as it is within budget).

I wonder what a conversation without ego or competition feels like.

I wonder, will I ever find a place which I can belong?
