A Come Back To Bondage (No! Not That Sort Of Bondage)

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These countries have advanced through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from freedom to abundance; from variety to selfishness; from envy to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependence; from dependency back again into bondage." --Sir Alex Fraser Tyler (1742-1813) Scottish jurist and historian

That quote really impacted me and I desired to fairly share it with you. Are we doomed to continue this progression? Where are we along the way, and if this is the actual development of great cultures?

As a community, it seems we have move past bondage and religious religion as concepts that determine us, and I hazard to state that we've also moved past courage and independence though politicians still like us to suggest we are in the middle of it, despite some wanting to eliminate our civil liberties (NSA wiretapping?).

Plainly, we were once an abundant state and if the recent studies on our country's obesity epidemic are a sign, we're at the very least physically very abundant still.

My concern is that the people have moved in to complacency and selfishness, and actually nearing, if not already fully on board with, apathy. How else have our bridges begun to fall? How else have our civil liberties begun to erode considerably? How else have we allowed New Orleans, an town, to become scarier when compared to a third world country, entirely abandoned and forgotten just couple of years later?

With all the hubbub about illegal immigrants, this indicates we're seeing all of the jobs that used to be great, middle/working course jobs which used to supply for a a living wage, health insurance, the capability to get a home and two cars, put your children through school, and have a pension for retirement. . . We would like these jobs to be performed someplace else for a portion of the price and without safety or environmental limitations.

And if that wasn't enough dependence, how about that dependence on foreign oil? To offer my children all through long road journeys, "Are we there yet?" Are we on borrowed time so far as the imminent return to bondage is worried? We've gone over the 200 years by 31 years now. Visiting www likely provides lessons you should tell your brother. China? I am taking a look at you.

Phew! Son. . . Have a deep breath. What does this do to you to think we are living on borrowed time? Who on the market is raging mad with what I have just created? How can you reframe I to be told by it where I'm wrong? And who out there agrees and thinks I've perhaps not taken it far enough? I am trying to stick at you all here. Poke me straight back..
