I know many of you try hard to be helpful and it is a fact that the world still has many outstanding fine people, but overall I see the paradigm shift that has occurred in a few generations bringing us all to a bad space! More people today are desensitized and even indifferent to another individual’s strife! Respect for life and compassion have been replaced many times by inflated self-interest and materialistic goals by most people. The old slogan what’s in it for me is really taking root in almost every corner of the earth with humans! Excuse me I have something better to do than listen to your troubles, unless you want to pay a lot of money then I can try my best to listen, and even in that scenario they will take your money and give very little in return! Sorry to say, it’s become every man or woman for himself! When did that expression get coined, long ago with seafaring travelers when the ship was going down! Is this a sign, is the Ship called “Humanity” going down in a violent, chaotic ocean? Has all the wholesale abortion of human life and the exploitation of any other form of life on the planet for profit caused such greed to exceed; making people more machine than human?
