No civilization has lasted forever. Nothing, for that matter, has lasted forever. Whether it be due to decadence or entropy, everything comes to an end.
Is there any reason to believe that, given the socio-psychological dynamics that govern us and our society today, that a final limit to our self-destructive tendencies can one day be expected to be drawn? Without our civilization coming to an end? As usual.
What a shame that the world’s most ‘aware’ people—this means you—just can’t take their awareness a step further, one based on an awareness of the inherently destructive quality of certain extremist tenets/tendencies on both the right and left, admit their personal shortcomings, and humbly try to find a concerted, honest compromise.
Unfortunately, for this to come about, one may have to undergo a radical psychological transformation; but such a transformation is almost always reserved to a “traumatic” experience whose result is most always negative. In effect, the affected person may be sufficiently “cracked,” if you will, allowing him to see/feel such important issues as we are talking about from two otherwise polarized perspectives—and agree to a necessary compromise—but this “may be” is usually not the case. Indeed, it’s a little too much to expect a situational procedure in our society whereby the people be cracked, and this, in a way favorable to the desired outcome. Conclusion:
It’s only going to get worse, and there’s nothing we can do about it.
