Phishing for Ideas
I am watching the high technology and social media phase of my human history.
In places where online existence is not the most important location to be, it must be refreshing. One can roam the fields, trek the hills and caves, fish in the secret spots, look for some pebbles to take home, admire the sun rise and sundown and the stars when the night sky is clear.
With online activities, there is so much energy used by people trying to out-do each other in just about every aspect of human relations and emotions. Before, a place with this much activity was called 'the city' by country folk.
There is so much competition - more than ever before.
Competition has always been a part of business dealings.
Business leads to wealth. Politicians and the organized rich control business networks. Wealth create power (commerce, property, human trade). Small business owners want to take part in some of these networks but are limited. Entrepreneurs have products and solutions that get snatched up by others who are phishing for ideas.
Most low and middle income people are not greedy for power. But, they would like to be comfortable and not go hungry. They want to provide their children the latest toys and pay for higher education.
Like with tales such as Robin Hood or with real events such as indigenous disrespect, nothing has changed much with the have's and have nots.
There are always going to be enough poor peasants being born for the wealthy to use as labor, to kill each other when the rich spin their stories, and desperate enough to work for the same corporations and bullies who take from them.
A dim light of hope is seen through those brave company leaders who are trying to acknowledge the truth of unfair and unequal work practices and embrace the necessary painful steps to change things.
Another year of the same human drama is ending.
We are reminded that herd immunity takes time.
R/evolution of humanity begins with an individual choosing to practice differently for the sake of future generations. The opposite of practicing greed is sharing.

Write Your Story
We have many stories to tell.
Let's write them down. Why?
Because we want to remember who we are.
These stories are the history books of tomorrow. We are witnesses of what happened in our lives before, during, and after a pandemic of isolation, division, and emotional burnout.
Welcome 2021 Anyways...cheers!
