Let’s start off by wishing you a very happy new year. I hope you had a blessed Christmas with lots of celebrations and good times. Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back to work. And not just work on making money, but also on improving our understanding of life and the world.
A phrase you often hear is: nowadays people are distant and cold, and are just after their financial gain. Our vanity is glaringly obvious in the way we relate to our clothes. See our post on Are our pants, shirts and jackets just vanity at best.
If we continue to focus all our resources on the way we look, we are going to end up with a terrible society. Where we look great, have all the right stuff, yet constantly hurt each other and feel threatened by everybody.
And the fact that this is how things currently are means that, historically, this is what we have been doing. The kids of today are a product of the parents of yesterday. So trying to go back to the way things were, because you don’t like where they lead, is a very strange thing to do. In fact, it doesn’t make sense at all.
Have a nice 2017
