A Go 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 evolved through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual religion to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from variety to selfishness; from selfishness 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 price really impacted me and I wanted to talk about it with you. Are we doomed to continue this development? Where are we in the process, and if here is the actual development of great civilizations?

As a community, it seems we've shift past bondage and religious religion as principles that determine us, and I risk to express that we've also moved past courage and freedom although politicians however like us to suggest we're in the center of it, despite some wanting to eliminate our civil liberties (NSA wiretapping?).

Demonstrably, we were once an abundant region and if the recent studies on our country's obesity epidemic are a sign, we're at the very least actually quite abundant still. To get other interpretations, consider peeping at: article.

My fear is that the masses have moved into complacency and selfishness, and actually approaching, or even already fully on board with, apathy. How else have our connections started to collapse? How else have our civil liberties started to erode significantly? How else have we allowed New Orleans, an town, to become scarier when compared to a third world country, completely abandoned and forgotten just couple of years later?

We are already dependent. We outsource our jobs to India and China to ensure that we could have cheap foreign labor. We assemble cars in Mexico for the exact same cause. Our trucking market is apparently heading up to Mexican companies.

With all the hubbub about illegal immigrants, this indicates we're watching all of the jobs that used to be good, middle/working school careers which used to offer for a a living wage, medical insurance, the ability to buy a house and two cars, put your children through college, and have a pension for retirement. . . we want these jobs to be done somewhere else for a portion of the price and without safety or environmental limits.

And if that was not enough dependence, how about that dependence on foreign oil? To quote my children during long road trips, \Are we there yet?\ Are we on borrowed time so far as the imminent come back to bondage is worried? We have gone over the 200 years by 31 years now. China? I am taking a look at you. If you have an opinion about writing, you will certainly hate to read about amazon.com/tyler-collins/e/b01a8gj4ie/.

Phew! Boy. . . Have a deep breath. What does this do for your requirements to consider we are living on borrowed time? Who out there is raging mad using what I have just created? How will you reframe I to be told by it where I am wrong? And who available believes and thinks I've perhaps not taken it far enough? I am trying to poke at you all here.
