“Greatest Love Of All”
I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be…
Whitney Houston’s song makes me wonder, what sort of future are our kids, and their kids, etc going to have.
Children have changed, and changed not for the better. Parents, educators, governments, welfare have all abdicated their responsibilities, leaving the children to flounder, to wallow in self-pity.
As a race we have plundered and destroyed the planet in our greed and are now busy picking over the bones; no one is interested but a few, too few.
We are all too busy looking through or rose tinted spectacles to see reality.
We think of the world as being replete with technology and happy babies choosing their own nursery rhymes from an iPad.
But, I wonder is the future more likely to be this…
Squalid, surrounded by pollution and filth, children abandoned, left to fend for themselves as humanity sinks into the very chaos we say we are trying to avoid.
All the indicators point to this rather than the rosy picture above.
The world’s global economy is destroyed, it’s gone. What is left at the moment are the final spasms, the death rattle before it finally kicks the bucket.
Once the economy fails, society fall into shreds.
We have peoples who are hell bent on destroying other peoples in the name of power and religion. The politicians and religious leaders have gone off the rails; and like the wagons on a goods train, we the people are following them off the tracks.
The future will resemble nothing, absolutely nothing like anything we have previously known or had the capacity to even imagine.
No electricity, no gasoline, no education, no housing, no food. Men will fight for survival, they will kill their neighbours for food and drinkable water. Many will become nomadic, wandering hither and thither searching for a means survival.
We are well on the path of regression returning to our savage ways of Neanderthal ancestors, perhaps the regression will be even further towards extinction.
The Future, the Ominus Future…
