You are right, we have all become nihilistic or skeptics maybe much worst.Yes, the government steals half of everyone's paychecks and never provides receipts for what the money is spent on. I get receipts every time I pay the electric bill, buy groceries, pump gas, purchase clothes, and get an oil change, yet the government is the only entity that demands half of everyone's paycheck and doesn't give anyone a receipt. We have no inkling of what our labor transmuted into paper currency has been spent on. For those in the know, though, it has been deposited into the misappropriation fund. It's the same as "protection money' for the mob.
Pay your money to the government so the government can protect you from the government.
I mean, how long are people going to be okay that their tax dollars are going to a new investigation to investigate the investigators of the last investigation into the corrupt government?
But there is a level after that. Money collapses shortly after society. There may be a couple of days in which people programmed by society still accept paper issued by the government in exchange for goods and services, but the gravity of the situation will soon set in. People can't eat money. They can't shelter themselves or their families with hundred dollar bills.
Preppers will be overrun by those with fire power who take their canned goods. What kind of world will be left to live in then? Not one I desire to be a part of.
If one follows the chain of logic far enough, there is no point in hoarding money or food or ammunition. If we have learned anything from history, it is that this place is reset time and time again. We repeat the same mistakes time and time again, and even though you and I can see that now, before it happens again, there is no reaching others. These are the rules of the game. There have been many civilizations that have reached our point of technological proficiency, and stored their knowledge in "smart" phones and clouds, leaving very little tangible evidence that they even existed, much less any wisdom to relay to future generations. We share the same fate.
I know my view point is nihilistic, but it is also common sense. We are circling the drain. No new ideas are infused into our society. The 20 year cycle of fashion has now become a free-for-all in which bell bottoms and skinny jeans are accepted at the same time. The 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 2000's and every other time period are now embraced. Wanna be a 1920's flapper? Yeah, that's cool. Movies are being rebooted after the opening weekend. My god, how many effin' Avengers movies are there? Roseanne, Will and Grace, Friends... shows that people under 40 remember as being original are now "new" again.
We have nothing new to offer. End game.
Words such as friend, mother, love, home, compassion, charity or war, killing even genocide are big words.
Every spiritual aspect of human life was corrupted long ago and continues to be so.
TV, radio, movies, most lower places of learning subtly nudges one to find a grey area that sidesteps your natural spiritual abilities .
Tell me what an "anti hero" means. My take a person that breaks the physical and moral law to do the right thing, what?
What about "god" tells you to kill a whole tribe of different people, so you can have their land, what?
Man seems to lose its ability to function as moral once material possessions enter the equation. Man becomes threatened by others that are threatened by others trying to be in control of all before them, these men tend to be afraid of their moral history and if killing everyone that could stand witness to that history is what it takes one to sleep at night so be it. Remember they have lost their moral way.
Most leaders of our present world are weak in their morality and are easily led to fit in, by doing the right thing to assuage their lack of morality by committing atrocities in the name of good, What?
So in my opinion there will be a large "Reset" starting with a few smaller ones first. The negative energy build up will cause earth changes as sure as rain will come.
