Having It All, Yet having Nothing.
Depression the new epidemic. I was quite moved by this story and led to reflect on the almost daily reporting of youngsters committing suicide. Or of mental difficulties brought on by bullying, family breakdown and the whole panoply of modern life, in the World's once vibrant nations of the West.
A major factor,in my humble view, is the loss of decency and values of morality in a global elite utterly devoid of any consideration whatsoever for Christian teaching. No one need believe in Jesus Christ as the son of God or necessarily anything but a brilliant IQ, with an insight into how Human Beings should use their intelligence to live worthwhile lives.
Unfortunately none of Christ's guidance suits the overwhelming force of selfish greed. It does not allow for "self" to entertain anything but narcissistic obsession for personal superiority and power over others. Thus the very nature of fidelity in relationships and the sensible union of marriage and family, are matters less easily bent to the will of the State, corporate and gangster goals for supremacy and therefore have to be discouraged.
It must therefore follow that the steady erosion of a once inherently more stable existence, warts and all, founded on the tenets of self sacrifice and service, was a virtually inevitable consequence of the socialist desire to pretend all were equal in "Animal Farm". At least until the incumbent head Fred was evicted and other snouts dived gleefully into the trough. As pigs, those snouts could devour anything.
So is this our modern society? One where the pigs at the top are full of gluttony for all they can get? Are our erstwhile rich and powerful indifferent to the breakdown of family values and nurture, witnessed by the broken homes a huge number now suffer and experience? It would seem so and the depressing march to wholesale depression looks unstoppable. There again we have seen matters come to a head in the past, so who knows where we might be headed. Certainly not the EUSSR, one hopes. Another Animal farm in the making!
