Different organizations have taken complete control of our lives
Increasingly different organizations - government, corporate, institutional, political, and even charitable - encroach on almost every aspect of our lives stripping away at our civil liberty, personal freedom and even our privacy.
It's getting harder and harder to live without either having to pay money or seek the agreement, permission or approval of some organization. More and more aspects of our lives are becoming dominated by ideology, belief systems, forcing us to conform and fit in with certain criteria.
Loss of culture leads to a lack of opportunities
A lack of investment in cultural development and human creativity has resulted in a new culture where everything is reduced to the lowest common denominator and where opportunities are getting fewer and fewer and less and less diverse.
An emphasis on money, getting money and making a profit has all but replaced an interest in humanity and the more valuable, positive aspects of our being, our creativity, our compassion, our intelligence, our capacity to love, create beauty, and be kind to each other.
We are losing much of what it means to be human
Increasingly people are becoming far more divided and isolated, many are becoming much more judgmental, many people are struggling just in order to live, and many more just aren't surviving.
Apathy is widespread as is ignorance, partisanship, abdication and conformity, simply because many people are afraid to be themselves among others for fear of what it might cost them. Suicide and premature deaths have increased dramatically. Something needs to change - but what?
