Cool it

Mr Rude What’s with the nastiness that’s going around these days? Is it the cardinal cross summer? Everyday on the news there someone shouting about something — Tea Party (not of the Alice kind), climate change denial, crazy road rage, peevish politicians, general random rudeness.

My workplace currently has battle-lines drawn down the middle (I’m staying clear of it) and people I know are in the most awful rows. The woman on the street who shouted ‘GOD LOVES YOU’ in my face had the nastiest scowl.

Sure, people are having a hard time — the screws seem to be tightening on different fronts — but there must be more productive ways to channel the nervous energy and ease the fear than stoke the fires of self-entitlement.

Will the early 21st century hereafter be known as the ‘Age of Anger and Resentment‘?

    I absolutely do not believe in anything like Tea Party and other thins that these blind and angry nothingnesses go spreading into the world…

    I only want to ask them some little questions:

    Did you like it or not in passed years…

    Did you accept it or not the System…

    And now the time to pay is arrived, and you will never escape the payment, the “redde ratiònem” – “give reason of your acts” litterally – which is only started…

    What should they do… They should ***change*** the way they reason, they should abandon the false things that fall that were and still are their beliefs…

    And what they do not wanna do is exactly and very very precisely this change of attitude and thought…

    So the fact that the crisis will continue is not at all a great prediction…

    From the economical the crisis will pass into the political and then into the philosophical-religious level…
    Let us start us, everyone of us, to leave the false ideas believed in passed years of drunk madness…

    This is the first, and the only real, step. Anger is never an answer but to change inside and then not to stay with hands in hands but to face things and situations…
