21st CENTURY EPIDEMIC
I remember when AIDS was a major epidemic in the 80's. It's 2017 and we have a new epidemic to wrestle with; but it's not coming from the medical world this time. Currently we are dealing with ailments of the character on a mass level: Lies and Selfishness! When I was young one of the first things I was told about adulthood was that an adult takes responsibility for what they do -- right or wrong. SOOO many people in society today would rather lie or pass the buck as opposed to owning up to what they've done. Lies are the great coverall today. And then, there's the selfishness. People today will come to you in the guise of a friend or lover, but will use you up and toss you away like garbage as soon as you have nothing else for them to take. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who's tried to start a relationship with someone, only to find out that relationship in that person's mind meant everything was about or for them. You tell someone you love them and give them your last dollar when they ask; but they won't even give you "A" dollar when you're in need! And before anyone says anything about religion or needing a god to fix things, the liars and users I've run into have been Christians! Talk about what you need to do to fix your spirituality all day long; then turn right around and enact deception and selfishness when it suits them. Hypocrisy!!! Society today would be so funny if it wasn't so sad. We even have a president now who has a standing practice of not accepting responsibility for what he does; and he tells multiple lies weekly to a world audience. Trump is just an example of what society is today, he's not the cause. When people voted for him they voted for what they saw in the mirror every morning.
Every time one of these users does what they do, there is a person on the other side who suffers the damage. If society is this way in 2017, what will things be like in 2050 or 2060...hopefully I won't be around to find out. All I can say is: When someone comes into your life bearing lies and selfishness, turn them right around and show them the way out.
