I can’t believe this! What is happening to this country?
Actually, I’ll tell you what’s happening. People are becoming islands. There are no communities. If people would reach out to the people around them, if people would demand accountability from others, if people would stop being so freaking selfish and actually look around them every now and then, we wouldn’t have children raising themselves, we wouldn’t have nearly as much crime, and we wouldn’t have a pitiful educational system.
And presumably, this outreach would also abolish stupid, discriminatory legislation, eventually.
But no. It’s not going to happen. “I’m too busy to meet the neighbors. I’m too busy to be active in a community group. My job is more important than other people.”
