Healthy Anger to Motivate Change

So many things to say today..screaming in my head.Best to write them all down i believe.And be forewarned..this will offend just about do what and think what you will..i'm not afraid of being "unfriended" on Facebook, being gossiped about or not being "included"in things. I'm done being a doormat.My opinion is that it's just too damn scary for some people to take a good hard look at themselves, their environment/community/nation, and their behaviors... and be honest.Disclaimer: i am NOT singling anyone out here or pointing fingers at individuals specifically. I welcome challenges, always up for a good discussion. And think about this- if you are offended, often the root issue is within, not with the other person.

1.First of all , it sickens me that health insurance in our country is such a scam. It feeds the insurance industry, the pharmacies, and the federal government through investments on Wall street.The bottom of the pyramid feeds the top..and when the top gets too top heavy it will tip. You will be crushed under their weight and become collateral damage unless you have built a strong foundation.
2. It makes me angry that deregulation has enabled our county to feed the rich by allowing them to create their own money through debt( the $ isn't even's an illusion they've made us believe).
3.Apathy( the most common ailment in this country) is crippling the masses.No change comes from apathy. Simply sitting around with your head in the sand and stating you just wanna be happy and not angry is exactly what the wealthy count on to become even richer. Complacency( idiocracy) comes from apathy. Real change means healthy anger (not misdirected) and action.I means suffering, pain and sacrifice.If you have kids, think about your future generations, if you don't, maybe you care about animals or the planet. If you care about none of this you are a waste of human life and a huge part of the problem.
4. It starts with the man in the mirror and people helping people. Look at your self- ask honest questions. If you think you're happy at the moment, wait until this vicious cycle hits home. Then be "forced" to re evaluate. P.S.- sitting around in a some esoteric bubble helps no one, and eventually your own bubble will burst- no man is an island unto himself.Inner peace in and of itself is just that-
its all about you...again, a huge part of the problem.It's not a bad thing, but its not the ONLY thing thats important.
5. When i say look in the mirror, i mean make sitting there feeling sorry for yourself and doing nothing to change your circumstances. Eliminate the things you don't need. Stop buying on credit and f*ck your credit score( living on a credit based economy isn't good for anyone). Take the $ u save and pay off whatever debt you can and let the government and corporations take on what you can't- most likely its their fault you have that debt anyway-enabling consumers to buy on credit , tricking/forcing them into health care plans that are scams, etc- let them eventually topple- "starving the troll" in a sense).Take the rest of that $ and save it so you have cash on hand..not sitting somewhere allowing the hierarchy to use it to create more wealth while giving you back nothing or some paltry amount to "placate" you into apathy.I can give a ton of examples here- IRA's,401k's, health insurance premiums, savings accounts mutual funds,credit spending, etc)
6. When i say people helping people, i mean start in your own back yard( literally or figuratively- could mean in your community).And not just "family"- it takes a village as they say. When you help someone, the potential and probability of them helping back is much higher.It may not happen every time, but the ratios won't lie over time.Help people directly, not just through donating ( and this should be done privately- tooting your own horn creates resentment).
7. Stop sitting behind a computer bitching and doing nothing..educate yourself ..theres a wealth of info out and off(libraries, friends, experience).Then use that info to empower yourself and others.Social media is one way, but its not the only way you should be addressing the issues.Anyone with questions about what i personally/specifically have done may feel free to contact me.I'll give u a run down . Wasted space in this format.
8. Don't accept government assistance- chances are you really don't need it- and it keeps them in control.And lines their pockets through false "subsidy " programs where the majority of the $ goes to the higher ups who do very little. These are also partly or mainly funded by the taxpayer. Can you walk and talk and post coherently on Facebook? Can you make it out to social events , go on vacation, do anything physically active?Then you aren't disabled.There's a job for you. You have back pain, anxiety, depression,  feel "suicidal" everyday-  but- welcome to the rest of the world- this doesn't entitle you.I deal with those things daily, and many many do along with other issues. Get help, or help yourself- but not at the expense of the rest of us.
9. Can't work because minimum wage isn't worth it? Do something about that.Again, gather info, work and save,make expenditure changes, lifestyle changes( seriously- while everyone deserves a "little " something for pleasure/sanity-do you really need that cup of Starbucks several times a week?, do you need a ton of resource consuming lights on your house for the holidays?Then don't bitch about the cost of things and your electric bill.).Stop covering up your discomfort by.self medicating.I did this, it doesn't work in the long run.You need to be clear, focused, and in discomfort to be motivated to make changes.Which leads to another issue in this country....
10.Stop just having kids,without thinking about your personal responsibility to provide for them-it's not everyone else obligation to pay for them through taxes, inflation etc..or even the "governments" had them, step up. And/or if you already do- teach them about morals, ethics, work, responsibility, and helping others.Lead by example.Don't promote: race rage,  anger about unfairness while doing nothing but whining or bitching, fear, or  apathy.Stop blaming the police, and learn about why they have become what they have.I guarantee you it's not what you think, and then put yourself in their position.
