"People just want more. More money, more time, more pleasure. But not only do they want more; they want it to be easy. Its rare to see someone who wants to be fit, but is willing to work their asses off to obtain it. They usually look for the easiest and fastest way to get what they want and that’s why our government has so much control over us. As we become greedier and lazier, they give us what we think we want: 500 TV channels for half price, buy an iPhone and get a free case, unlimited soda refills. These are all things we have been brainwashed to think we need, when in reality, they’re completely worthless. We have become so disconnected to whats truly important in life: helping one another, loving nature, and making the world a better place, because after all it is our home. So much is happening around the world and this country that people don’t know about because they’re hiding behind this American “blindfold,” where we’re so focused on the materialistic aspects of life. Thats why we have so many things to distract us from the truth, that’s why we have reality television, fast food and Hollywood. There is so much to see once you look across the oceans that surround this country. So much pain, so much suffering, so many lies, that are hidden from us to make us think that we are safe, while the same exact things are happening in our own country. The only difference between us and the other countries out there is that they’re awake, and we are not."
