Sleeping on the Love Seat
Do you really care how big your TV is? Do you really want to have the greenest grass on your block? Do you know why you do the things you do? Do you realize that when someone gets trampled while shopping it is not a small group of people who are to blame but the entire crowd, the store, and the whole sickening shop till you drop mentality. Everyone I talk to has a list of criticisms of everyone else on this planet a mile long but few if any for themselves. We don't realize that these ills are just our own choices fed back to us. Blame everyone else, curse the system, and then work as hard as you can to be like them and conform to it. And even worse, we teach this philosophy to our kids because no parent wants a kid that doesn't fit in. "I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me."
