    The End of Days Is Coming Fast and Itís Ugly

    The average citizen of Earth is all tied up these days. Scarcely anyone has free time to take on one more task, to truly understand what goes on in the world, or glean any meaningful benefit from world affairs. Life goes on, albeit in a more chaotic sense, as it always has. The rich get richer, as they say, and the poor get poorer. Thereís a simple reason to explain it all, but humanity is never allowed to come to terms with it. The solution to all our problems is patently simple. But the choice? Well, weíre conditioned to shun revolutions of thought and deed. Now that I have opened a misty veil into the nebulous unknowing of world affairs, let me reveal once more, the dastardly cause of all our strife. The powers that be, whether, in the north, south, east, or west, want everything for themselves. You knew this since that first overheard conversation between old men, in Athens, Beirut, Charleston, or Dublin. And if youíve dared to rear your head and lift your voice with the newfound freedom of digital means, beware, for they will soon smash you back down into the dark chamber of servitude, where you and I belong. Todayís case in point? The sister of billionaire Warren Buffett, Roberta Buffett Elliott, and an institution painted philanthropic, to cover a deceitful ghastliness. In this report, I have included Tweets from some of the panel that the Buffett Institute has assembled. The gist of these Tweets will further enlighten you...........continued here : ...https://journal-neo.org/2021/04/02/t...and-it-s-ugly/

    I think most of the Western world has lost touch with the things in life that are important , and have embraced decadence over quality of life . Money has become God , and replaced happiness .

    The link that I posted has some charts showing the drop in abject poverty, the drop in illiteracy, the drop in children dying before 5 yrs, the increase in freedom, and the increase in education.

    All of these charts show that humans are better off now that we have been in the past.

    Sure, you have a point about losing track of the important things, but that doesn't change the truth of my position.

    Economically and health-wise, life is much much better then in the past.

    There is a lot of Social Conflict.

    Fortunately, no major Wars took place after WWII.

    Oh dear, I'd better get the washing in and cancel that weekend in Blackpool. If I'm about to die I'm leaving this earth the same way I entered it. Drunk on stout dressed like Bulgarian accountant disguised as a French taxi driver pretending to be Marlene Dietrich.

    Yes , I read the link . I just don't regard the way they measure things these days is valid . Far less people would live in poverty without greed and decadence , and too many wealthy people keep enriching themselves at the expense of others .
