Enthusiastic Disengagement

Soft hands reach up and a white nightgown drapes like the wings of a cherub. From above the look is much different as thoughts of drop kicking baby are seriously debated. Normalcy dictates there's not much to do, simply ride out the storm and see what happens. Then five young children are drowned in a bathtub.

Ignoring an infant is to emotional attachment what gas shortages are to a road trip, no one will be getting anywhere. Recognitions of these realities lead us to conclusions that just don't line up with current thought processes so everything is conveniently swept under the rug.

Our interactions with whiny brats who just won't sit still will continue unabated, only the next time we won't hand out Ritalin, we'll just throw them behind steel barriers and mock their choices as if they ever had one. The reasons are apparent yet we simply act as if nothing is wrong.

As long as privatization continues, and men grow wealthier on the backs of mistreated individuals there will be no strong push to actually fix our societal problems. There push must come from within. Take a real look at your neighbor and you'll see exactly what I mean.
