Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

Our country was based on the liberation of the classes. It was based on the thought that anyone could move from poverty to riches with hard work, drive and clear goals. Capitalism helped spur the industrial revolution, the dot.com revolution, the rise of the web, the Silicon Valley, the individual as important to the whole, and the final collapse of our economy.

Capitalism could have run its course. Our country was based on the liberation of the classes. It was based on the thought that anyone could move from poverty to riches with hard work, drive and clear goals. Capitalism helped spur the industrial revolution, the dot.com revolution, the rise of the web, the Silicon Valley, the individual as important to the whole, and the final collapse of our economy.

Now Capitalism stagnates. The wealthy are far wealthier and the poor are far poorer and that great divide has grown like a giant chasm on the face of our country. We are becoming a two class society. The separation seems to be based on technology and the desire to learn and change. Those that refuse to acknowledge change in electronic form will be left behind. Those that embrace it will speed ahead to greater heights. And the Middle Class is left in the middle to decide for themselves.

And yes, Viriginia, the Middle Class will need to decide and decide quickly. Either jump on the band wagon of electronic media or be left in the dust of musty rotten paper. It will be  a decision to weigh on the future lives of any projected children as well. The expanse of the classes grows and the American Middle Class is fading and being absorbed in either of two directions.

Sending your child to college is not going to cut it either. Universities and Colleges everywhere are starting to lose their credibility. When basketball players can graduate from the finest school with no concept of the English language then you know trouble is brewing. When graduates take off their cap and gowns and move into the real world with no real experience as a functioning self-starter, life is about to get harder for those same institutions and the individuals they spew forth.  When professional athletes can make more money than the best of teachers our society hangs on the edge of a deep abyss.

Capitalism has run its course. A new direction is forthcoming.
