The power to create a world, solely from the words written by your own mind, is a gift that should never be hidden.

Random thoughts while driving

Well actually it is a random "thought" for the moment. I had this pop into my head a few days back.

Society is built around
a system of
survival of the stupid.

Yep. I am going to offend someone with that statement but if you really take a minute to think about it you might see where I am coming from. For instance all around us we are buried with signs.

No swimming - set near a waterfall.

Caution, contents hot - your morning coffee.

They are out there. Everywhere. Now take a minute to think about our government. Here in BC we have just won a fight against our own government that started years ago. We have voted to turn back the clock and return to a system of taxation that was changed just this year. Sounds great right? Well it does have it's bonus sides. For instance, gas prices should be lowering since the taxes have lowered.

Who thinks any one of those gas stations are going to lower the prices back to pre-tax levels?
You got it, no-one.

Schools? Did you know that you can not "fail" school anymore? Yes, you can skip, never learn to read, pull your socks off to count to twenty and play on your cell phone all day in class. You will still pass no matter what. How is this preparing children for their working future? It is no wonder so many young people get frustrated when they start looking for jobs.

The list goes on and on. In fact I could go on for quite a while. Yet the most important thing is your thoughts. Any other things about the system we have today that really gets under your skin? Let me know in the comments below. Let's see how long this list can get.
