Preemptive steam release...

I want to say that communication is harder than it seems. In addition to delivering information, it can also represent an attempt to regulate the chaos of existence into something palatable for the communicator and the perceived circumstances that gave rise to the communication.

I want to say that while the mass rise of goods and services makes perfect sense to me, the mass rise of business does not. As far as I can tell, the unstated purpose of business is to generate profit for a small group of people who distinguish themselves by having disposable income and by not belonging to the lower classes. That, and to feed a mass global obsession with an ever-growing money based economy.

I want to say that I'm feeling way over policed in Los Angeles. The presence of countless cops and security guards and all-seeing cameras makes one feel like a child always on the verge of doing wrong. It's a horrible way to live, and I don't believe that these public servants even know what "order" they're protecting. Most of them seem bored and power-starved, thus eager to intervene in strangers' lives.

I'm interested in systems that let us do our lives, not ones that stymie and stifle our will to live.

One must get behind efforts to bring sanity, not just to where one lives, but to the global community. One must vigorously get behind the effort, because the fruit of the goal is a long way off. One must curatively get behind the effort, because of the symptoms you write about...........
