05c1117 BLOK — an essay
How did all of this happen?
Most of us grow up naive, our parents afraid to subject us to the stark reality of life, too soon. Thus, we learn the hard way out in the real world.  
During my life it feels like humanity has degressed.  Less consciousness, more compulsive consumerism necessary for the capitalistic economic system.  
Enlightened people purchase less, anathema to the system dependent on growth!  Thus, people dumbed down, sustain capitalism!  Stupidity also creates more wars, which, ironically, are good for the economy as well!   WWII, actually, jettisoned us out of the Great Depression of the 1930s.  Gosh, what would do with war?  There would be no peace!
The problem in 2017, too many wars, the world situation unstable, on the brink, it seems like, of WWIII, which could go nuclear.  We have nutcases in the houses of leadership, but us, we the people, are to blame, as we either vote for, or support them.  WE HAVE MET THE ENEMY AND HE IS US! 
People think they have to conform to what the establishment expects, or they will be branded as undesirables. These `undesirable´people, more authentic, but usually $ poorer, artists for example. The system rewards those who play the game by their rules.  Thus, armies of robotic consumers. 
I sometimes wonder how all of this happened?  Where did we go wrong?  Should we have stayed in The Garden, like our animal friends?   Why suffer ego consciousness, what is the value? 
You can´t `no´ something, without being aware of it.  Thus, the gift of ego consciousness, symbolized with THE GARDEN OF EDEN STORY.  But, this `gift´is a double-edged sword, it cuts both ways. 
We live in a dual reality where there is no pleasure without pain.  The trick is to experience the other, (Singularity) while still in body.  
Become an Arhat! in 30-days.  We offer a money-back guarantee!
Become enlightened the easy way!  Tantric Taoism
And if you believe that you also believe in the tooth fairy, or that Trump is going to make America great again!
