that takes the piss the way people blow money on useless things that only give them temporary enjoyment in an ideal and perfect no family would ever be in poverty and have to sacrifice between heating and lighting and food the table but the world is not ideal or perfect and it's sad

Neave,

I completely agree with you.  Someone wrote an article a few years ago about how it works in Denmark, for instance.  In Denmark, you get a stipend if you're not considered to be making enough money.  They mentioned one woman's story (not an anecdotal example, but rather, they interviewed her about how she survived on very little money); she was a housekeeper, earning a pitiful amount of money; however, the point was that instead of telling her she'd just have to work a second job or move back in with her parents or go homeless or whatever, as many would do in "wealthier" nations today, they gave her a stipend.  The stipend wasn't for spending foolishly.  It was given to her so she could work at her job and still be able to pay her reasonable expenses...food, clothing, shelter, transportation, utilities, etc.  So she could stay at her job without worrying about how she was going to meet her basic needs.

Unfortunately, a lot of people see it as "laziness" or unwillingness to work, but they always forget that people in many situations, particularly today, work for terrible minimum wage jobs, which guarantee them nothing and force them to work second and even third jobs just to survive.  Cry

Many people who never struggle never know what it's like to struggle, and thus, they have no empathy.  Cry  And that's why the world is as messed up as it is.  Cry

Neave,

It really should be, but it's not.  Frown  There are too many people who entirely lack empathy for others.  Frown

Neave,

I agree, it could very well happen.  Cry  Humans are warmongerers.  Despite the fact that not everyone is that way, the number of people who are seem to overwhelm the number of pacifists.  Cry

Not to get depressing, but if we don't blow ourselves up, we'll find another way...there are already terrible climate change issues, and people who have the power to do something about those consistently stick their heads in the sand.

I've read things where people make the comment that we can fit so many more people into an area the size of Texas; sadly, those are the same people who would be appalled at how small of a space that would be.  In third world countries, they have millions of people living in tiny spots like that, which are unfit for human habitation...but they have no choice at all.  Guaranteed, the closer people in denial get to making that happen, the faster that will happen in more democratic countries.

I don't think it's hopeless, but in order for change to occur, people who stick their heads in the sand have to start thinking realistically.  I don't know what it will take for that to happen, though.

to wake the world up and see sense it will probably another presidental assination to wake the world up abit and make the ostriches that are the goverments around the world  finally see some bloody sense and no i do not wish that on president obama or any other future president to come but in reality that is probably what it will take to make the politicans all over the world stop being ostriches and sticking their heads in the sand and doing absolutely nothing about the real things that matter rather than creating yet a 3rd world war

Let's hope it doesn't come to that!  Surprised

Unfortunately, I don't think even that would make the tiniest bit of difference.  And sadly, that would just make the ostriches very happy indeed if someone did something terrible.  They live on chaos...at least here they do.  Cry  If things are peaceful and good...they believe they're not complaining enough and not putting out enough propaganda to make people think things are very different than they really are.  Cry

Neave,

I can't either.  Cry  Just too much violence.  Cry  We humans can be pretty crappy to each other (and to our ecosystem).  Cry

Neave,

LOL, I keep thinking that's the answer!  Laughing  I always tell my husband he's an alien from outer space.  If I ever catch him wearing a tinfoil hat, that will be incontrovertible proof!  Wink
