Why Aren't We Discussing Societal Issues Daily?


There's a lot going on in this world everyday but I start to question if we are discussing things on a daily basis. There are a lot of societal issues that we face and it's not just about posting it on social media, getting a few likes, a few comments and then the discussion ends. We seem to discuss whatever is going on in the world among our peers, family and friends and that's it.

We're not going out of our way to impact people in society, that's our biggest problem. We're selfish human beings in our own way, we expect people to do for us but not for them a lot of times. We give when we want to, not consistently and regularly. There's homelessness, veterans without jobs, violence, domestic violence, women's issues, pedophilia, child abuse, drug and alcohol addictions and so many more things that we don't concern ourselves with everyday.

We seem to pick and choose when we want to care and that's not always a good thing. We should be caring regularly and way more. Our communities need everyone to be all in, not when it's convenient or when something goes wrong and we feel strongly about an issue. We wait until the news reports it for us to care just a little bit more. Then two weeks later, the story lines fade into oblivion until it happens again and the vicious cycle of caring, anger, frustration and many other emotions comes into play (gun control, a prime example of this).

It's like we're waiting on one person to be a leader and then we all follow with what they do. Meanwhile we can all be leaders in our own way and do way more. If we all decided to be leaders and start a revolution, then things can change. We sit and depend on celebrities and athletes to be our saviors when they're not going to. Everyone cares about something out of all of the societal issues I mentioned.

Let's start doing more than just posting on social media pages expressing our frustrations and get out into the world and take actions. The problem is the world keeps you engulfed and "too busy," for you to go out there and make an impact. Words don't mean much when we aren't doing the real work to make this world a better place.

My books on societal issues are on the website and my podcast The Aquarianmind Podcast where I discuss a plethora of issues that are going on in the world today.

My new book "The World In Ruins: A Travel Into The Future" is available now in all major bookstores!



Be good and go accomplish your goals!
