I agree totally that the 'conditioning' syndrome is alive and well mate. It seems to sneak up on us without any notice, and in the end it becomes a form of 'acceptance' (sub conciouslesly) and that is the start of the slippery slope Pablo, a sort of shrugging shoulder syndrome where those in power can do whatever they want and know that little will be done.
I fully admit that it is very difficult habit to break out from, but I do maintain this one philosophy mate.
'IF' enough of us made our voices heard, (email, snail mail, marches, protests, etc) then 'maybe' things would be different. The trouble that the mere thought of 'doing something' also comes with the mindset of 'What Good Would It Do', BUT.
If we could organise a national day of protest, emails, snail mail, etc, the outcome may be different mate. I know very easy in theory, but I am a firm believer that enough of us raised up ad said what we actually thought it WOULD make a difference.
Can you imagine the MP's receiving over ten million emails within a week, or several MILLION people marching on parliament, i honestly think Pablo that maybe a change would come about.
It's also very easy for me to sit here and pontificate, again, and to blame the apathy for the way things are, but that is the truth mate. Apathy is a dangerous and vile condition to have, this is when governments all over the world can do what they please, and that as I said is a dangerous slope.
It's no good me blaming and accusing people of Apathy, we all have busy lives to lead mate, families to look after, careers to concern ourselves with, BUT.
It would only take one small step (in the grand scheme of things) to make our points valid, we all have opinions on things such as criminality, money, the NHS, the list is endless mate, but a firm believer in what affects one os us affects us ALL.
The NHS, murders may not affect us personally at this PARTICULAR time, but that does not admonish us of helping others that are struggling with the 'system', blah, blah, blah.
Sorry to go on mate, but I truly do hold true that every action we take affects ALL those around us, in short mate, long live (ignite) a 'Social Consciousness'.
Over and out mate,
