It seems my blog posts are well read, but they generate ‘no comment’ with respect to what others think and feel about our ‘modern world’. Maybe, I should start another blog with broader appeal, rather than limiting it as I do somewhat, to mainly the Crowsnest Pass area?
In any event, I am tired of sharing what I know and think only to have it fall on apparently deaf ears. So, I too, will do as one of our blog councillors is presently doing, and go on vacation (despite his still drawing a municipal pay cheque and still attending council meetings, committee meetings and board meetings, all while avoiding (or ‘hiding’) from his blog world on the ‘pretext’ of a summer vacation), while another seems to have tunnel vision and concentrates on only one issue – The Centre – while at the same time offering no vision or action plan on what comes next.
Anyhow, to say I am disappointed in the apparent ‘apathy’ running rampant in the Crowsnest Pass (and lack of ‘real leadership’), would be an understatement, to say the least. It’s one thing to wash your hands of local issues, but quite another to wash your hands of the world you live in. As I said in my last post – nonjudgmentalism is a moral vacuum.
Seemingly insurmountable obstacles confront all world reformers, when pure idea meets the opposing force in the inertia of the human mind and the resistance of entrenched power. It represents a revolution of the dynamic against the static, of higher values against pseudo-values, of freedom against slavery, and it is not limited to one time in history, nor to mankind as a whole, but occurs repeatedly in the life of individual man.
