I'm glad to see that there are some centered people here, makes me worry a bit less? But who 'am I really to decide what's right, except for the idea that we should all adhere to a simple philosophy, row your own boat. We should concentrate on ourselves, not what others do/have etc. If we all made a small positive difference in our neighborhoods, life would be better for all. The internet is the only really new thing in yrs...and while a fantastic tool, it can be very alienating, and divisive and if you don't think AI is loose in it, you are crazy, but it is not there to take over humanity, for now, it is there to sell us stuff....if you are that easily swayed, and in my experience, many people are.
I'm not here to leave my mark on the world, rather to enjoy myself, to treat others well to the best of my ability, to help those I can. Things/status mean nothing to me, if anyone remembers me when I'm gone, all I can hope is that they can say I treated them well and was good to them. I have failed at this as much as I have succeeded, but I always strive to be better, one day at a time.
Keep the thoughts coming, this is far more interesting than fighting about politics. :)
