Well I eventually read that I Racist article after seeing your post.
We seem to live in a world where some people don’t give a shit and, increasingly, others are almost obsessed with agonizing over what is in fact often the plight of others.
Something that always puts this sort of stuff into perspective is that many of the world’s poorest are visibly its happiest. They really don’t give a shit — and in the best possible way. Anyway, it is hard to analyze what is wrong with the first world - but it sure ain’t altogether right!
Maybe it is a simple lack of attention for one another in the hectic world of supposed progress and success.
