My New Year's Resolution: A Cultivated Apathy

By Bill Stieger.

My single New Year's resolution is to remain sane in the face of a society that's lost its marbles. Recent years have seen me in a froth, as I raged about injustice, greed, ignorance on the America scene.

But I now choose to let it all blow past me. I refuse to let the madness of American culture drive me into the madhouse. Sorry, you saints, but I plan to take it easy.

How can I admit that? Why am I not out in the world, getting involved? Am I being an insensitive, apathetic, irresponsible citizen?

To a degree, I am.

When the guy I helped to elect president shovels billions out to the very criminals who created 2008's financial collapse, in a society that no longer offers employment, or even credit, it's time to grab the dog's tail and face the situation. And here's what the dog's ass is saying: your suffering matters not a whit to the representatives of your government.

Healthcare reform? If it passes, you'll be forced to buy it with the money you don't have in the first place.
