Very important information to understand! We need to educate ourselves!

In 2011, reporter Stephen Marche pinpointed the painful paradigm of today’s static classes:
There are some truths so hard to face, so ugly and so at odds with how we imagine the world should be, that nobody can accept them. Here’s one: It is obvious that a class system has arrived in America — a recent study of the thirty-four countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development found that only Italy and Great Britain have less social mobility. But nobody wants to admit: If your daddy was rich, you’re gonna stay rich, and if your daddy was poor, you’re gonna stay poor. Every instinct in the American gut, every institution, every national symbol, runs on the idea that anybody can make it; the only limits are your own limits. Which is an amazing idea, a gift to the world — just no longer true. Culturally, and in their…

“What if democratic voting isn’t the key to securing freedoms at all? More pointedly, if it is, why have Americans lost their freedoms at an increasing rate since we inaugurated our full fledged democracy around the turn of the 20th century?” Orrin Woodward states in his article, The American Constituation – A Republic if you can keep it.
2012 is a year of new beginnings for some with hope and possibilities for many. But very few Americans recognize or even acknowledge the reality of their free country. While many are excited about a fresh new start, millions are facing fear and desperation and hanging on to only thin threads of hope.
About 6 months ago, the-life-business founder George Guzzardo gave a talk discussing a well known self-destructive cycle of democratic behavior. The cycle identifies eight stages of a process which demonstrates exactly how history tends to repeat itself. These stages…

A fulfilling, passionate life comes from the inside out. Many of us sense that something vital is missing in our life. By society’s standards, we may already be considered successful. We never go hungry, all our needs are met, we have our friends and our family. But something is missing, and deep in our soul is a stubborn insistence that there must be more to life.
You want to make a difference in our world. A world that seems to be on the edge of something disastrous. Disastrous in finances and morals for starters. We want more in our jobs, more in our homes, more in every relationship. We reach out for a life that crackles with hope, enthusiasm, energy, and anticipation. And we hope beyond hope that we can wrap our fingers around it and claim it as our own so that we might experience a life wide open.
Jack London articulates this kind of life! “I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”
But… something is holding us back… Yes, we must admit… We are afraid. We’re afraid that life wide open will be too wide open. It may streak into the sky like a comet, beyond our control, outside our comfort zone. We want to be passionate, but we don’t want to appear insane! We want to plunge in, but we don’t want to get wet, or worse yet, drown. So we stand, glued to the dock, gazing, with anticipation at the water and dipping in a toe every now and then, imagining what it must be like to swim. Something, we know, has to happen. It’s called the leap of faith, and there’s no such thing as a halfway leap.
To find the passion you seek, to find out how to fill that emptiness in the big black hole in your life, you must be passionate about seeking.
I believe you have that seeker heart. Something vitally important is missing at the core of your soul, and, despite the apprehension you feel, you are ready to GO FOR IT!!!
Don’t be like the writer who came to this realization too late:
FIRST I WAS DYING TO FINISH HIGH SCHOOL AND START COLLEGE.
AND THEN I WAS DYING TO FINISH COLLEGE AND START WORKING.
AND THEN I WAS DYING TO MARRY AND HAVE CHILDREN.
AND THEN I WAS DYING FOR MY CHILDREN TO GROW OLD ENOUGH SO I COULD RETURN TO WORK.
AND THEN I WAS DYING TO RETIRE.
AND NOW… I AM DYING… AND SUDDENLY REALIZE I FORGOT TO LIVE.
