Update: just realized that the numbers are identical: 70% of Americans hate their work and 70% of Americans take prescription drugs. SAME 70%?
No wonder so many Americans are sick, in pain, can’t think straight, haven’t actually encountered their own authentic emotions for years, feel chronically awful, can’t sleep, walk around like zombies, have no energy and drink too much coffee and sugar to compensate, hate their jobs, eat fast food because they don’t have time to cook and besides, they want to sit for hours to zone out of their unlived lives to get even more “programmed” by TV and video games and internet porn and violence, are horribly lonely and even suicidal, ignore the natural world and their own beleaguered bodies except to crank them full of drugs, sex, junk food and drink, have empty wallets, and troop constantly to their nearest CVS. (Not one, but two of these awful stores lie within a quarter mile of me.) Oh yes, and crave beer, wine and other “spirits” in lieu of a spiritual life, and . . . oh yes, are basically bored, or afraid, worried, or full of resentment. Did I miss something?
Perhaps getting off prescription drugs is the first step to personal freedom?
