The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers
The Question (ID Number 444)...
I've sensed a growing dissatisfaction occurring in the cultural mainstream. Examples abound of everyday people picking up and leaving their lives, or changing their lives radically (I noted this as a parallel to Mayan activity). This is primarily found in popular culture (e.g. movies, music) but also occurs on an individual basis very frequently. Do you feel this is merely an indication of something as simple as a baby-boomer universal mid-life crisis only to return to old values, or is it people changing and possibly rejecting the cultural memes we've adopted in favor of better alternatives?
...and the response:
I feel this is a hopeful trend and not just a passing fad. As the water around the boiling frog gets hotter and hotter, people are going to become more and more alarmed (as well they should) and more and more interested in seeking alternatives to sitting there and taking it.
