Re: Yes...

>>You know, thinking about what I do... I'm in the position of yelling 'Fire!' when most everyone else seems intent on ignoring the smoke. [Ok, except for a percentage of the people on my f-list that is] <<

Frequently true.

>>But I hear what you are saying as well.. that we're just building sand castles here really. One cannot build a healthy personal environment in a toxic society, at least, not for long.<<

There are some steps that can be taken, but the people who want the world in ruins have more leverage than the ones who don't.

>>I think then that there aren't too many options left. Either to opt out altogether or to give up, lay down and die metaphorically, [or possibly literally if one really gives into despair.]<<

When I have the energy and opportunities, I work on making the world a better place. When I don't, I step back and wait to recharge.

At least I'll have the satisfaction of standing in the foyer-ever-after and saying, "I fucking told you so." I may not be able to stop the bastards from creating one catastrophe after another, but I can make them work for it.
