It’s a simple concept that has driven our economy for decades. And it’s now a bumper sticker created by Someguy to make us question just why we’ve been sheeple for so long. Read more about his project, The Economy, at Co.EXIST to understand why it’s becoming more and more uncomfortable for each and every one of us to just sit there and take the value systems we’re told are proper. If they’re not our own value system, then how can they be proper and why shouldn’t we question it? That’s a question that no one’s ever been able to answer in all of the years that I’ve asked it.
And seriously, Someguy does have a point when we are now seeing the debut of the Cheeseburger Crown Crust pizza in the most unlikeliest of places. I’m feeling more than a bit uptight myself, and it’s not because I’m wearing Spanks (um no, not going to happen). And this thought of his resembles my own thoughts (and many other people as well):
I’d argue that I’m a closet optimist, because regardless of the odds, I keep trying to change things. All it takes is for one person to change their thinking, and then another will, and eventually, change will happen.
- thanks Co.EXIST for a great post and reminder to keep trying because we’re not standing alone
