Sooooooooo Much Worse than the Good Ol' Daze
The good Ol' Daze are gone and that is great. Perhaps we will continue to see better ones. We, as humans did horrid things years ago, it just didn't get posted on blogger. Not only did people accept them as the norm, but they didn't get caught either without DNA testing and technology that we have today. I can't believe how people rant every day since 1966, the year I was born, about how worse things are "now". We just know about them now. Half of the things, that is. It's still not perfect. Perhaps if we knew everything we'd jump off the nearest bridge. We. We? Some of us may be the very culprits. Maybe those of us who long for the good ol' days are actually worried about todays information and technology etc. Maybe that is the real reason people make those statements. No this and that didn't happen way back then, Worse things happened. Like all the babies disposed of after they were born because they had no open position on your farm or family business for them. Perhaps they were the wrong sex even. Who knows? It's for certain the pony express didn't ride up to tell you about it.
All the storms and attitudes. Well, they've been going on since before my birth and were record breakers. The attitudes were always there just more people felt justified. Now people long for a safe group to hate. Or a safe race to hate. It's like everyone runs around looking for an acceptable form of prejudice. Today it's safe to hate Smokers, Arabs, Muslims and Atheists to name a few.
The good ol' days were just that, but spelled differently, hence, the good ol' Daze.
Sure there were some good things. Politeness and growing your own food, I'm all for those things. Even hunting if it's to feed yourself and family. But trapping your own sitting ducks(cattle) isn't really the way to go if your trying to say your living off the land. Sport of killing big mean threatening bunny rabbits with little to no meat isn't quite it for me either.
There are a lot of things we could pick up again from certain times long ago and prosper from. But the sexism, abuse, murder, racism, and ignorance could be left out.
Shit, just give peace a chance lol
