The age of surprises is not finished. Medical discoveries, genetic research, and computers are constant leaping over hurdles. Innovative and amazing ideas flourish every day, every hour even.
One would surmise that with all this new information and communication there would be collaboration between cultures and the respective developed countries.
The very issues that existed many millennia in the past still slither along the same threads of distrust, hate, anger, and ancient grudges. Same as it always was? Is that the correct phrase?
Well, I am tired of it.
When the World was so very big (when it was still flat), the people were hidden from view or discovery. Evil and good were invisible. Ironically, that time was called “The good ole days”.
The World has shrunk to where nothing is private. Whatever occurs 125,000 miles away pops up on any electric screen in minutes. Satellites hovering in space can zero in on a person unloading groceries or a license plate. Computers are easy pickings by any tech with skills can almost tell me what I am thinking (which is not very nice at the moment).

Yes, I am way tired of it.
No one will look back and call these days “the good ole days”. How can they?
Be-headings and massacres just a day's flight away to the West?
Political prisoners held for decades another day's flight to the East? Racism rampant?
A young Marine locked in a Mexican prison for almost seven months without our own government intervening?
But then, with elbola virus and other assorted methods to wipe out entire populations, the ones who remain may not even remember this era of transparency.
Oh, yes, I am so very tired of it.
Please recognize this for the rant that it is. I have been consulting with computer tech help all afternoon. I watch on-screen as he sorted through every programming, every hardware, every piece of information that might be damaging my dear computer. It felt a little like an annual physical.
