This message first popped into my head when someone asked me why we barely hear “real music” anymore. Real music meaning, from the heart. Making music you love, rather than looking for a “hit” record. I simply replied “because people just want to be distracted. They don’t want to face the truth”. I than went deeper in thought and came to a realization that we as a united nation, not only want to be distracted from our own daily problems, but our problems united. The new form of rebelling is to say “who is God to tell me what to do with my life. If they’re such bad things, than why does it feel so good to do them?”.

I don’t speak religion. I simply speak truth. Look at the facts. The drinking and drugs alone are a major cause of deaths and health problems. Sex? Look at all the kids without stable homes, or loving parents, or money to go around and feed them. We chose to sleep around so much, that our population increased immensely.
