Independence

The 4th of July. A national holiday in the US. Today maybe should think about a different thing to be independent of, or should I say things. Things like alcohol, and illicit drugs  ,the very things that many people use to celebrate. Freedom from illness, mental and physical would be nice too. But all of the aforementioned things are pipe dreams. I’m going off the subject for a moment.

The reason i say that change won’t happen is because it is like the global oil situation. As long as there is oil to pump and cars, trucks and airplanes to put it in, then oil will be pumped until it is gone. Drug companies have a lot of money invested in chemicals. Until there is incentives to do more research, they will ride cash cows till the patients come home.

Too early to tell? Maybe people need to be shocked and angered and annoyed. Big manufacturers would say the there is no chance of that happening and they are right. It would take a big change in the way people think to make any real change.
