The real world is still out there

The real world is still building and decaying, growing and dying outside of my personal bubble that bounces like a pinball between work, home, friends and the city.

The earth revolves a little slower out in the real world. The real world waves at you as you walk by. The real world keeps busy by mowing its yard, chasing its kids, and generally bouncing around in its own personal bubble.

Unfortunately, the real world's personal bubble doesn't bounce very far from home, and only contains a few score other people, so it has to get its information from mass media.

The real world doesn't see the devastation caused by short sighted politicians and greedy corporations in their quest for power and money until its personal bubble is affected. And because the world revolves slower in the real world, by then it's too late to stop it.

The real world elected our current administration based on what it perceived was moral values. Mass media told the real world that moral values were God and Country, period. God's wrath on the wicked, and devotion to Country, right or wrong, no questions asked. Nothing about feeding the hungry, healing the sick, housing the homeless, protecting the weak.

Now the real world is getting hungry, sick, poor and weak.

Soon, all it'll have left is God and Country. And as it becomes totally dependent on Country for its basic existence, and the Great American Dream becomes extinct, it will only have God.

Then it will truly be like the real world of the Old Testament.
