Denial is not a Solution

Many insist there is no problem -- as their way of solving it.  But the problems never go away, and naturally grow worse -- though they go into denial, more and more about those realities. Eventually there is a full disconnect -- from the realities and one's explanation of it.  Ultimately, nothing is related to anything else anymore, and the explanations (excuses), take on a life of their own, because it has no tie to any reality anymore.

That's what people and a culture are like, when they prefer their wishful-thinking over the actuality of their actual circumstances -- until they can no longer deny or ignore the many catastrophes -- that seem to have come up quite without warning and deserving.  "Randomness just happens," they will proudly proclaim, as though that explained everything.

Especially in Paradise.  Naturally, there are too many "homeless" and "poor," living in Paradise -- as though such a thing were possible.  True paradise would be the elimination and absence of those problems -- and not just the denial of them, wishing it would make it so.  As long as they are denied, it is not possible to solve any of them -- but once they are recognized, is the foundation for a solution.  Solutions must be based on a foundation in reality -- and not simply the desire that things were not as they actually are -- with no way out, nobody who believes any problem can be solved anymore, because nobody had done so, in many decades now.

It even came to be believed, that the job of everyone now, was to perpetuate the problems -- as their own job security.  What would the world be like -- if it wasn't for all the problems to keep idle minds and hands busy?

But the true work of any society, is to improve life beyond what it has been before -- and not just repeat it, for time immemorial -- even if it is "the way we've always done things" -- as the fall from grace and perfection, many believe we began from.  And ever since, it's been downhill.  

In certain places, that can be the reality -- rather than the improvement most feel are their birthright now.  Unless they choose badly, one of the few places where the quality of life seems to be in decline, among those who do have a choice among the many.  Just the belief that there can be no place on earth better, prevents one from considering and exploring the alternatives.  Those who can, are obviously at an advantage -- over those who are certain, nothing could be better -- even as badly as things are for them.

Improvement is nearly impossible under those conditions -- as the "work" of society, has become the perpetuation of their problems, rather than any resolution of any of them -- which drives off the "fit," as their means to survival.  The "fit," are those who can see the truth as the truth, and the truth in the false -- and be able to tell the difference -- rather than deny, that there can be any difference.
