Take Your Time

The world moves fast. Faster than it ever has in the history of humankind. Nations have risen and fallen in mere weeks, instead of the slow collapse of centuries it used to take during the Victorian era and before it. Our world today never stops moving. Hell, ask the President about urgency. But we must all remember that human society may be speeding up, but history has a pace, life has a pace, and to speed it up will only bring about the troubles we fear quicker. Afraid of economic collapse? Rush massive spending. Fear nuclear war? Rush appeasement. Fear sickness? Don't take a sick day. Fear divorce? Rush your relationship into the ground.

The President may enjoy working at breakneck speed, but we need to step back once in a while and take in what we've done and what we've missed... like vast amounts of money and common sense.

For the sake of my sanity... slow the hell down!
