Rx for America

Here is a comment after reading a Common Dreams article entitled "US Tumbles Down the World Ratings List for Life Expectancy".

I think the real problem with well-being in America today is MESMERISM. Too much sitting in front of TV, too much exposure to advertising based on fear of…whatever. Fear of death, illness, obesity, poverty, terrorism. All stoked by commercial and political interests.

I swear if people would just switch of their TVs, take a walk, meditate, get a life, read a book, think their own thoughts for a change - this can all be reversed.

One by one we can envision and embrace a whole new way of being alive on Planet Earth.
