The rage revolution

On the program 20/20 on ABC television a few weeks ago, the whole program focused on the very sad fact, that a whole lot of people appear to be regularly exploding with anger, with deep rage for a variety of different reasons, and in all types of situations. On the program, they referred to it simply as the rage revolution, and it is a rather sad, and yet very real element of our present day so-called modern society at the beginning of the 21st Century. We so very often refer to periods of time in the past as being much more primitive in nature, but my friend, the actual behavior of a whole lot of people who allow themselves to get completely out of control thus exploding into a fit of rage, usually for rather insignificant matters in the overall scheme of things, states loud and clear, that we are going backward instead of forward with our so-called modern day 21st century civilization.
The most prominent, easily seen element of the rage revolution can be witnessed on the highways and byways of America, and indeed other countries around the world as motorists get into terrible confrontations with each other, so often for really ridiculous, trivial matters, which usually end up with a heated war of words, which can and indeed do in far too many instances erupt into physical altercations, which all too frequently end tragically. There are also increasing cases of domestic violence being revealed just about everywhere, and also cases of coaches on sports fields being excessively violent toward players. It's all very sad, and indeed completely unspiritual.
So, we've established the fact, that we do have a very real problem, the rage revolution is indeed a sad reality and not just a figment of our imagination. So, the sensible question to ask now is, how do we counteract it? Well, if it were up to me, I'd firstly ban all violent programming from TV, the movies and the Internet, particularly for young children.
Secondly, I'd introduce courses in meditation into the schools, government departments, businesses, and all sporting clubs. When people, young and old, start regularly meditating every single day, they will slowly but surely become very peaceful people, who will in no way have any inclination whatsoever to be in any way violent toward anyone, no matter what the circumstances are. Yes indeed, we simply must, wherever in the world we may reside, begin to build peaceful people, before we destroy our planet.
