Do you ever think we are lied to. We are told to go to college so we can get a great job with a big house and all this frivolous shit they assure us we need to be happy. They don't really tell us that we will be in huge debt once we get out of school. That the corporate job we will get is 80 hours a week and so that big house you can afford with that high paying job is more like a storage locker for all the cool shit you never get to play with.
Maybe you have a family but you never get to spend time with them because your at work in that cubical 80 hours a week to get your kids shit you think they have to have to be happy when what they really want is to spend time with you. We are told that hard work is beneath us. That people who spend their days living off the land with their families are backwards. All this technology that brings us into constant contact with each other has really made our relationships shallow. We glorify reality tv and degrade civility with real people.
Our American dream has been polluted and i'm just wondering who decided that this was better? Give me back the real American Dream please. Where hard work is a good thing. Family is important. And we don't need a bunch of shit to be happy.
I just want to live the life of simplicity. Small Shack of a House, as many kids as God blesses me with, & a garden to grow the food I desire.
