Yesterday's relationships were all about trust and love; today's relationships are all about money and passion (read sex please).
It sure seems that way Emma.
Perhaps another symptom of what I call the 'disconnect syndrome' affecting society today. I wonder if it's a lack of 'need' that has created this culture? Generations ago, families and communities had
to work together just to survive. In this time of relative plenty, individuals can make it on their own with little help.
On a more positive note, at the local level here in Smalltown USA, folks seem to be awakening to the reality that by helping each other out, they actually help themselves the most! A local food co-op and farmers market provide nutritious homegrown food (though a bit expensive comparatively) that benefit buyer, seller, and community. It doesn't get much better than that.
I think it's hilarious that some folks have coined the term localvore
to describe such activity. That think it's some new magical concept when in fact that's how communities operated just 2 generations ago. The circle is nearly complete.
