I remember retail stores closing at 8pm maybe later in bigger cities.
Those days were not as chaotic as life is now. Yet, the genie is out of the bottle and she cannot be stuffed back into it. So, with the empty genie bottle sitting on the fireplace mantel we must progress forward while ensure we do are best to regulate society in such a way that chair cannot merge it's ugly head.
However, that is one solution there may be others.
Yet, I prefer to say everything is cyclical and organic. Translation we are an overpopulated world and mother nature is shaking us off this planet via dieses, natural disasters & climant changes like the human race was a bad case of fleas. Well, in a way we are the cancer of this planet and while we can be benign or malignant.
I somewhat feel we are entering a malignant stage marching towards destruction.
However, as the apostles creed in the Methodist church ends with The phrase WORLD WOTHOUT END. AMEN AMEN.
I have always taken that to me we the survivors of darkness inherit the earth to rebuild from the ashes.
