I agree that hope is necessary ingredient to happiness; many people give up, and even children commit suicide without knowing what their future holds.
-Or caring what the neighbors will think... What it takes to get kids to perform at their best is a stark realization of what reality holds for them... They must accept great debt for an education which makes them a slave of those with the ability to help them pay it off.... Then they have to sell one third or more of their lives not counting the cost or the time on the road out of every five days... And they must give the best of every day to the boss, and save only seconds for their children or spouse... And through it all they must guard their words, and keep their politics is tune with the bosses, or secret, and climb the ladder of sucess looking out for the assholes above, and the cut throats below, all the time passing every extra moment dreaming of payday, vacation, quiting time or retirment if they think they can afford it... There is no affinity, no brotherhood, no common cause, no soliderity... It is every man for himself, and woman, dog eat dog and dog eat ****, and anxiety without limit or end... No wonder so few are happy, and what little wonder that people prefer death to drudgery, heartbreak, and dishonor... Most kids are idiots, but the ones who believe it will never be different and never get better have a brain in their head....Who cares what the neighbors think... Death is sweet victory for the free... Those who sell themselves and their lives for little more than the chance to reproduce their suffering in a new generation are whores... Can a whore be happy???
