This is a soap box.

This is a soap box.

This is what it would look like if I stood on it.

This is my soap box speech.

 

More work. Less convenience. A simpler life.

That’s what it is all about.

 

We live in a world where technology and science have come so far that our most basic needs are handled for us. Our tech can read for us, write for us, educate us, and entertain us. It can think for us. It can do our jobs for us, create our food for us, monitor our health for us, and fight our battles for us. It holds our knowledge, our fears, our best moments, and our worst indiscretions. It is our connection to other countries, different people, and all of our “closest” friends and family. It is how we communicate, interact, live.

 

We have become voyeuristic, self-absorbed, hateful, and slovenly. We don’t think for ourselves, act within reason, or face our consequences head on. We are afraid to get our hands dirty, afraid of each other, and afraid of the world at large. We put more faith in our governments than our gods, our tech than our minds, and our media than our loved ones. We have become slaves to modern living and we are quickly forgetting the basic behaviors that have brought us this far.  We are devolving as human beings.

 

Hard work cultivates appreciation, education, purpose, and passion.

In-person interaction creates civility, understanding, acceptance, and perspective.

And inconvenience breeds necessity, creativity, innovation, and evolution.

 

More work. Less convenience. A simpler life.

Real work. Real food. Real people. A life fulfilled.

 

That’s what we are all about.

I will get off of my soap box now. Thank you for reading.

 

Slàinte!
