"There’s much evil, but there’s more light than darkness."

Human nature accepts the original sin and sorrow of obedience, slavery and captivity to a superior power requiring no explanation or rationalisation. Its myopic essence sees the superior power with a bigger and taller horse, carrying a huge sword followed by a thousand ferocious-looking soldiers.
What human nature fails to recognise, and refuses to acknowledge, is that the bigger and taller horse, the huge sword and the ferocious-looking soldiers represent a clear, convincing and cogent reflection humanity’s abated, unused, and subdued power and authority.
The hallucinating public accept the moniker as subjects and citizens of a superior power. The chilling effect of this mind-altering power is the secret that a superior power holds to sway public opinion. Just scare the living daylights of the people by planting and nurturing fear requiring the increase of police power.
This state of affairs and supposed stupor does not stop the anti-establishment crowd that secretly plans ways and means to disestablish the superior power. Then comes an invading power, like Japan during WW2, overthrowing the existing superior power in the hope of reforming mindsets.
The groping for solutions to socioeconomic and geopolitical realities must begin in every stage of learning, but as Mark Twain quipped, “don’t let college in the way of education.” The existing education system forced upon the unsuspecting population is another superior power exhibiting unwelcome authority. Happens in every regime and jurisdiction. Home-schooling under the constitutional protection of freedom of religion became a powerful exit strategy without state sanctions and penalties.
There is a flip side to this when you find no solutions to a problem because it is not a problem to be solved but rather a bitter truth that is to be accepted. Being that we are expert architects of our destinies, we must continue to learn every day, and not to let age become an excusable barrier. Let iron sharpen iron.
The superior power is also groping for solutions to help keep itself in power. Meanwhile the people are groping for ways and means to contain the malaise. The people find it extremely difficult to understand and recognise that they are the initial and final problem which grants the superior power to find solutions easier and faster.
