World Without Authority

Hey guys. Its been another slow week so I thought that it would be a good idea to share a little of what I've been think of over the last little while.

Recently, I have become concerned about the level of respect for Authority that I have been seeing in the world. Never before have I seen, so many people opposed to their governments. (This is not a statement of whether or not you oppose the war or not, but is a statement towards the fact that people seem to be fighting each other.)

Even the way we drive shows this warring of people that exists in society. People do not drive the speed limit anymore, nor do they consider the other drivers or the pedestrians as was what happened in the past.

There are two crosswalks by my neighborhood and every time I cross at one (without fail) there is someone that will drive through the crosswalk without stopping. Even though we have rules against speeding and driving though crosswalks when people are crossing people seem to still do it with little regard for these laws.

Maybe it was because I was younger, but it seemed like in the past we were more at peace with each other and that we all tried to obey the laws that were out there more than we do now. But this is the way that I see it. How do you see it? I would like to hear your thoughts on this, as I hope I am not the only one that feels this way about our society. Then again, maybe I am.
