No Man is an island, with great power comes great responsibility. If you are not hunting and gathering, you most likely did not make it on your own. These are all common saying, but is it something we those who dwell in the United States have forgotten, i recently read this cracked article, http://www.cracked.com/blog/6-things-rich-people-need-to-stop-saying/ And it blew my mind, not what is being said. But that people rich or not may not have already known its truth, were as a society are inter connected. When we eat most of us don?t farm our own food, we don?t transport our own resources, and we purchase the finished products of many communities hard work. I am well aware I am as educated as I am because of my mother?s hard work, that my taxes pay for the things that keep society running, That my own Martial skills is a great deal due to my teachers and fellow students at my Dojo. yes I pay my way, but I am also not hunting and gathering. Have we as Americans forgotten that civilization is a collaborative effort?
