What's The Buzz? Tell Me What's a Happenin'
This is a call to all sociologists, poly sci majors, history majors, and any others with any factual ideas on how we got to this point in our society (nationaly & locally, but focused on locally) , followed by any plausible concepts on how we alter this course.
We have statutes in place from the city level all the way thru to the national level concerning common nuisanses, rodent infestation, refuse, dangerous animals, overtly loud noise, unsafe dwellings, abandoned vechicles, and the list goes on ad infinitum. So here I pose a twofold question;
Why is there no will at any level to enforce these laws beyond a letter of reprimand and a slap on the wrist?
And why, if there was no will to do so at the time of inception, did we go thru the process in the first place?
As I type these two, a couple more come to mind;
Are we as a people, really so naive, callous & apathetic that we will accept from our elected representatives any token response to our concerns over any serious issue?
Or, as was proported by a TV critic several years ago when "Roxanne" was the #1 show on the air, have we as a society become so dummied down that we view this inaction as acceptable norm?
PLEASE! Someone convince me it isn't so! Tell me what we can do, nay, must do as citizens individually and collectively to reverse this trend. Show me light at the end of this tunnel!
Discuss, discuss, discuss!
