Are We Content – Satisfied? Are We Content – Filling?

November 19, 2013


Let’s play with words:
Content: Are we content? Are we discontent?

Content: As in the pages of a book, or the people of a country.

Content: Are we content with the content of our country?
Are we dis-content with the content of our country?
Are we dis-content with the dis-content (unfilling) of our country?

To be “content” is a condition … satisfied, happy, desires fulfilled.
“Content” – noun – means what is contained in – perhaps a country.

Think of our homeland, our American dream, our melting pot, our people, our children, think “us” & “we”, think of the people in our country as content.

What is the content of our country?
What was the content of our country?
What will be the content of our country?
Will the content of our country ever be the same again?

The question is: Are we content or discontented with the content or dis-content of our country?

Dis-content – unfilled – is used here to refer to our infrastructure, schools/education, health care, poverty, homelessness, abandoned veterans, gun violence, domestic wars, foreign wars, to name a few problems which are causing our discontent.

While we are busy spying, warring, killing, abandoning veterans, women and children, violating human rights,

and engaging in all manner of atrocities in foreign countries our own country is seeing its contents dis-contented.

Perhaps our discontent is rooted in the fact that “the love of money is the root of all evils”. The 1% has it all and they are squeezing the blood and oxygen out of the 99%. Someone should tell the 1% that God does not accept money, gold, silver, oil, mineral etc. He accepts good deeds, charity, even promises to hungry sick children, orphans, widows, and abandoned veterans.

Our homeland is a mess. Instead of concentrating on spying & security, how about if we turn our attention to poverty, food, medicine, and the needs our own little children?
