These debate headlines presume there are arguments on both sides, as if they are somehow equal, balanced or valued on similar scales.
Like abundance vs. scarcity.
Why is it we tend to give equal weight, give any weight at all or concede that one is a fair and opposite reflection of the other?
Our views aren’t balanced, are they?
This is black and white stuff, with no room for any shade of grey.
Our world view and our personal view – is one or the other. Mine would be: infinite, unlimited and abundance. I can argue all day why I am right and anyone with an alternate view is dead wrong.
Is our potential unlimited, are possibilities infinite and is abundance not only around us but far superior to scarcity? Why then should we limit our selves to a finite and scarce number of possibilities in our lives.
It isn’t that simple, is it?
Me right, opposite-view folks – all wrong.
I like the thought … but realistically, others are different, others see things differently, and they have no idea they are wrong no matter how hard I try to convince them.
Sure, we are born, live, and then die.
Everything else is possibility, possible.
Unless we don’t care or try.
Then everything is impossible.
So little of this has to do with the real world, and so much of it is only in our head, our own brain, our own drive to thrive.

morning walk: 7C/44F, clear, calm, Gusta wanting to drag behind, enthralled by every smell – I wanted to sprint on ahead. I won, but my shoulder is sore from pulling on that leash.
