Shining a light! Yes, we are all about shining a light into the darkness.
The average American pays scant attention to issues in society because they don’t see how a particular issue may affect them personally. They also ignore issues because they may sound too difficult or complicated to understand so they tune them out. In both cases, people can be missing out on understanding what is going on in their personal world, effectively leaving them powerless to take appropriate actions to help themselves.
But life IS action.
Feeling powerless can snowball into a cycle of exaggerated fear and depression that deepens with inaction. I know from my own personal experience that, in this state, even the smallest tasks seem huge. It also shrinks our perception making the circumstances we are facing seem monumental, even insurmountable. When we are stuck in this downward spiral, it is difficult, often impossible, to take the kind of actions that can help us to recover our normal equilibrium.
For many years, this was me—that is until I got sick and tired of that victim I’d become. The road out of that deep valley of despair was a long, gradual journey. Once I’d gotten far enough from the edge of that abyss, there was no turning back.
The ‘What The Hell Happened?’ website is the fruit of that difficult trek to better understanding myself and the world. I have found great strength and a new zest for life as I have come to understand what is going on in our world. It is my great hope that what we present here will help you to find the strength and zest for life that is all our inheritance. I also hope the information on the site enables others to shorten their own journey out of the dark and lessen the pain of not understanding our world.
With this said, on ‘What The Hell Happened?’ we have identified what we believe is one of the core issues to why our world is in such a mess—wealth inequality. We understand that there are many other pressing issues that need our attention but we start with this one because we believe it is the foundation and the source from which most of the ills of society flows.
It is clear that our scope must broaden and will broaden as we learn more about ‘What The Hell Happened?’ through our research and findings. As we discover more information that adds significantly to this project, we will write it with simplicity and clarity in the same form as presented on the site and post it here on our Blog.
