Today we come together to save a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.
No one knows for sure how old he is, since his birth records were long ago. He selflessly devoted his life to service in schools; hospitals, homes, factories and offices, helping folks get jobs done without fanfare and foolishness.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
– If it’s to be it’s up to me;
– If you keep doing what you have always done you will always get what you have always gotten;
– Life isn’t fair;
– and maybe it is my fault.
Common Sense lives by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you earn), reliable parenting strategies (the adults are in charge, not the kids), and it’s okay to come in second.
He is in danger because good people have become ruled by the only out for themselves attitude and the desire to be famous not for achieving greatness but for achieving nothing.
Common Sense is losing ground as parents attack teachers for doing the job that they themselves have failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.
Common Sense almost gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense, Truth and Trust, Discretion, Responsibility and Reason are on the endangered list hunted by the 3 evil poachers of success
- I Want It Now
- Someone Else Is to Blame
- I’m A Victim
