It seems more common that many people would rather give up control of their lives in an effort to let the establishment take more core control. That in turn has people believing that they have someone to blame rather than themselves.
We all make a difference in our own lives and the lives of others. Therefore, think for yourself. Take back what you can control while trying not to control others. Apply the 30 Second Rule: Don't talk longer than 30 seconds. End the 30 seconds with an open ended question. Then actively listen.
