"We may feel genuinely concerned about world conditions, though such a concern should drive us into action and not into a depression."

Reader comments about this quote:
Action like giving food and money to governments? Those in power will not starve and will become rich. Action like attacking a government? We should not die for the freedom of another country. We should take care of ourselves, not interfere with other governments.

    I agree with the sentiment -- stop complaining and do something about it.

    I am continually chagrined by those who say they are so depressed or angry about world affairs-currently the cause of our govt.-that they have stopped reading or paying any attention to the news. That is the part that is depressing.

    I might add to feeling genuinely concerned about world conditions, one would be well served to actively seek facts and absolute truth outside their/our comfort levels, prejudices and indoctrinated based perceptions. And speaking of perceptions — it is a personal perception that depression is a great activator of NON-activity. A journey into the light is generally a phenomenal anti-depressant.
