An anonymous reader commented on More Positive Thinking
Sure... I suppose that's an ok comment if you're sitting in a bar watching life go by outside and you don't have family to take care of. But if you do have a family, and a home and things that you still value in life, then you want to take an "active part" in protecting your family and home and not just let things continue to happen as they are now. Things can and do change for the good through the efforts of well-meaning people, no matter how difficult it may seem at times. Our children still need to go to school everyday and our wives must do the shopping for the family. Even if some of us feel as though we are retired... we are NOT retired from life. These are two very different viewpoints, that depend on the lifestyle and goals of the reader.
