I suppose with global warming, everything is getting a bit heated up and emotions run high.
Or, is it simply boredom!
Change is in everybody's mind, and we all imagine that change will be for the better.
Some are so bored that change, any change, is better than the status quo.
When the status quo has existed for so long, it may take a sizeable amount of force to overcome the inertia. When that critical mass of change does occur, we will all be so surprised that it actually can happen that we may be numbed into not knowing what to expect.
In the face of uncertainty, we would all tend to over-provide and suddenly find ourselves over-burden by what we really do not need.
We will have to spend sometime to get ourselves out from under the load.
With change, we go from happy or unhappy equilibrium into disequilibrium and hopefully not further discontent.
We will have to exert a certain amount of force to stop the change. It is unlikely to be a one-step move and stop. Change could just roll on, like the waves.
The world today does look quite dramatic, when all the possible happenings in the world are concentrated into a small screen in a small window of waking time.
See what type of change we are going to get - the outer clothes or the inner wear.
