We are all funny animals – we are being easily distracted. Media today turn our heads and attention every each way they want. There is generally nothing wrong with that, this is why we have media. We should though keep our eyes on important issues and keep other information in perspective.
How do we judge important is, in itself, very important. Is American property market bubble important? Undoubtedly yes. Is a banking crisis important? Or European financial crisis? Of course those are important issues. Is change of the climate on the whole planet important? Yes. Now put it perspective – what is more important, is the planet, of course.

Put it in perspective and realize how small things such as banking crisis or European financial meltdown really are. The future – the future of mankind – is happening now, while we are busy counting euros.
