The Two ‘hostile’ habits.

Begun:
(1) Historicly ?
Possibly even before
the 5000 years-ago 1st Militantly Aggressive State.
(2)
Currently for “us” ?
Now.

Simply put,

on the one-hand we would all agree
there are –
and even that “I have …”
too-many
“bad” habits.

What we wouldn’t have agreed about habits
is the one ‘occupying’ the other hand,
namely “too many of our longstanding
“good” habits !
which when made conscious
can see us already
“slippery-slope=sliding”
straight into
“War”.

—————————–
The ‘reason’ why many “good” habits
can “turn-hostile”is also quite simple
and one instance alone should suffice
to show us how such a “good” habit
can turn out to be “hiddenly-hostile”

HISTORICLY
Before World War 1,
smoking was “good”
“in fashion” –
and a sign of “adulthood” – and of being “grown-up”;
yet
quite ‘medically-factually’,
during WW1
smoking by soldiers in the front-line trenches
was ‘compulsory’ –
and a kind of esprit-de-corps and “last-supper”
comradeship-huddle
Shared-smoking
for the last few minutes-
before the men were to ‘go over the top’
in a life-or-death bayonet charge,
was both a ‘standing-order’
and
a ‘last-rite’ –
in a real sense
in place of the Holy Communion – the Mass.
————–
The real reason for such support for smoking
was the support that smoking gave the men –
in the form of “instant invigoration”
namely by
Nicotine
which is rapidly absorbed directly into the blood from the lungs.

ANOTHER “UNBELIEVABLE” GOOD-HABIT “GONE-WRONG”

Under the Domain of Procrastination also comes
“Workplace40 Career or Job single-focussing” –

which amounts to
“hiding-under-the-bedclothes”

as far as both
Natural Evolutionary Nurturance
and
Non-Working-Hours Lifeplace128
Holistic Lifestyling & Sustainworthy-Democratic-Governance
are as necessary in their respective Timeframes.
———–
Which,
it is becoming more and more evident,
we should have begun
Educationally, Governancially, and Peersonally-Voluntarily
Tackling
in-a
Big-Way
decades,
even centuries,
ago.
===========================================================
NOW –
BEING ‘FORCED’ TO ‘CHANGE OUR WAYS” –

and not only forced by the Covid-19 extinction hreat,
nor by “Climate-Worsening” alone.
nor by the even greater Threat from
The Growing Shortfall
between Earth’s-Lifesupports
and Human-Civilisation’s
Demands – “ballooning”
way-way-way “off top” and “off the Map”.
