A lot of us in Venezuela grew up with the idea of one day becoming the best nation in the world and that basically the world belonged to us. Althought I did bought it, even before the crisis I knew that there were a lot of things in our society that were wrong and that dream wouldn't come true anytime soon. Still, I respect those patriotic ideals a lot. Because of the crisis a lot of people eventually grew cynical of them, but I'm too arrogant of a patriot like for that to happen to me, I'm the most cruel as well.
The idea of one day making the ideals I grew up with come true is the reason why I do everything. Unlike the people who came before me, I'm sure I can make a difference, so I live
more or less by a stoic way of life, accepting the world for what it is and taking the time to think about solutions to everyday problems. It even helps me feel spiritually refreshed.
I don't know what got you guys into the conspiracies, but my advice is that whatever problems you may have, take the time to reflect about it and try to find solutions to it. There is a lot of people in the sub who are willing to listen. You guys can count on me too.
