Hello all my name is jared and I grew up in a very much blood is thicker than water true to the southern U.S family values. But sometimes when I get to wondering about, whats wrong with the world an interesting idea comes to mind. For me US and THEM, exclusion Identifying with ones group so much so that youll kill for an idea. So where dose that start well it starts with the family we are born into exclusiveness the cause for war. Until we can learn to co exist we will be a doomed what say you ats what is the "problem" with the world and how do you fix it? Thats my liberal rant for the day

The basic family is where you learn the base of all things, including respect for others. Too many people these days are busy learning only respect for self. If you raise a society of people without family, you raise a society of isolated individuals who have never learned that basic level of attachment to family and respect for others as human beings.

I would have thought the opposite is true, that modern society has been designed to destroy the family, the building block of all society.

Watching the cattle in the fields, it reminded me of modern Britain where the women live without men, except for breeding purposes, afterall they are 'married to the state' when it comes to 'support'. They have children with various men who are without responsibility and 'redundant' when it comes to supporting their own children properly. Like cattle in a field with numerous children of unidentified fathers, the women provide children to be the future slaves.........unthinking, unknowing and totally distracted.

It is almost the norm in places like Liverpool and many inner city areas, don't know about where you live.

Modern society is without a moral compass and without value or values. It has no understanding of where it came for and no care for where it is heading. Like cattle unaware of their purpose and their fate, they chew the cud of Facebook, Twitter and celebrity gossip.

Does this prevent wars because of 'no cause to support'?

No. It encourages wars in theory as a means of culling the 'unnecessary' males just as in farming. Few males are required to keep the cattle 'breeding'.

Is the world a big 'farm'?

Sometimes, I wonder!

Which is the best value? Culture or family? As a scout I would say easily family.For the most part at least THEY are fixed points. Society is an extremely fickle bitch. It's like marrying a woman for her beauty,only to find yourself a stepping stone in the future.

The problem is that people have become blind to the fact that their family extends to every person on the planet.

Nationalism verses Nepotism is a interesting question. On one hand, you have a sort of common bond with family, but your family lives in a nation, Serving 2 ideals that at times may run against one another.

THAT would depend on the family in question.I was an Airforce officer's youngest and of course,with the John Wayne upbringing Family and country are core. Values are set by events in our lives,I would very vehemently grab the OP and tell him to be his OWN man,but that is extremely hard if one has a weak will.

destruction of the family is the name of the NWO game.

the fed will be your father.

the fed will provide you brothers & sisters.

only the fed approved ideals will be tolerated.

...what is the "problem" with the world and how do you fix it?

Those in control don't want it "fixed"...

The elite want it DESTROYED.

That's where God steps in.

He has a much better idea...

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." ~ Revelation 21:1-4

Society has destroyed the modern family.

im thinking there are two ways to see it
the state wants to destroy the familly to become the family the op thinks is the basis for nationality
which goes from the extreme of the beverly hillbillies (no offence i love the BHs ) to the extreme of the nazi or communist state

so i think both sides are correct
its a two step

sandf op for discussion's sake

Thinking that "family" is comprised of only the people you're linked to by blood, is the real problem in today's world.

The old saying: "It takes a village to raise a child" is the truest truth ever spoken... it branches out and impacts so many different facets of life and society as a whole, it's not even funny.

We, as a community of peoples, lost touch with that concept many generations ago.

Uhhhhhhhhhh . . . in a word . . .


The family unit has been demonstrated over many millenia to be the BEST unit for human relationships--as well as culture and society--ever to occur.

That the best can be distorted, mangled and twisted into destructiveness is no surprise. The enemy of our souls is also the fierce enemy of the family as demonstrated by the globalists' full court press to destroy the family the last 60+ years.

Sick families are not a good criteria to measure family merit with.

It's much wiser to see what supremely healthy families are like and the fruit of healthy families

compared to

sick families and the fruit of sick families.

The hallmarks of sick families shows the same evils as the evils of any individuals and groups of any kind across all cultures, societies and geographies.

Lumping sick families in with healthy families and judging all equally

is about as . . . clever . . .

as lumping poison mushrooms, poison dart frogs, blueberries, mangoes, fried chicken and whale snot together and making a generic judgment of all of it as suitable food, or not.

I dont belive in nationality I believe we should co exist that we should engineer desirable qualitys and eliminate undesirable qualitys. I believe we should head to the stars and stop bsing and overpopulating our finite resource earth I belive family is the way we are manipulated through nationality I believe my family is an achetypical representation of the red blooded american I also belive weve lost many loved ones to this type of thinking. I belive us and them dose not exist and that crimes say alot more about our sociological maturity than it dose the individual did I express this clearly enough in the op or not

The globalist oligarchy has


cast foes against each other in all the wars at least since the French Revolution--including the French Revolution.

THEY have played all sides against the middle for their manipulative goals of establishing the literally satanic world government predicted for our era 2,000 years ago.

Blame them for the evils and destructiveness. BTW THEY are determined to

DESTROY THE FAMILY and to make children reared in test-tubes--essentially--by THE STATE.

How do you think you'd like THAT?

They have already largely succeeded in taking children away from parents long enough to brain wash them in behalf of THE STATE--kindergarten thru univ.

Check their quotes out here:

As to coexistence . . . "What fellowship has light with darkness?"

Expecting a satanist and a Pentecostal to be constructive buddies together is ignorant foolishness.
