So gay hate and carbon dioxide are measurements of how good life is?

Done posting - I might as well go talk to a wall.

Dear Artemis, I think that you have just scratched the surface. We have come so far, but we have so much farther to go.
We are still savage, viral primates, with one foot in the wilderness of the past, and the other foot reaching to the stars.
I believe without a doubt that one day we will be what we should be.

I suppose you and I have different definitions of things being better.

More surveillance.
More Tyranny.
Less freedom.
Smaller middle class.
Wars based on agenda.
Hell, we can't even get food that's natural for our bodies.

I'm glad you enjoy your flat screen tv, though. Thumbs up to technology eh?


Gmo food (which I'm definatly concerned about) has stopped millions from starving.

More tyranny? Can you be specific please.

Less freedom? Specify please.

Smaller middle class with way cooler toys and far more options.... I'm with you on the middle class thing and how dangerous it is to continue the oligarchy ...


But I'm just saying keep it in perspective... Were just comming out of slavery, 2 world wars, segregation and priests molesting 10's of thousands of children... Don't fall for they're buzz word bull$((!T.


Communism is a different economic sceme, is it better then capitalism? I think not because of the ingenuity forward mobility breeds. Is communism evil? No it's just one if many economic plans. It's just a buzzword they've created to get a response.

Kings and queens, dictators, presidents, emporers,,,,,, none are inherently evil. They all depend on who you put in charge.

I'm way more on the fence about if we make it or not? We could get gamma rayed or asteroided even if we don't blow ourselves up.... As lucky as the earth is with all the Goldilocks zone stuff, you just know well finally shoot off nationwide nukes on the day a 2 mile asteroid hits. :p

Dear Artemis, I think that your problem is that you are way too involved in porn. Of course, by that I mean DOOM porn ( I had you here for a minute, didn't I?) The sun will rise tomorrow, the US $ will not crash, and the UN will not march you off to a FEMA camp. I am sure that you will not be "asteroided" (you should copyright that word, by the way), and your life is waiting for you to make the most of it. So damn it, do it!

Lol I'm a sceptic. The math says we will probubally face an extinction event. I'm not saying we won't survive it, but they happen.

I'm presuming you're referring to the Huns? Or have I missed something?

Looking into the past, we see all past governments and economies fail.

Thousands of years worth of failure.

The "Template" therefore must be failure.

Well as they say, "Stuff" happens. You won't be there to tell me you told me so, and I won't be there to deny it.

Meanwhile, there's no need to go for a short term lease on your penthouse apartment. Right?
