People should focus on whats really important to us in the here and now.
As far as there always being a Rome or what not...well, We had a vacuum after the fall of Rome...it was the dark ages.
I would prefer a transition into something thought out and a step up if the US were to lose its global position. I wouldnt mind it if the US went back
to being an agricultural based country. We seemed happier then.
I wouldnt mind as long as the world doesnt descend into a "dark ages" type mentality.
TO be honest, I like the world as it is now. Even with all its vices....there is allot I would change, the population size for one. I used to be VERY
liberal and VERY anti NWO.
Now, I see the benefit of a reduced world population. We are doing exactly nothing with billions of people that we cant all feed, educate and house. I
am not PRO NWO, but I am starting to see things half way. If the source was more trustworthy I would be a freaking poster child for it on certain
I like that the US is powerful because it serves its own interests and those of the west, BUT it also serves some noble ventures. Are they enough to
justify it all? I dont know, I just like the fact that we are making progress as a species. I would like for our greatest technological achievements
and otherwise to be other than F-22s and strong geo-positioning ...I will take it, but would prefer a mission to mars 20 years ago for
colonization....an effort now to prolong life spans, and all that. I am increasingly trans-humanist..
Is that NWO? Sure, but I still dont identify with the worse aspects of it. Those "scary" aspects are DANGERS of the brave new world, not certain
aspects that WILL come about. Most likely sure, considering the source, but nothing is written in stone. Things change....People are human after
There is allot of potential in the US and the west. Do we have flaws, HELL YEAH. Who doesnt though.
A mature person sees things without the childish "good guy" VS "bad guy" mindset.
There are no innocents. Only kids and they turn into grow ups eventually.
