Humanity in my opinion is going through its growing pains, it will be ultimately up to us to decide wether we go out with a whimper or go and conquer
the freaking galaxy. In our short history of existence we have managed to explore every planet in our solar system and right now we have probes
entering interstellar space.
Remember folks just a hundred years or so ago we didn't even have airplanes, so who knows what awesome things we could accomplish if just for once we
put our differences aside and pooled our collective intellect to better our species and to save the beautiful planet we call home.
I do not let stupid politicians dictate how I feel about life, we all have a choice to whether or not watch TV, have a cellphone or go shop at wal
mart or use Facebook.... no one puts a gun to our head and force us to do that stuff.
If you want to eat organic food there are organic markets that sell that kind of food.
If you want to eat the cattle that you raised then you can buy cattle and raise them and slaughter them yourself
If you don't like watching TV...guess what? You don't have to!
Don't life Facebook? Simple..don't use it!
Don't like cellphones! Simple! Don't get one.
Come on folks are you all that mentally weak that you let some corrupt politicians make you feel hopeless?
I think that a lot of you would love to live out a post apocalyptic fantasy of yours, but I think most of you would love to come back to reality once
you realized that help wouldn't come from anywhere if you or your family got sick or if your family got assaulted by a group of thugs.
When I think about how far humanity has come from just a thousand years ago...it just blows my mind all of the stuff we have accomplished.
The progress we have made in the medical field is astonishing...right now we can treat a lot of cancers and make them go into remission. That was
impossible just a few decades ago.
Who knows what the future holds for us? Are we going to let some petty disagreements be the demise of our species or are we going to put them aside
and go conquer the stars?
I really do want to believe it will get better, I do, but at this point it looks like we're going to either destroy the planet or ourselves before we
ever make it into space or onto other planets. We can't even take care of our own planet, what makes you think we'd take care of others? We'd go to
another planet, see all its resources then have dollar signs in our eyes and start exploiting it just like we've done with this one.
We are losing our rights faster than we have in recent memory. Our government spends billions to spy on its own citizens. Europe is about to
collapse and there are wars being fought throughout the Middle East.
There are a lot of things to be excited about, but it seems with every technological advance we lose more of our humanity. The younger generation
actually has withdrawal symptoms if they have to spend too long away from their electronic devices.
I am not saying it is all bad, but I don't think it is about to get better. Hopefully we will fight back as citizens against overbearing and
overreaching governments and take back our rights and freedoms.
Right now individual liberty is a thing of the past. If you watch Star Trek it is like the Borg Collective is trying to assimilate anything and
everything and wants to snuff out any bit of individuality that is left.
It is all about one big homogeneous society that thinks and acts as one. People were never meant to live like that...individuality is the key to
happiness as is the freedom to express ourselves.
I do appreciate your positive outlook, but I just don't see it right now.

A for effort but this isn't 1986 anymore and from the look of things, it will never be again.
The maniacs have taken over the asylum. The Negative forces in the world have never been stronger and at home 50% of our population are asleep or have
bought into the Neville Chamberlain affect and cannot even bring themselves to wake up and admit that evil is taking over this world and they will do
nothing to stop it. Hell, they support it directly and indirectly with their Willful Ignorance.

I believe many of the problems in our society are self correcting. They are currently artificially sustained and will collapse on themselves. You
can't just look at whats happening in the moment, you have to look at the patterns and cycles that play out thru out history. The problems of today
become the crusade of the next generation.
