This is why I did not post it in your first thread because I thought it would come across, like I say you are doing redundant things.

I just wanted to say that wikipedia has such informations, too, for the other members who are interested.

Everyone seems to be caught up with politics these days and forgets what this site was about back in the day , But it seems to be killing the C/T forums everywhere you look .

Sometimes I go to the archive and go through some years and you are right, most of the time it is UFO, some asteroid killing us soon but very few political stuffs.

I think in the end many things go back to politics because politics and industry is where the money is. It affects us all so I understand that there is big potential for conspiracies in politics.

But this here is just
"you are wrong"
"no you are"
most of the time.

I am actually struggling now to think back to when the people were united and it was us against the Government , Now they sit back in their Ivory towers and laugh out loud at the carnage and division all while sipping Champagne

It should not be any group against another.

We, I mean the whole planet, each soul, need to think individual but then, also, like an ant hill at the same time. There will always be things like group thinking, because somewhere, everyone has their common traits.

I highly recommend the Rick and Morty -hold on a sec- episode with Unity. Just duckduckgo "rick morty unity" it if you are interested, not sure if the rules allow this. There is a deeper sense to get, above all the juvenile things.

Wrote a summary but deleted it to not spoil anything for those who do not have seen it.
