I see and remain aware of all the doom and gloom, I just deal with it differently then you
1. Where did I ever say I don't have hope? I am blessed with more things to provide hope than most people, and I value them. That doesn't stop me
taking a real perspective on the problems generated uniquely by humankind on this planet. In fact I am more hopeful about the future, and evolution,
than anyone I could nominate on this board. Most people are fixated on the here and now and the daily grind, some on how wonderful they are, some on
their specific interests which are no doubt important to them.
2. I am hedonistic and enjoy providing pleasure for others. I share nothing about my business life and only a little about my lifestyle with a few
people here. Again, having a focus on simple pleasures doesn't stop me having a perspective on the future.
3. I have never posted in doom and gloom. In fact, you will observe at least 20 times when dragonrider or some other person has an outburst of
paranoia and assembling of their unique jigsaw puzzle, that I state some valid assumptions and facts as to WHY there will not be a massive terrorist
attack in the US tomorrow or next week. I am rooted sufficiently in reality to be able to discern true potentials from scaremongering.
The end of the world is nigh, because the earth will die one day, and the sun is well into its middle age.
My hope is that our species does not accelerate its own planet's destruction.
Take a look outside yourself and the love of those nearest and dearest to you, step away from family values for a minute, and examine the state of the
planet. It doesn't take all that much effort. It takes much more to do something about it.
