We should be ready to move on, you are right - we have the potential for this sort of thing. I really get disgusted in knowing what we could
accomplish if so much was not wasted. We'd be colonizing the moon, maybe cured cancer, who knows if all the trillions people spend on pointless
materialistic crap was put towards that. Wouldn't it be worth it? Wouldn't that give us pride as a people? Give us value?
Even though people have the potential, they don't realize it and it's retarted. There always needs to be some way to ensure that people pull their
weight in society. Money is a great way of doing that. Before money there were way too many people coming up with excuses not to pull their weight,
and society suffered. Though now rampant welfare does the same thing, defeating the purpose.
At this point there are times I feel like we'd just be lucky to survive. On the other hand I know we have the potential for truly great things and
if not that, meager things and great happiness, happiness is always possible no matter what. It's very frustrating to look at the world today. I
mean even now trying to argue against unnecessary wars and irresponsible spending, and basic robbery of future generations, basic idea/creativity
enslavement, etc. fighting these things is a full time job. Forget what I dream, all the positive things we should be trying to accomplish and have
no excuse not to be doing.
