The question is what is the goal? Where does humanity want to be? Do we need a monetary system? What laws serve to improve our lives verses repressing our freedom? Where do we draw the line between a free society and anarchy? The solution is not an easy one to be sure.

England against Iceland, Obama against McCain, Wall Street against Main Street, each blaming the other, WHILE THE REAL CULPRITS sit back, laugh and wait for the wars to start.
Who are those that are sitting back and waiting?

I remember that we had quite a strong "voice" when congress focused on the bailout bill.
50% of us said no, and the other 50% said "Hell No". They passed it anyway, flagrantly displaying their lack of concern for anything you ever tell them. We should all have packed our bags, gone into congress and thrown those who voted "yes" straight out the tallest windows. Then we should have done the same to that Nazi in the whitehouse, who DARED threaten us with martial law for not approving his robbery of us.
Your method is quite classic. Make a statement nobody in their right mind could disagree with and then as you form your group, lead the discussion in a manner that lets people believe it is their own idea's and you are just another Bozo on the bus. No more than I would expect from a Professor. Superiority Complexes seem to be epidemic among that Peer Group.
I have to wonder, do you show the same disregard for others beliefs that you do for the wishes of those who own this Private Board? Saves you the bother of all the years of work to build this board, when you can just simply ignore the owners rights and treat their wishes like so much nonsense.
I agree fully with the first post of this thread of yours. Later it however becomes obvious that you are just being sly about trying to start your own group on ATS and the T&C be damned. Character is everything. We don't need another leader without it in this world. Instead of having an open discussion, you are carefully manipulating the discussions direction to achieve your goal. In the end I suspect the only idea's that you will agree with, will be your own.
In the recent thread Mike Singh started on India's new launch to the moon... the VERY FIRST reply was a racist remark against India and had to be removed. Half the posts in the thread turned into an argument over India spending money in space instead of feeding their poor.
