In a nutshell I don't (really) mind helping the people. (the system urgently needs reform but that is another discussion)
However I do NOT want to pay for someone's food and other perks so they can support an addiction to drugs or alcohol.
As for the privacy concerns--these people asked the Govt. to come help them. The Govt. isn't intruding in their lives, they asked them to be there!
asmeone, my apologies for any confusion I created. My general response was not directed toward you, though my reply was of your post. It was not at
all intended to be directed at anyone personally. I was expressing my views to the self destructive segregation that keeps us powerless due to
infighting and separatism. We accomplish nothing for ourselves by refusing to be united. This is all that stands in the way of our success? Together
we are an unstoppable force that could accomplish anything we choose. Sadly, only we are unaware of this? Those against us know it best of all.
Instead we refuse to realize this and continue to accept the wrong decisions made by those wanting to suppress us.
The fact is that we the powerful allow an inferior power to rule us. That ruler happens to be an evil force that thrives for suffering rather than
happiness? They choose to starve the world when they can easily feed it? They choose to perpetuate war and death rather than defeat it? The
overwhelming majority of the masses is directly opposed to these decisions. They are potentially far superior as well as a force of good. If good
would take this power to rule, it would be used to have no rule at all. Only to remain conscious and ready to assert it as necessary, not exert it to
harm. We are all equal as human beings on this planet. However, there are far more equals that desire good things for everyone and want decisions made
that heal. Those good intentions are capable of making all the decisions and always have been. Without unity things will stay the same, so evils
mission is to disrupt it. Ours is to deny them.
There task should logically be the more difficult, but they have always ruled? Regardless of that fact we have the capability to change that reality
in the name of righteousness. If we all chose to think of how to better ourselves this would be a simple task. That people do not want to be better is
our obstacle? That effort of thought was made by the author of this thread only it was not for our good? I'm confident they would rather use it for
all our good, but why was it not? If we refuse to acknowledge our faults they will never heal. If we are conditioned to do this we only need to be
aware of it happening. This is the message I'm trying to express. I may of offended you, but I think of you as my brother to fight with, not against.
I want to join with people, despite petty differences, who are like me. People that have the same wishes and needs.
There is opposition, but pretending it is each other makes us irrelevant. That's what I believe we should confront? I want us to confront this and
use it to encourage more of the same. Anyone, struggling with denial think about this. I'm not sure about everywhere, but in Michigan all houses
built in suburbs since the late sixties have no windows on their side walls! People used to lean out those windows to interact with neighbors. There
were no privacy fences or house alarms. Everyone relied on each other and were like family. Most people I know these days have never met any of their
neighbors? That's not good progress.
