It took a holiday to ignite it, and it was soon put back down, but it happened. It can happen. It did happen. Because of the holiday the feeling of
the people changed. And after the holiday the feeling of the people changed back. But that doesnt change the fact that all it takes is a change of
heart to make this happen.
You have an amazing mind my friend and a true love of history too I see.
In fact they had a Christmas Truce each year after that, and the men really looked forward on both sides of the line to it, as it developed into a
One little known blip obscured is during the Christmas of 1916 the French Army was actually on the verge of collapse and near mutiny, and the English
Army was almost completely out of ammunition and England herself bankrupt.
The Germans knew this and at Christmas time they extended out the truce indefinately and offered England all the time in the world to decide if it
wanted to call off the war, no terms, but if France and England wanted to just call it quites, the German Army would return to their own borders, with
no harm, no foul, all the way around.
The Germans were really tired too of all the bloodshed, and felt certain that on such agreeable terms that England and France would jump at the
Then the Balfour Decleration came out of Parliment addressed to Lord Rothschild promising his Zionist movement land in Palestine, under the control of
the Ottoman Turks for a Jewish settlement, that changed the equation everywhere to this very day.
Rothschild dragged America into the war to bolster the thinning allied lines and mount an offensive, new lines of credit were issued to England and
France while all of a sudden Germany's Rothschild Control Central Bank froze hers.
Most people at the time couldn't even fathom what was going on and even President Wilson was flabbergasted and appauled when he found out all the
side deals and hidden treaties that existed at the Versailles Peace conference. In large part it's why the Congress refused to ratify the treaty and
the League of Nations along with it, that Rockefeller and Morgan and Dupont and Rothschild were all pushing for.
Didn't stop Rockefeller though who then set up the CFR and figured he would have better luck at the next war, that was sure to follow, because they
concluded a peace agreement that could only lead to another war. He was right and the United Nations sprang into place to take the League of Nation's
place, with almost ever delegate to the Charter Meeting being a CFR member, there on the CFR agenda.
Yet the average person could care less then, the average person could care less now.
Someone who does care could find out all about it on the Internet, and no matter how many facts they are armed with, someone who doesn't care, or it
doesn't suit their political, national or religious agenda, can just say...that's not true!
Never happened. How do you prove something never happened? You really can't beyond saying that's not true! Because that's not true, really just
means, I don't want it to be true, so therefore it isn't.
I agree if we all woke up and stopped rewarding those who enslave us, by buying their goods and services, and working for them for peanuts, and
started caring about the person next to us in the street as much as we love to hate the guy we never met across the world, then yes, it would all
change. It would involve some growing pains, it would involve some hardships, it would involve convincing some very reluctant people who find the
current system more than adequate for their simple needs.
The answer and solution is really simple, and inside each one of us, but people like to blame others while avoiding the damage to themselves that
their own complicit actions have caused. The government should not let Wal-mart import all that Chinese merchandise. Yet 9 out 10 times the person
looking for the Government to stop it, is standing in line at the Wal-Mart buying cheap Chinese junk himself, validating it's usefullness and need,
even though he is putting himself out of work and other Americans in the process.
If every body thought less about who else is a problem, and more about how I am contributing to the problem, and stopped being part of the problem by
contributing to it, then well...the problem would just fix itself.
That's the challenge, getting each person to see how no it wasn't George Bush, or Barack Obama who made the problem, it was you by participating
actively and willingly in things that common sense and personal awareness would tell you lead to problems.
I won't shop at Wal-mart or buy any foreign made good unless there is no American counterpart, and I don't even care if the American counterpart is
a cheap piece of junk or a cheaper piece of junk, and I had to travel further and pay more for it.
I just care that my money is rewarding and staying inside the system I reside in and ultimately benefits it.
We keep looking for others to force us to be smart, and to do the right things, with little clue how to do the smart or right things ourselves.
The power of positive thinking is very powerful. You have to see yourself winning to win, and you have to believe you won't loose not too.
I have always been free, my mind is not for rent or sale, to anyone, any government or any god.
I have one simple motto, do no harm, and one simple belief, not to expect anyone else to be perfect when I sure am no where close!
In my world nothing is ever anyone elses fault but mine for allowing it to happen.
I am not really worried about my future, I will be free, and having fun, no matter what comes down the pike. It's all simply a state of mind.
People are prisoners to their states of mind. I try to help people wake up, I put real time, effort, thought and energy into it. To me it's all just
about farming and growing, you plant the seeds, hope for some good grounds, some rain, some sunshine, and cross your fingers the beetles and rabbitts
don't get to it along the way or a hurricane blows it over or a frost kills it.
That's about all I can do.
Maybe a little more.
The world gets better though, when people like you keep sharing thoughts and ideas. That I am sure of, thanks.
