Before I reply, could someone please tell me how to rid my posts of those
Ok, so let me be clear. I don't subscribe to any -isms. I know, I know, the
many different opinions must be given a name so that they are independently distinguished. Commun-ism, totalitarian-ism, and the many other -isms
serve to clutter our minds and make us feel like we must choose one.
All of them, in their entirety, must fall. If you feel that you must adopt an -ism, why not give humanitarianism a try?
"But if there were no -isms, wouldn't that be anarchy"? Maybe, for a time there could be lawlessness, but it would resolve to a renewal of laws.
Don't you see? The systems that have been so meticulously woven into the fabric of our existence must fail. As a rule, people are so blinded that
they think that this is the way the world is supposed to be. I cannot stress the importance of that statement. They think that this is the way it's
supposed to be!
I'll tell you what makes me really sad. Some people live their entire lives
and die without ever having a clue as to the immensity of the lie that they lived. Ah, I can see the thought forming in your minds already. "but,
ignorance is bliss". No, no, and no. Ignorance is sad. Sadness can not be bliss. (unless you're emo). Bad jokes aside, the reality of it is, we all
have relatives and people that we know who still think that life is just work, money,
taxes, and the eventuality of death. And no matter how that death occurred, it was just "their time to go". Are you buying into this? Because I
I am not really one for doom-and-gloom, and I apologize for the despondency. However, I must make mention if only briefly of the plans that some of
you may have to stock up and ride out the storm when and if the shtf. If you hoard the food, the supplies, the shelter, and what have you, there will
be people that want to take it from you. This subject really deserves a new thread, but I will touch on it here. If you were to instead share these
things with the would be takers of your belongings, they would no longer have the need to take it. See where this is heading? Here comes the "but if
our stuff away, then we would do without". No, you wouldn't, because you and your new friends would meet other people that were ready to share, and
someone in that group has knowledge of growing things, or building things and then when you are building shelter for your growing group of friends,
people will take notice that you have more and they would try to take it, and you would give, and they would no longer need to take. See the
That, tremendously simplified and abridged thought pattern is but one roughly hewn stone in the bridge to true freedom. I know that there are many
questions unanswered in this discussion. Questions like, "what happens when somebody up and kills another"? Well, if things up to that point have
gone well, and most people are giving and turning takers into givers, then maybe the killer would be given 1 chance to try again, and maybe he
wouldn't. Hmmm, eye for an eye? I think I just stepped in an -ism. Thanks for reading.
