What is wrong with us? We do we keep freaking killer each other? Why do we keep arguing amongst ourselves? Why can't we all just get ALONG?!?!?!

WHY?

Our economy is falling apart and we are at war and fighting in 3 countries. We are letting everything fall apart and for what??

What the hell are we fighting for? The only thing we all want is to SURVIVE!! Why can't we learn that we are capable of not destroying ourselves??

I worried to hell about the world I'm bringing my daughter into. I worry for every kid that has to deal with the problems we are leaving them.

It's a disaster. We've left our children a damn disaster.

If we do not leave the middle east the war will never end until it ends all of us. Why can't anyone else see it? The war is playing out in the background while everyone if focuses on the economy and North Korea.

Don't forget about the war!

Haven't enough people died? Soldiers, civilians, children........what price do we have to pay to learn that it WON'T SOLVE ANYTHING!!

The answer is simple, it is hard to want something you know nothing about. "Joe" from a Fistful of Dollars said as much.

That is the bottom line. All we know how to do is rape and murder and torture each other. The cycle will not stop until everyone is dead.

Now, I'm going to go have some tea....

There is too much confusion about too many things all at once. The internet and TV may be great entertainment, but they are also prime tools contributing to sensory overload. The mind, emotions and body take in massive quantities of information without fully processing. We become like "re-actors" instead of actors.

Combine sensory overload with the prevalent lack of strong family and community ties, we are all like junks floating aimlessly on the turbulence of roiling river.

I am probably going to be spear tackled for this, but if there was no money, no politics and no religion, war would not exist.

We are all slaves to the military industrial complex, in a nut shell war is good for business and profit.

on a personal level We fight just to fight, regardless if there is a reward. This weakens us for we can't fight all battles that comes our way and expect to win the battles that are important.

There once was a bipolar king, he would have violent outbursts that resulted in death and maiming of people around him. One day during one of these outbursts he he heard a teenager playing a harp and this harp soothed his rage. The king moved this teen into his palace.

One day this teen went back home and his parents asked him to deliver some food to his brothers who were involved in a battle nearby, the teen agreed to do this task even though he lived in the palace of the king.

When he arrived on the battlefield his oldest brother made fun of him, but he did not defend himself. The teen talked to another soldier and this soldier told him the opposing army had a giant with him and his king offered a reward to any soldier that could defeat him. The teen asked what the reward was, and the soldier told him the victor would be able to marry one of the kings daughters and be rewarded with riches.

Soon the soldier told the king that the teen wanted to fight this giant, but the king told him he was too young. The teen did not fight with the soldier for talking behind his back and he did not argue with the king.

The teen raced onto the field of battle waving his sling over his head heading toward this giant, the giant lifted his visor on his helmet to get a better look at this boy running at him, at that moment the boy let loose the sling and the rock hit the giant on the forehead knocking the giant unconscious. The teen took the giants sword and cut off the giants head.

He won his battle and took his reward.

Peace can be had by us all, pick your battles wisely because if David would have fought the other battles he would not have won the one that mattered or the one with the reward.

Peace starts with each and everyone of us, in our hearts and our minds.

David vs. Goliath.

It's about lots of things....greed....racism...religion...sexism. We always seem to find a way to hate and oppress each other. I just don't understand why.

It's almost like we are doing a weird Darwinism on ourselves with "Survival of the Fittest". Do we always have to feel like we need to crap on someone else just because we think we are better than them?

All I want is to live my life peacefully...but it seems everyone else just wants to destroy everything....if not by poverty....then by war.

All it takes is one person who wants to impose some sort of will onto a person who does not wish to participate to kill peace.

Money, religion, territory, etc... may be physical manifestations of this "will" but ultimately are not the cause of instability. The individual is the cause of instability.

Either everyone has to learn to mind their own business and stop imposing their will on others or anyone who disagrees with the will being imposed has to be eradicated. Then we'll have peace.

Peace is easy. Just leave me alone. Everyone just leave everyone else alone.

Governments are the worst offenders. They can't remain in power and wealth if they left people alone.

Exactly. That's why I don't like a large government. Everything needs to stay small IMO.

Think about this...we are bankrupting ourselves into poverty to fight a war.

WTF?

It's mind boggling.

United States Marine Corp Major General Smedly Butler, the twice decorated Medal of Honor recipient wrote a book entitled " War is a Racket" back in 1935.

Everything that he points out in his book holds true to this very day. There are huge profits to be made for the select few due to wars. Everything from gun powder , to brass and copper for shell casings, leather for boots, steel for gun barrels, ships and tanks...and the list goes on. Additionally , those that are profiting from the wars never have their sons and daughters in the trenches.
He basically says that if you took the profit out of war , wars would pretty much cease to exist.

This brave hero saw too many young men lose their lives just so corporations could come in and grab the natural resources for profits after wards.

If you google his book, there are PDF versions available for download.

Wars are all about profiteering and always have been. The bankers and oil companies and defense contractors make billions off war and they give millions of $ in bribes to our congressmen and media to support the war.

The public is given some BS about fighting terrorism or communism or nazism and the idiots buy it, but it's all lies. Wars are about profiteering.

We need to forgive our enemies.

It is that simple, and that difficult.

We can't have peace because:

1- Unconsciousness is omnipresent

2- Mankind is influenced by the memory of the human race (wich is why history repeats itself)

3- Humans do not know who they are. (cosmic perspective)

4- Earth is an experimental planet, so as mankind's conscience.

5- Humans are manipulated to such an extent that if they were to know how deep the rabbit holes goes, they would either go insane or loose their spirit.

The only way out of this prison is true total awareness and consciousness.

We can and we shall have peace. Make no mistake about it. When the dust settles, and the guns have gone silent, when the people win their country back, we will certainly have lasting peace.

We don't have enemies. What did iraq or afghanistan or vietnam ever do to us? Wars are about profiteering.

The reason you cannot have peace, is people never leave people alone. So many people just wanna live there lifes, and beasts in this socialism rubbish think they have to murder those people. The thing that gets me, is these stupid people that get government jobs are the worst people to run society as they are just like beasts, and they run around saying that this is wrong and that is wrong, while they are whats wrong.

Because it's not "us" that are starting the wars and creating the problems. It's the big guys, doing it all for their own gain, and we all just get caught up in it.

You do not have friend or allies either these days.

America is now the second most hated nation on Earth (Israel being the first).

So you threaten us, bomb us, shoot us and torture us.
But you think that if you also forgive us for being the victims that we are, everything is o/k.

Next time I have beaten you a bloody pulp, raped you, and connected you up to the wires, and I throw the switch, I will say "you poor bastard, I forgive you".

The world does not want Americas forgiveness, we just want you to stop raping, plundering, and killing us.

We will have peace soon, the owner is revoking the lease at the end of the 6th day of 1000 years. Until that time “wars and rumors of wars”.

Of course in this nation we are about to have a culling of the bad guys, NWO promoters and treasonous politicians. You know the routine, buck up.
