Thanks for your post. The Ghandi quote helps to put some things into perspective.

I have woken people up in the past, at least it seemed that way. It is hard to tell because most times they go back doing the same old same old. The
blatant belief in the mass media is the worst of the problems, but they continue to follow it like it is their god.

I can only hope you are right on that one.

Personally, I am ashamed of what the military is doing and what our government stands for. The wars in the Middle East are far gone from a war of
freedom are indeed a war of empire. There are others who show unfounded patriotism towards the troops, however, though I respect them, I do not
respect what they are currently doing.

There will always be one or two people like you - threatened by my words. I wanted to help others, and believe me I still do - however when they are
so arrogant as to listen to facts in the face of them - then I question whether when the time comes if I will help them or if I will say "No."
I don't have all the answers, but I know for sure as hell that I have more then the people who herald American Idol as their weekly ritual, and
salute the main stream media for their exquisite "research and reporting". As far is if I was assigned to be some kind of missionary, that is
another topic for another day, but I rightly believe I was.
You mention evolution but not at one time to you mention emotion. Human life is more than just "survival of the fittest" as some scientists like to
put it - the existence of a soul puts everything in another perspective. Either you care about your species and its salvation, you care about nothing.
There is no middle ground.
By the sound of it you would rather everyone simply die off so that evolution can take its course. To herald THAT philosophy over mine of spreading
truth and awareness is just silly and heartless.

Thanks for your words. I will take them to heart.

My teaching is teaching to research. It is teaching to think for themselves. I am not simply telling people to believe as I believe, but I am telling
them to formulate their own opinions.

Thanks you ST, and I consider you a friend as well. I don't plan on stopping the good fight, I am simply considering focusing my resources elsewhere.
People are too arrogant to want to change through truth and "preaching" that I do, so perhaps another method is in the works.
I will take your words to heart.

Though I have tried getting together with locals, the effects were negative to say the least. However, I never thought about using Craigslist. Perhaps
there is merit in that idea, thanks.

For this country, I base my beliefs on, as Subjective Truth mentions - the Constitution and our Founding Fathers. I believe it is our duty and honor
to pay tribute to those men who risked everything to give us what we have today. While their vision is now an empty shell of what it once was, I do
believe that the hope for this country can be restored.
As for the rest of the world... one step at a time.
Just because humans might divert back to their same ways in the future, is not any reason not to hope for a better life. Even if it is 1 year of
utopia, it will be better lived than through a lifetime of chaos and corruption.
I believe that utopia is created in the mind and not in the physical world. It is when human beings are lifted from all shackles of life, when they
can live their life in peace, without fear of breaking the obscure laws or being killed for their beliefs - that is utopia.

It just becomes so hard when you see that 90% as opposed to that 10%. You start to wonder if it is even possible to wake up more, or if they will just
return to their sleep state.
Thanks for the reply.

I have thought about this more than once, that perhaps my words are working. However, even for those that I had believed were awakened in the
slightest, they have disappointed me. I had convinced my own parents after the beginning of the current recession that gold prices would rise and they
should convert their retirement into gold.
The act like they believed me and I thought they had listened. Instead, they chose to play the cards. Gold skyrocketed, they were stunned at my
prediction and they finally started to listen. I told them that this "recovery" isn't happening time and time again and at first they agreed, but
lately they have just become frustrated telling me that I don't know of anything. They tell me that I am wrong and that I am being immature
I tried to convince them that global warming and of the 9/11 situation, and they refused to listen to me. But when I convinced them to watch Jesse
Ventura's Conspiricy Theory about the subject, their minds changed and they started to think- but not enough to actually care.
It just went to show me that people would much rather believe anything on the media then the truth before them. I'm glad they are semi-awake to the
possibilities, but the fact still remains.
