sorry ATS for my constant droning on this subject but...

we can keep all those rain forests if we legalize cannabis.

half of your guys's endeavors would be accomplished so much,food, clothes,medicine,paper, and lots of hugs.

just thought id slip it in there again...dont shoot me...

God I so want that avatar pic!

anyways if i may put my perspective as iv'e thought about this a bit.

you cant really be happy and hide the problems it just doesn't work
people will not be happy until their lives are comfortable or well without problem.
but the world is just getting worst so you can be sure to see more despair

i think people could try to live as minimalist as they can, this should help keep them without problems, and also getting themselves independent from corporate-gov chains.
getting off the grid, seeking to become healthier, seeking knowledge and learning will get you much happier. getting yourself on a quest is the best start, and also i like to point out that it is not only the destination but the journey that matters.

evolutionarily speaking, despair and sadness is a survival mechanism to put our lives in check, and happiness is a satisfaction mechanism.

edit:i would like to point out that drugs have more negatives then benefits in the end, and they are truly a control mechanism by the rich and powerful, my knowledge.

link had me with your OP, no need to post the video.
That ruined it for me.

Doubtless Mister Jackson was touched...although I'm far from thinking he laid his hands upon children. I think he was "mad" in a very great and as OP pointed out, dangerous way. An artist with that much sway is incredibly lethal; he/she draws massive power from the collective consciousness of people. I gotta say he was set up for a fall by those who could not conceive of such a spirit.

A terrific song. May it play long into our future, may all generations gain something from it. It leaves me misty-eyed.

S & F
all though I have already seen the video I thank you for posting it. Michael is not one of my favourites artists but that man has power in his music that should not be underestimated. I think we all could learn from him if we looked at how he was on the inside. Such a good person with a big heart, devoured by the media and fame. It is to easy to get wound up in problems that are uncontrollable by us. Something like this can really make u step back and realize what is really important. It's such a shame to see our beautiful planet going to he'll like this.

I agree about legalization, then we can focus on real criminals and crimes that are not victimless. Also I would love to see a stop or slow in deforestation here in Canada and the world in general.

The first time I heard this song was in "This Is It", the tribute film to him. It made me cry.

Link here in case it doesn't work:

Same song with a different video, I was so touched by it.

Thanks for reminding me about the song.

I thought the same thing, but then I realized he drops a lot of truth, I don't think it would be very hard to make anyone look like a pedo... that is if you wanted to destroy their credibility. Once it hits the news, it's over, I mean we all made our decision about this man. Or did we? If you talk too much they will destroy you.

These probably deserve a thread of their own...

the man is dead, can we focus on the good in his life. I was under the impression this thread was to promote happiness and and an idea of global unity, not to undermine a dead man.

Hey Yummy Freelunch, thanks for this thread.

I've been quite doomy and gloomy in my own life, let alone with world events as of late.

It's funny how the world works, this thread was posted around 10 pm, the same time I decided to stop letting myself be all depressed and everything.

The world works in weird ways some time, thanks for reaffirming that I'm doing the right thing.

Yes the world is self centers and worthless, but I like living here.

The world is what you make of it and I prefer making it something I can love

This is a great post.

No brown people would be killed by our imperial storm troopers in Iraq or Afghanistan nor would any of the rain forests have been cut down if the US government along with other nations of the world would release the Tesla free energy systems they have now. The free energy systems would allow for all our deserts to be turned green because with unlimited energy, you have unlimited fresh water to use for food.

It all comes back to the satanic new world order and their control of our future with the free energy. We are going to have to band together as a species and get this technology out and protect those engineers and inventors that are working on this now. The new world order has stolen our future and I want it back! I want to see the starships in our secret space program that I helped pay for.

We shouldn't all be working for the Rothschilds that own the private bank Federal Reserve. We should all have homes powered by Tesla free energy and driving cars powered by the same. We should be free to pursue our passions instead of working at some crummy job we don't like because we have no choices. The new world order must be rebuked and defeated by a global effort. This is OUR battle, nobody is going to win your freedom for you. If you aren't educating people every week about what is going on then YOU are part of the problem! Get off your butts and either hand out DVDs to people or spread the truth through facebook before they take it down.

Here's a short recreation of Tesla's free energy and how it was stopped by purely evil and greedy men.

Your secret government has been using this technology for over 50 years! It belongs to humanity, not a bunch of power hungry greedy men hell bent on world domination. Those days are over!

I really don't want to continue the whole discussion about Michael Jackson as we read of him in the media, as it will derail the thread, but I will just say this;

I think he was a product of his upbringing, and had to contend with a feeling of not belonging all his life. I also hold the opinion that the accusations leveled at him were designed by an agenda that knowingly took advantage of the man's idiosyncrasies.

The persona we saw in public most probably wasn’t him, it was an act. His music seemed to be deeply personal, replete with meaning to those who wanted to find meaning, and he is an artist that I regularly rediscover every time I hear one of his records. I was as shocked when he died as was his most ardent fan.

Now, the video…

Every time I see it, I cry. Don’t ask me why, as I don’t know. It can be described as being contrived to the extent it deliberately manipulates the emotions, maybe that’s why it affects me.

But perhaps there’s something we are overlooking.

Its imagery and story connects on many levels; there is a simple and deeply underlying concept in it that appeals to each and every decent human being who is sick of the way a small proportion of our species is treating our planet.

We see people starving, killing each other, killing animals for greed, destroying the environment we all live in for money and commercialism.

And then along comes an unseen and unidentified force that sweeps the globe, rewinding the clock, righting wrongs and bring the dead back to life.

A force that saves us from ourselves.

Coupled with Jackson’s iconic dancing, wherein he stamps and sings with an angry passion, that and the way he holds on to the trees in an arms spread wide – crucifixion style – and is filmed against a black and tempestuous sky, can we imagine that the message here, the one that strikes such a chord, is that we need a saviour – someone of power and conviction - to release us from the cycle of destruction we are in?

Just an idea.
