Firstly,I am not trying to shoot down this thread in any way....
But the problem with converting to free energy,is that it requires the current system to produce it.Although it would be possible to convert to
alternative energy sources,petroleum would be needed to produce components of it,so we would never be free of petroleum usage,we would use much less
A 20 hour work week sounds good,pretty much how I roll now BTW,but I see myself as an exception to the norm.I have come to realize that there is no
real benefit to playing this silly game,and accepted a much reduced standard of living in my withdrawing from that game.I have decided that I would
rather ride a bicycle to get around,than spend money for a health club membership as many do,I spend more time riding my bike around to get things
done than I do working some weeks.No problem for me,but most are just too impatient.and/or lazy, to spend so much time getting around,even though they
used to have to walk wherever they needed to go in the past.
No taxes would be a nice thing,and it used to be that only certain people had to pay them,now it is that those who used to pay taxes to keep things
rolling,do not pay nearly as much as those who shouldn't have to and didn't have to in the past.I wonder how this country functioned from 1776 to
1913 without collecting income taxes?,nobody to ask because all those free people have passed on to the "Great Beyond",but that is the way it was
There would be nothing wrong with changing over to alternative energy sources,no taxes,or having more free time,but people are not ready to accept
reality.They have gotten too used to living like kings and do not want to put any real effort into living their lives.
We have become as those who destroy us are,not all of us,but most of us.
Reality is comin' a knockin' soon for a lot of us,and the only way to change anything,is for us to change on an individual basis.If we all swept our
own doorstep,we would be cleaning up our own little corner of the world,and the whole world would be a nicer place to live in.
We have become too accustomed to having others do the sweeping for us,and those we pay to do it have had their funding cut,and in turn reduced
All of the problems in this world stem from our own laziness,the work has already been done,all of the resources which were needed to get where we are
now have already been extracted,yet we just keep taking more and giving back less.
Boycott your manufactured reality.
