up, and as per usual the message gets lost. It says we are giving continues distractions to stop us questioning reality. Really? The fact that i am
not working due to the economic times and a few of my friends are in similar situations means we are all blind to the world, cause, i dont know, we
watch the world cup? Somehow, these videos make us believe we are all to dumb to understand the world around us, that we are like sponges that absorb
any B.S we hear. Well we dont need these videos to realise we are all getting screwed, none of us are really asleep, we just see it as the status quo.
It has been the same for centuries, the only way to do something is to revolt, cause a revolution and turn the tide, but guess what? the places this
happend, e.g Russia 1917, fell as well. Believing we are all part of some infinite cosmos counsiousness it B.S as well. Explain how me, sitting in my
house with no work in the UK can feel that bad, when in Africa there are people starving to death and can't get clean water? Stop whinning about what
you dont have and be greatful for what you do have
The dark tower. I wonder what this avatar represents for you? The name speaks volumes, and yet, you claim that you're not asleep, that you are
awake, and that you're not ruled by fear.
If you're not ruled by fear, then why such an adverse reaction to the message of love? Your avatar suggests everything that I would need to know
about you to figure out why this video got under your skin. Although, I'm sure you would argue with me about your purposes for picking such a
negative avatar to represent yourself to begin with. Save the argument, you will only be justifying it to yourself.
And you say..."We don't need these videos to make us realize that we are all getting screwed." Really? We don't? Because the majority of
Americans aren't even aware that anything is screwing them at all. That's part of the problem, wouldn't you say? As a nation, we are lacking
awareness and consciousness, otherwise we wouldn't be in the many predicaments that we are currently in.
1. non-stop wars
2. failing economy
3. loss of allies
4. patriot act
5. rampant police abuses
6. out of control media
7. HUGE FRIKKIN OIL SPILL
8. Dying animals as a result of the HUGE FRIKKIN OIL SPILL
9. Powerlessness to go to the gulf to clean
10. Laws passed so that we won't go to the gulf and clean
11. Gratuitous debt owed to our perceived "enemies" CHINA
12. Faulty history based on wars
13. world hunger at the expense of our way of life
I could go on and on. I probably should, but hey, to save time, I choose to end it there.
If we were all "aware," as you say, BP wouldn't have been able to take a huge dump in our backyard without having paid some serious consequences.
Do you currently see any real consequences for BP? Nope. As a matter of fact, they have our coastguard working to help them cover their mistakes
right this very minute. That's not the attributes of a conscious and aware nation...is it?
And here you are, trying to fight off a video that attempts to spread consciousness. If you didn't like the video, why even post your opinion to it?
Why even waste your time? Personally, I already know the answer to this, but, I would love to hear your excuse.
Namaste and Love
