I really like the video, not the reality of it, but it was moving and well put together. I also agree with both of you. 08 was an amazing reality
check. People are too tuned in to the status quo for anything to change. I'm pretty much totally turned off by the whole situation now, people are
too selfish and short-sighted - even now, even after we nearly had a second depression. These wars go on and it's leaked that we have lost more
soldiers and killed a lot more innocent civilians than reported. But no problem for the majority - it's not them sacrificing in these wars. If
everyone had a relative serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, the majority would be against war. It's lame how we allow the PTB to manipulate us. I try
to think positive, and to the mainstream it seems I am not.
But really I am, really we are. We are thinking more positive than anyone, wanting wars to end and (economic) freedom to return to the empowered
individual. We want the modern wage slave-system to die (the solution is more personal, but things have to happen politically also). What a world
this one could be - but we NEED politics to change, it's just another piece of the puzzle but a very important one. I think it's more important
that people change though, they just shoot themselves in the foot when they allow this rat-race system to continue. They can't see just how great
this world could be, period. They can't imagine anything else but "That's just the way it is."
But we have this system, democracy, republic whatever, even if we did not we could still change our country, our states, our cities... It's a place
we share, we could do anything. People don't realize that. We are in fact using our human potential whether we realize it or not, and right now we
are using that amazing power blindly. Absoutely blind. And it's all going to the profits of the super-wealthy - the house we live in and car we
drive are TINY crumbs, that most work our entire lives for. But worse than our personal situation, I think, is what we do to the world by living in
the most powerful country and flying blind.
