For the first time in human history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious and politically interactive...
That awakening is socially massive and politically radicalizing... The nearly universal access to radio, television and increasingly the Internet is creating a community of shared perceptions and envy that can be galvanized and channeled by demagogic political or religious passions. These energies transcend sovereign borders and pose a challenge both to existing states as well as to the existing global hierarchy, on top of which America still perches...

Originally posted by The_ZomarYour government doesn't care about you. More military veterans involved in this "war on terrorism" have committed suicide than have actually been killed by terrorism.
Originally posted by The_ZomarThere was a time when serving in the military was honorable. I now have more respect than the local burglar I'm afraid. There is no such thing as "Supporting the soldiers, but not the war." without soldiers there is no war.
Originally posted by The_ZomarEdit to add: I guess I really should say joining the military in general doesn't necessarily mean you are a bad person. But the thing is once you are in the military you are forced to commit crimes. You are brainwashed until you LIKE to murder and rape. You may have good intentions, but those in control have turned the military into corrupt monsters. Don't EVER support the military until all they do is peacefully protect our borders!
Originally posted by The_ZomarI hope that this recent trend of corrupt governments being toppled by oppressed people doesn't stop. I hope it only grows in force until the whole world joins hands in a fight against those in power. They have shown they do not care about the people, so we must care about ourselves.
