It is in times of war that people help eachother most and when it comes to civilians - even the enemy. War can and does bring out the best in us and for those who lack this deep seated human trate and perpertrate evil on the world and those around them are nothing more than animals.

I don't know, friend. I once thought exactly the same as your OP suggests...
But while driving home from work today, I noticed the same rush hour traffic I have for decades. The wal-mart super centers are as crowded as ever, and the expensive steakhouses are maxed out.
It makes me honestly wonder. Maybe its US. Maybe 'we' on here---or some of us--- are suffering from net-overload and a little paranoia. I'm very tempted to unplug a while. I suspect some of us on here might share a sort of collective, semi-subjective world view that is grimmer and darker by far than the reality in our towns and neighborhoods.
Maybe we are the sheep, and the internet is our shepherd?
It's food for thought anyway.
