You are just denying everything in the article. I hope at least you have had some fun with this trolling behavior.
It is no use trying to cover the sun with a sieve. You still will end up burning your eyes.
All the things you wrote are just silly.edit on 6-5-2011 by RUSSO because: (no reason given)

S & F. Great post! Though #11 where it said the sheeple would likely not make it through, sent chills down my spine. Does that mean that us "awake" people are in a better situation?

I don't necessarily agree with all the points in the article, but it provoked a lot of discussion with leads to thought which is good. We need more people to read, learn, educate themselves and wake the frack up.
Personally I believe we do not need 14 points, just 1. The one point is; Greed. This is the one major human character flaw that is causing us to destroy each other and our planet.

I would also like to add to the list the total retardation of society. It seems that the masses are becoming dumber by the day. I can see it in the youth who are more inclined to play video games, party and go on facebook instead of putting their bright, brilliant minds to work.
Today's youth should be some of the most intelligent to date and yet we do not see this.

While I agree in your premise that we are entirely too 'plugged in' as a culture, I have to ask:
How does 'information' Kill?
In my mind, lack of information is a much more daunting foe.
End of The World? No.
End of A 'World'? Yes.

I'm sorry I just don't buy it. We've had extreme tornado outbreaks, food shortages/price increases, gas price increases all in the same year. (See 1973-1974)

1973 Oil Embargo
1972-1973 Food Spiral

Also, out IQ's have actually increased. See the IQ test is just a way to show how intelligent you are based on an average. However, the average IQ has actually increased over the years, but for the test's sake, 100 must be the average. So in all actuality, the IQ of humans has increased from the average IQ of people born before 1950.
The Flynn Effect and IQs
It's all just a bunch of fear mongering and information that is being misinterpreted by people who truly don't understand science and try to correlate everything with the end of the world.

My brother and I were just discussing this last night...
We have an entire set of generations flourishing right now that grew up on Jackass and "bling". I can't tell you how many videos I've run across on YouTube with millions of views of some stupid idiot shooting a blowgun dart into someone's butt, and then them wondering WHY IT HURT?!?
Come on.. you just embedded a 4 inch piece of sharpened steel 3 inches into someone's flesh, and you really have to wonder why it hurt? And the other idiot just standing there TAKING IT and wondering why it hurt?
100 years ago, someone doing that would have died of a massive infection from that puncture wound by an unsterilized piece of metal and there was one less idiot in the gene pool. But now? We have antibiotics that'll keep them going.
And that's not to mention the 1000s of comments of "Cool!" "Haha!" "Lol!" and "I gotta do this..." on the vids...
Millions of views... and yet the REAL stories... the ones that are critical FOR OUR FREAKING SURVIVAL get 100 at best.

Thank you for your post Russo - it explains / highlights so much that it is a wonder that more people around the world are not seeing this but I guess this is as a result of #11
The way the current "system" is set up can lead to only one thing - the destruction of all we know. I am so sick of the greed, ignorance and arrogance of our so called world leaders (read bleeders!) that I almost cannot wait for it to ultimately end.
I have been feeling so disempowered for so long that I have almost become apathetic to this destruction. And no it is not as a result of me being dumbed down by CNN e.t.c. it is just that it is so frustrating seeing blatant lies and abuses of power and not being able to do a damned thing about it - there is no truth or justice anymore let alone honor. The most frustrating part is that in order to live / survive on this planet, in this system means to are forced to succumb to it's evils - where are you going to get food to eat or water to drink if not through the system?
Urgh I am just depressing myself - my mission is to spread as much truth as I possibly can with an almost religious fervor in the hope that more people will wake up from their somnambulalism and that this will lead to change without giving two hoots at the raised eye browed looks I get and snide remarks about being a crackpot
