Someone correct me if I am wrong. Most of the whole 2012 date is based on the Mayan calendar. The Maya like many other cultures think of time as a circle. The reason the long calendar ends in 2012 is because they went all the way around and 2012 is where it starts all over again. You reuse the calendar. It will be off a tad but no biggie.
The short count calendar predicted a time of change not the end of the world.So if you think the world will end because of the Mayan calendar think again because they didn't even think that. Heck the calendar already spanned lifetimes and generations past the lifeline of those who designed it why would they need to make it go any farther out. The procession is the starting point and end point.
If you think the world sucks and you want it to end why do you feel everyone else and the planet have to be destroyed along with you? Some of us are not as ready or willing to give up. If the world sucks change it.
I am not waiting for any god to come and save me. I am not a damsel in distress I am the master of my own destiny and don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon. I think the whole 2012 thing is a cop out to make people feel better about knowing good and not doing good. It's much easier to do if you tell yourself the world is coming to an end, why even try.
Maybe 2012 is where we finally get off our butts and live up to our potential. If there is a god would he be proud to see we figured it out from our selves? Cut the spiritual apron strings we should be evolved enough by now that we don't need them.

I am FOR depopulation of the rubbish on our planet, not all human beings.
Get rid of the mafia, all criminals, dont let them waste space in the prisons just get rid of those who are in prison for murdery and similar.
Then get rid of the useless minorities like gipsies who don't want to work when given the opportunity and whose only way of living is stealing.

I would like to see mankind back to the basics. Internet is great but no one actually talks to each other anymore.

I suggest that wanting the world to be destroyed or ended or most people to be killed is just downright odd. Why would anyone think that they would be a survivor if a calamity happened? Why would anyone think they have the skills to survive such an event if they were not one of the immediately killed?
I certainly prefer the status quo even if it is not perfect.

In my personal opinion i want the human race extinct...that means all of us, even me.
So to get back to the question, I don't really think many people want the End of Earth of the End of Man, what they really want is the End of Most of Man. They want a return to the basics, agrarian life, zero government, survival off of the Earth itself, total freedom.
. You can throw statements around like 'do something about it' all you want, but I think it's going to take something like a global shift in consciousness and awareness of ourselves before things start changing.
