After reading this forum for a while, I started to become quite jaded. All this talk about government conspiracies, coverups, the war in Iraq is
giving me a cynical view of the world. Sometimes I wish it were a nicer place to live. Now don't get me wrong, im not naive enough to think that it
is possible in our lifetime let alone ever. What am I am proposing is a meeting of the minds to try to make the world a better place on a smaller
Take into account the problems involved in such an endeavor. First and foremost, the problem is people. As you already know, those that are wealthy
have power, they crave more power. Power can be achieved through war, misleading the masses, and secrecy. The outnumbering middle and lower class
don't usually have a say in internal politics, no matter what kind of "elections " occur. In addition, they middle and lower classes are
"selfish" in the way that they want to make something of their life. Usually their needs will take first place to the needs of the world. Any
solution you can come up with won't work because it is nearly impossible to convince 10 billion people to give up their desire for power, wealth, and
persuit of more STUFF.
The alternative? Forced bondage and slavery of the world under one omnipotent ruler! err........no.. That would be too extreme. How about having
America conquer the world and shape it entirely in its image? Hmph.. I don't think so. We aren't that perfect ourselves, and it is really a matter
of diffrent ideologies.
So you see the problem before us. The world is becoming a dangerous place to live in. While we sit here and post on our forums, complaining about the
state of the world. How many of us are actually doing anything about it. We have one of the greatest collection of minds on the internet. Minds that
are practically invulnerable to ignorance and propaganda. The main weapons of the government. (Besides those pesky feds).
We need to start coming up with ideas and fast, becuase the responsibility belongs to us. Have any of you ever seen "Life of Brian"?
Right. Now, uh, item four: attainment of world supremacy within the next five years. Uh, Francis, you've been doing some work on this.
Yeah. Thank you, Reg. Well, quite frankly, siblings, I think five years is optimistic, unless we can smash the Roman empire within the next
Yeah, twelve months. And, let's face it. As empires go, this is the big one, so we've got to get up off our arses and stop just talking about
I agree. It's action that counts, not words, and we need action now.
You're right. We could sit around here all day talking, passing resolutions, making clever speeches. It's not going to shift one Roman
So, let's just stop gabbing on about it. It's completely pointless and it's getting us nowhere!:
I agree. This is a complete waste of time.
You see my point right?
Okay, I'll stop talking now, and we come up with realistic plans for change. Not grand world changing ones, but one step
at a time changes...........................*looks at watch*...............GO!
