Something to think about...
There is something that everyone must understand about human nature, we All have a fatal flaw called GREED. I read all these posts where everyone has
these utopian ideas that somehow we can all just get along. We can't, period. As children, we want more candy than the next child; we want the
biggest piece of cake. As adults we want to make a million dollars, but then when we have a million do we step aside so the next person can make their
million? No, we go on to try and make another million and then another and another. That's what got us into this mess. Our banks and corporations are
all international conglomerates, and nothing can hold them back or check their growth.
Of course, when a person gets wealth, they also think they should have power. Have you ever noticed that when an actor or musician has made a lot of
money they seem to think that gives them the right to tell other people how to live? Many have no formal education, and wouldn't be wealthy to begin
with unless a bunch of "handlers" made decisions for them and stroked their ego. Yet, many of the younger generations look at them as gods, and
whatever dumb idea they come up with is like a sign from heaven. It's a world designed around "if it feels good, do it." Every wonder why a
president has to be at least 35 years old to run for office? And, ever wonder why, as most people age, they become more conservative? (A few don't,
and they all seem to be in control now.)
We are not going to get rid of greed. It is as much a part of human beings as life itself. The only way to control greed is by keeping our world
separated into individual countries. When dictators arise, they are confined. Just imagine if Hitler's dream of a world empire had materialized. Who
would have stopped him?
America needs to pull back inside it's boundaries, and so does the nations of Europe. Go back to smaller governments and more personal
responsibility. You can't stop greed, but you can keep it from getting out of hand.
