So stop saying " The People" the people havent been able to oust the regime. So the country they piss off the most or threaten the most , WILL oust
him. Get over the people , we arent there to kill the people for the fun of it.
I have "faith" in humanity is an absolutely dumb statement. If you have "faith" in humanity , you missed about 6000 years of history. You have "faith"
in your loved ones and hopefully your leaders to ensure you way of life. Having "faith" in humanity gets your country killed. Go back to school and
learn a little history.
This also shows why you arent in government or politics because you arent a leader and arent capable to make hard decisions.
The people can address their country. If by another country "ousting" them I suppose you mean conquest. I as an American and like most of MY PEOPLE
don't want to go to war over BS excuses of threats and fear mongering. Bush kind of killed that one, its more used and wasted than a crack whore you
might call toothless molly from behind 7-11, It is almost like saying we need to fight now just because some dumbass somewhere thinks it would be a
good idea. The majority can decide for themselves. Has worked for 2 million years and we are still here, better than ever because of it. The alpha
male mentality of the primitive men that precede us will eventually be as archaic as the notion of a flat earth.
and no we aren't there to kill people for the fun of it. Some people are sending my people there in my name and for my supposed safety so as to line
the pockets of a few profiteers. Others that go or are sent, they go to make it happen, and justify their patriotism that costs the lives of even 1 of
their own in the name of conquest.
The hard decisions are not the ones that think towards throwing the biggest rock the farthest or raise the biggest stick over his head in
anger.......animals do that. No, man has an ever evolving ability to reason and learn. It's a slow process but is unarguably more developed and
enhanced with every passing generation. Sooner or later we will get it right. Thankfully most people are not so hopeless with their species. That is
It's like seeing a wolf kill his entire pack and then trying to cuddle with their cadavers. You have no faith, what are you doing in my world then?
My way of life? We are poorer and more tired every passing day thanks to the obsession our leaders have with power and wealth. It's like they are
planning on building a city of gold the size of Texas. We don't need all this empire crap. The average American 60 years ago had a better quality of
life and civil liberty than now. We have regressed as a people to a sorry state of self justification and self preservation above the interests of the
people they supposedly serve. We see no benefit from this way of life you speak of. The human will is one of perseverance and overcoming. We have done
great things. We will continue to surprise ourselves.
the faith in humanity we speak of is what sets us apart from monkeys in the woods. We argue in ever increasing numbers for reason and logic. That is
never bad for a people. You can thank any real progress to that. Not that macho "I will do what I can do" crap. You should look into yourself instead
of filling your thoughts with external mirrors and smoke to make it seem like you are somehow justified or necessary.
I am not in government or politics, I never would be. I just speak my mind. We all do, sometimes people agree and we listen to each other. Sooner or
later it becomes the will of the people as formal as it needs to come and as present and apparent as the identity of the people. We want things to
change. This is all entirely dangerous and so unacceptable. Rework it and take into account the current perspective of humanity as is. What was true
of us all even 300 years ago falls short of our now perceived potential.
It is archaic and backwards now. Adapt or go the way of the dinosaurs. World conquest is as silly as superman or Santa. It's impossible indefinitely.
It's pointless once this is realized. The next step down from the collective trees will not be for bananas. It won't be for sticks or rocks to throw
at us. It will be to walk upright upon this world move on.
Monkeys lived in trees for safety, they were scared and feared a great many things. Man in his continuing efforts off that tree has led him to be more
secure in his ability to survive and bend his world to fit his needs.
We can arguably live with what we have and actually prosper and be titans. We are falling short of our potential when we dedicate our purpose as a
people to dominating another.
Monkey or man......take the next step. Move on.
