As I type this, there are so many things I want to say. I know many of you are familiar with me, and either view me as ignorant, arrogant, spiteful, a
douche, or all of the above. And the truth is, I am all of these things. But I don't let them block the light. I still realize the problems in the
world, and I still want to help. But one man cannot go it alone. As I saw on a trailer today, the bravest journeys are never made alone. But this
isn't about me...this is about the things I have been trying to say. The messages I have tried to send. This is the most important one of all.
No one listens to stuff that is sugarcoated. Sugarcoating is for the weak, for those who can't handle the truth brewed black and bitter. So I tend to
be blunt. And I will be blunt...but for the life of me, I'm still trying to figure out how to say what I want to say. I'm not even sure what I want to
say. There are so many things to say...it bugs me all the time. How all of this stuff is out in the open, and no one even cares because it's the "hard
Religion. Politics. Economy. Homosexuality. Education. Society. Government. Even food...all of these things have been discussed so thoroughly that
everything has been said ten times already, and will continue to be repeated. And all of these things have problems, whether they are caused by us or
not. We talk, and we talk...but what do we do? What have we done that is worth watching on tv, or worth being repeated all across the world? What have
we done to take this race one step further along that road to glory and peace? And even better...what have we done to prevent it, knowingly or
I read somewhere that life is 10% what happens to us, and 90% how we react to it. What if...it's 100% how we've all reacted to it? Even our reactions
create that which happens to other people. I put that last can of soup back because I'm reacting to just having seen my favorite soup down the isle.
Another person comes along and grabs that last can because they are reacting to THAT being their favorite soup.
I'm rambling...the point, out of a long list of points, is that my reaction created the action that they reacted to. And so it goes on. And what a lot
of people don't realize is, everything is created by everyone else. Everything you react to was a reaction by someone reacting to something else. The
same with them.
So what's my big tamale here? There is no choice. We have to get along. The whole purpose of coming to this site is to gripe and moan about what's
going on elsewhere. I come here to get my daily fatal dose of negativity and stuff-going-wrong-in-the-world. And yet everyone here (including me) sits
at their computer and just posts stuff without walking outside and doing something about it. Half of the people here do their jobs and support the
system that they complain about. It's like watching Christians praying for a a savior that, apparently, plans on coming just when it's too late to
save the world.
This is our job, people. We are Homo Sapiens. If we can't do it, who can? All of this stuff that we constantly bicker about...the first step to
creating a successful, productive world is GETTING ALONG.
I think that's what this thread is about. Getting along. Sorry, it sometimes takes me a bit to put a theme to the rampaging sentiments that trample my
cerebral cortex in the mad rush to reach my frontal lobe. Yes...cooperation, and love. That's what we're teaching here, right?
I'm not gong to post pics, or provide evidence. If you want evidence, turn on CNN or go to the homepage of this website. Everyone is complaining. No
one is doing anything. And when it comes down to it, we even turn against each other. It makes me sick. This is the site where we reveal truth...but
not even this site is safe from the pitfalls of humanity.
If you want to make a difference, start here. Create an Eden where we can discuss ideas and not get in a catfight over who's right and who's wrong. No
one is exactly right...that's why it's called opinions. Get over it. If we can't get along, then you sure as heck can't expect the rest of the world
to. That's hypocrisy. So all of you ATS members (including me, as I have said) want peace? Start here. Now. This minute. be nice to people, be
respectful, and love everyone, despite their differences.
Is it so hard? One half believes in a hollow earth, the other half believes Elvis is alive and well in the Bahamas. Big deal. There's worse issues
going on in Iraq and your own countries. Is this the best you have to worry about? Is your best solution going back and forth in such a pitiful
manner? I'm not raging, I'm not ranting...I'm exasperated and frustrated...and most of all, disappointed. Disappointed to have been born into the ONLY
SPECIES with ANY HOPE of saving this planet...only to find that instead of saving the planet, for some inexplicable reason, we are tearing it up just
to spite one another.
Is getting along a sin? Is it? Is there some reason we can't just hug and be friends? Differences are the spice of life. I don't know what else to
say. I'm beginning to believe that if it has to be said, then there's no use saying it. There's a point where the obvious can't be discussed...it can
only be observed and acted upon.
Pretty soon, it'll be too late for that. Try to make the deadline, people. Or you won't be around to help anyone...including yourselves. This is my
message to the masses. Don't worry about god, don't worry about 2012, don't worry about an asteroids or political elections or anything like that. You
want peace? Bring it.
Start with yourselves. Here. Right now. Please...for the sake of our futures.
