I don't believe you are accurately describing the rest of the world to me.
You are a TV mind, raised on images that you see on TV. You think that all ways of life that are not like yours are somehow inferior. Why do you
think that quality of life is directly linked to material things?
Joy in this life never came from material possessions. It comes from love, and loving others. Even a fool knows this. You can be poor and without
possessions, but if your little boy throws his arms around you, and laughs when you play with him, then you are happier than the richest man in the
My point is that mankind is losing the ability to be happy - because he is convinced that material possessions and greed of money is somehow more
important than everything else. This is nonesense, and it has been known to be the business of fools ever since civilization has been around. Just
read the Rig Veda, which was written something like 2500 years ago. Being rich and affluent is nothing new. We are not the first race to achieve
this level of luxury.
You can't possibly think I am venerating poverty for the sake of poverty, or want, or disease. I am knocking the displacement of our healthy human
natures by an artificial and destructive culture of psychotic, endless desire.
I am fingering a very specific group of human beings for intentionally doing this, and for attempting to rule by its effects on the race of mankind at
You are still defending your masters, blindly, without reasoning. Are you certain that the lifestyle you think you live is superior to all others?
Can you explain why to me? What do you have, exactly, that makes their system worthy of going to war and dying?
Sleeper, we can have all these technologies and good things WITHOUT the system that has sprang up around it. It is the SYSTEM of influence and power
that has risen up that I am against. The men and women involved in it have overstepped their bounds, and have gone after the sacred positions of
authority that we in America had reserved for ourselves.
We don't need megacorporations to deliver clean water, computers, power, light, or food. We never did. You have been tricked into thinking that you
require them, and you are locked into a slavery of dependance! When you see this, you might consider my words differently.
So along with our necessities, we are getting a whole new kind of rulership based upon our dependence. We didn't elect it or ask for it, it was
imposed upon us by the naked will of these filthy people. They know what they are doing, and have a cynical plan they are following. If you could
only understand how they felt about "consumers" you would understand why I loathe them.
They are not stewards of Liberty, or guardians of our lifestyle. They are evil, maniacal, egotistic, and tyranical forces who enjoy pushing the
buttons of the world for the sake of their own selfish will. Wake up, dammit.
