Why all the hate?
I don't want to get into the specifics of what makes people act like mindless animals towards other people. I don't want to do that here. What I want
you to do is see if you can ask yourself....What do you want? Is that possible? Do I really want that, or am I being told by external influences to
You can blame the US for its fair share of problems. To try to make them out to be the sole problem with the world is simplistic, and false. The
reason the world is the way it is stems from more complex, older, and far reaching issues than a couple decades of American influence.
The US´s problems seem more relevant to us since they are happening now. But really, do you expect those problems to not be around when your kids,
grand kids, and so on are alive in another form by another empire?
Will there NOT be someone doing the same exact things then? Was there not someone doing the same exact things before the US?
So what do you really want? the impossible? IS that what makes you so frustrated? That what you see as necessary, is impossible?
There has never been a time of absolute peace, ever. Can you not accept that and move on?
I am not saying go join the problem makers efforts, but really, you are so worked up, so angry, what good does that do? What is the positive effect of
being mad at a whole continent of people? A whole empire, just because it is an empire and the only way to be one is to use tactics your average
person would not stomach.
Thing is, there really is not a better way. Fantasy and idealism aside, in the real world, where actual good and evil play out, there is no other way
to do business. Everyone else has the same play book. The human race is not coming up with new ideas in great abundance, especially so for governance
and empire. Sorry, we are not that inventive in that department.
What is happening is that with hate towards Americans always high, we don't see a reason to change. The rest of the world is not full of Gandhis and
mother Teresas. No. It is full of angry vile people, like we can be and so we know better.
Stop using our power to be the strongest militarily? Well, the world is not exactly safe and friendly. Not even amongst allies. Why should we? Does
the world really think it is so noble to just not fall into human nature? that we will not go back to be treated like crap by the world, like before
we won world wars? Were we respected then? No. The world did as it pleased and we got trampled on whenever we tried to be a world player.
We had to sit back and hide behind the oceans. Watch as the world ripped itself apart. Well, not anymore. But really, why should we elect a new power?
What will replace our current power? Who is the runner up? Will he be better than us, yeah, you think so.....? If they are human I beg to differ.
So is that what is frustrating you? That we suck, but so do you and the next guy? That you know there is something wrong with the "grand scope" of
things, impossibly so....and that makes you angry?
That you and no one here on earth now can fix our inherent nature, and that no matter what great ideas you have, no one who really matters will ever
Before the US, there was the British empire, and European empires, before them it was the Romans and others, before them the Egyptian and
others...ECT....all were as guilty of terrible brutality to maintain power over their empires. All gave to the world by advancing the world
technologically and intellectually. Good and bad. ALL OF THEM.
SO the cat is out of the bag, empires are good. Your people live better and you advance in almost all aspects.
What idea you got? Peace and harmony? Think that was never tried? Maybe it doesn't work. Maybe the only thing that keeps us going is our war, our
empire, and our way of being.
Not very nice reality is it? But it is what we are. It should not make you angry at your fellow man. It should not affect your personal life in almost
all regards. You can still live in peace and harmony. You just cannot expect the world to do so. Accept it and move on.
So if you HAVE to blame someone, DONT. You are wrong for looking to blame people. You should not focus on the insurmountable evil of the world as it
will always overcome you. Think to the positive things you can do. Think to the harmony you can create in your life and your community. These actions
do not make hate fester inside you and consume the very good you profess.
No one will fix the world. Will not happen. Unless those stories about messiahs are true, this is what we got. Don't be hateful and frustrated about
it. Deal with it, accept it, and move on. Do "good" that you can do, instead of raging about "evil" you cannot stop.
I think the reason why we all have messiah stories across all cultures and times on the planet is to address this very frustration with us all. HE
will save us. HE will teach us how. Because we must accept at some point WE never will.
just stop the hate. You are wrong. Start again.
one more thing.
I said my peace.
In an effort to avoid being banned, I will not comment on this thread anymore unless it is to complement a poster for awesomeness, general
intelligence and good vibes.
trolls, flame on.
