People in power don't give a damn about their own children let alone anyone elses. Who's to blame....Everyone of us.... For letting all this continue to go on, from the arm chair general to the soldiers on the front lines. Especially the soldiers on the front lines, I know I myself am not out there around the world following orders and killing people, but as noble as our soldiers are thats their job and sometimes either on purpose or by accident children get killed. So to quickly put an end to it simply lay down your weapons, refuse to go to war unless all other avenues have been exhausted. Stop following idiot orders that you know in your gut are not right. God it seems I have said this thousands of times over the course of my time here at ats, but it always falls on deaf ears. And to add, no I am not dissing our men and women who defend our countries, but sometimes enough is enough, and wars cannot be fought without you on the front line now can they....
I pray you, once in a while, practice Faith in the value of Humanity, and being Humane... For when you do, you will give testament and creedence to the future of our namesake and indeed our collective spirit...
Your video made me cry and shake with rage, I'm still shaking.

Was thinking of putting together a thread just like this. I've been paralyzed all weekend with a deep depression over precisely what you are talking about here.
if that was going on here... i would be the first to fight back even if i did get smoked by a drone

And I can't believe I have to ask this question, but am I like the exception and not the rule? What the hell is wrong with humanity ? And how can any human being of a secular nature, even entertain the thought for one second, that mankind is the sharpest knife in the drawer ? We don't even bother to get our kids out of the way of war, but some think intelligence is maxed out in us ! At that I must deny ignorance and claim the ultimate stupidity. Proud and haughty to be human ? Not ! And how could anyone even think to be so ? I am truly ashamed.
You are not alone. You are not the exception to the rule. Personally, I can't wrap my head around it at all. How have people become so disposable? One can get very lost in the despair that surrounds us. These images, they are doing a number on us all. If you let the mind go there, you can be driven mad. It's a deep dark hole to travel down my friend.
I don't know if people don't trust that they have the power any longer to make a difference. It almost seems to me that we've given up and are welcoming an end. I admit I have times when that's the only solution I see, then I think, if we, I, the collective do that, they win...whomever "They" are.
I don't have the answers, I just want to reitterate, you are not the only one feeling like this.
