Bothersome is much too strong a term.

I quite see where you're coming from. I can't say I disagree with you, because I really don't. I just think you need to look at the other side of the coin.

How do you know the "dark", if there isn't something to contrast it to? Obviously you see good, as well. Don't let the bad stuff that happens weigh you down, my friend.

I know when I see something that is wrong. Saying you have to see good in order to contrast against evil is not IMO actually true. Every being in the universe knows right from wrong, how they apply their own mental justifications as to why something is right or wrong or make justifications on converting one to another, is another story .

The truth is I have a habit of turning everything in life into boolean logic (true / false | black / white). If you look at the world in that light things become a lot clearer.

A few sparks? It only takes one to light a candle. It only takes one to light a warming fire.


Until someone at the top of the heap writes new rules proscribing the lighting of candles or offering warming fires to those in need and the people abide by the new "rules". Abiding by the rules of evil greedy rulers is what will destroy us.

Feeding The Homeless BANNED In Major Cities All Over America

By Michael Snyder, on March 21st, 2012

Sometimes a well-timed sandwich or a cup of warm soup can make a world of difference for a homeless person. But many U.S. cities have decided that feeding the homeless is such a threat that they had better devote law enforcement resources to making sure that it doesn't happen.

This is so twisted. In America today, you need a "permit" to do almost anything. We are supposed to be a land of liberty and freedom, but these days government bureaucrats have turned our rights into "privileges" that they can revoke at any time.

...and yet, people do it anyway.

I do. ...and let my municipality do something to me. It won't change me any. I'll pay the ticket, or fine, do my two months in the hoosgow...whatever. ...and if I can help someone, I will.

My nature is mine. No one elses. ...and no one, this side of death, is going to prevent me from doing what's right.

Yes, people do it anyway.

But while you're paying fines and doing your two month stint as a reward for the goodness of your heart, those who retain the rulemaking power in those 70 named cities will go right on writing more and more draconian rules. THEY are the ones most deserving of a two month stint in jail just for their sheer lunacy. Unfortunately, the residents of those cities don't even know who the hell it is that's writing the rules, much less have the gumption to ride them out of town on a rail.

That is very true.

Many don't. The one's who do? All too many of them are too complacent to do anything. Until it pinches, they won't care...

I'm not really disagreeing with you about the issue... Though it may seem like it. I just disagree that it's beyond salvage...though I'll admit to wondering occasionally.

It's an article of faith with me, that eventually people, as a whole, will figure it out and do something about it. The riding 'em out on a rail has a certain appeal to it. So, too, does the tried and true tarring and feathering...

No, I apologize if my words seemed argumentative, that wasn't my intent at all. And I agree that it isn't beyond salvaging except for the fact that we keep looking for "in the box" solutions and obviously that's a losing proposition.

I especially recall the words of one lady from Texas a few years ago who put it this way, "Last year I was helping out at a homeless shelter and this year I'm living in one." Its just another reminder of Jefferson's warning about waking up homeless in the land our forefathers won for us.

Not to derail the intent of the thread, but I'll again throw out some out of the box thinking and suggest establishing local currencies to rebuild local economies and provide a form of buying power for the people where it counts the most ~ at home. The main opponent of setting these alternatives up, however, is the Chambers of Commerce who discourages local businesses from doing business with anything but the dollar. That, all by itself, should be a big clue about who the rule makers are.

Part of the problem is humanities fear of standing up to change things on all levels.

It is at times very difficult to embrace change because it means we need to be responsible for the change we want to see.

Any intelligent being understands that it's growing pains for a primitive species. All species that are more advanced then the human race went through it themselves. That's why god gives up on nobody. That's not to say he won't try to teach you a lesson. Even if that means hurting you where it hurts. Such is life.
