I wish I could say it was all down to 9/11 but the media an personal experience has been showing a strong going FU trend from the top down since the
early 1990s. Signs going the other way just seem like blips.
It took us....six thousand or two hundred odd thousand years (depending on your views) to get from a handful of humans to 1 billion in 1900 odd.
Wev'e crashed the six billion mark in just the last 100.
Wev'e overcrowded, overpoluted the planet. Traditional safe long term work is disappearing in the west, we are blaming slave wage earners in the
East, and both getting screwed. The markets now sell shares to mom and pop and the kids who are depending on these to replace pensions that are
disappearing, so people are not so generous to the cause of the worker or disadvantaged, less they become them. And I know people might disagree but
self discipline, restraint and basic values just seem to be on the decline.....including those of some over indulgent churches.
I'm not knocking faith, or the majority of the people who have it, but some of our moral majority leaders of the faith come across as nothing but
I describe myself as agnostic....by my own definition thats an atheist who is hedging thier bets!
But 9/11 polarised a lot of people to both fences, and a lot of the people in the middle are totterring in between. Me, I consider myself pretty
stable and sure of my own course.I am neither a Bush War lover or a Anti War soldier hater. Its the course of our leaders that scare the # out of
I hear self moralising my country right or wrong, might is right and we are the best. (left's you are Satan evil incarnate isn't much better btw)
and we have super fighters, cruise missiles and the biggest bag of A-bombs on the block.
Its crazy making. I beleive the USA is the better pathway than the likes of Bin Laden and the Madhists, but I don't want my country going along on
some politician/business mans ultimate power trip.
