    Your complaints are aimless and inconsistent. One minute you complain that we are laying claim to resources belonging to others in other countries (which acknowledges ownership rights), the next minute you're trying to lay claim to my resources (which is an abusive disregard of ownership rights), and then you're saying the resources belong to the planet, or to everyone in general (which is a failure to comprehend or acknowledge ownership rights). You need to go back to the drawing board, get control of your emotions, and come back with a rational and more consistent set of recommendations. All I can gather from your ramblings in this thread is that you want there to be a single world government that is benevolent and for everything to be perfect.

    You're saying I should have a depressive disorder? I disagree. I do not want to be depressed, be in a state of deep shame, and harbor the attitude that "the world is an utter failure" (your words), and so forth. I am grateful that I do not think or feel that way. It appears miserable and unhealthy.

    Personally I have none of that going on, I just feel ashamed being a human being, living in such a civilisation.
    This statement contradicts itself. Your inconsistencies sure are piling up.

    I feel even more ashamed when I am on this forum and seeing what people write here.
    Given that your poll results are so overwhelmingly opposed to your attitude, maybe it's time to examine that attitude. You accused western society of not being able to self-examine... take some of your own advice and sort out some of your malaise, enlisting the help of a professional if needed.

    Did I say this, or is this another gross misenterpretation? Those tend to make the world like it is.

    Thats why countries do not cooperate well, because they want to misunderstand each others completely. Since you work in the ER, I suggest you learn how to clean your ears, metaphorically speaking.

    It may, but I doubt it.

    70 years old and still didnt learn to listen or behave towards other people?

    I would say for a man your age, you are being slightly cruel in this thread.

    For a civilisation I would say people aren't behaving particularily civilised in here.

    It's a perfect example of crude defence mechanisms and primitive rude behaviour towards other people.

    Of course our civilization is not "pathetic", but it does have a distance to go.
    This will take time, we have only been on this wonderful orb for 6,666 years ...according to my accurate calendar.
    I do not think any of the eight great sins can ever be erased....but they can be ameliorated.

    Neomalthusian. Its typical human being to misuse information this way to try to be right about things.

    You clearly have a very bad overview of the context of those 3 post contents.

    Maybe you should read what that is a response to..



    Anyways, getting stuck in details is ofcourse an extremely typical thing on debatepolitics.com

    I know that very well. Narrowing the view to being on something completely irrelevant and discussing that and trying to take the person instead of actually having any idea or opinion about the topic being brought up for debate.

    But thats up to you, that is your personality, and you are free to behave as you want.

    No one here seems to care how the world is anyways. Nobody cares if the world is a bad place or a good place. They just care about themselves usually.


    Its too bad, quite disappointing to be honest.

    Not really. Those quotes are completely relevant to where they are.

    But its no point discussing this with you anymore. You can freely unsubscribe from this thread. You need to open your eyes, climb our of your box, look around and try to be nice. I have tried to be nice, and I am still trying to be nice.

    Those points are NOT about individuals, they are about the civilisation in general. If you took offense to that, perhaps you should read things 2-3 or 4 times before you reply.
