    That tells me that you need to adjust your perspective at least a little.

    I could say a lot more, but I'll just leave it at that.
    I would agree with a statement that "our civilization could be better".

    But pathetic? Hah!

    Correct. My sentiments exactly.

    Hyperbole like we see at the beginning of this thread doesn't win arguments or make this world a better place.

    I just took a few seconds and rated this thread. I gave it a terrible only because pathetic was not one of the choices.

    Why bother with research to see how much percent a sample of participants wants a particular thing? When one can just state that everyone wants everything? It is way easier! So why bother?!

    N = Unlimited

    Wants = Everything

    Stated and thus proved at once. Brilliant!

    Yeap. The recipe for Afghanistan! They are not happy with it probably, but now there is little hope left from them to go out also!

    Beyond the point and completely irrelevant.

    Nope. Didn't say that. Said our accomplishments suck, that being our civilisation that we best can be measured by. The rest of your post is completely uninteresting and not very civilised, so i wount answer it. Why is your response so emotional? Typical people on this forum to act wildly emotional. Perhaps that's why MANY in this thread don't see things in a rational way.. hmm

    No, most people are good, they are just people. People are born good and innocent. This world turns some of those into the worst monsters. And those are not good. This world affects us all in some way towards bad things, for some more than others. Besides, I am not the judge of good or not, but that is my take on it.

    Perhaps you can start another thread about good discussing how to define good, what makes someone good etc eetc, because that is a huge topic.

    I forgot to mention that you peoples guts are owned by the government.

    Over here in Europe land, people are waking up to reality, in the US, which most of the people on this forum is from, you are all quite asleep still.
