    Yup. The only "pathetic" thing about it is that we haven't managed to figure out how to start effectively exporting people off of this dirty ball of rock yet.

    Time's a wastin' here and we've got places to explore and worlds to conquer. Get to it science! Chop, chop!

    And a lot of those people are in Washington, D.C. wasting money.
    Thats a nice post, I like that one.

    Every single person on this planet is ready to embrace a world society that makes sense. A society where we all get along and cooperate, a society where no one starves, where no one suffers. Everyone is ready to live in and contribute to a society where people do not live under horrific conditions. Everyone is ready to embrace a society where we all cooperate for a better world. Everyone is ready to embrace a society which is well organised and stable with a model that doesn't look like its made by monkeys. Everyone is ready for a society without all the lies, the deceit, manipulation and corruption. Everyone is ready to embrace a free society rather than be jailed and restricted by their governments. Everyone is ready to be free and open their mind instead of being narrow minded and controlled. Everyone is ready to embrace a society where everyone else is good and kind. Everyone is ready to live on a clean and wonderful planet. Everyone is ready to embrace useful change. Everyone wants quality. Everyone is ready for a fair economic system that make sense.
    Everyone wants everyone else to smile.
    Everyone wants a world of joy. Everyone wants to be safe. Everyone wants to experience fantastic and great things. Everyone wants to breathe clean air, everyone wants to drink pure water, everyone wants to eat delicious food. We all want to be happy. Everyone wants to live on a planet where everyone else is happy. Everyone wants a planet where everyone have all these things. Everyone wants to have a just society.


    But no. We have a society full of corruption, our planet is turning into a horrible hole, we are ruining the only place we have. We fight wars AGAINST OURSELVES. We lie, we manipulate, we are cruel to each others. We live on deception. Everyone is trapped in a society with massive brainwashing, where they have no ability to think for themselves any longer. We let the governments take all power and leave only an illusion to the people. Our society look like its organised by monkeys and savages. People starve, die of thirst and suffer every single minute. Our society is completely unstable so we choose not to cooperate and rather work against each others. For anyone who is awake and not an idiot, our society doesnt make sense at all. We poison our own food, we pollute our drinking water and soil, we empty the oceans, we live in really ugly cities. The government is hugging us so hard that they are suffocating us. Our rights are taken away day by day. We only care about profit. Everything we buy is low quality junk. Most people either steal from others as a criminal act or as a legal job, most people think only of them self. Most people say cruel things to others and try to create disharmony since they have no harmony themselves. We all feel bad.

    So f*** the US, they are now the worst.
    ...and Europe, we are on the same slippery slope.

    We step on the shoulders of the poor and suffering, we abuse other nations, we wage wars against them and kill their families, we poison their minds with unsound logic, we pretend we have democracy and stand and step on freedom and choice. We do most of the above things. We suck actually. We are immoral bastards.

    So, aside from the crooks in the US and Europe, how is the rest of the world? A damn slave labour camp, and those who don't do that, they suffer and die every day, from starvation or thirst or just horrid general conditions.


    This is ONE planet. We are ALL responsible to look at ourselves as ONE people. If someone from outside looked at this place, YOU would be considered one of those idiots on a planet with such a pathetic civilisation.

    Personally I am deeply ashamed to be a human being, being part of such a pathetic civilisation among people who do such horrendous things. I feel deeply ashamed that we let the people suffer, starve and die when we can EASILY do something about it. I feel sorry for all the dumb-asses who believe we live in good and free societies. Its probably because you only have trash to compare with.


    Take your head out of the sand and vote.



    Maybe you want to see everyone smiling

    When I see everyone smiling I know for sure that some weird **** is going on.

    No, incorrect. All named are not near as successful when put up against mankind. And since when is species survival not "desireable" to the species?

    Really? I don't agree. Living things tend to work because food doesnt drop from the skies and because the model of society they live in leaves them no option.
    Society doesn't make food and other needs drop from the sky either. People have to exert effort, think and strategize. They always will. Other living things do also.

    Then I don't see anything wrong with that. Unless you are lying.
    Well it's not really your business in either case, is it?

    Why would I not want a perfect world?
    Why would I not want superpowers? We can want idealistic and impossible things, but to get upset and protest the way you are because utopia is not achieved is psychologically self-destructive. It leads you nowhere except to more frustration and disappointment.

    To think that the world can be a failure reveals a profound sense of entitlement. The world doesn't owe it to you to be perfect for you.

    There are numerous fairly effective treatments for depression. It's episodic, almost never a permanent condition. Attitudes shift over time and symptoms level out.

    It doesn't help to drop bags of rice on them you know.



    You know that is not possible do you? Our democracy is so flawed that it is impossible for most people to get there, and if you ever do, you have to sell yourself. Usually it is the best liars and manipulators who make it into a position where they can do what you say in the end of your statement.


    Besides, this is not about me, its about everyone. Everyone should make a better world, not some corrupt people who manage to become dictator for a day.


    Our knowledge is extremely poor in general, only a fool will think we have great knowledge and understanding. If we had understanding our world would not be such an utter failure, if we have knowledge, we would do something about it. Technologies are mostly extremely primitive, useless or just plain garbage quality.
    The fact that you think it's not about you means you're either a hypocrite or you don't know what that word means. This is all about you. Your pathetic lamentations about something.

    I bet you're the kind of person who thinks communism was a great idea.

    Western society has done the most to enrich mankind. It liberated it from many prisons nature put in our path. It gave us opportunities beyond measure. Sure, democracy isn't perfect, it's only as good as the people who are involved in it.

    And our technology is primitive by what standard? Did we meet any aliens while I wasn't looking and they were more advanced than us? I think it's pretty advanced compared to just 20 years ago. Both commercial and scientific technology.

    Now I'm an electronics engineer. I'm sorry we, the engineers of the world, haven't build the world of your dreams. But where is your contribution buddy boy? What remarkable venture did you engage in that has made mankind better? Because there are endless encyclopedias crowning the achievements of western civilization and the people it produced and the positive effects are enjoyed by millions.

    Parasites and viruses are not desireable to humans like humans are not desireable parasites in space.

    We cannot regulate lower population, at best we may be able to educate to a better lifestyle.
    Good afternoon, longview.

    My only question is: Who will be running the One World Government that many envision will be Utopia? It must be robots, or aliens from another galaxy, since many humans cannot even get along with their neighbors, or family, for that matter! And I'm talking about how it's been since humans began to walk upright! :

    Good afternoon, Longview.
