The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.
Patriotism, weapons, armies, navies, all that is a sign that we’re not civilized yet. Kids will ask their parents… ‘Didn’t you see the necessity of machines? Dad, couldn’t you see that war was inevitable when you produce scarcity? Isn’t it obvious?’ Of course the kid will understand that you were pinheads raised merely to serve the established institutions.
We’re such an abominable, sick society that we won’t make the history books. They’ll just say that large nations took land from smaller nations, used force and violence. You’ll get history talked about as corrupt behavior all the way along until the beginning of the civilized world. That’s when all the nations work together.
World unification, working toward common good for all human beings and without anyone being subservient to anyone else. Without social stratification whether it be technical elitism or any other kind of elitism, eradicated from the face of the earth. The ‘state’ does nothing because there is no ‘state’.
The system I advocate, a resource based global economy is not perfect, it’s just a lot better than what we have. We can never achieve perfection.
Only after the last tree has been cut down
Only after the last river has been poisoned
Only after the last fish has been caught
Then you will find that money cannot be eaten
You’re a savvy consumer used to pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. So if you were a jobless parent, down to your last $1,000, you could make it work, right? Spent is a new free online “game” that tests to see whether you have what it takes. Put out by the Urban Ministries of Durham, it’s less fun than a sobering dose of reality. I played it and in order to make it through the month I couldn’t let my kid go on field trips and I missed his baseball game in order to take a job helping a neighbor move. Also, I got fired for talking to a union organizer. The gas also got shut off and I drove away from an accident instead of paying the ticket. I had no choice, otherwise I would have gone broke and lost the game.
I enjoyed playing this and I managed to get through the month with $299 left! Granted I went with a tooth ache and someone siphoned gas out of my car. I can relate to this game in more ways than I care to mention.
My country Libya is finally revolting against our dictator, Muammar Gaddafi, who’s been in power for the last 42 years.
I can honestly say that I’ve never met someone who has actually liked having Muammar as the leader of our country. He has killed innocent men, oppressed women, taken our fathers away, exiled families from their own homes, deprived education, improsoned teenage boys, stolen money from his people and has killed 1200 men all in one night. The man is an evil coward, a narcissistic bastard, and a complete phony…may God have mercy on his soul, because I sure as hell won’t. And I hope the rest of Libya doesn’t.
VIVE LA LIBYE!
seems the chain reaction of taking action is in motion, its beautiful isn’t it?
