I am one of those people who has to know exactly what someone is talking about. If I dont know, I will look it up. Thats me, thats what I do. I want all of the information that I can get my hands on.
That is probably why I read at least 6 different news sites a day. Sometimes more. There is another reason for this, as well. That reason is because we generally already know that most news sites are biased in one way or the other. It could be a really minor way, but in my experience, they are all biased in huge ways. And yet we still take that one news site as "the truth" because of looks, sounds, and perceptions. Not actual truth.
Anyway, I was reading one of my sites, and I saw an article that says "top economic advisers predict world war".
Ya think? Is there really any way we can avoid this? We have some pretty interesting things going on all over the place lately, and with the Israel/Gaza issue getting worse by the minute, I dont understand why everyone isnt saying this. Im not a war mongor. Im not someone that wants to go to war. I am not someone who wants my family to have to go through that, and I sure dont want anyone elses going through it, either.
That article says "all too often war is the manifestation of simple economic entropy played to its logical conclusion. We believe that war is an inevitable consequence of the current global economic situation."
Ouch. You mean, a bunch of greedy rich guys gets to destroy everything the "underdogs" of the world have worked to create? Oh wait. You mean they already HAVE, and thats why we are going to have a huge, world wide war? Ok. Seems some of this is making sense. And really, disorder does run rampant in todays society, all over the world, and our world markets seem to be at the top of the world list. What does one do when banks run the world? I just dont know yet. It seems most are going for war.
Now- Lets imagine for a minute what would happen if we ended up in a world war in this day and age. We have all heard the horror stories of wars and I, for one, have no desire to raise my children in a war zone. ESPECIALLY one that could end all wars, if you will. I dont want to see what sort of huge bombs we and other countries have. And if we think it cant happen to us, we are fools. We are damn stupid.
The war in Gaza is really getting to me. Why? Well. Thats an interesting question. Depending on which news source you are talking to, Israel is basically starving the people of Gaza. Thats right. They held a conference to see EXACTLY how many calories a person needs a day to survive, only to take that number and drop it a few points to starvation levels. Malnutrition and iron deficiencies run rampant, and they arent allowed to have the basic foods we need to get all the vitamins and minerals a person has to have. Has anyone ever been Anemic? It bites. You are tired, your mind doesnt want to work well, and you just feel ill. I wont go into what happens when severe anemia takes hold. Lets just say chasing kids is impossible if you cant keep from passing out after 10 steps jogging.
My point is- Isnt Israel an ali? Arent they "on our team", so to speak? Why are we aligning forces with a group that is starving children? Because its "bigger"? Really, I want to know why we are allowing this. It makes me sick. REALLY sick. Why arent they being charged with war crimes? "Because Palestine isnt a state."
REALLY?! WHAT?! So- basically, you arent human unless you have an active governing body, in the eyes of other nations? "The U.S. Doesnt recognize the Hamas government."
Well, sure. Ok. They had enough of being in the position they were in, and made their own government. I would too, if I was in their position. No one should have control over what foods you eat and how much. At least they are trying to do something about their issues, even with huge governments against it. Many will argue that they are a bunch of terroristic non-humans that have no valid point. Many others will argue that they have had their very own lands jerked from them for centuries. Many will argue that I dont know what Im talking about. Many will say "do the reading yourself." Thats what I say. Learn up on this. It is Persecution to the fullest. I think I know of another area in the world that is getting aid from us because of "oppression". Because they want to overthrow a dictatorship, right? I wont go into my opinions of that right now. Its just startling where the similarities lie, and where they dont.
The whole point of this entire ventation of anti-war, anti-starvation, anti-BS that people do to one another is that it needs to stop. People also need to quit relying on one point of view. People need to utilize this great invention called the internet, and gather as many different points of view as possible. After a bit of doing this, you become able to read between the lines a bit more, and uncover more of the actual TRUTH of the matter.
I just get so tired of hearing only one POV in an argument, and only from one source. I just get so tired of hearing "mainstream" vitrol. Do the research, do the homework, from more than even TWO (2) sources, see what the other people have witnessed, learned, and experienced before you form your opinions based on the perspective of a person that lives in a mansion and sits behind a desk and camera all day. Someone that isnt in the pockets of some corporation that has no human morals what so ever. If someone says "the ONLY source..." you know its biased. If you hear "please check for yourselves...", chances are its a bit more unbiased. That, however, is not the exception.
And, as far as my fellow viners are concerned, every one of you knows that there are issues, we are all smart, and we all came here to get smarter. We all have that ability on here, but we are so far gone in our blasting of other political parties that we have forgot the very essence of what America is about. Of what huminity is about. I dont care what you think about someone. No one deserves to have their children starved because of "property conflict". No one deserves to be deported or killed because of what they believe.
That brings another issue up. I dont care if you feel the states petitions to secede is because of a tantrum and nothing more, and I dont care if you think that we need to secede to make right a bunch of wrongs in the government. I see the sides of both, and yet still feel I can be in the middle on this one. That doesnt mean that either one of those sides needs anything but the ability to express their opinions. That is, afterall, what USED to make this country so great. We had the ability to decide our own opinions, for ourselves, and could do it without fear of anything. Now, if we dont like what policies the president puts in play, we are racist. If we like the president, we are welfare recipients. If we dont like what is going on with anything, we are on one side, and never the other. We cant transition to middle ground because there is no middle ground anymore. Why is this ok? Why do AMERICANS feel the need to "deport the sorry !@#$'s" because their opinions arent the same? Why do AMERICANS think that it is ok to harm another person based on their lifestyle?
Wake up call-
ITS NOT OK TO WANT TO INFLICT HARM ON ANOTHER PERSON BASED ON THEIR OPINIONS OR BELIEFS!
Its not ok to bully someone into going with what you deem to be the truth. People are smart. Why make them dumber? Oh yeah, we are actually getting dumber. Some would say its because of poison. Some would say its because of TV. Some would say its because we have been getting dumber for over 300 years. Depending on the source. Some people say a major planet is going to strike earth in a month. Some people take this as gospel. Some people laugh uncontrollably over this because they know that we would have been warned, or seen the signs. Some think the signs are already here.
Point is- who has the audacity to say someone is wrong because of the opinions of someone they havent even met? Answer- EVERY single person who has ever told someone they were wrong without ever investigating for themselves. And most of us are guilty. Most of us really have no actual knowledge of the events that have led up to the formation of an honest opinion, based on experience. We only have the opinions of another person, who most likely has some form of bias based on life experiences of themselves. Unobjective opinions are rare. Unobjective information is also rare. Its up to the individual to take what information is useful to that individual, and use it accordingly.
The really big point-
Much of the worlds problems could be solved if we could get one and all to get educated. Push people to want to know what is actually going on. Im not saying that we all have to have the same opinion- we dont. We should all have a moral obligation to be human and not allow people to be harmed by a tyrannical force. THATS ALL.
COH will be enforced. Feel free to have an opinion on this, just dont threaten, degrade, or bully anyone. It will not be tolerated.
