You obviously haven't read much history or at least don't understand
it very well. Before the creation of banking, capital formation,
and money lending, humanity lived in abject misery. You live
better than the very richest person on the entire planet just
a few hundred years ago, let alone before the advent of banking.
As capital formation moved from being tribal to becoming mercantile
to eventually becoming capitalism as practiced today, you can
see a parallel improvement in more and more lives of the people
of each of these eras. In short, your objection to the money
lenders is silly, ad hominem and utterly without merit until/unless
the practice fraud, force, or threat.
You are smoking crack. Nothing has changed? Since when. There
has been more change for the positive in the past 100 years all
over this planet than the past 10,000 years of recorded history.
Again, you must be hitting the pipe. You desperately need to read
a good volume on world history. There are - on the whole - *fewer*
wars today than ever, certainly insofar as the West participates.
(The various tribal sewers around the world manage to maintain
a tradition of constant warfare, but they are footnotes on the
larger stage of the planet.)
And here we see your class bigotry. Since you are evidently not
of one of the privileged class, you hate them. Could it be because
you feel inadequate in that you cannot accomplish what they have?
Sheer lunacy. Those flags represent more freedom and opportunity
for more people over the span of their existence than any other
single human culture before. Yes, all three of these nations
have had their naughty moments, but they are minor in the large
context of human history. Slavery? The West was involved for
300-400 years, but Africa has an unbroken tradition of slaving
*to this day*. Violence, war, and murder? It's been part of
every culture including the three nations you cite. But in each
of those nations it has been a diminishing activity for decades.
Continue to point out the manifest evil of people like Clinton and
I am not enslaved by the wealthy, the money lenders, the military,
and all the rest of your hobby horse enemies. I am enslaved - to
the extent that I am - by my fellow citizens. People like you
who are the beneficiaries of free markets, capitalism, and personal
liberty, but who now wish to turn their backs on these things because
the outcomes aren't equal enough to suit them. I don't fear the
government anywhere near as much as I fear arguments like yours -
that wealth is inherently evil, that power is one vast conspiracy,
and that banking is the instrument of oppression. You're views
are terrifying because - to the extent that people believe these
insane notions - they will turn their backs on the very things
that actually keep them relatively free.

You are incapable of abstract thought?
The BIG picture, idiot!
Zoom back a little and take a close look at that 'freedom' of yours.
Freedom only exists in the minds of dreamers and then only within the
confines of what your overlords allow you to have.
I thought you were brighter than that... in a Rovian way of course.
(I live a better-than-average life-style and enjoy the toys money buys
me. I have never smoked crack. But you have way too many buttons I can
push for me to continue a conversation with Rove-Light. (You're not as
bright as Karl.)
