    To truly show the world what they want you have to show them what they need and wait for them to want what they need. A change of perspective can ignite the passions of the mind and heart. All things are not created equal, nor are all men. We are a spectrum of lives as complex and unique as anything else in this world. Unlike nature we have the ability to choose, to understand the effect of our choices, and act upon the information in future situations. We also have the abundance of knowledge of generations before, we have analyzed ourselves throughout history. Now we have an ability to take everything and analyze it to the point of putting a face on reality. We choose not to see the true face of humanity because it would be like seeing the Face of God, and to see that which our hearts cannot bear to witness we fear that we would burn in the light. We look out in space for life and destroy the life right here in greater numbers than the first million planets that surround us. We wish to see sentient life and yet are divided ourselves by race. Religion defined by minds that are too limited to conceptuaize the mind of another human being and yet believe they know the mind and will of God. Humanity has so much wasted potential if the people who actually understand the world would stop trying to rule it but guide it for the betterment of all, show the world the path and have them help to build it. We don't need a leader, we need leaders of all races and creeds to stand up in the name of humanity, to help raise others, to allow the growth potential of humanity to truly be defined by mankind. The information the average person can find in a newspaper is more than most people ever had in a lifetime only a few hundred years ago. Information isn't the problem, we are bombarded by information every day, but the information drives the economy, politics, public opinion, and the ways that the average person can do in their communities is lacking significantly. Help people make the world around them better by opening up opportunities for them to participate in making changes towards a better humanity.

      Tactical Bacon 8 months ago

      OK It shuts down because if Congress doesn't approve a spending can't really spend. Hence, the government shuts down until the funds are properly appropriated.

    the sun was actually cooler during the time of dinosaurs. The reason for warmer conditions on the planet during their hundreds of millions of years of existence was the fact that there was no polar ice caps when they were here. There was no land masses at the poles when dinosaurs lived. Google images of what the Earth looked liked when dinos did exist. Remember the super continent Pangia? No land at the poles means no land to support polar ice caps. No ice caps mean much more radiation bombards the planet. Mammals existed during dino time but were forced to live under ground and only foraged at night. It took the ice ages to create conditions ideal for mammals.

      They didn't send a rocket launcher into space they sent a rocket into space. They launched the rocket from the rocket launcher. And the United States government was not involved it was a private company that funded the enterprise. So that money would've never gone to anybody but the company's shareholders. You can tell your wife for me that she's an idiot.

    All of the A__holes in Both houses of Congress always thinks they are so damn brilliant, and always saying "everything is so complicated that the average American cannot understand what they have to do". Well all they do is " Stonewall" debate and put together Committees that NEVER ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING, and then approve EVERYTHING around MIDNIGHT, before AMERICA is shutdown. WE AVERAGE AMERICANS TAXPAYERS have to pay the ARROGANT, SELF-SERVING A__holes a outrageous income to make the decisions that probably some MORONS could make the CORRECT decisions faster, especally the MORONS that shows up every night on the TV news stations ,showing " WE THE PEOPLE" just how senile most of them are.

    Seriously, these people do not care about anyone but themselves. Down with all failed institutions! Is this what we as humans want, lots of humanitarian issues, not American. Are you tired of labels, separation from each other and our natural world? What are we allowing? I'm always interested in a rebuttal!

    • D H
      D H 8 months ago

      Lord Trzeciak Teacher to student ratio is important. Not because the teacher has to control the classroom, but so that the act of learning can take place in the students. A 1:20 ratio is ok. 1:15 is better. 1:40 is impossible - the kids never get heard, and individually they matter less. If we are to maintain the rights of individuals, government will have to occur at a manageable level. A unified world government means oppression. America is the freest country because it maintains representation at all levels and institutions keep each other in check - decentralization of power is the principle that maintains freedom. World unity is irrelevant. The rights and equality of individuals is everything to everyone.
