Open your eyes.
Open your mind.
Turn off your television.
Feed you brain, not your belly.
People I beg of you to wake up.

Huh?So its not every day that I come across something so thought provoking that I actually stop everything that I am doing and concentrate solely on a given subject although I so have to say that for once in a very long time many things are starting to fit together. The last part of the sentence may sound a bit odd but imagine yourself at a table with a puzzle in front of you, a puzzle which has more pieces than you can count and a puzzle that of which you have never seen before. But this is no ordinary puzzle for it has no edges, and there is no ending.Huh?5 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
Are you scratching your head wondering what the hell I am talking about? I am too.
As you begin to connect one piece to another you will undoubtedly begin to draw conclusions as your mind is racing for an answer to the countless questions that arise throughout this process of your construction of the puzzle. With each answer comes an array of questions, questions that you unconsciousl

Your talking like you know what its all about.
Lost in time with your ignorant ways,
Never really knowing what you say.
You walk around as if you were blind,
On the streets, on the grind.
Trapped in a maze with your ignorant ways,
While you stumble around lost in a daze.
I wonder if you hear the words I speak,
Wondering if its the truth you do seek.
My words they do flow,
In the same way you reap what you sow.
The worlds weight is more than one man can bare,
For that is something for us all to share.
They divide us as if we were slaves,
People alive stuck in a grave.
The message from William Lynch was delivered,
In 1712 from the banks of the James River.
Pit the young against the old,
This is how the story was told.
Men against women, lights against darks
That is how you tear them apart.
The message of envy, distrust and fear,
Is how you control the slaves he did make clear.
You would think he have come far from that day,
Yet it see

Do you see me knocking on your door telling you what you should believe? I am stuffing Atheism down your throat? If we want to "find" God we know exactly where to find him every Sunday morning, and occasionally during the week.
"There is so much evidence that points to God but the hard thing is that only people who are even slightly open minded can even begin to see it"
Maybe through your perception, such a statement may be true but through the perceptions of others such a statement may be false.
"Its hard for me to sit back and watch people walk down a road that will destroy them. Dang free will!"
Perhaps it is you that is on the wrong path, how many religions are there in the world? How is it that YOURS and ONLY YOURS is the right path, while everyone else is wrong?
Tragically Flawed SystemI am sick and tired of the labels that are perpetuated through the media and society and the division it has created amongst the citizens of countries around the world.Tragically Flawed System5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
What do you not understand?
It is not the fault of the liberals, nor is it the fault of the conservatives. Finger pointing and childish becking that is associated with by-partisanship is going to get you nowhere and it is going to get you there fast.
Again, I ask you.....what do you not understand?
It is the system that is flawed. The system enables and encourages division amongst its population so that the population fights amongst itself over petty and insignificant matters that are perpetuated through the media.
Again, I ask you.....what do you not understand?
Until we put our differences behind us and begin to realize that those in power are in collusion with the wealthy business owners to keep us subservient we will continue to fight amongst one another while we become nothing more
The Nature of the BeastAn interesting concept has sparked some insight into the current state of affairs of the world, although it originates in my favourite punching bag, yes you guessed it, the United States of American.The Nature of the Beast5 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
There was an article I read in which the Director of National Intelligence in the US openly states that we most dangerous terrorist are not foreign, but are domestically bred. They are the Wall Street schmucks who will do anything for the almighty dollar, without hesitation. Although I wish to take this one step further and not point the finger of blame at those on Wall Street for they are nothing more than a product of our environment but I will also point the finger of blame at the enablers......you and me, all of us.

First of all you N.I.M.B.Y. types need to grow up and realize that you are not living in some dream world out of a movie. Welcome to reality, population EVERYONE. I do not care if you think that windmill farms look like shit, if you think they make noise, if you think they will harm nature, if you think they will make the landscape unattractive or whatever excuse you can come up with. If you really worried about this world looking like shit you would not pollute it, you would be organizing an annual cleaning committee in your neighborhood or you would actually pick the litter you pass by so many times a day. If you were really worried about noise you would not drive your car, you would not own an air conditioning unit for your home, and you would not own anything that made noise for that matter. If

Those around me think I am going insane, but to me this is more than a game.
In the end we do not win or loose, but we are left with the legacy in which we choose.
Petty materialism is causing the deterioration or our civilization, but you don't seem to care so long and you get to carry on about with your weekly celebrations.
Money, cars and simply petty things, yet to you blunts, bitches and booze seem more important than food.
You would think that in over 6000 thousand years of human civilization we would come to some sort of realization, yet here are still dreaming of reaching the stars when we can barely feed our own people.
On we march, the blind leading the blind while those brave enough to pave their own way are met with such hatred and disdain. I am not telling you how to go about your life, but I refuse to stand by witnessing the eroding of morals, ethics and values.

The American CesspoolWhat exactly do you consider to be important factors that contribute to the health and well being of not only yourself, but to your family, friends, co workers, neighbours and everyone else? By well being I am referring to economical, social, and ecological needs, do not confuse them with wants, that are essential to a full and healthy lifestyle for an individual and/or a group.The American Cesspool5 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
It is a mistake to imagine that slavery pervades a man's whole being; the better part of him is exempt from it: the body indeed is subjected and in the power of a master, but the mind is independent, and indeed is so free and wild, that it cannot be restrained even by this prison of the body, wherein it is confined. Seneca the Younger
Slavery has taken many forms throughout history, and one may argue that a modern form of slavery still continues to this day as what were once opportunities for well paying middle class jobs are being exported to third world sweat shops.
Our Struggle is Their StruggleSince I have begun tutoring on Saturday afternoons I have noticed the same two individuals sitting outside of the market every week. One who I assume is homeless, and the other plays his keyboard and sells his CDs of what I can only guess is polka music. Every week I drop some change into the case for the musician and I would usually give a dollar or two to the homeless man as well whenever I can. Now I am currently unemployed and I am literally broke. Yet I still am willing to give what I can. Since I am weary of simply giving money to the homeless I have started going through the market and looking for items of food that only cost $1 and giving them to in homeless person instead.Our Struggle is Their Struggle5 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
I am not boasting, nor do I wish to receive any type of praise from anyone. What I would like you to do is to ask yourself this question; What makes you a better person than the homeless or what makes them any less of an individual

To each their own. Some believe there are many gods, others believe there is one, others believe there is none. What does it matter what one believes when it comes to god, you have not provided sufficient proof that there is a "god", in some religions that would constitute a being floating around in the clouds watching over us, and perhaps there is a great power that we are completely unaware of, perhaps there is not.
We are but a spec of sand in this universe and until we put our petty differences behind us we will be stuck in a rut, going nowhere fast.

What Is Real?I wake up and look around the room, breathing deeply I come to grips with the reality of my surroundings as I realize it only a dream. I wipe the sweat from my face while my eyes adjust to the darkness. Fearing that my dream is waiting for me in the depths of my subconscious I slide out of bed, head down the stairs and make my way to the front door. It is there I stand with one hand on the lock and the other on the handle frozen in time. The seconds turn into minutes. With my mind racing I am unaware of exactly how long I stood there, gazing into the depths of my soul. My hand turns slightly and the bolt makes the same click sound it has a thousand times before, but this time there is something distinctly different. The door swings open and the cold, crisp air hit my lungs with such force that I shiver uncontrollably.

Quotes on RevolutionWhen liberty comes with hands dabbled in blood it is hard to shake hands with her.Quotes on Revolution5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
The more there are riots, the more repressive action will take place, and the more we face the danger of a right-wing takeover and eventually a fascist society.
The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives
If by the mere force of numbers a majority should deprive a minority of any clearly written constitutional right, it might, in a moral point of view, justify revolution
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.
Every revolution was first a thought in one man's mind
A great revolution in just one single individual will help achieve a change in the destiny of a society and, further, will enable a change in the destiny of humankind.

The Greatest Ponzi Scheme EverTo follow up on some of my previous deviations I would like to examine the fractional reserve banking system and the financial institutions in light of a recent interview with William K. Black by Bill Moyers I found on the internet titled America's Big Banks Are a Far Larger Fraudulent Ponzi Scheme, although I am going to go one step further and declare that our fractional banking system is an essence a ponzi scheme. The only difference between the fractional reserve banking system and a ponzi scheme is that you are promised a better return on your investment in a ponzi scheme.The Greatest Ponzi Scheme Ever5 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
The easiest way to explain a ponzi scheme is with an example. Lets say that someone promises you a return of 10% a month. The scammer then takes the investors' money and returns a tenth of it at the end of every month and because the investors appear to be getting the returns they were promised, they in turn encourage others to also invest their money in the scheme while r
Change is Possible"When the conscious mind cannot handle the truth it is spared the truth. The unconscious mind comes to the emotional rescue."Change is Possible5 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
If I were to give you an ultimatum, you either change or you die, what would your choice be? It seems like a simple and rather easy choice, does it not? How many of you would choose change? Ask yourself, could you truly change when it mattered the most?
One might assume that 9 out of 10 individuals would choose to change rather than die, yet there is nothing farther from the truth. The odds of you changing are 9 to 1, not for you but against you.
This is why a vast majority of the health care budget in most countries is consumed by a small percentage of the population who suffer from diseases that are well known and behavioural.

I too have a dream, a dream that one day each and every one of us will be able to live in peace and harmony with one another regardless of colour, sex, religion, sexual preference, or any other tool of division. We as a society need to understand that those in power and those with wealth are no different than the slave masters of the past.
