It seems to me, that if we actually abided by the Ten Commandments and Golden Rule, we wouldn't be where we are.

Most of us choose not to. Even in so called Golden Eras, we refused to abide by rules of decency.

That's a perspective. I would say that we are where we are despite not always being decent. I mean, the world is pretty great, it is getting better on average, but also it's not like life is perfect. So much wrong with it, and it's mostly how people act that influences that. All you need for life is food, clothes, and shelter...

I mean, we still have problems as a whole when it comes to just living as humans. 

I watch the news and all I see are a bunch of lost animals trying to justify killing and hurting each other..as if extinction is impossible. Trust mother nature, if not me, then...it is not. 

It's like..Gandhi, Jesus, Mandela? These people came and told us what is obvious... basically, stop treating human beings and yourselves like animals. Like, where is our humanity? People out here killing people, stealing..I'm not even going to get into the rest of base animal instinct as it pertains to wrong.

Anyway..

The animals will live like animals. And the faithful will live faithfully.

Not sure why so many people are trying to make other people's lives harder, it doesn't make their life easier in the end and life is already hard enough..

Utilitarianism does have its flaws after all lol

"God is dead" is old lol, what is this the 1600s? 

I keep on having to remind people that the concept of God when compared to the line of time/entropy of the existence of the universe is literally just as novel as...well idk, the development of our prefrontal cortexes ...cortexi?? lol

Listen, stop exalting the shadows of your cave wall. 

So, I hard disagree with you.

Anyway, what is this current history? 

People are so lost. 

I mean, we do have a sense of good vs evil right?

Some of y'all are going to make orangutans not homo sapiens I'm telling y'all...

Capital R reality real life isn't granted nor is it guaranteed. 

If you don't believe in God believe in mother nature... choose a hill, damn, and humble yourselves you humans. 

I'm literally dying out here, it's funny how funny it is to me. I should be so sad for you all but hey I'm just 1 man lol

40 billion humans have existed so far..let's try to get to 40 billion more. Don't kill people. 

Have some respect for our species, jeez 

I'm African and I'm laughing because I thought we were the animals? +++++ off bruh, we're all humans, no one is God, we live through God for the betterment of our species. 

You people do not take life seriously.

It's sacred. 

So stop. 

Don't be animals you humans!!!

Love your humanity. Flaws and all :)

What languages are they talking about? Obviously not Spanish...

As an African I'm curious lol, Africans have tribal languages..no instructors here in America, not even in Africa really except maybe the old people in the villages, but nothing formal..it's a language..it's organic. Maybe that's why they've never heard of them, it's not their language nor their culture lol

It's not like I know all the tribal languages of Africa, I only know one kinda, and that's my father-tongue..

Are Africans the immigrants they are talking about? 

Look around, Africans largely help the country...and Americans are all immigrants basically..

Some of you people need to go back to Europe, oh wait...then they'd be immigrants..

Lol, man did not make land..

Anyway you're supposed to build bridges, not walls...

2000 years. Love thy neighbor. 2000 years. They still don't get it. 

I'm just going to live morally and watch bad karma come back to haunt the faithless. 

I feel sorry for people though. 

America is getting worse as a moral nation.

Africa is a mess too.

What kind of world am I growing up in?

I'm 34...what is wrong with these people?

What happened to our parents? No adults in the room? Nowhere?

I'm just going to focus on my farm and make sure I love everyone in my immediate vicinity as best I can. 

And then I will make sure the world I left was better than the one I was given lol

Where is a priest when you need one? 

Oh wait, even them..I just need a community of faithful and loving people and the rest of the world?

Don't kill me or my people because I am fighter..

Politics...

Power really is corrupting. 

Do people want to be good or bad?

You do get a choice. It's called free will.

Idk, life is better when you keep away from wrong and keep doing good.

Then you'll deserve your blessings and not feel guilty or be a burden to the rest of human society.

Society needs to kick immoral people out, not immigrants, but the immoral wherever they come from.

More important than where you are from, is where you are going. 

Where are we going as a species?

An interesting interview with authors of a book about Trumps white rural base. It's called  "White Rural Rage: The Threat to American Democracy." 

 

Basically, they believe they got screwed by globalization, on so many levels, and they know it's not going to change. No politicians or economic policies are going to change that. They are pissed at the system. Donald Trump despite not being them and not doing a damned thing for them gave them a conduit to give the middle finger to the world. 

Despite having outsized Political power via the Senate, EC, and a Trump Presidency they failed to reap the benefits.

Trump has not and will not improve their lives, but he does give them a platform to channel their rage, xenophobia, racism, and force their cultural biases about God, guns, and gays upon our Society. They more than any other group desire and welcome a RW Autocracy.

The authors through their research point out the best path forward for rural whites is to create a coalition with rural minorities, esp Native Americans to create a larger base. But, they refuse to do that because of their racism.

Pretty much nails it - Rural america has been undergoing changes since the 1880's when industrialization was becoming the dominant economic driver over what was an agrarian society for the first 150 years since the countries founding.

And these morons scream about communism & socialism all the while it's capitalism that has altered their areas more than anything

I found a longer interview with one of the authors, Tom Shaller, who really rips into Elise Stefanik and other wealthy hypocritical R's for using Rural whites and Culture Wars as political invective and votes to benefit themselves.

These hypocritcal R's accuse Dems of dividing the Nation.  Yet, they constantly attack and criticize those who live in Cities, Blue Districts or States. Those who are different, those who oppose them. When they are the ones doing all the dividing.

It's worth the listen no matter what you're political persuasion.

I am more and more convinced that we in a war of late stage wealthy Capitalist elitists who through their money, power, and media are getting us to wage what we believe a political or cultural war against one another.

The end result only being they win and get everything, while one half of the country gets to feel good about owning the Libs despite getting phucked in the ass.

Technology & corporatization had a big effect.............you don't need a little town every 10 miles as the center of commerce for a wagon ride into town or to sell crops ..............that change was beginning back in the 1930's when more trucking began & highways, then freeways (Thanks IKE !) made it easier to long haul products 

And by the 1980's to present the large agri-companies began sucking up land for major corporate farming operations 

This is as much just the changing technology over the years as it is in most industries --- And they can't handle the reality of the results

Well, there's at least one SCOTUS seat that has been bought and possibly another 4 that are loyal to their benefactors & owe their position to one man

Yep, the SCOTUS and Judge Cannon slow walking their cases into pocket vetoes says everything.

We won't have a fair and secure Election in November. The Deep State is cooking up a Trump W. The end purpose being the implementation of the 2025 Project and forever White, RW, neo-Christian, Authoritarianism for the subjects. Full blown Socialism financed by us, for the Elites
