Thanks for resurrecting this, Ygmir.
A lot hasn't changed, but a lot has not.
Been doing some thinking. I think we need to apply some bernr principles here.
We don't wait for deliverance from the sky, nor do we look for someone to blame for our situation. The desert is the desert and we bring our own water.
For my part, anyway, if I have troubles, they are mine and they are here and now, or they don't exist at all (except in my imagination). I don't borrow other people's trouble.
My loyalty is for me, my family, and for my closest proven friends. Their troubles are mine. My solutions are theirs.
For somebody on the other side of the world, their situation is abstract for me, I don't know their situation, they may be my foes. At any rate, their troubles are theirs, and their solutions are theirs.
I'm not going to sit around for Obama or Romney or John Frum (?) to hand me solutions from on high. They don't understand my situation, and I'll be damned if I trust a one of them.
That's going to be my manifesto from here on in. How's that?
"At present, we are stealing the future, selling it in the present, and calling it GDP."
