Dabeaner's great ... found myself laughing to tears reading his comments. All "YOU, with your stupid religions" are in trouble lol. Luckly I can squeeze outta this one since I am as some have called me an "unbeliver" (lol again).
Mr. Yvens, perhaps you missed the "you" part in Dabeaner's message. Forget about the government and/or the police to save you. The government is not for you and me, the government is for those who bring cheques and/or cash. So unless you have lobbyists working for you on Capitol Hill, you're outta luck amigo. Nobody in government gives two you know what about you or me or any like us. About the police ... here on the cop cars it says "To serve and protect". Balls ... it's more like "To harass and bully". I had more fireweapons pointed at me (by cops) two weekends ago while holding a camera then if I was shooting photographs in Mogadishu. And I have the photos to prove it.
Back to the "You" part now: it is up to you and I and every other single person on this planet to take back our governments if we want them to work for us. We need to get rid of the politicians in power, we need to change some laws that they have made for themselves and so on. For now, our governments have been highjacked by corporations and bankers who control them through the people that lobby for them. We need people to go out on the streets ... look at Greece and follow. It is up to You.
This is your statement about Mr. Dabeaner I think "turning your back on the problem and finding comfort in blaming the mass."
I personally do not think he is turning his back on the problem that would be ignorance and he didn;t ignore the question - he gave an answer. Perhaps it can be said that you looking at governments to solve the problem of poverty is your way of turning your back on the problem. (You can look at it that way too ...)
The thing is, Dabeaner is right. It is up to YOU (by "you" please understand that it means everyone not just you) to act. And he was right about the comment of over-breeding. We are multiplying at such a rate that basic resources such as fresh water will become scarce in the next century. As we multiply, we diminish this planet's resources and there will not be enough of everything for everyone. Thirty thousand kids die each day of hunger related diseases ... how can people have more kids when so many kids die each day because they have no food? That is my question!
