    Human suffering, particularly that of children who don't have any power. Whether it's child abuse, exploitation, neglect, or hunger, I hate to hear about or see the human suffering of children who have no way out.

    What bothers me the most is how brainwashed people are nowadays, it doesn't actually bother me but it does amaze me..I find it absolutely amazing how people believe everything they see on the T.V, & people actually believe the news even though it's ALL obviously biased one way or the other..Most people "still" even today think that their government actually cares about them, when it's governments that's been running the show for centuries, & just look at the state the world is in at the moment..So the main thing that bothers me is how lazy people really are, they don't investigate into the facts themselves & turn a blind eye to all the corrupt politicians/governments/illegal wars etc etc..As long as there's some mind numbing distracting crap on the Tele, the majority of people are happy!lol..Why do people "worship" celebs?, because those people are brainwashed..Whose brainwashed the people?, governments have through the media/news/celebs etc etc..It used to trouble me but it doesn't now, like i say i just find it amazing i really do..For example the Football/Soccer world cup is on this year in Brasil, & is probably costing 30 or so billion dollars..Meanwhile kids are starving everywhere, but no problem coz everyone who's not starving is looking forwards to the world cup!..You watch they'l make out it's really important to do well in the world cup, it'l be in all the newspapers & on the news every day for a month, meanwhile no mention of the starving kids etc....Sport stars, actors, singers, T.V Presenters, Radio DJ's, Rich Greedy People etc, WHY do people worship these greedy people?..One reason, & that's because their brainwashed into it.....Well i said it doesn't bother me anymore, but it clearly still does!lol

    All of the bugs which invade my house no matter how much I kill them. In the winter I hardly have any heat and summer hardly has any A/C!

    Extreme problems have always existed in one form or another but today's sleasy and amoral approach to certain aspects of life really gets my goat. Morality seems to be at a cross roads again - despite the lessons learned (or not) from WW2. 
    * Children have always been exploited much to my amazement and shame - in the UK children worked and died down the coalmines for goodness sake and this was only in the 19th century!!
    Nowadays children are still subject to horrendous obscenities and we seem helpless to stop it, despite centuries of progress.

    *  Corporate greed and tax evasion - profit shouldn't be a dirty word but I think it's becoming just that. Giant companies will do anything to keep their fat cats happy and vice versa, including dodge tax. The environment is suffering too, needlessly in some cases.

    My own ignorance. I am busy trying to clean my own mirror, as I know that by doing so, I can be of better service to aspiring mankind. This world, I feel, will improve as I myself improves. I feel that peace begins with me.

    Willful ignorance.

    Some people think they know it all or know everything they need to know about some subjects.

    For instance, some atheists are positive there is no God. Some Christians think their interpretation of the Bible is perfect and condemn the interpretations of others. And some people simply don't care about others--they only think of themselves and their own needs, so they lie, cheat, steal and worse.

    A great war is coming. This was foretold nearly 2,000 years ago and even earlier. We are in the End Times of biblical prophecy. How do we know? For one, Israel has been reborn; the generations of its suffering for its wickedness before Babylon are now over. We also have the falling of the Great Star named Wormwood occurring in 1986; it spread its pestilence across a third of the world, just as Revelations had predicted ("wormwood" in Ukrainian is "Chernobyl" and all stars are nuclear reactors).

    The antidote for such willful ignorance (arrogance) is humility. That is what the coming war will provide -- plenty of opportunity for humility. It will break down the stiff necks of Homo sapiens and make these physical bodies kneel in submission. Some will choose wisely; some will not.

    The merchants of evil have been on the march for centuries. Their plans are coming to full fruition with the New World Order, the United Nations' Agenda 21 and the end of national sovereignty, personal freedoms and personal property.

    There will be great suffering. But there are things we can do to minimize that suffering. We can take responsibility for the condition we find Earth in right now. We are responsible! If we don't take that responsibility, then we become irresponsible. We close our spiritual eyes.

    Now is the time to open those spiritual eyes and to give the only thing of permanence -- Love.

      In the UK buddy many of us are becoming "Freemen on the land" which means we are only accountable under "Common Law"  which was & always has been set in stone, & not "Corporate Law"..Your constitution, probably was set in stone as well, look

    I am troubled by the idea, that given a choice of black or white, good or evil, left or right...most people will just willingly choose a side. Whenever presented with two possibilities, there is also the possibility that both are right and wrong. So why don't more people choose to remain neutral and judge things from a place of acceptance. Acceptance that even what you disagree with is only your point of view.
    To sum it up, I am troubled that most people are more willing to choose sides, rather than understand what another viewpoint means. All wars begin with choosing sides. So do all problems of the human condition that appear to be without solutions. Freewill is no excuse for ignorance and lack of critical thinking. That of course, is just my opinion. I am open to interpretation and the bigger picture, even when it comes to my own biases. Great question. Keep on Hubbing. Blake4d
