    This country is pure ego and we live in our heads. Who thinks it's time to let go?

      Let go of what?

        Our selve's. We cling to so many concepts and it only separates us from the rest of humanity. It's the whole big brother thing and it's gone to our heads.

          Whatever it is you are advocating "we" let go of would have to be done at once, and on masse.

          Otherwise, there will be total confusion. I believe, anarchy is the right word.
          Let's each one live as he pleases. Pretends to be (their own ) god.

          Society would collapse overnight. (IMHO)

            Perhaps mass collapse is necessary in order to function as a whole. We honestly need to stop worshiping people and act as ourselve's for a while. Pure entertainment of the senses is destroying us as a people.

              "We" need to realize that we are all Sovereign individuals and are responsible for our own knowledge.  The highest authority on the planet is the individual, anything done to the individual without their consent is illegal!  That is not to say we can break common law, we do not as individuals fall under corporate/maritime jurisdiction.

                We are under the control of media and what is fashionable. We idolize people that could care less about us and it is almost making us a retarded people.

                  Not all of us!

                    No, though I do see it as a great majority. What to eat, what to buy, who to follow, where to be and the list goes on and on, ad-nausium.

                  I for one would appreciate you not use the word "We"

          I agree with you.

          America being No.1 power in the world enjoys authority but it does not share the responsibility it owes towards humanity at large.

    I think you are describing yourself, mis.

      Maybe I like to talk to others. Is that not why we communalize? I speek my mind and while it is not up to your standards, it is my mind.

        That's spelled 'speak'.
        Now we're getting somewhere:
        'I speek my mind and while it is not up to your standards, it is my mind.'
        You advise everyone to let go of their ego etc, but you can't seem to let go of yours.

          Whatever. the meaning is loud and clear. Why do I bother you so? Can I be of any help to you? What is eating at you so, that you want to pick me apart?

            Whatever?  Poser.

    But don't worry, I won't bother you anymore.  I hope you do me the same favor.

    You are so correct. So many revolve their lives over the commercial picture of health we should look like. What politician we should follow. Every aspect of life is covered to enable the follow to follow the message way. People need to stop living in the visions of others and start thinking for themselves. Come to our own conclusions and act on that, not someone else's idea and values.
