What kind of mainstream crap books do you read? What kind of mass media do you lick the balls of? Waht kind of boring women do you fuck?
What kind of man are you?
Democracy, Capitalism, Communism, Fascism, religions and atheism have all failed, time to reinvent the wheel...should there even be a wheel?
It's called evolution...
Seriuosly confuses the crap out of me, this evolve but not by the survival of the fittest, god is crap or isnt he? religion is definitely garbage but green isnt a religion, but thats not quite right either.
Spirituality is great but spirituality is about things that cannot be measured by any craft we here possess...sound mystical to me
My head hurts said the werewolf of london
Well, we're doing it...thanks to this here dialogue....
Why is it so confusing? Everything has a place. Everything a reason.
Wrote a paper about Green being the new religion. Certainly didn't conclude that. Instead I focused on how Green all religions actually are (i.e. Quran advising not to pollute a river upstream of a village).
Course some would say questioning everything is heresy...even anarchy
They said that about Galilei (Galileo to the small folk :/ ). They said that about Da Vinci and even Isaac Newton was accused of being a heretic but really just a Christian scientist. They are all evolutionary thinkers. Doesn't make them Godless or spiritually dead.
Hell, even Christ was persecuted as a revolutionary. And looked waht happened...we are going through another revolution of sorts.
If you can detach yourself from prejudicial thoughts long enough you can free yourself enough to see a much bigger picture. A picture in which we are a part of systems and all inter-connected. Am I advocating a religion here or a philosophy? Not at all. As the existing systems fit into other systems.
Do we have to measure everything? To judge? Spirituality is what you make of it. Although even here there is an evolutionary thought process.
Many are not looking at GDP as a successful First Developed World.
The Happiness Index is now being deployed to measure the 'success of nations like the Happy Planet Index http://www.happyplanetindex.org
It was actually started in Bhutan http://www.grossnationalhappiness.com
but the UK has a take on this.http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog ... faction-uk
If you work 60 hours per week and have the highest GDP and afford all kinds of material things are you the most happy? The most spiritual?http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/2 ... de=1140841
Not what you might expect...just say'n
What the fuck is Belize doing in the top ten? All it is is a haven for fat white chefs
Yeah, the old ways are certainly the easiest. The most profitable. Why evolve? Why change? (especially when you have a doomsday or afterlife mentality or an investment portfolio that is in the here and now and not 100 years from now.
We are definitely in a Renaissance period. A time of conflict and of thought.
A great time to be alive no?!
I take great pride in our lesser fortunate cousins being able to fend for themselves with less resources, being isolated and not of good education or breeding stock.
