    Im amazed at the inability of some people to

    communicate effectively. Instead of a polite "no thank you" i get either a screwed up glare , or entirely ignored. Why do we treat every new person as a threat? My best friends all started off as strangers. Whats so wrong with talking to someone you dont know? Im always...

    Manners!

    Manners seem to be missing in so many aspects of modern life. I know there are many of the older generations here who say my generation have poor manners, and I would agree, and debate that perhaps it is a fruit of the cosmopolitan society. I am always polite, I thank and I...

    Capitalism Is The One To Blame

    Humanity is dying and we are taking the world we live in, and all life in it, with us. Our suicidal tool? capitalism. Replacing compassion and fellowship with  cold buy/sell relationships. See one starving to death? well, society must not help that person, is that person's...
