Why Should They Care?

That's what is beyond me, how they can not care for the very planet that gave them life, and the people who make their position in life possible!

I guess it is true that absolute power corrupts absolutely! It especially corrupts the mind, and rots the heart. Someday though, they will die off, and perhaps this world, run by a new generation of leaders, will be better off. I think that old men should not be allowed in government offices, only people who are still learning about life should be in positions of power. Old men are not necessarily wise men, and these days, if in a position of power, old men are evil men.

 

They say the desire for money is the root of all evil. Perhaps if the people of earth had not allowed money to ever exist, and had used a barter system instead, we would all be better off, own land, have food, and everything we need, the playing field would be more even, because today, it seems the less work you do, the more money you make, until you can actually just be sitting around and doing nothing, and people are breaking their backs elsewhere to make you rich! It's a sick thing, totally sick.

Thanks EnglishR0se! You give me hope that there are young people out there who care and are intelligent enough to see the truth. I agree, old people are the bane of the earth.<br />
I fight for these things because I have 4 children and 3 grandchildren (so far) and i worry about their future. One of my pictures in my pic folder is of my grandson and his cousin, titled "These are NOT future soldiers"<br />
I grew up in the turbulent times of the 60's and 70's, we saw our good leaders murdered, shot in the head by these bad men, and we can not let them win by killing good men.<br />
We know who they are, but we have our hands tied against prosecuting them, by the greedy people who hold office, and by the old senile supreme court members who won't step down.<br />
Nancy Pelosi wouldn't even hear of impeaching Bush, even though she knows that his faction pulled off 9/11, perhaps because they would have to impeach Cheney too, or he would have become president, and he was one old senile scary murderer dude who would and still will stop at nothing to get what he wants. (I myself think Cheney is certifiably insane)<br />
As for the Supreme Court, I think that such an important board of people should be made up of young people, not old people.<br />
Their experiences do not make them wiser, only more susceptible to bribery, and 'greedy thinking'.<br />
I do try to mentor, and teach my kids truth and honesty, and that they must stand up for their rights.<br />
Thanks again for your thoughtful and thought provoking comment, EnglishR0se.

Taxes on barter? I doubt it, they are private dealings in which no government would have a right to even know about.<br />
Federal taxes are illegal. Watch "America: Freedom to Fascism".<br />

Federal Income Tax is expressly forbidden under the original US Constitution. There had to be an Amendment to the Constitution to explicitly authorize it.<br />

Are we free? Are we brave? Or have we given up on our home?

The powerful have a stronghold and the rest of us just aren't willing to bind together to change things, or we just don't know how.

Well, just because there is no currency doesn't mean greed will go away. They will tax things like food and possessions to trade for whatever. And I don't think the quality of leaders will improve ever. Not with this system.

I don't see it improving. The kids after me - they scare me. So self-centered, clueless yet over-opininated. Bad combination.
