You mean you never took the pill to wake up from the matrix?

People, as it turns out, are extremely jealous.
Corporations, as it turns out, are experts at pandering to this jealousy of others and selling People the means to no longer feel Jealous of others.

Selfishness only plays a part when these People and Corporations fail to realize that they are destroying the only planet that we have for the sake of a few trinkets and for the ability to show off in front of others.

I am utterly convinced, as much as Hitler was convinced, of a genetic marker which dictates who suceeds in a life of selfishness, greed, and who are extremely jealous.

You might think that I'm racist, you would be right, I'm against the human race utterly destroying my only home in this galaxy and leaving my home for dead. The only difference between me and Hitler is, I don't care about skin color or what race you are. ALL you need to be is Human and you are on my bad side.

I've gotten to the point today that other people need to prove themselves to me first that they can learn to conserve and change their insane power hungry ways before I will even be their friends. The people who consume too much are just absolutely REVOLTING and selfish human beings to be around.

Why am I so angry? Because I have seen SUV families utterly destroy and pave over the exact same area that I used to live in as a kid, the place that I grew up in is now a play toy for the rich.

The area where I used to go fishing in, is now a 4 lane highway.
The forest that I used to play in, is now suburban housing development.
The school that I used to go to, is now 4x the size and has a widescreen tv in every classroom, with air conditioning and undercover play areas.
The house that I used to live in, is now surrounded by 4x4's and SUV's and Sports Cars.

That's why I'm pissed off.

The combination of all 3, selfishness, greed and jealousy will dictate just how well you do in school, just how well you do in the workforce, and just how well you pander to the government and pop out fifteen babies, just to show off to your other jealous friends.

Enjoy the bitter pill bud. And welcome to the club

Here is your free complimentary box of tissues, because I cannot see a way out of this insane masterminded chaos that we have created, that is what it is, sheer and utter disorganized and uncontrolled chaos, driven by hormones alone.

Nobody thinks with rationality or logic anymore, everybody is merely riding the gravy train to the very bottom based upon pure HORMONES and the genes that power their train of thought, even to the point of REGULARLY killing innocent people on the roads just so they can get to work, or home, faster.

That right there, the automocar is a pure snapshot of sheer utter selfishness.

Lets all manufacture billions of steel coffins and organize their movement in a way that if one hits another one it will KILL you or somebody that you hold dear.

All for the sake of just consuming junk that we throw out on a regular basis and a mythical thing called Money.

The Romans would be proud, but remember their empire was forged with blood, and so is ours.

Nothing lasts forever, ya know.

The single greatest failure of the Modern Intellectual 20th and 21st century is that no Scientist has ever been given the right to say publicly that Consumerism is an extremely strong addiction just as strong as Drugs and must be hindered at all costs for fear of destroying our own planet through over consumption.

But no.. that would hurt sales.

"But we’re addicted. Addicted to growth, to more, to bigger, to faster, to status, to the illusion of certainty, to convenience, to mediocrity, to an unhealthy and unbalanced level of comfort, to processed food, to conformity, to non-stop round-the-clock everything. We’re addicted to consuming the planet, and with it all the elemental building blocks that make up our flesh and bone. We’re killing both our egocentric and holistic selves, and we can’t seem to help either. "

Even I know ALL of this, and even though it is screaming in my face I still cannot kick the habit of consumption. Though I DO TRY and buy useful ****, regularly I will still just zone out and spend all of my cash on stuff I don't actually need. Then I'll wake up out of the zone that I was in and say "what the hell did I just buy??"

Its JUST LIKE mind control! Nay, it IS mind control.

And to top it all off, people have kids in DROVES, in sheer utter blindness of the fact that we are heavily and grossly over populated, they listen to the dumb politicians and say "sir yes sir, I will have as many babies as you want me to!, its good for the economy!"...

And then there is the parents who had kids in the 80s and 90s who just thought everything was all roses and sunshine because they spent the majority of their lives growing up on farmland, so they were conditioned towards having no or very little people around, so therefore they think that this whole overpopulation thing is just a temporary thing, and by the time they had kids it was too late because they were already born.

The 80s and 90s was the best decade we will ever experience in our lifetimes, know how I know? Because I just do. People won't stop at 7 billion, there are far too many people on the planet who think that 7 billion is a challenge, something to be conquered and surpassed like a dumb college geek while on their way to FOOTBALL COLLEGE.

Soon it will be 8-9-10 billion, then we will go past that, 11 12 13 14 billion.

At about 13 billion there will be garbage covered streets year round in new york, public transportation will cost $50 a ticket, bottled water will be $5, a taxi is now a minivan and suburbia will be a crime ridden gut wrenching death filled hell hole full of burnt out and crushed Honda CRX's (by 4x4's and their drivers looking for spare gas, "oh your car is fuel efficient is it? That must mean its got lots of petrol!")

Know why? Ever wondered why the population growth rate is dwindling? Its because of idiocracy, the efficiency and prevalence of consumerism is so great it is actually forcing us to procreate without a purpose in life, without intelligence, so therefore the machine of growth, the ability to create new markets for consumption, the ability for us to escape earth and colonize other planets is decreasing as each decade goes on, our global intelligence is dropping like a rock. People spend $5 billion dollars a year on ringtones alone, that has to tell you something.

Also, Since when was a human being a good substitute for a tree?

A tree gives me shade to read a book under.
A tree gives me oxygen to breathe.
A tree prevents soil erosion and landslides (which kill people).
A tree fertilizes the soil with its dead leaves.
A tree gives me food and provides lumber for a house to live in.

What does a modern human being provide?
Uneducated offspring kids.
An addiction to a finite resource.
Mass Deforestation and the extinction of species.
Pain and Misery.
Debt.
Pollution.
Greed, Lust, Murder, Selfishness, Attitude problems, Ignorance and Violence.

Please tell me you don't want to live in that kind of a world, full of more of these kinds of people.

And you know what the saddest thing is? This topic is shunned, its taboo, its destroyed as being racist or some bull**** before its even ever given the light of day.

Know why? Because its against the corporations will.

Education is the key to zero population growth.
If Italy can achieve this, so can others.
Education and health overcome all detriments.

Wow. You compare yourself to Hitler (who are we to disagree?), you admit you are a racist (then deny it) and you declare yourself to be anti-human.

So you are angry at the world, bitter and lashing out.

Who in their right mind would want to be a part of your "club" of bitterness? Your long-winded rants are not only politicized; when you declare that you hate humanity it sounds like you have emotional and psychological problems.

It is all a matter of perception. Everyone looks at the world in a different way.
There is not one truth, there are as many truths as there are people.

If you look around and get disappointed because all those other people do not chime in with your truth, you can grow bitter. But who's to blame? Everybody else has just as much right to ask you to comply to their views. Do you?
Course not, you'd be crazy.
That applies to everyone.
You have to agree to disagree from time to time.

I might be wrong in this. I believe it makes sense, but will for the sake of my own argument not claim absolute truth here.
