A country is run by its media, and not just in America, but in most other countries. Everyone belives what they see and what they hear, because that is what they have known all their life. Americans were just the best example. <br>The media of every country is similar to the different religions. Each and every country has its own "bible" which it tryly belives in. All countries belive their way is the best and the rest of the world should fallow them and read their bible. Some religions are bigger then others, the US is one of the highest ones with most of the power.<br>By the end, none of the religions are right but they have one thing in common, the expansion of their power till there is only 1 left.<br>The game "Rysk" which talks about expansion and human evolution is not over as not enough are seeing the game. Humans have been doing the same mistakes through history and they are doing them as we speak. They started fighting over ressources since the beginnings of known time. They wanted more territory for more ressources. Look at all the wars through history starting from the Neanderthal man. Ressources were always the end reason for practically every war . They were always there and always will be, even in space and after space.<br>Each and every war reflects the average human stage in evolution and the human thinking from that time. By looking at the fact they have a loop factor in common, I am trying to figure out when will humanity be able to break this awefull loop and move on to the next level. A few other species have reached this level already and did pass it. Humanity is so far behind that it is hard to get to a really close frame of time.<br>_________________________________________________<br><br>I am waiting for your name callings for those that didn't understand the above or those who disagree.

I am rendered speechless by your meandering pseudo-dissertation. You evaded my answer entirely, shoving instead this torrent of gobbledegook across the table at me. Ugh. No thanks.<br><br>When you are ready to explain yourself rather than concoct fantastic fabrications involving mangled words, self-exaltation, mystical level-hopping and the like, get back to me and we'll try again.<br><br>max
particularly the view that notions of nationhood should be disposed of the minute they cause one discomfort?<br><br>You know, I felt a little iffy today about the state of healthcare in this country...<br><br>That's it!!! We're packing up and moving to Uruguay!!!<br><br>dj, c'mon man. You're basically pissing off about 99.9999999999999% of the forum members here with your 'King of the Hill' comparison. Whether you love Bush or hate his guts, this is STILL the greatest place to live in the world (no offense to our neighbors to the north), IMO. And just because one half-wit slipped through the cracks and got elected president, DOESN'T mean I'm ready to abandon all the freedoms I hold dear & move out just like that.<br><br>You wanna bash Bush? Go ahead, go nuts. Obviously no one's gonna be able to stop you. But the minute you start throwing all of us into the same category of 'dumb redneck Americans', I have to speak my peace. I could just as easily label you 'Eurotrash' by your attitude thus far.<br><br>You don't want anything to do with the U.S. anymore? <br><br>I'm happy to say I'm not going to lose any sleep over that...<br><br>

They were most helpfull to prove my point in this forum to the non-americans about how a TYPICAL american thinks. (ever watch king of the hill?)<br><br>Sheesh ... and they say Americans are arrogant ;-)<br><br>And FYI, I don't believe there are any "Mat"s who posted in this thread. There are, however, several "Matt"s. Ordinarily, I wouldn't nit-pick this, but if you're going to call out people by name, if you can't get their nationality straight, the least you can do is get all the spelling correct ;-)<br><br>***matt<br><br>Turn up the signal, wipe out the noise ...<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by six_of_one on 11/29/03 01:13 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

Your self confidence commends you ;-)<br><br>As for me, I rarely ever claim I'm "right" - just expressing opinions like everybody else, including you ...<br><br>Have a wonderful and peaceful evening, Cherry =)<br><br>***matt<br><br>Turn up the signal, wipe out the noise ...
"Whether you love Bush or hate his guts, this is STILL the greatest place to live in the world (no offense to our neighbors to the north)"<br><br>None taken. I find it sad that some people can't be proud of their country just because they don't live in a utopia. I also find it sad that some people lash out at others instead of trying to solve the real problem by looking inward to themselves.<br><br>
