    Let me ask a general question.

    When was the last time you ever heard a political leader, a prime minister or a president, ever talk about hope? talk about a positive future? whats possible if we commit too it?

    Im sick of two things. Economics and the politics of fear.

    Why does every political leader seem like nothing more than a dressed up accountant. Nobody has a vision anymore, nobody has goals. Its all about money and dirty bombs....

    What about sustainable economic prosperity, what about curing diseases that kill millions of us each year, what about abolishing child labor - worldwide, what about alternatives to oil and fossil fuels, what about protecting the animals we have left, teaching kids and adults to respect the natural world, what about colonizing outer space, moving beyond this planet. What about big ideas.

    Show me a politician with half a vision, a positive outlook, someone that can talk about big ideas, social issues, has a sense of humor, and seems like something more than a graduate from business school, someone I can stand listening to for 10 minutes and I might actually vote for them.
  2. I hope porn gets criminalized, and we adopt similar laws to Iran, for such degenerates.

    Are we preaching misogynism?


    war = fear = power = money

    Do you mean big ideas, or philanthropic ones?
    Humans are selfish beings. Give them a bit of power and they'll take it to head.
  9. I'm preaching the gospel of Christ.
