Part of the problem with this world is created by people harbouring greed; and part is created by people at the opposite extreme who have no sense of value whatsoever. I mean, how do you get someone who doesn't really care what happens to them or to their possessions, care about what they do to violate anyone else- we cant very well get them to see empathy with the point 'how would YOU like it?' Perhaps if most people had a starting chance to gain things in their life worth protecting or working for, they might think twice about throwing it away or taking anyone elses. Everyone needs something to value- otherwise whats the point!
I pride myself on having integrity and values- even if a person has nothing else, they can still have morality!
I don't care for things or actions that are completely unneccesary. Say, does a rat have to die in pain so we can have eyeliner? Or do we have to cram billions of chickens into cages so that the stores can chuck out half of them when nobody buys them? Reel in thousands of fish when we only sell hundreds? And do we really need movies in 3D or HD? Not really.
Do unto others, etc... And if you dont mind yourself getting tortured to death then you're not sane enough to count in this rule!
We should all have our liberties- but dont tread on me to get yours, and I wont tread on you.
What Gives Me Hope
That there is at least some integrity out there- even if it's hard to find!
That people still have enough fight left to get angry with the world.
And that the Jeremy Kyle show has more veiwers than guests...
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Chuck the royal family out of their palace and give the space to homeless- it's not as if they worked to get that rich!
Have all child abusers neutered. And give their organs to the more deserving of life :) (I may be joking- maybe not...)
