well yes, it is the history, but every nation or culture at one point in our human history has been the slave or en-slaver. And while I agree it is important to understand history, to learn from its mistakes, dwelling or pointing blame at people of today, is of no use, and really counter productive. the history of mankind is all of ours, good and bad. We are in the 21st century, it is time to put aside our piety indifference's, and understand we are one people , with one planet , that we all call home. there is no turning back time. It is time to move forward, and use the best of all mankind's knowledge for the betterment of all humanity and our environments.

<quoted text>Apparently you misunderstood the whole conversation. Where do you get Detroit as being head of anything , anymore. What Detroit was, was one of the largest industrial complex citys in the world. A thriving middle class, a diversity of people and business.And it was sold out , by private interest, for more profit. Causing the unions, to lose their power, taking away living wages. And in the end the corporation still won, as they just moved their industry, to countries and states with no environmental regulation or workers rights. The crime you speak of was and is caused by your inequality of wealth, and racial segregation.
Please stop with your ant-imperialistic propaganda.
Unions destroyed the city out of greed for wages for low skilled assembly line workers that made the American Auto unaffordable.
Crime is created by the handout mentality and commercialism shoved in your face telling you all the crap you want but don't need.
These thugs wear 400 dollar sneakers and complain they are poor? Reallly? No consequences for the crime so young punks head back out and do it again and again.
There are 1000s of folks that have stories of growing up poor and succeeding by hard work. My father being one of 10 kids coming from a depression era family that rose up to be successful.
Stop with the excuses for poverty. Most folks on the government dole get well over $44,000 in food and benefits so why work?

The fact it has taken millions of yrs to get to the point we are at, based on the natural alchemy and evolutionary process of the natural life cycle on this planet. We are more than ants, we are critical thinkers, we are at the top of the food chain, and we have manipulated the natural life cycle of this planet. to suit our needs, The very fact the global population has grown to 7billion, is because of our science and technology in both agriculture and medicine. It takes one man and one tractor to do the work of what used to take 100s of people, because of our pesticides and fertilizers, we are able to grow enough food for 11 billion. Our medicine has given us a very high success in infant births. We are no different than the animals we lock in our zoos. if natural selection is what you want than go shit in the woods with the bears. We are the only species that destroys the environment around them for self interest.
If we change the natural alchemy of water, my friend, we change the alchemy of all life on this planet. I don't know about where you live, but a high percentage of people die from various cancers, that are related to the very same chemicals that we use in our daily lives.The only real cure for cancer is prevention.
It is your choice to live in your bubble of ignorance, that doesn't mean the rest of us have too.
Our intellect has propelled us to the head of the evolutionary chain! That is natural evolution so get used to it. We are superior to the rest of the creatures. They lose, right? After all, we evolved to win!!
Our self interest is our survival of the fittest. Again, earth doesn't give a crap because it will be here and the cockroach will dominate!

[QUOTE who="ratdownthemiddle ", "middleofthedownwronggull y"]more extreme weather.....
compared to when?[/QUOTE]

Watching the weather radar as the "pineapple express" stabilized over Washington state, "hotspots" of pouring rain appeared on mountain slopes, hour after hour. By the end of the first day,~35 inches of rain had accumulated on one of the one to 2 mile square "hotspots". Returning to the weather radar the next day, I was surprised that the "pineapple express" was still focused on that one "hotspot". The accumulated rain had increased to 60 inches! By day's end, 75 inches of rain had fallen on the square mile or more 'hotspot" On the third day, "pineapple express" was still focused like a gun. By the end of the 3rd day, 110 inches had rained on the "hotspot". The 4th day showed a few breaks in the clouds, altho the rain gun still hammered that mountain spot. When the "pineapple express" finally moved, that "hotspot" had been nailed by 133 inches of rain.

my friend, capitalism is redundant in a world of 7billion,with finite resources, only an ignorant fool would think otherwise. You can't even comprehend the recent social problems, let alone the history of it.. Do you even understand why the depression happened, the 2008 crash. How the manipulation and greed,in an unregulated monopolized speculative market works?The heirs to wal-mart have more wealth than the bottom 40% of the American population Less than 1% of the global population own and control over 50% of the wealth of the world and control and own over 80% of the resources..even in an unregulated system of Capitalism, money needs to flow, for it to work. How is this possible when so few hoard so much.

But racists, proud racists aren't people. They have left such existence to dwell in the graves of the Living Dead, who proudly murder their own souls, so they are free to murder innocents. Many racists are proud of their history of racism, murdering & torturing. They remember the good ol' days, years, & millenia of death & rejoice in blood. Let racists, who are dead people, move from the Realm of the Dead into Life.

Whether stricken cultures & peoples forgive perpetrators or not, perpetrators who still want to perpetrate murder, terror & torture are the ones to continue dwelling in graves.......& do it proudly, dredging the past into the future.

Chastising stricken cultures & peoples for remembering, is to revisit the past & begins the process of dredging the past into the future. Most certainly........it is counter productive.

i totally understand, what your saying. And I've had many debate with so called racists from many different cultures . And to me,,it comes down to lack of education,propagated by stereo typical lies and fear., usually for self interest means, such as dividing the populace, on race, religion of monetary inequality.To create great distraction To more easily control the people.Almost every war in the last century and beginning of this one was started with a false flag, to draw the people into war, war is a racket and always will be. Millions of common people killed for the interests of a few. In my life time I was taught to hate Russians, Cubans, Vietnamese,Iraqis,Iranians, North Koreans, Communist Chinese, I personally don't know why,so then I read on my own , and discovered that I have nothing personal against any human being from any part of the world. That sometimes the very same things we accuse these so called enemies of doing, our own governments do the exact thing, and sometimes worse, as they are doing it in the name of America. And this pyramid of inequality is centuries old. It is the solidarity of we the people, when we all have general consensus and common goals,that are in the interest of everyone, will things evolve, past the point we are at now . Racism will end when we stop fearing each other, and teaching it to our children.

Look at our government. They do everything void of common sense unless you think that is "normal".

Stop plucking your heart strings and using your "obvious" intellect and try a little common sense and especially your 5th grade science education.

I understand your ignorance to comprehend socialism, but maybe you could try and read, "Why Socialism ", by Albert Einstein. Or better yet, examine, the wealth equality chart of the USA, of the last 70yrs, To see the last time , your average middle class worker had a decent living wage. When everyone paid their fair share of taxes.

Funny thing is, I've traveled the world and it's you pin-hole liberals that see the world from your tiny mind perspectives. If you only knew what you have available here in America compared to the rest of the world. You lack the understanding of personal responsibility and freedoms that come from it. You want to give it all away for equality.
You assume your philosophies are correct and fault mankind for wanting to achieve great things. Man no longer lives in a cave because he sought greater things. It's his nature.
Funny how those that think like you are recorded in history as being the epitome of evil. You believe all men should be equal in all areas of life, socially, financially, religiously, politically and of course philosophically. I refer you to Hitler, Stalin, Chairman Mao, Lenin to name a few. Your kind even ignorantly hailed the terrorist Mandela who was imprisoned for terrorist activities and NOT for racism as you might hope.
It's also humorous how you espouse all these guys and yet ignore how they lived in great splendor and not according to their own teachings or philosophies. All in the name of equality. You are not much different than Hitler in that you constantly use the race card to create division. MLK absolutely would hate what liberals have done to minorities. reducing them to 2nd class citizens all the while proclaiming how you've "helped" them overcome their victimization. What a laugh. You make them your slaves to handouts. They ask for wishbones instead of backbones.

Thanks, Although I am an Atheist, therefore I understand that those secret socitys do exist, however it is a network of good ol'boys. conspiring to manipulate the system, and that all that black magic and devil stuff is just distraction to emulate fear into a dumbed down populace.Another good one for the history and manipulation of our banking cartels, is " The House of Rothschild" which shows the families manipulation of the Jewish people, so as to make them the fall guy, The Rothschilds claim that they are Jewish, when in fact they are Khazars. They are from a country called Khazaria, which occupied the land locked between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea which is now predominantly occupied by Georgia. The reason the Rothschilds claim to be Jewish is that the Khazars under the instruction of the King, converted to the Jewish faith in 740 A.D., but of course that did not include converting their Asiatic Mongolian genes to the genes of the Jewish people.You will find that approximately 90% of people in the world today who call themselves Jews are actually Khazars, or as they like to be known, Ashkenazi Jews. These people knowingly lie to the world with their claims that the land of Israel is theirs by birthright, when in actual fact their real homeland is over 800 miles away in Georgia.

1776: Adam Weishaupt officially completes his organisation of the Illuminati on May 1 of this year. The purpose of the Illuminati is to divide the goyim (all non-Jews) through political, economic, social, and religious means. The opposing sides were to be armed and incidents were to be provided in order for them to: fight amongst themselves; destroy national governments; destroy religious institutions; and eventually destroy each other.

Weishaupt soon infiltrates the Continental Order of Freemasons with this Illuminati doctrine and establishes lodges of the Grand Orient to be their secret headquarters. This was all under the orders and finance of Mayer Amschel Rothschild and the concept has spread and is followed within Masonic Lodges worldwide to the present day.

Weishaupt also recruits 2,000 paid followers including the most intelligent men in the field of arts and letters, education, science, finance,and industry. They were instructed to follow the following methods in order to control people.

1) Use monetary and sex bribery to obtain control of men already in high places, in the various levels of all governments and other fields of endeavour. Once influential persons had fallen for the lies, deceits, and temptations of the Illuminati they were to be held in bondage by application of political and other forms of blackmail, threats of financial ruin, public exposure, and fiscal harm, even death to themselves and loved members of their families. 2) The faculties of colleges and universities were to cultivate students possessing exceptional mental ability belonging to well-bred families with international leanings, and recommend them for special training in internationalism, or rather the notion that only a one- world government can put an end to recurring wars and strife. Such training was to be provided by granting scholarships to those selected by the Illuminati.

3) All influential people trapped into coming under the control of the Illuminati, plus the students who had been specially educated and trained, were to be used as agents and placed behind the scenes of all governments as experts and specialists. This was so they would advise the top executives to adopt policies which would in the long-run serve the secret plans of the Illuminati one-world conspiracy and bring about the destruction of the governments and religions they were elected or appointed to serve.

4) To obtain absolute-control of the press, at that time the only mass-communications media which distributed information to the public, so that all news and information could be slanted in order to make the masses believe that a one-world government is the only solution to our many and varied problems
