Wow. what an evil joke. Your strokes are in humane. Perhaps you're an example of the necessary evil in this society. The pure capitalistic freedom of the invisible hand that has been proven to be dysfunctional in an economy when encouraged in almost full swing because it causes collective dementia and senility. That's when the age of pure innocence ends. Way to ruin the fountain of youth.
I'm not that big of a capitalist. As I remember it, Soviet Communism wasn't killed by us capitalists, and China isn't too pure in its Communism anymore. That leaves a few looney farms like North Korea and Cuba.

What I see is closer to a decision between self-policing Democracy, or a rule by an aristocracy. If the Soviets were a Communist ideal, it would have succeeded or failed based on the ability to self-police. It seems that China is putting us and our democracy to the same test now, and we are spending ourselves into collapse, just as the we did to the Soviets.

Is it all part of a plan? I can't say, but I do know that people are far more interested in instant gratification so I see the aristocrats winning the chess game, but they may pay for it with eventual revolutions.

With that in mind, I'd like to think that the youth should have something to believe in, but expect hard times. They're a'coming!

Yeah! Any weenie can play "I've got a secret". Why shouldn't I just assume that you're defending attention starved children?
Let's say that I'm "sort of" in the loop. At a certain psychological level I imagine paranoia, but block it out emotionally. Why shouldn't I just assume that you're just looking in the mirror, and calling it empathy when it only an echo chamber of your own ego and experiences?
God is a nice word to give a face to your fear of your own trivial, helplessness in a very large universe.

Split personality (or even multiple personalities) is a pathology when the person isn't aware of it. During its initial stages it's unhealthy I must admit. But with increased awareness, it can become useful. I constantly ask myself "Did I do that?" lol

Nope, I don't belong with them.

Blah! Blah! Blah!

You don't see fit to defend your lifestyle. You're judging my posts as homophobic and worthy of being having me placed in a straightjacket. No sense of honor among peers. Never will be.

I remain anonymous for many reasons, but I am perfectly aware that the people I fear could trace things through network logs, if it was that important. Other than that, the occasional stalker does concern me but more than anything, I worry about H.R. people profiling me and stifling my political voice.

You may like the choice to use your name, but you may find yourself losing opportunities because of it. That's a friendly warning. H.R. people don't like political fanatics, and maybe other things.

...and of course, I've already stated that I consider the Gay agenda to be about pushing Affirmative Action for Gays. Everything has come full circle, but you think that it's all about rules and you deny your own sense of legal vigilantism, so there we are.

No meaning.

The fear that defines most inner feelings, intuition, etc.

Pleasure is something people don't put much planning into, so I don't think it plays much of a part, other than with people who have nothing left but kinky fantasies. If a person is that far gone, they're a bit unstable. Otherwise, Freudian slips may happen, but I think most people tend to bluff and pretend those are deliberate when they happen. It's all about fear.

Let us know when companies are required by law to hire gays under a quota system.

In the meantime, the only agenda I'll be supporting is the one where gays get equal rights. Not some agenda imagined by homophobes.

Well, that's another possibility.

If the U.S. wanted to undermine Communism in China, demonstrating the improved lifestyle that comes with industrialization could trigger unrest with the public. Keep in mind though, 20 years ago, that government was completely willing to crack down on dissenters, pitting battle tanks against unarmed students in Tiananmen Square. Also keep in mind, we are a nation one quarter of the population of China. Industrialization of a country THAT large is dangerous and the lost jobs in the western world are highly destabilizing.

Throw in other factors like the Kyoto Accords,currency manipulation, changes in import laws due to the inevitability of globalization, the eventual loss of global oil supplies, etc. and it's anyone's guess what will happen in the not-so-distant future, but I can't imagine it will happen peacefully! That's like a "Peace in our Time" joke.

Ooooohhh! You have a life, not a lifestyle! Wow! Stop the presses! And who said that I think you should be in a straitjacket? I'm betting that you aren't ready to take your battle out of your secret places. Doing so, well then I think you'd lose your grip!

Just look at what you've just posted. Completely in control, are you? It's all about rights! Rights to what?...a lifestyle. This is YOUR ego trip. Nobody has to respect you. Nobody has to keep from smiling to each other and winking and ...YOU ...CAN'T ...CONTROL ...THAT! But you WILL try. Use IT! You WILL use it! <wink!> ;)

That sounds like a young person speaking.

You don't sound like a social climber to begin with so I don't know how much you'll learn from us misfits! If you like to make waves, avoid the big companies and pick a small company that suits your lifestyle.

The US is inslaving China? How so?

From what I see Washington has run up the national debt so high we have to endlessly borrow from communist China and the Saudi monarchy just to keep up on the interest payments. Thanks to the Bush administration and then more of the same from his clone Obama...

Any day now they will show up with a u-haul and start carrying out the furniture.

As for enslaving their workers I would define that more as unemploying ours. This outsourcing of jobs to east Asia hurts us... not China.
