You really like Earth becoming your garbage heap? Do you think a growing bank account change that?

Take a look at the costs Japan payed, to clean up its country from the worst of its former greed and 'profit making'. Don't know any other country trying it afterwards, the costs are prohibitive, as well as it becomes taking resources from others. We can't even clean up a nuclear site, well, we can, but the costs for reinstalling a virgin environment are extreme. So, instead we refer to this 'infinite Earth' we live on and move slightly away from it. Should that impress me?

And no, I'm not referring to Fukushima when I speak of reinstalling what once was in Japan, and the costs involved in doing so. Fukushima is a recent problem, and one with no real solution so far.

Naturally, you won't ever see a politician support this thesis. But I will, and so will you when you wake. And then comes the question of what you want to teach your kids? Conformity and acceptance, or the way of the warrior? There is no muscles involved, except your true self, the one you will meet as you die.

Don't you think that one should be able to exist? Does it disturb you? Well, I guess you're on your way if so :)

You need to turn your head. You need to see what makes you want to live.

never force, learning, educating, and knowing that this struggle is one you always have. It's not a thing that ever will be finished. It's about growing, sometimes falling back, but never give up. And it's you.

Do you really think that the last thing you will meet is yourself lying to yourself? I don't expect it to be so, do you? Why not start before?

It's a hard thing to explain, it's very simple, and very hard to live, but it's the only thing I think we can change this world by. It's not about forcing others, not yourself either. It's about being brave, looking at yourself, and acknowledging that you're just as worth living as the next one. Not telling others how to live, but choosing who you want to be, if you were free.

Ever wondered about corruption? And wether it has grown, or gone down, due to our new use of technology, fast communications, etc? I will state that it has grown, and that people are protecting each other from scrutiny in new ways, as for example Googles new implementation of 'truth' where you only will get search results that those mentioned won't find 'offensive' to themselves, and it will be Google that define that as far as I get, and those able to lean on them naturally. Anyone remember when Google actually had a 'cache' that would tell you when people finding material uncomfortable, as in removing statements they once made. It would still keep the comments etc. Don't see it anymore.

Internet was meant to be free. And it was up to you to do your source checks, no different from checking up on your neighbors statements of life and people. You're giving it away those days.

Internet was not meant to be 'owned' by bureaucracies or business, of any kind. Doesn't matter what they tell you their aim are for owning it. And yes, it is offensive at times, but that can be checked without giving it away. It's a question of education, both of laws, as well as of ourselves. Everything comes down to that in the end. The laws made will only be as good as those creating them. And if you're corrupted already, unable to see yourself, then?

Instead we have a Internet getting less and less trustworthy, and where 'force' meets 'force' in ever growing proportions. Hackers versus commercial and political interests for example. With both of them lying to themselves, well, more or less :) . Force does not solve force.

It leads to wars, not to solutions, unless you deem democracy to be failed, and wish for a 'regulated system' in where each one of us know our place, a 'caste system' of sorts.

And yes, before those kind of systems becomes implemented we will get our wars, as well as after.

Want to hear a crazy idea?

Sat with a friend, drinking :)
(well, looking at the way I look at life, what the f* did you expect? :)

We talked about life and expectations and he said he wanted us to make something going out, he's not like me. He has values :)

What do you say?
I'm not the best guide of life, I have my way of looking at it, although it won't fit all palates. He has his.

I don't know?
A crazy idea?

Then again, what the f* did you expect from me?
