Some simple points explaining my views.

You live, and then you die.
What the f* did you expect?

None excluded :)

Love is your birthright. And so is making an ass out of yourself, it's life.
Be a warrior.

Stop caring about your death.

You don't want to 'stick out' :)
Who does?

You can't avoid it being a warrior. The only comfort I'm able to give you there is, that in a society of warriors, no one will notice. Translated, there will be room to breathe.

One thing though. This road is not the easiest to take. And the only reward you'll know is at your death. There are a lot of simpler roads. On the other tentacle, they will leave you at the 16 of may 2016 (European time) with nothing to look forward too, never mind what 'fortune' you believe yourself to have, or control. You ever looked at those that believed the same, historically? What I give you is the way of the warrior, and a good death.

Read this.

What is does is to make me smile, we had it since the 'Draken' in the seventies. But due to supreme asslicking and stupidity we've downgraded it to Natos standards. Which now is trying to make it their 'invention'.

The difference between being true to yourself, and as a result also to those relying on you, versus adapting to the 'market' in whatever form it may take, political, financial, etc etc.

Then again, considering the general awareness, maybe we deserve it? I don't know. sheep's won't ever take a step outside their comfort zone, and a better salary solves it all, N'est-ce pas?...

There are some finer points to being a warrior. One is that you are responsible, another that you take that responsibility, a third that you are responsible for yourself, not for the world at large.

You will get a good death no matter what happens if you follow those rules. It builds on a assumption of that we all know the difference between what is good and what is bad, at a very basic level. But that is what I think we do, we don't throw cats into a fireplace for fun, anymore, do we?

Well, most of us don't.

We evolve, but we also choose. Evolving becomes meaningless if you can't see.

To call yourself a 'warrior' without taking on the responsibility is not acceptable. To think that good and bad is just a question of preference, or premises, is not acceptable, it change with the times as its expressions evolve, but it exist, just as 'instincts'.

It's your birthright too.

The real point of it isn't you getting into some 'committee' , or 'thinktank'. It's about you. Doing the best you can to get a good death. One where you don't have to look at yourself and hate it. You don't have to love everyone, you don't have to kiss ass. Be yourself. This might not solve wars and global warming, but it will give you dignity.

And yes, f* money. We could have made this society a lot of ways, slower yes, then again, do you mind that? What's wrong with thinking it through? And making it better instead of worse. It's about you having a mind. Do you?

I don't know. You have have evolved? You might not like people,  it's of no importance t what I tell you. Whatever you see, you are responsible. It's your death. You gonna try or you gonna run? So far, we've run from it.

One point more.

I don't care, I can't be you.

And I still don't know if you get it?

It's okay if you don't.  I'm still looking forward to a good death. Doesn't mean that I fixed it all, some things I did, others I didn't. But at least I know that I tried to follow a warriors creed:)

Do you?

If you don't?
Welcome to our annihilation.

You can always define yourself as the final 'winner' though :) That will indeed become simpler as we go the way we've wandering.

If so, we are indeed a failed species And f* your cowardice.
