The root of all evil 0x6a656666 posted:8/15/2014 4:59:49 PM I think I understand now why I have kept to myself my entire life and hide away in my cave and just sit there and think quietly. There are two perspectives that you pretty much have in life--an outsider looking in--and an insider, looking out. For the insider it is YOUR JOB to have a specific perspective. For the outsider, that perspective looks like a mental disease. For instance, I was discussing with a friend the Ferguson police dressed up as military who tear gassed a Senator. My friend, who is military himself, looked at me and said, "So? She probably deserved it." I was absolutely disturbed by this but I tried the best I could to hide it. Once you go inside, your mind gets completely fucked, and you are capable of anything that's in the job requirement. I, therefore, will continue to stay on the fringe and stay in my cave, because everyone playing out their "roles" in this world have proven again and again that they are doing so with no conscience. Money truly is the root of all evil.gary107 posted:8/15/2014 7:51:52 PM the > love of < money is the root of all evil. you can actually do some good with enough money. Andrew Carnegie paid for the building of 1500 public libraries back around 1900 here in America. people do fight alot over money. do we now call Jeff Plato, with his tale of seeing life from inside a cave? Philosophy 101. With AS I just dislike our five finger folks and so I keep my distance.gary107 posted:8/15/2014 7:52:01 PM the > love of < money is the root of all evil. you can actually do some good with enough money.

One post.Jaxerback posted:8/15/2014 11:55:56 PM He get's carried away...he should be feckin carried away!When you say that people carry out their "roles"..ie "jobs"..??Jobs are just a means by which you receive financial compensation for doing shit you would not normally do.Some sad people seem to define this as who they are??Gobshites!! bobprin posted:8/16/2014 7:53:35 AM I must be a sad person. However, I do take great satisfaction that at the end of the day the planet is a wee bit cleaner. Retreating into a cave can be a healthy thing to get ones thoughts and attitude set to once more assail the world. Jax is right though, so many people sacrifice their time and energy doing a job they hate that makes someone else rich.Gatekeeperds posted:8/16/2014 11:20:52 PM It is not the money that makes the evil but the persons own morality in the choices and action he or she decides to follow upon. As I states before in the belief the core of human nature is one of darkness, greed, laziness and cruelty. Only is one's ability to improve or deny this nature that gives the possibility of hope.gary107 posted:8/18/2014 2:24:53 PM there is no such thing as "human nature" as such. what humans are changes from time to time and place to place. I think we live on a genetic penal colony called "Earth World" and we are here because we are "the fallen" from a greater and more advanced human six finger society that functions using a collective mind structure. we, the five digit ones, are placed here until the bad genetics we carry can be found of some use.bobprin posted:8/18/2014 4:05:43 PM I'm only here for the beer.
