Progress has reached it's terminal velocity. And further advancement in technology sends us backwards. We need to stop wondering what we're capable of, and stop pouring out effort and recources to get there, and focus on what we can do with what we have, Start cleaning up the disasters all this excess breeds. Why is my country spending in excess of $500million to host games for rich people, while half the world suffers and dies in poverty? Why did the U.S. feel that the need to invade Iraq was so dire, while ignoring GENOCIDE in other countries. We need a complete overhaul of the mentality that drives us as societies, because letting MONGREL MORONS like George Bush into power has raped this world for generations to come. All for profit. And you know what? He probably doesn't think twice about it, ever. Say no to politicians, elect a person.
