Einstein Was Right: He SHOULD Have Been A Watch Maker.
“The release of atom power has changed everything except our way of thinking…the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind. If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker.” – Albert Einstein
No shit, Sherlock. How could a man as smart as you think such technology would remain contained? Humans are stupid, Albert. We don’t learn from history, and while the people of every country allow weapons manufacturing to generate profits, eventually someone is going to make use of those bigger fireworks. The truth is that the U.S. military is the single largest consumer of energy in the world. We need to change that, especially as our energy runs out and people begin to starve.
International leaders are all acting to serve their own interests rather than the people of the world, which means nationalism, racism, religious bias and greed are leading to our downfall. The governments of the entire world are all guilty of the seven deadly sins.
So… unless the people of the world rise up for peace and remove such deadly weapons from the hands of governments, the human race will be soon nuking itself to death. Come on people… wake up!. It’s really not THAT hard to get along… we can take all the money being poured into weapons and feed everyone on planet earth. The greedy people just have to learn they still have human blood in their hearts. I’m willing to share and learn from one another… how about you?
We have serious work to do to fix this place, and as a starter, I strongly suggest that every municipality in America have the balls to say “No” to death and violence by kicking out companies that are manufacturing components for weapons. If you work for such a company, I promise there are better jobs waiting.
Sorry folks, there is too much violence and it must end at some point. One step towards sustaining life on earth means taking away the big, nuclear guns. We must put them down now or we’ll all be killed.
As a parent, you have the power to join with others and march on Washington.
As a teacher, you have the power to teach your students about other cultures and reduce racism.
As a US citizen, you have the power to declare your government null and void.
As stated in the Declaration of Independence:
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.
I do not believe the people in charge of our government are acting on behalf of the American people. You certainly have the right to remain silent and die. But one thing is for certain… no one besides yourself is going to make the world a safe place for you… your participation is now required for survival.
Here’s an idea: Why not get corporate sponsors for the biggest Anti-war rally in America’s history? Businesses that do good are REWARDED by good people. Pony up the dough to end the war, all you CEOs with hearts! The time is now.
You can do so much to help with the world problems other than saying “We can’t change anything”. That’s bullshit. Ghandi was a scrawny guy and he defeated Britain. Your participation could start by turning off your TV entertainment programming and help America stand down from any further aggression. We need everyone from all countries to do this… as humans! Unless we can work out arrangements to equally share energy, stabilize populations, grow food locally, and learn to live with less… we are certain to experience a nuclear destiny.
