From April 29, 2004

April 29, 2004.

This world is such a bizarre place. It has come such a long way from its humble beginnings, if there ever was a beginning. The world changes just as fast as time does. New technologies develop in seconds, new creations made and discovered. At any moment in time, something disastrous could occur any where in the world and within minutes, the rest of the world will learn of it. What an opposite compared to the beginning when people had no idea that there was such a thing as a “world.” What is even more bizarre is that that world was less selfish than the current one. Selfishness was a word that didn’t exist than, because the whole reason to live was to survive and pass on your genes. You couldn’t concern yourself with the events halfway around the world because you were powerless to do something about it. But these days, any human being with a cent can make a difference. But they choose to hold onto that money to make their life more luxurious. It is rather sickening to see people want a million dollars rather than a portion of a million and give a large amount to people who need it more.
This world is so bizarre. We’re fighting a war against terrorism, but we’re ignoring the cause of this terrorism. Do people not realize that terrorism is caused by oppression by a more powerful force? And what is power but having something that the other person/group lacks. It could be knowledge, money, a gun, a drug, etc. The war on terrorism should not be targeting the people who are trying to solve their situation, but towards the cause of it. The war should be looking at how American capitalists are targeting areas of weakness in the world to reap the awards. They are the imperialists in the 21st century. Humans have not learned a thing from the British, French, Spanish, Dutch, German imperialists, the communist Russians, the Ottoman Turks, the Mongols, the Romans, and so on. Humans need to realize and accept that having power is actually a bad thing. The communists have it right. Everyone should be put on an equal playing field and maybe some of the problems in the world can be solved. Maybe not some of the medical diseases, but the social problems that exist.
