The current system

With things brewing in our government like the Trans Pacific Partnership
it is clear that the people that run the entire world are going medieval on our asses.

The most extreme example is global climate change. We are hurtling along mindlessly, as the keepers of the planet, while apocalyptic doom for the worlds future is merely a matter of when, and it's already been happening all around us. (The planet is the warmest it's been in 4000 years or something?) I'm against mass extinctions and rendering entire southern states as unlivable by humans!

The future of humanity is looking more and more and more like the movie Mad Max.

Our institutions are failing us utterly every where you turn. It is possible to be assured a future of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but not with this collection of PTB sociopaths driving the planets future into the ground.

All this human misery does not have to be. We can live fair and peaceful and prosperous lives. All our problems have solutions. Modern technology is exploding all around us at an astounding pace (3D printing, as one example) If we could apply the same human ingenuity to solve the planets problems COLLECTIVELY, the future could be fair, just, prosperous and happy.

She gave her life standing behind her beliefs and principals.

I fear we are nearing the point where some more will have to die to make a stand against the powers that have purchased our democracy.

A Century ago give or take a few decades, many people died taking a stand for unions and collective bargaining. Looks like we will have to fight this battle all over again to get democracy and a modest amount of fairness and justice back into our American Lives.

So many people I know openly admit the PTB want to turn us all into powerless corporate serfs without human rights.

The are getting medieval on our asses, so to speak.

Thank you and your family again for your sacrifice, Rachel.

About 90-percent

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland. OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE INFESTED WITH GREEDY AND CORRUPT SOCIOPATHS
