I am grateful to you.
It is really too bad that capitalism (a love story) is getting some bad press lately: I am lost and don't know what to do. Please help!

Observations:

1. These people should ask mommy to dress them for public display. All but one looked like a refugee from a poorly-run Salvation Army outlet.

2. They are a product of their own propaganda. It is obvious that they are the result of their local schools being the recipient of the dreaded "Dumbing Down" program they are so concerned about. In their case it is too late, way too late.

3. The producers of this trash should learn basic editing skills. Anyone who believes there is any continuity to this slapped together mess should look up the word continuity in the dictionary - if they own one and can actually find a word in it.

4. More of these should be created and made public. Those of us who are not a product of the National Dumbing Down Program enjoy a good laugh now and then.

Appreciate the post. I'm still chuckling...

Let's be honest here...

Yeah, it's a weird/stupid video.

That said, is there nothing about "Agenda 21" that worries anybody here? I realize that the UN is kind of a nut-less organization, when it comes to anything important. But there are some elements of this that concern me.


I'm all for providing information for the education of people and the improvement of the environment. But I am a little worried about this IF the UN is trying to enact some of it into international law.


Information is good. Coercion is not so good.

Are you referring to me? And is this the document you're referring to?
DSD :: Resources - Publications - Core Publications


I'm more inclined to read the document than to listen to somebody on some video tell me what it says.

I never believe what ANYBODY says without reading the information and forming my own opinions. I do not think that the concept of sustainability is bad however. As with any philosophy, it can be taken too far, but in my opinion, we have already gone too far in the other direction anyway.

In this case soft language masks more than you might think....sustainability sounds good....so they use it.

I have no issue with sustainability per say , except when its placed above people living life.....
