Forgivness is a gift to yourself and not to others. When you hold pain and hatred for others, you suffer the most. - Benjamin Gill

Bin Laden is a minor threat. He's not even a threat, he's a nuissance. How can people compare the 11 million dead of the holocaust or the millions who faced misery during the cold war to 9/11.
9/11 = 3000 dead.
You see in fact this illustrates my point perfectly, the evil of the XXth killed millions, the evil of today kills thousands.
That's a 99.9% decrease in the amount of death, and that's pretty damn good.

And to continue, the fundamentalists have no hope of taking over the world or even any part of the develloped world unlike Joe Stalin or Hitler.

Ok what was his goal? Does his goal matter?
The point is the evils of today in the develloped world (a few thousand deaths occasionally) are minute and negligeable compared to the evils of yesterday (millions of dead, despotic hegemony, purposeful genocide).

This is just like the matrix. How everything will soon be taken over by machines. But have you ever wondered why? Humans made machines and somehow, the machines outsmarted the humans. Which goes back to the main point, humans are their own major downfall. But my question is, why do humans do things that will create disasters? Why can't humans just stop and think. Think of the cause and effects of what is and will be created.

Humans make mistakes. I find it amazing how many "good" things have been forgotten or misappreciated by people.
Running water, computers, housing, medicine, art and litterature didn't make themselves you know.

Neither did the nuclear weapons and the poverty in many countries

Nuclear weapons do not cancel out all the above.

Men have been living in poverty ever since they existed, some (if not most) men today are above it.

Well pollution/trash hasn't caused any problems anywhere near as bad as other things humans have had to face.
And certainly the the things which caused pollution (the industrial revolution) caused good things in the long run. The standard of living of post-revolution countries are very high and the people of post-revolution countries tend to be very rich.

The civil war was bad. When I was a truck driver, I thought one night, I wished I was back in the old days. That night I dreamt I was back in the old days. That morning when I woke up, I was glad I was not in the old days. Yes our way of living has improved, but the earth suffers, someday the earth will have its revenge if we don't change our way.

Dumbteen - I like what you said about Bin Ladin, and things are better today. I don't understand why you protect corporate interests. Just because they are not as bad as other things does not mean that they are good. Much of what they do today our great grand children will curse us for allowing.

My son has asthma. When he went to the hospital. He went to the hospital with a hundred other kids. The hospital could never explain why, it never happened before.

Most people die from (in this order) Heart disease, cancer, stroke, asthma (and other respiratory ailments). While my generation may live into the hundreds, yours will not. Our life spans are dropping. They claim this is due to people unable to offered medical care. I say that's a bunch of crap. I know why people are getting sick and dying even if a media supported by commercial advertising does not tell me. Its pollution, I learned that when I was in school. We knew it was going to happen.

I thought the first post, the originator of this thread was excellent. I couldn't say it better.

I think that humans are just afraid of themselves. Can't think of anything more than defeating oneself.
