Michel wrote:Skeptic? I don't know, Fmonroy. I would rather say, the opposite. I trust my fellow humans. A friend of mine has called me once a humanist. I am not sure what it means but my very negative reaction to this movie is because of its lack of humanisme. Correct me if I am wrong but the movie says this: We, the people, together against the others! The others being the church, the government, the banks and basically all the people we love to blame for everything; this includes our spouses, the weather man, the police, ... the list is long.
I think it is very humanist. And I understand that any change generates fear, and at this level, a lot of fear.Albert Einstein wrote:The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Right, but those in power are the ones that have the widest range of action; we should not judge them, but we need to take action. If you had been in Mexico you know about corruption, but, can we blame our authorities on that? Of course not, we allow and foment that.Michel wrote:I am a humanist and an evolutionist. I try the best I can to understand that there are no evil people out there and if some abuse power, it is indeed, those in power. One can hardly blame a homeless to be corrupt, right?
Michel wrote:Now, I was sexually verbally abused as a teen by the church and today, I risk to see all my parents' heritage to vanish because a certain bank in Belgium has gone bankrupt. We are talking about the equivalent in bank deposit to two houses; a lot of money!
So, I have all the reasons to blame the church and the banks and any authority, as this movie does. BUT IT WON'T HELP!
I have no proof that all that is true, but if you think without fear, you see that all makes sense. When I was seeing TV at 9/11 the first thing I thought when the towers collapsed: wow, strange, like controled demolitions. Didn't you?Michel wrote:What will is to keep our head cool and understand that we are all together in this and burning witches won't help. Stop blaming President Bush, the Muslims, the Large Hadron Collider for your problems; we can't reverse time and it is only when we put our efforts together that we will come to an end.
Indicentally, I am on Garry Davis World Government internet list. It is about time we understand that problems can't be solved within national borders. Our problems are global but as long as we vote with our wallet, we are going nowhere.
Publishing movies that show that 9/11 is the act of the US governement is sick and an insult to the intelligence of the viewers. It is the fact that it gets support by some that scares the shit out of me. The great danger we face today is that people who suffer from cognitive dissonance can feed their paranoia through the endless amount of information found on the internet. This really saddens me.
We should not blame the church, government, and the others for the problems, but ourselves by our lack of action... and, how will we act if we don't know? I think this film helps a lot on bringing those problems to our consciousness to make ourselves responsible of the way the world is, and, to take action based on that.

Likewise, if you come with a message of humanist view on a better world, you don't have to bombard the viewer with the most horrible video shots that exists. This is unethical.
I remember the film JFK, where real views of the assassination were mixed with filming made decades later. The fast succession of them and their repetition lead the uncritical viewer to really believe there was more than one gunman on the scene. This is manipulation.
To what purpose? When objectivity isn't respected, I loose interest. When it is done repetedly, I fear for the consequences. Those kids who get a gun and fire at everyone in a mall or school, do you think they also believed that the government was conspiring against them? I am pretty sure they do. Do you see the danger?
We are so damn lucky to live in democracies. We are the government and if they are wrong-doer, we can change it. We are lucky! Ask any North Korean how lucky we are!
If we are on a sinking ship, blaming the captain doesn't help; Start pumping, all of you!
Two - As mysterious as the question "To be or not to be?" Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
Eagle - Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagles' superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle persons as the flapping of wings would sustain their bird brothers. If Eagle becomes viscously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.
A good day to - ascend to a larger perspective.

The author of that video just did what Bin Laden asked him to: Increase th gap between the Western world and Islam!
