    Re: An American's Creed

    sigh..you're probably right.

    It is an impossibility for sheep to govern themselves and take responsibilty because sheep will always fall prey to the wolf in the name of progress.

    “All progress depends on the unreasonable man. The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself.” - George Bernard Shaw

    And that wolf is always the 'unreasonable' man.

    It behoves the reasonable man, who is more fortunate in the progress of life, to contribute to the well-being of the sheep. We cannot afford to stand by and watch society deteriorate to the extent that our very existence is threatened.

    LOL! :). This conversation is getting better and better...

    Yes. Exactly. What can the reasonable man do? Firstly, by default, the ‘reasonable man’ is the sheep. And sheep cannot protect other sheep. It is the ‘unreasonable man,’ who will do the protecting and because they are all ‘idiots’ as you put it, in one way or another, tribute and ‘leadership’ for protection will always be exacted from the sheep.

    I am afraid that at any given point in time since the beginning, society/civilization/ has no option but to deteriorate The greatest civilizations began with an idea and thus became empires. But then again, all empires will fall. And they will fall hard. Never to be seen again. Napoleon's French Empire.The Ottoman Empire. The Islamic Empire. The Hellenistic Empire of Alexander the Great. The Persian Empire. Babylon. Assyria. Egypt of the pharaohs.

    And in our near past, we saw the British empire dissolve amid great destruction and death that was WWII.

    If there is one constant, ALL empires fall, and by association, all governments and ideas will ultimately fail. So, that is why you needn't worry about your nemesis, the BN coalition. The seeds of their destruction have already been sowed at it’s inception. It is just a matter of time.

    However, I just pray that the entity that replaces it will not turn out to be worse than the first.

    Let’s get back to our original question. What can the reasonable man do?

    What did the reasonable man do in times of the great turmoil that occurred during the death throes of a mighty civilisation? There are 2 answers to this question.

    1)They died. They died fighting for the very idea whose time was over. Or they just…died. In their beds, in the fields, on the streets beneath the club of the mob or the sword of the barbarian who possessed no ideology to speak of except to take, to burn and to destroy.

    2)They ran. They ran with their families to far corners of the Earth and they lived.

    This is what any reasonable man would do.

    Amadan, maybe this is up your creek...

    This is a form of Dean Harry’s ultimate means of protection. Dean Harry teaches that ultimate protection lies in a 3 step life style; "Citizenship in one country, body in another and money in a third."
