You are such an idealist! :lol:

Excellent video that goes totally against the grain of conventional thinking concerning the issue. And you are correct in many ways.

Content is queen! 8-)

We have to be careful with what we demand from this life. Thoughts turn into words, words into action. "Change" is a duality word. Losing your job can be change. A penny, can be change...If I was to suggest anything, I would suggest acting to evolve! Those words are specific. Evolution, in my opinion, is a series of actions and/or choices made. Change can happen while you sit on you ass gaining weight and making nothing happen....from something to nothing is change. The word , evolution, suggest progress, adapting to the environment and stepping into your personal power.

Look how the words "hope" and "change" got people right back into the same game thinking that a mans skin color makes things better? When the facts remain, its gotten worse.

We need to take responsibility for the things we want from this life. That is a personal lesson I have had to learn the hard way time and time again.

Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back to work. Your life depends on it!

Believe it or now I've gotten much more positive response to this. I had one of the founders of Image comics contact me because he felt like I threw Image under the bus...coming from a millionaire from owning his own content I found it ironic..plus, I don't think he fully understands what throwing under the bus means...or what my point really is.

I made this video to substitute the thinking behind the mass hysteria of how people choose to look at whats going on in our communities.

The cycle of fear is a mofo. We tend to group together on common thought patterns and our conclusions are irrational. When we can band together to reposition ourselves for a specific future of our design.

And I don't mean all of us on a macro level. But all of us on a micro. Smaller communities with common goals and self sustaining dynamics. Allowing us to collaborate more freely and cross over into others micro communities with less resistance.

Alot if not all of the resistance we create. This much I've had to accept on a personal level.
