    I have a friend who is a Lt in the Air Force and he threw this up on facebook:

    "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -Franklin D. Roosevelt


    How fucked up is that? Sigh...idiots are everywhere it seems.

    Anyway, organized education is not education at all the more and more it seems like the only way one can learn truth is to study on your own...damn friggin sad and depressing if you ask me.

    Oh well....when I think of the USA and the current society that dwells within and calls themselves "Americans" I think of an innocent person (representing American principles) being drawn and quartered by those who are indoctrinated by those who have power and control...

    ...yeah...Education is dead. Teach yourself, it's the only way now. Question with boldness everything you hear from everyone and especially self proclaimed "experts". Chances are its bullshit. First hand sources are the only way to know history now.

    We don't seem to learn very much from history anyway.
    We keep screwing up in the same ways over and over.

    That isn't because we don't learn from history, it's because we dont know history and/or learn revisionist history.

    both sides have plans and schemes to muddle , confusticate, or discredit facts that are inconvenient to them.
    This also includes corporations, etc.

    the end result is the same, we keep making the same mistakes over and over.
    Seems like it would have to work sometime?

    Wacko humans.

    That's my whole fucking point, jacko. You can't trust ANYONE. that IS MY POINT. I wish the general populace would value perhaps studying the federalist papers as a family instead of watching the biggest loser or whatever people watch to kill brain cells these days.

    Mistakes over and over is because people forget. It is easy to forget...that is why the cycle repeats. I continue to have faith, but it is not blind faith...it is "Holy shit we need a miracle or we are fucked" kind of faith.

    if they would only study. Instead they are pretty much programmed parrots.
    We eagerly let oursleves be led into this.

    And still are.

    I am happy we agree on something, it's a shame it has to be on something negative instead of positive. Oh well.

    yes, that is the point...it's sad that people...especially military officers think someone as terrible as FDR said such a good quote and the reason why I decided to share his ignorance with everyone on USMB. Also, posted it to use as an example to describe the ridiculously high amount of incorrect information that people spread. Ignorance begets ignorance.
