    Let's start simple and focus on that.
    It's not that easy because you may find agreement with those who want to talk about the world they want us to live in. We can talk about that somewhat but it distracts from the basics of science. Philosophy has to start at binary. Good and evil, right and wrong. The gray area is where things get complicated so we have to get a little primal to determine if becoming a 0 or a 1 is nothing more than chance. The world we live in decides the cycle.

    Right now there are about 2 or 3 yins for every yang. Nothing can stop the flow of history. The acceptance of cannabis proves that. Try putting that genie back in the bottle.

    Good and evil, right and wrong depend on your values, no? IOW, your opinion and your perspective. Even true and false is up for debate these days, with so many people fudging data this way and that to support their conclusion instead of basing their conclusion on what the data indicates. So it boils down to what you believe, based on your observations and experiences. Some people can adjust to new ideas, reconsider what they believe. For others, not so much.

    Laws are written to deter people from doing what they do for fun. That is why prohibition failed and why states only made cannabis legal because they need the tax dollars. It was wrong for society to get high as long as the prison-industrial complex was making a profit. The majority of us got caught up in the scam so government had to look for another way to profit from society doing what we enjoy.

    That is the world we live in so the nature of the cycle is for humans to put government in check. Only 25% to 33% want an authoritarian government. We are flowing to a neo-enlightenment.

    Occupy is a milestone in the upcoming revolt simply because millennials were fed up with Obama's refusal to prosecute any of crooks on Wall Street -- who stole $13 trillion out of the economy. It showed the world that a young black president had no problem quashing a legit protest by American youth. Other legit protests such as BLM and Fight for $15, etc., quickly joined the movement.

    Anyone opposing these youth protests are part of the problem with no interest is a solution. Old white christian males are fighting a losing war in their attempt to stop the change that is needed. History tells us there will be a revolt. It could be something as small as a third party, or as big as an assault on our bloated and corrupt institutions.

    What change is needed, exactly?
    Replacing White people, with Third-World riff-raffs?
    What gives scumbags the right to replace us?

    The irony of a deplorable trying to label those fighting for liberty and democracy as scum.

    Why should we just give up heritages thousands of years in the making, especially considering many people took time to build the language, cuisine, and culture, as well as many fought, and died to protect such heritages.

    I don't get it?

    How sick is your side, that you want to destroy it all?

    When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    Separation is a good thing, it leads to diverse, and unique peoples, the opposite leads to in the beginning stages conflict, and turmoil, and eventually extinction of diverse, and unique peoples.

    The extinction of diverse and unique people is the fascist agenda.
