    Every day I get more disheartened with the human race :-/
    People blame religion but really mankind would still go to war and kill.

    Of course they would. Religion is an excuse, the reason is power, there will always be power to be gained or lost so if there was no religion people would absolutely be killing each other. Probably worse than they do with religion.

    I am sure. Race, wealth and origin also play a role. I think evil and angry gets the attention and maybe skews the perspective some however I still see most people wanting to live in peace. The trouble arises because of who controls the wealth and the making of wars. That group is so very small in relation to the rest of us.

    Mankind will always kill, maim or attack one another over resources before religion. Either way, if you strip away or remove the enforcement of the laws and societal conventions we've imposed upon ourselves, you'll find there's little or no difference between mankind today and mankind in 2000 BC.

    Once you accept that human beings are just selfish, greedy and violent animals that happen to have opposing thumbs and have chosen to bind themselves to written laws, your life will become soooo much simpler.

    Religion is USED in this way becuase organized religion creates a leash to put arround the believers neck so they can be drug arround.

    Power will ALWAYS grab at this leash when they need evil done.


    Stop organzing

    stop placeing the leash on your own neck

    True. Dwelling on the bad in this world is no good for the individual. I find too much news can be a bad thing and will skew the way we see the world.

    If it bleeds, it leads.

    Seek the good that does exist and don't let the media own your outlook.

    Religion?
    Really?
    Shouldn't you indict science?

    "Just who has imposed on the suffering
    human race poison gas, barbed wire, high explosives, experiments in eugenics, the formula for Zyklon B, heavy artillery,
    pseudo-scientific justifications for mass murder, cluster bombs,
    attack submarines, napalm, inter continental ballistic missiles,
    military space platforms, and nuclear weapons?"

    Most people do not want to live in peace. The vast majority are those who want to subjugate others. That's why we have war, and gangs, and criminals. Go into any inner city, go to Chicago, it's not the ones who control the wealth, but the ones who want power over others.

    We need more true individualism and less groups.
    Be your own leader.
