Because you know, first hand, what goes on there.  You only know what you have been told.  Open your mind man.  Realize that all of the information we are bombarded with might not be all true.

I don't claim to be an expert on anything, certainly not on foreign governments.  But I am intelligent enough to not swallow everything that is presented to me.  Look to find the truth yourself and don't let others opinion make up your mind.

This film presented a lot of things that might seem way out in left field but from my own experiences made a lot of sense.

 

What do you think goes on in North Korea?

Let me guess, the next video you are going to post is Loose Change.

Do you feel intelligent with that post? If you want to post something, maybe an idea would be to post what is wrong with some one's post and make constructive.... then again if you are a fool and feel smart because your are in the "majority opinion group" with all the other sheep .... keeping saying Bahhh Bahhhh Bahhh and don't ever dare to question your shepherd (Master). The best thing for you is to be an obedient slave, don't worry your masters have your best interest at heart

I am continually amazed how completely short sighted and ignorant people are.  Most swallow everything they are told....just because.

For example, look at television commercials.  Most make you believe total lies or make you feel inferior in order to buy something that is not needed.  Clothes/fashion are among the worst.  Who really needs to buy new clothes every season/year?  Most of the stuff we throw away is in perfectly good condition, but companies make you believe that your perfectly good clothes are inferior and that you must buy new "up to date" clothes.

A good read is "Your Money or Your Life".  It explores the relationship between money and time and how we continually trade our limited life to acquire unnecessary goods.  How we have become slaves to materialism in order to pursue unnecessary ideals.  It will make you take a hard look at why you are trading the most precious thing (life) for completely worthless goods.

Look around you....how much of your stuff is REALLY necessary?  How much of the necessary good are overpriced garbage (yes, we need shoes but why do we need $150 shoes?  Especially when they were produced for a small fraction of the asking price).

It is really unfortunate that most won't have this kind of enlightenment. We will continue to waste our life away, pollute our only environment in order to be artifically satisfied.

How can you take this piece of pseudo-wisdom seriously ?
Mr. Lame Deer says "When someone was so poor that he couldn't afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would in that case receive it as a gift."
Exactly one sentence later, he is quoted "We didn't know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by his wealth,"
So, they didn't know any kind of monetary system(allegedly), yet members of the tribe were too poor to afford the basics of which the community considered valuable. Sounds pretty sketchy to me.

You think you're this enlightened soul that has such a deep understanding of the world.  It's a joke.  

You think everyone sits around and worships our government and believes everything they tell us.  It's complete B.S.  Just one example:  Iraq.  The government lied right to everyone's face. PLENTY of people (I was one of them) called them on it at the time. But what am I going to do about it?  Go and arrest the President? Politicians get voted out all the time....and replaced with a similar person.  

If you so enlightened, why aren't you doing anything about it?  Start a revolution. Run for office.  Nothing is going to change in our world because Pokinsmot recruited some groupies on covers.com.

And as for Chief Lame Deer, his statements are lame.  Bull they don't have laws.  They just are handed down through the tribe. Chief being the judge and jury.  They mete out punishment when required.....maybe it's not prison, but it's still punishment.  You think if someone bones the Chief's wife (or wives), they aren't going to be punished?

Is this really breaking news?  That we focus too much on material goods?  

I have a '68 Barracuda I bought a few years ago.  It wasn't cheap. I've taken it to many car shows.  I go to the drive in just about every Thursday.  I get to talk to other people and enjoy their cars. I get to spend quality time with my nephew.  So that's artificially satisfied?

I enjoy living in a nice house.  I love the new sectional my gal and I bought recently.  It's so much more conducive to having people over....which I enjoy!

I make a decent living.  I'm not rich.  But WTF is wrong with wanting to buy things that bring enjoyment to your life.  And not wanting to wonder if you are going to be able to pay your bills.  

And for what it's worth, I don't spend person on shoes because they bring me no enjoyment.  They are a necessary evil.

And I'm also hoping I can eventually buy some land up north, put up a simple home, and maybe even retire.  That costs MONEY.

I'd like nothing better to quit my job and devote my time to causes I feel strongly about.  You interested in paying my bills?  Didn't think so.

Does the West have propaganda? Sure we do. Is it anywhere near what you see in some other parts of the world? Not even remotely close.

When seen through the eyes of someone else, it's quite a revelation

 

It simply amazes me every day how much propaganda influences people and how they believe it to be fact.  Every day... it NEVER ceases to amaze me.

Joe Rogan:  "If you're a thinker and you look at the marijuana situation and you're not laughing... you're friggin dumb."

I couldn't have said it better myself.

Hutch-

You are totally missing the point.  I am not saying you can't enjoy yourself and do what you like to do.  I am saying that our society OVERCONSUMES without regard for the consequences of the overconsumption.  Look at houses and the relationship between square footage and family size.  Essentailly houses have become bigger while the # of people living in the houses has gotten smaller.  Where did the need for all of this extra space come from?  I am all for being comfortable but think of the energy and resources wasted on houses that are vastly oversized.  Combine all of the energy and resources wasted on these oversized homes, in addition to the additional pollution created.

The reality is that we are made to believe that we need so much more than we actually do and sadly most people spend their lives working to achieve these things....working instead of enjoying their lives.

I never said that you shouldn't buy things...but realize that every dollar you spend represents a small portion of your life.  You want to spend that dollar wisely...not on frivioulous items that are unnecessary.

No I am not interested in paying your bills...but think about something.  Think about how much of your life you are spending simply for the "privelige" of working.  Your time getting ready and commuting to work.  The money you spend on proper clothing for work.  The car you maintain and gasoline required to get to work.  The money you spend destressing from work (hobbies, going to the bar, etc.).  The money you spend on doctors treating conditions caused by working. 

Doesn't really seem worth it does it?   Seems we are working so that we can go to work.  How much money could you avoid spending if you didn't have to go to work? 

I know the notion is out there and difficult to imagine but fact is we are conditioned  to work to consume so that we have to work some more so we can consume some more.  Round and round we go

This is from a country that let 3.5 million people starve to death in the 90s - refusing help from the UN.

Hutch always trying to bust my balls...Must be my cologne, it's all good though. Will you vote for me if I ran for office? Who am I kidding, your vote doesn't mean garbage because the zionist bankers don't have my back....lol.

So basically you're telling me, even though things are wrong in the world, and it doesn't affect you, let it be and keep the next generation ignorant. "Mums the word" got it, thanks. I hope you're in the minority.

Don't be so angry in life Hutch, in the end the good will overcome evil. Keep hope alive and remember, your cat loves you.
