I love documentaries. ♥ Especially ones on controversial subjects. Anything that makes you question what you thought you knew and makes you think. (I'm an INTP, I love to think!) And I know, I'm SO effing sick of reality television...and get this...it's been scientifically proven that reality television makes you stupider. I happen to like my brain cells, thank you very much, haha. (Television is evil anyhow, I haven't had television in over three years.)

I never was a real big fan of games like that, I grew up mostly a Nintendork. (But it's SO much more fun!) I think we could be designing better video games.

First of all, I know this is a VERY touchy subject, so I want you to know that I do not mean to offend.

I don't know, but I feel that the one to blame is...ourselves, seeing as we continue to breed the hate and encourage war. When we say stuff like, "Support the troops", we're condoning hate and violence and murder. And no, I don't support troops, nor do I support lying, murderous, corporatocratic government.

yeah I agree with that we only have ourselves to blame, that's kinda what i was talking about before.

i just don't see much of a use for war now that we are building technology that can provide for us. That said war has been fundamental in the progress of science. tools, medicine, transportation, education, a lot of ancient art were all inspired and built in times of war.

we almost could say we wouldn't be where are today without it. not that I'm particularly happy with a lot of what i hear is going around the world. bah but we're to busy watching our made up "reality" TV shows to care much of what's is really going on.

idk it's something to think about anyways

Well media is not really to be blamed anyways if someone who needed to be blamed is none other than ourselves just like erika said.Its us being ignorant and fools that we believe what we are told.If someone says that "that" guy is a bad guy and he needs punishment and we are totally idiots to judge them without even knowing them.This fact not only makes us complete morons but a scumbags too.Instead of judging someone right away why not try to know them maybe they are not as bad as you are told.

most definitely mubashir, if we could do that then maybe many wars could be stopped.

the sad part is that some people don't want it to stop, and out of those that do . . . . how many actually actively try to go out in their community and spread the word that we should be knowing each other instead of fighting for religion or land, etc etc.

Yeah, I know, nothing we can do about past wars now. But we can do something about wars now...and better yet, we could even do something about our governments now, too.

There are finally soldiers and veterans putting their foot down saying "no", that if a bunch of bankers want a war, that they can fight it for themselves. As well as people exposing what's really going on in the world, the one that everyone's too distracted to ever take notice of. (I ♥ heroes like Bradley Manning, Matthis Chiroux, Aaron Swartz, etc.)

People need to read more.
And not trash like Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey. [gags]

In past they fought because of lands,religion and stuff now they fight for only power display.In past wars when they used to fight with swords,at least they had a reason to fight and they achieved something but now no one is victorious because both sides are totally wasted.How many people lose their loved ones because of these pointless wars.We think that our soldiers are risking our lives to protect us but in fact those poor guys are sent by stupid governments for showing off their military power and dont even care whether they live or die.

True, for the most part, Mubashir.
But don't forget about those drones that Obama launched.
I mean, it's not war, but still absolutely horrifying.
How can so many people here be so narrow-minded and say that they're proud of this country?
I'm a brutally honest person, so I'm not gonna lie...I'm ashamed of this country (USA). :|

I didnt forget about drones and I really hate what they do.What they are doing is just a display of thier weapons labelled missiles on terrorists.I was reading an article on drones where they said that some drones were flying on american residence and there were comments like you can shoot missiles in afghanistan we dont care but why are you flying drones over us and we pay your taxes.Well thats the way they normally think I guess.

If they wanna kill terrorists, shouldn't they be aiming for the Federal Reserve and the White House? o.O

i don't particularly think we should these drones flying around anywhere, we've already made the world so small

and besides it ticks me off that we can use these things to see or kill anyone we could ever want when we can't even deliver things like food and medicine to everyone else

lol why would they aim for white house and federal reserve because they are the ones behind these attacks.lol To be honest they can do lots of good things but they say that we should maintain our reputation as "true" government.lol

Yeah exactly. :D and the TRUE government is a blood sucking leech that sucks everything from people until nothing remains with them.lol Anyways enough with stupid government.I have read an article that said that they have discovered a way to make small black holes and there is no draw back either.I bet they meant there IS a draw back.lol
