Ruppert's interesting and worth listening to. Listening to him now is like hearing my thoughts from a decade ago. I'm not sure I agree with his gloom and doom perspective. Humanity does have to change. Infinite growth economics is unsustainable, and quite frankly, undesirable.

I'm not sure what to think of his vision of the global Kshatriya cast. I've self described as just that many times in my life. But if such a class or cast exists, what others exist and what is their role or station?

I also get the sense that Ruppert accepts that the current economic crisis is simply the manifestation of the reckless abandon of unbridled individual greed. I perceive something more calculated, planned and (forgive me) conspiratorial.

The thing is that you cannot lump groups of people together. All policemen are individuals just as all military men are individuals. They do act as units at times, but I think that we are all aware that within army men, as the individual one guilting the cops in the vid, another one is just as likely to be brutal. Same with members of OWS, it is made up of individuals, although the civil disobedience acts are done as a group. The police may view groups as you view them, a unit, so that if one or two people behave badly, it is seen as the group behaving badly. Same as many view cops.

But step back and you see individuals.

thats true; i have met a bunch of asshole cops but one of them was pretty cool. so, lets just say 99% of cops are assholes and let that it rest at that

Do you feel that way about men and women in the military? They've killed and maimed a lot more humans thans cops.

Also, does that 99 percent exclude them from this 99 percent?

i dont have much experience meeting military people... actually i avoid them for that exact reason.

and no, there is no such a thing as a rich cop. in the cop population, you got a lot of assholes, a lot of short people, a lot of people with small penises, but you got no rich ones : )

They are just following orders they train to follow an order that is given to them.
