thanks to our under funded and ineffective education system, but thankfully all of us will be coming of age in this New age. Get ready, get set, go. Now we must educate ourselves and each other at the fastest rate in recorded history. There will be no more suppression of information, truth, and technology. Free energy is near, freedom is near. Open your mind to this, and embrace it. For if one does not they will stand out alone when all around are willing helping and forgiving minds. Enjoy and embrace humanity for unity and community of an unprecedented scale.

Eventually, like the hippies, and the protesters in the 1900's, the youth will realize that the best way to make change is to take charge of the situation. Than they will start to work hard for promotions and put themselves in a position of power so they can make the world a better place.

And ultimately give into the luxuries of capitalism and forget all about what it was they were protesting about.

Just like in the 60's.

True. Hippies become yuppies. It's a basic metamorphosis process I learned in biology 101.

They were all getting rich selling themselves even then. And what was most unfortunate, is that a lot did not survive to benefit.

And the cycle goes forward. I am thinking of just joining the military. The best way to end the wars is to be in a position of power in the military. On the other hand, they probably have a lot information we don't have access too and are very much justified in their actions. But we will never know standing on the streets.

Best way to end wars is to win wars.

If you're going to join the military, with the intent of introducing change, then set your eyes on four years of college first. Because the military is totalitarian and only the officer has the ability to influence.

I have a University diploma already, that's my plan.

I'd go for flight school, you'll never regret it.

Many of them do, yes. I agree.

The rest just sound like they hang out on the wrong side of nuts most of the time. Everyone is so willing to talk protest, but no one wants to talk solution. Ever. The whole thing is beginning to bore me.

And to think, I was almost an official supporter.
