Ditto. And it jumped the shark about 5 pages ago with a certain other post to be honest...

Am I the jumper? Or the shark? Or so vain that I think you mean me? :tongue:



[moderator hat off]
It's just the natural progression of evil. In a world led by sociopaths in charge of a psychopathic system put in place to protect a population that cant seem to grow older in mentally than a 5 year old, nothing good will come out of it and abuse is rampant.

Heh, mod hat off, tin foil hat on :)

Best post +1. (Sorry icuurd, he's right.)

Heh, I mainly just said that because it was really funny ;) It's not crazy to think many politicians are corrupt, but calling most of them sociopaths is really stretching it.

Heh, mod hat off, tin foil hat on :) But seriously, I think politicians aren't sociopathic (well some are), it's just that we expect them to all be brilliant economists, scientists (computer scientists in the case of SOPA), and philosophers. Most people are not a genius of in any of those categories. So we have lobbying which lets them understand problems but is seriously prone to corruption.

Well, to be honest, that's kinda the public's fault, we keep voting in idiots. Mr. Bush, Blair and Brown are a few good examples, I'm confident in Cameron and Obama though, they're willing to make tougher, unpopular decisions.

On another note, I blame the letter "B"... have you noticed that B seems to be the first letter to a lot of evil? Bush... Blair... Brown... Bankers... British National... Barbie... Babies... Bioware... I think that B is disappointed it got beaten in the alphabet by A and is plotting it's evil revenge, that's my conspiracy theory. Everybody is getting paid off by the letter "B". B with rule the Earth and rename it "Barth". Conspiracy I tell you! Conspiracy! Or... Bonspiracy... :ninja:

In Greece, it is the same exactly. We are ruled by an idiot goverment, which were voted by us (not me because I'm not an adult yet). They told us lies and lead us to economic crisis. And they don't admit that this is their fault. They keep fighting each other.

So you call me silly then you agree... cute :)



[tin foil hat on]
I'm sorry, but if you listen to the doctor's video (from the google search) on sociopaths in high places, it is a problem. there is a higher percentage of sociopaths in high levels of corporations and government than in the general public. it's a process of natural selection because the system favors people of that nature.

Understand that the definition of sociopath defines people that have no empathy; they emulate empathy (badly). I've dealt with a few in my life. The bad ones are obvious, you can definitely tell there is something off especially when they are about to loose their mask. For example George Bush the Second and France's Nicolas Sarcozy are obvious sociopaths.

Most are not obvious. The good ones are charming and popular and you would definitely want to hang around them for a good time (as stated by the experts, I agree). But the moment they smile you can see something there, the emulated smile (to most, an empathic response) has a tangent towards a grin (personal satisfaction) (my personal observation). You definitely don't want to be around them when their little castle falls though (personal experience).
[tin foil hat off]

As far as the general public being stupid 5 year olds, yeah I can agree with that, though. It's amazing how some people are pissed off about the .7 trillion dollar bank bail out and stimulus bills, when a recent audit showed that the federal reserve, which is completely unregulated by the government and yet somehow prints our currency, bailed out rich corporations with 16 trillion dollars, and only one politician running for presidency is even campaigning against the federal reserve. People are incredibly stupid, 5 year old mentality might be a bit gracious.


It's not the people's fault. we have to include ourselves in the mix, even if some of us are (or think are) more aware of what's going on. We all get distracted by the latest drama and forget the rest. We are repeaters of what we think we know, bashers of whoever disagrees, satisfied with what we have, "sociopathic" to the people in need (yep). This is our mess. I only hope we allow ourselves to fix it.


CISPA
There are rumors of another round of protest against this bill I hear. Will the big companies do the same thing they did for sopa!?? I don;t know, this is rather different as it falls under the "Fatherland" Security Act of 1947. People may be more scared of getting kidnapped by the Gestapo if they oppose this one. It's one thing to oppose the entertainment industry, quite another to step up in front of a tank.

Darn my mad moderating powers!!!

[icu so sorry]

Content modified from original, it's icuurd12b42's reply


Well like I said earlier, I only said you were silly cause it was one of those jokes that someone completely walks into, if you were offended I apologize.

I hope you got that I'm fine with it from putting the hat on one more time :)

As for the sociopath thing, when you said "In a world led by sociopaths" it sounds like you meant the majority. I just read the article (I think?) you seem to have referred to, which says it's about 9% sociopaths. THAT I can agree with. A far cry from 50+%

Sure did sound like I implied it though, perhaps I did, but more like "In a world led by morons" kind of way, not every leader is a moron, well at least not globally.. But you did go the extra mile as to check the video. Perhaps we feel better to demonize those guys.

As for the protests, last I heard SOPA was killed? Do you mean like another reincarnation of it like PIPA or something?


CISPA is the latest, yes. and rumor is a protest is coming.

Do you have any reasons to back that up? Also, Cameron is withdrawing troops from Afghanistan. I don't think you fully understand how withdrawing forces out of an area that is heavily dependent on them for stability works.

Everyone knows if it made it to Obama he'd pass the bill.... but I assume that only because of watching Glen Beck on Fox news.... which the stuff i've heard and seen may or may not be true... its still kind of creepy thinking that pretty much anyone us dum americans could vote into presidential office have the power to take over the internet in our country... creepy indeed. Just think of all the hidden information that could blind us to? and what if they brainwash us all to think that up is down and down is up? what if down really is up and up really is down??

That's Dan from Press for truth.ca. He is a Canadian reporter. You can check out his "Into The Fire" documentary about what happened at the Toronto G20 on Youtube.

CISPA is in the US, but due to the nature of the internet, we are all quite concerned. Plus Some companies supporting the bill are Canadian companies. Not to count the fact that our government has started to mirror the US in it's philosophy. Whatever happens in the US is always a great concern to it's neighbors and frienemies.
