humans secured a limited hunting/gathering territory like any other creature, which may have involved homicide on a small scale, then developed agriculture which facilitated leisure and consumer classes, then empires with more sophisticated societies and technology, which sought to have holdings over continents, the earth, and the cosmos, with concomitant homicide and coercion of a proportionally larger magnitude.
yes, like another thread states, men also need to keep their dick in their pants. expecting women to take birth control pills, the female equivalent of chemical castration and a carcinogen, so that men don't have to wear a condom is selfish.
no homicide, beginning with no abortion and no war.
Sowing the seeds, an end to need, and the politics of greed with love
Then I, John, saw a new heaven and a new earth.
The former heaven and the former earth had passed away,
and the sea was no more.
I also saw the holy city, a new Jerusalem,
coming down out of heaven from God,
prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
Behold, Gods dwelling is with the human race.
He will dwell with them and they will be his people
and God himself will always be with them as their God.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes,
and there shall be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain,
for the old order has passed away.
The One who sat on the throne said,
Behold, I make all things new.

i'm glad unions are there to provide basic representation for employees, given that management and corporations have ample counsel. i don't think its right that a prospective employee should be forced to join a union, but then they shouldn't have the right to be represented by them. the bigger issue is that people at the top and bottom get too greedy and abuse their privileges to exploit the other side.
An 11-year-old boy was arraigned in juvenile court Friday afternoon, accused of threatening a woman on a TriMet MAX train with a loaded gun after bumping into her baby's stroller.
The boy faces allegations of unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, menacing, interfering with public transportation, possession of a loaded firearm and second-degree disorderly conduct.
thanks for the link. if they were black, the police would have found a place to hold them or charged the parents with something, but portland is mostly poor whites. note that the older kid escaped home just after the police put him there.
agreed. it has to start from the top, and i don't just mean from the government. One excelling black kid in a school of low-achievers will make little difference or just wind up leaving. That which one associates with rubs off on one. Gangsta rap being promoted will be detrimental. Artists with a positive message like Will Smith and Denzel Washington will be amelioratory. The government forcing stores to sell to blacks is beneficial, but only if the blacks use that privilege.
why do people worship different god(s) and have different religions instead of just worshiping one God? similar to what cutsinger said, maybe a god is a reflection of a person or people. why do people keep the religion of their parents? tradition, perhaps. why? i thought this was a good explanation:
i think most minorities are happy to have whites lead the way and just want to help out. they admire whites, this is why some move to white countries or try to assimilate when whites have overwhelmed a formerly majority brown country. as i've said before, most aren't trying to get rid of whites, they just don't want to be mistreated.
