No suprise there then.
With due respect. I know optimism is important in life.
But to ignore blatant problems to keep your own hopes alive is just plain dumb.
'As nations prosper, concern for the environment will follow in due course.'
I know I've gone back to the beginning of this thread, but as I created this thread to get the point over that all is not well with our finacial systems, I feel I have a right to.
If there was no problem's within the finacial system then I would say fair enough to that comment. But as shown, we do. I was just curious to see if you still though you statement still stood with this distinct possibility of nations getting poorer.
I suppose really it's not fair to grill you over what I and probably most of the world, after yesterday, concider to be reality. You are no threat to the world really and I concider bursting your bubble to be an act of disrespect. I should'nt have brought you into it again. Sorry.
As for Sam, I do concider him to be a threat to the world. I look at the world and say "We might be creating a problem with our futures enviroment, and that we owe it to the future to do everything we can do to make sure this problem does'nt happen."
Sam looks at the world and says. "If I was to say that giant strawberries from space are coming to invade us would you believe me?"
To me it is apparnet that Sam, regardless to evidence, gives no thought to anything anyone say's that's contrary to what he needs to think to keep him self a happy chappie. It is this lack of fear that not only created what we are seeing in our financial system's, but might also create the collapse of our futures Eco system's.
Granted FarmerBob, I do have my hands full with working out how to convince Sam that he is not the be all and end all of this little world, but thats the same with most children.
FarmerBob. If you instist on pitting your optimisum in man against my pessimism of man, who am I to disagree? Atleast you are willing to try and make sense of it all.
