    This content might be out there, but it's by no means mainstream. This position of yours looks like an attempt to paint conservatives as neo-Nazis. Extreme racist bigotry... thanks but no thanks.

    It all depends on the ideology.

    That certainly is not my intention, and I don't necessarily believe that even those conservatives who do espouse the position I describe above are blatant racists. I simply mean that there is a contradiction there that some people may not recognize.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I don't know if this has been mentioned, but war is pretty much one way history has solved overpopulation and economic hardship. The problem now though is that we have nuclear weapons; if we go to war with a nuclear power then we can be rest assured both sides involved will be decimated.

    And despite the fact that war inevitably 'destroys life', the intention is that one side will come out of the war in a seemingly better position then before the war. If you think about it, it is usually the side that has lost so much that they believe even to win will be worse then surrendering; hence why a side would surrender and why someone like Hitler that wants everyone to fight to the last man is seen as 'insane'. If both sides see themselves being worse off (nuclear war) then what's the point anymore?

    But I guess if someone can make it look like being decimated is a good thing, then we'll have a nuclear war...I wonder who will be the first to convince people of such a thing?

    Why isn't overconsumption your focus Sessh?

    I implore you to research this issue more completely. You have come to an uneducated conclusion based on erroneous thoughts (and I say thoughts because you have presented no actual data for examination.)

    What you propose is no different than this:

    [YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6hyhxUWb1k&feature=related"]Auschwitz[/YOUTUBE]

    And you should watch this if you have forgotten or never really considered the value of a human life.

    Oprah? Seriously? You couldn't find a pathos-inducing Auschwitz video without Oprah in it?

    Sesshoumaru: Just concentrate on graduating from high school. That's a good first step towards genocide. (baby steps!)

    ^ what's important about this video are the displays and what Elie Weisel says ...

    "How many Nobel prize winners died at the age of one ... two? And whose shoes are here? One of them could have discovered the remedy for cancer, for AIDS"

    How does one decide exactly who gets to die in Sessh's genocide? And what loss to human evolution and understanding will that loss represent?

    They said the same thing 100 years ago when man first toyed with the notion of employing the machine gun in real combat.

    Before that, they said the same thing about giving gunpowder to the masses of commoners

    Before that, they said the same thing about the longbow felling the ruling class

    Before that, I cannot say...

    I'd call this thread trolling, but I'm not sure it's that well thought out.
