Where are we going to get the money to build these *expletive deleted*s? i like it, but it doesn't exactly strike one as a sound investment.
...man, it took me a long time to edit the word "************" out of the above statement. i felt like it was a good idea though, more ecumenical.
What does history tell us about the nature of humanity ?
It seems to me that we are basically tribal primates whose instinctive tendencies towards group preservation are amplified by our cognitive abilities and technological artefacts. Western intellectuals like us who consume twenty six times per capita of the earth's resources than the poorest cultures, might use our leisure time romancing about "the brotherhood of man". We set up idealistic institutions like the UN, whose principles immediately fall apart on the ground as self interest groups re-assert themselves in the lobbies.
Realpolitik..."speak softly and carry a big stick"...may be the only way to proceed unless or until such time as technology might hypothetically equalize population size with consumption.
I wish i had some of whatever it is that you've been smoking. The Latin you butchered is per se, not "persay".
If you actually had your Hall of Humanity, what you would discover is what Thomas Hobbes had to say about life in a state of nature: "And the life of man, solitary, poore, nasty, brutish, and short."
You're livin' in La-la Land, Bubba.
