that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children
wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.'

In today's world, there are many situations that are less than ideal. We have a few insane people making it that way. See related article:
Conflicts on Earth.

Each of us can do something to improve life on this planet. The very least is to know your right! Visit my page on the
Universal Declaration
of Human Right passed by the UN in here.

If you are an American, read the Constitution. Though regardless of which country you live in, know your rights!

You need to know the agreement that made America or your nation great. You need to read The Constitution. If you have difficulty, there are
summaries. Here's a good one:
"The People's Guide to the United States Constitution” by Dave Kluge on

Also, you can obtain copies of The Constitution at no cost from The Heritage Foundation.   

If not an American, I am sure their are similar resources you can acquire. #KnowledgeIsPower!

Another small thing, you can do is, instead of growling at that other motorist, let it go. Smile at them!  Doing nothing positive is contributing
to the massive agreement “nothing can be done about it.”  THAT IS NOT TRUE. I believe something can always be done about it!  My plan,
which is doable is outlined in
New Civilization.

My Plan: New Civilization

I intend for earth and life on it get much better! You may think I'm crazy which says you disagree with me or are willing for the death of
mankind or at least slavery of 99% of us.

You can do something creative, positive or you can moan and be part of the problem.

Your exchange with yourself, your family, mankind and beyond depends on your actions or in actions.

Silent people are part of the problem.

Low toned whining people, shaking in fear, supporting suppressive governments, with their give away programs, are part of the problem.

See my plan:
New Civilization!

So join me and the thousands more that are working to reverse the decline of civilization at the hands of the
