Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
If the stars fell: I gotta say... it is kind of funny how people realized that bernie sanders basically got shafted by the democratic party... like... legit cheated... yet people don't at all think that this election could have possibly been rigged.
To be clear i think trump is incompetent and malicious... but it seems to me that people aren't actually applying the same standards to these situations... its a bit hypocritical regardless of who's side you are on... personally i'm on no side in this particular race. Perhaps that's why its so obvious to me that people are making exceptions when it suits them even though they clearly see the exact same problem i do when it doesn't.
We should all care when our democracy is being subverted by the oligarchy regardless of the candidates, just sayin.

tularcitas: My feeling is that this was all orchestrated by Putin. He has something over trump (maybe financial or something he could blackmail him with). Putin set it up so trump would have a certain base that would go along with his biding and would keep trump in power. meanwhile Putin, with the help of trump could begin his world dominance quest. It's silly for anyone to think trump has the intelligence to make any of the moves he has. Putin is a brilliant man and trump is intellectually bereft. trump was of no more use to Putin and he orchestrated trumps losing the election. Putin will mold Biden into his next useful tool. get use to it, people, America is part of the Russia. I kind of like Putin, personally, he is brillaint and not bad to look at. I don't know if I could get into the Russian fashion sense or their food, though.
If the stars fell: The point is... the exact same group that cheated bernie out of an election... is the group that people claim would never rig an election...The bias is extremely obvious... and if you have even the slightest bit of integrity you should call out this shit regardless of where its coming from...
I would love to see what Hans suggested... and i kinda felt there were people in my generation doing exactly what he suggested.... I am one of them..... there is a reason things like religion and politics target children. You had to get people before they have true sentience and understanding, the ability to make educated choices.. I hope that happens but I'm not too confident it will, though i do think as a lot of these people get older they will begin to come to terms with the flaws in their reasoning as is often the case...
I hope the younger generations, so weary with the oppression of the top echelon and the thought police, but with too much access of information to be brain washed, eventually reform our country and the world...
probably not in my lifetime though.
Equality will never be achieved until people hold all groups to the same standard.
Suppression of thought is not the way forward.
Objectivity is the only path to truth.

Spurious_Profile: I don't even need to watch the videos to know what the conversation is here.
I feel weary whenever these topics come up now - mainly because human behaviour can be depressing and disappointing, and while we can view that in videos, we also get to see it in much of the "discussion" about said videos.
I'm not trying to be dismissive, but more and more I am realising how little power I have to change the bad behaviour or wrongheaded opinions in others. I try to focus on how I behave and treat others, and have stopped giving endless chances to those who spread division and hatred.
If the stars fell:
I am the crown on thorns, battered and bloody not meant for a king...
i am the hardened whip, lashing the back of the fool...
i am the sharp wooden stakes... pinning your savior to a graven image of death...
i am the razor spear, ridding the jackal of his breath...
i am the crucifix, remnants of a gloried past in which we killed your god...
i am but a man... pin me to a wall and laugh, for i have died for nothing...
If the stars fell: hmmmm...
