I Had a Dream
This dream would have had room for each of us to work to our best ability with no limits on achievement and more importantly no obstacles for a few to make it easier on others. It had hope for new forms of energy that would free us from constant wars and financial slavery. A new frontier where men could live free by an honorable code. A new "land" where the laws were based on morality and "do unto others". A place where violating those laws cost you more than just waiting in a room getting three hots and a cot. A society where thieving, murdering and raping did not increase your status within the group.
In my dream if you had the skills and desire to be a pilot you were weighed by those criteria not kept at the back of the line because of your skin color or gender. In my dream those who were good in math and science used those skills, they didn't have to wait longer for government tuition because there were not enough "Fill in the Blank" wanting to be engineers. Of course in my dream anyone could afford their own college tuition anyway. In my dream if a fire threatened a neighborhood all able bodied people were welcome to help not kept at bay by paid para-military guards behind yellow police tape.
In my dream the government spent what they got and prospered because we were all moving forward. In my dream property rights were honored and there was no TSA, NSA or Homeland security calling me a domestic terrorist or reading my mail. In my dream NASA was still reaching for the stars not searching for potential Arab or African scientist. In my dream those scientist would have been searching for NASA.
In my dream there was no knock out game or 97 year old women being raped. In my dream the news reporters gave you the facts not rhetoric tailored to increase a social outcome. In my dream the government let people live the way they wanted to live and next to whomever they wanted to live next to.
I guess my dream just wasn't good enough.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
