Comments on: "“The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” ~Albert Einstein — A Pondering Mind" (9)

  1. Couldn’t agree more. Every little voice counts.

    • The world is dangerous because of the people who are here. THEY ARE the danger but they are able to continue being dangerous because we allow them to be.

      • Which is probably why the world ain’t fixable. ‘coz people ain’t fixable. 🙂 We have little power other than our votes. Let’s use it.

      • In the US votes aren’t always real. They’re bought, sold, and disappear, think Al Gore. People are also stopped from voting and manipulated. So there is that. That’s another reason some people stopped voting. The system is corrupt and can’t be trusted. The people behind the curtain run the country. The Family. it’s all done with smoke and mirrors. All the presidents, including Obama, are related, no matter how many times removed. The whole thing is a joke.

      • Yes, it’s a big illusion. A vote is actually a currency. It has monetary value… And if I recall, abstention is very high in the US. Which means a “so called majority” of voters is really a minority. Have you read Saramago? After his essay on blindness he wrote another book called… lemme see in English… “Seeing”. Worth the read, once you get used to Saramago’s special style…

  2. That’s true!
