When Political Correctness became a muzzle for the intelligent and respectful exange of opinions. No debate, no new concepts, no new concepts, no progress. Androids we be all!

Loc: Eh?
originally had one thought
now have what i think to be 2 key contributors, neither is a complete answer but really there can be no singular true clear answer to a question such as this; really liked what mike had to say about worth too.

1. when farts became something to be ashamed of
2. when the word liability & its meaning was invented

to expand on the first in a more serious light; when the idea was hatched that we as a human were not good enough and required improvement. consumerism especially since the dawn of television has been telling us how we should be, think, act, build, provide, buy, spend.

ciao now brown cow

Great to read your views & thoughts on this everyone

I think evolution is stuck in Homo Economicus or Religious Superiorus

Dubya hoists a few with Harper up here in Canada, eh
(also wanted to say nice to see you again & that your "voice" has been missed)

Yes please... and thank you.
You are always most welcome.

So much to what you say besides worth & classes.
We became less self reliant on one level.
Also lost sight of the seasonality of food items by being able to import from other countries at any time of the year.
ENTITLEMENT!! "What do you mean you don't carry my brand??"
Also turning everything into a commodity
I love all critters & it pains me seeing people with pets bred specifically as an accessory
Am gonna bite my tongue here
For now

I'm a Pepsi man mahself, but if you can't count on Coke.... nuff said

Classes & leaders... yep.
Seems to be part of our very being.

The first person who used power as a club rather than a tool was possibly the original BUTTDUST too?


Hell yeah fellow mandroid!
I am all for dialogue, heated though it can be.

1) Also like thou shalt deodorize your humanity. *(did Jesus fart or should that be another thread?)
2) THE LAW... ikes eesh & aye carumba eh?

thanks everyone & feel free to keep the dialogue going
its anybody's soapbox

When wealth and possessions became more important than happiness.

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.

When we, as people, began acting as how we think is expected in a changing society, instead of to follow conscience whether it is 'cool' or not.

Loc: in my own world in pittsburgh,...
we're falling from our posture of civility? oh, i hadn't noticed... i thought we were just receding.

don't worry mrs fletcher, it's only a dream, or a movie, or a commercial even.

[in the meantime, a more serious response is forthcoming pending the completion of the third trimester of its gestation period, which is scheduled to arrive about the same time that the ball of civilization strikes the ground we walk on...... be mindful of the broken glass ] happy newer year everyone! births and deaths and whoooyah!

in the meantime, where was i? .....
