    How time runs thin my friends, some people dependant on wealth and power are in for a shocker and a long... long withdrawal. Many are panicking, evidenced by their lack of usual "shocking" actions, some think a fall-out shelter is going to protect them against a solar maxima (hint : don't be anywhere anything metallic)...

    Here's for your cynism FD... so delightfully rendered as a reinbursement to your vaillant vehemance.

    Oh yes... here's your precious "meat" :

  3. why you no credit da rip? Genesis Supper's Ready Lyrics.

    :cynicism: ?:talktothehand: another mis-use of your thesaurus
    There is >no purpose< inherent in life, other than those randomly fleetingly ascribed by those guessing/musing ...
    Plato covered THAT quite well in the Allegory of the Cave. And your place >here< is the same as in there
    chained by your ego to watch the shadows >only< ... and yakkety yakkety yak, of course.

    Even IF(doubtful at best) you had "meant" cynic 2 ?:talktothehand:
    I don't believe that for a human, that it IS to possible >to be< wholly motivated by self and/or interest; much less a combination of BOTH ... :lol:
    (Though Ayn Rand >came close< in The Virtue of Selfishness)
    ONE flaw >ruins< the perfection OF a "perfect plan"(should be no flaws in it)
    the usual Flaw being stated above: There is >no purpose< inherent in life.
    Compounding that flaw with: knowledge of self AND knowledge of "in best interest" ... :lol:

    Well, you remain quite blissfull.
    *shrugs*

    NOTHING about your "notice of intent" is remotely beyond being predictable.
    The government, is sueing the banks, for questionable practices in the past
    AFTER bailing them out, with money they didn't have, because the banks were too big to fail :lol:
    The banks got too big Under the rules and regulations that the government put in place
    And "supposedly" examined and approved in great detail ...
    ?:talktothehand: Has ANYONE gone to jail?
    Ah yes! Bernnie Madoff! any monies recovered and appropriately "returned"?
    Some, but, they know they will never FULLY untangle that gordian's knot
    merely share out a few pieces ... heh! and keep some for themselves ...
    motivated by WHAT? some version of holy/wholly/greater good? ... for the public weal?

    :talktothehand:Well, you remain quite blissfull.
    *shrugs*

    Yay something interesting to decypher I hope ! Classics rarely require credits and that is why we enjoy when someone else remembers and can point it out !

    *sits down and rolls a giant*

    I'm glad you bring up Plato because at the heart of the matter lies therein :

    Is it so far fetched, that after such spiralling circles of history, that finally an enlightened consciousness causes enough fear and dissent amongst the power hungry to confound their purpose thus creating a very bright contrast for humankind to reflect to ?

    Finally a 3-d shadow so to speak ; oh here comes off my ego, because I am not such an enlightened consciousness, I have just seen its birth which is the only reason "attribuable to luck" that I know it to be as such.

    You go around the question without really adressing the possiblity that the consciousness might be contained into a simple thing like water, that its own inability to reproduce pushed it to create a purpose out of the blue ; imperfect and very selfish yes ; you put your finger on it. All the other details are bells and carnival to me...

    You have to realise that this is not some ordinary news, and that this is not ordinary times ; why is 99% of the people I mention this to are unaware of this law suit ?

    It was quietly passed in the news between a few pair of boobaloogas and energy drink commercials...

    If you really want to find its purpose and cause (which your track record seemingly indicates) then look towards relenteless, unmitigated fear.

    The contradiction :
    Is not a paradox !

    Noone can ever take the role which can justify the means ; look again !

    Noone is BIGGER than the banks ?
