yes, this is the aspect they missed in history class on why ww 1 and ww 2 short answer exam question happened, eh?

Brexit then USA 2016, and the worst part is that the local election is the level of government that impacts people the most directly.

It is important if you can vote, to do so and at every single level that you can.

most people on the planet may not vote, or they have to vote on marked ballots

with the reality of a gun if they don’t, when there’s one name on it

versus the options of parties and number of names on ballots

Voting and the census count.

The Real Social Damage of Religion:

Snowflakes who are bothered others exist

yup, the global population has doubled in my half lifetime, with more generations existing at a time and the bulk of people in urban environments.

Rule of law, is that it is the law

and not religion that rules

these are the faces of why separation of church and state

also means ensuring that the political faces change

not the same faces term after term
decade after generational and social change

#StopMakingWhiteEmbarassing

#SeparateChurchandState

#PeopleNotProphets

#PeopleNotProfits

maybe think about the planet as the garden

and consider what your deity will think of what you did to that, eh

while you failed the lesson of the savior: no more humans sacrificed, means born ones; regardless of demographics.

7 billion plus people on one planet with imaginary borders fighting over who has the best imaginary friend controlling fertility.
