and actually, I got ONLINE in 1989, 5 yrs before you entered the Timestream.
I’m 43. I was born in 1972 – I’ve seen a LOT of amazing changes. In fact, I _expect_ change and I can confidently say, I am a futurist because I’ve seen my childhood dreams come true, and my dreams are coming true every day that I see more and more of the society interacting online and discarding their old ways.
The internet is my home and I know it well smile emoticon
I suppose the difference is:
If I want to make an impact on gun control and terrorism,
a) Make myself an Authority
b) Find out who to contact
c) Contact them
d) Start making change.
Well, really what I’d do is create a place to GATHER the people I want to contact together and discuss it with them online and together, make change. Same idea. I’m more of a match-maker anyway.
Respect for fellow human life is the problem.
You don’t respect your fellow human?
Killing them is easy.
I’m not talking about pro-life abortion stuff by the way.
I’m talking about how you view other humans.
This is where humanistic values are important.
It has little to do with religion and more to do with secular humanist values.
