Imagine...

It's too bad religious fanatics can't have their very own planet in a distant galaxy in a Universe somewhere far, far away. Some place where radical Jews, born again Christian crusaders, and jihadist Muslim extremists could live together and practice their isms of peace and love for one another. Some place where they could blow the shit out of everything and slaughter the hell out of everybody, thus gaining access to eternal bliss in the paradise of their choice.

Perhaps, with those people gone, all that would be left on Earth would be folks more tolerant for others different from themselves. Maybe people wouldn't be so freakin' hell-bent on cramming their views down the throats of others with divergent ideas. Instead of destroying everything and everyone, the planet would be a better place with more real compassion. A place with far greater odds of surviving the self-distructive addictions of mankind.

Maybe without the psycho-fanatics, man wouldn't have any more self-distructive addictions? Maybe life here would become heavenly.

Of course, I'm just kidding. Banish the thought. That's far too simplistic. But unfortunately the fact remains, we do live amidst these extremist bastards who are just dying for heaven while stuck here in this hell created by them for us all. For that I say to them, thanks a hell of a lot!

Hold onto those good thoughts (a galaxy far,far away). I think it was Desmond Morris who once called mankind a species of insane ape (apologies to compis mentis simians) . D.K.

e4e: Yes, still here. I thought my internet connection was out last night. Then I realized it seemed to be a problem unique to blogger.com.

Knowing A.G. Gonzales dreams of shutting down all blogs, I thought that's what probably happened. I was so excited, pondering what I would do with all my new time freed up.

Today I learned it was another CLITCH instead.

ecellent post, dada, and there are parallels from the 17th and 18th centuries when there were still undiscovered lands on earth where the fanatics, the disaffected and the criminals could go seek their fortunes...perhaps, when the ice caps melt and antartica becomes available, we can send the current fanatics there...but more likely, vast deposits of oil will be found and the US will make it the next state...

maineiac...I'm sure you're right about Antarctica becoming just another continent to exploit. Damn!

I was thinking it would be a good place to put all the folks living in NOLA, Miami, Manhattan, LA, Corpus, Seattle, Venice and Bangladesh who be displaced by the rising waters. But of course, that's just Pollyannish thinking.

Corporate profits always trump human misery. Er, did I say that right? Maybe it's corporate profits always create human misery?
