Can Eurasia with an European diaphragm be born, the West regain its health and the two learn to appreciate each other?

Civilisation stems from the human heart. It's also known as evolution. Human intelligence emerging from confusion - the inner self begins to shine. Mind is where the clouds flurry ....

The Afghanistan “bears” have been right on the money… the whole way… every disaster predicted…

Now they are saying “terrorist super state- al queada backin- open borders- we get hit again….”

Well, there's pessimism and optimism for you Matt. The one that will come true is the one that people choose. But I do think stupidity gets so painful, eventually we get around to choosing the good. Don't forget, there are more good people in this world than the very few who screw everything up for everyone else. These good people just need to stand up and be counted, too! Cheers ...
