After reading Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, I began to wonder, could world peace and freedom coexist? What are your thoughts on the matter?

    Yes,.. but it can't happen until people learn to leave others who don't believe what they do alone.

    Our world History is full of it. In every Utopian grouping where people lived in peace, someone from the outside shows up and destroys it because of difference, religion, political leanings, or conquest.

    Peace.

    Sad to say Freedom for all will not ever exist. Peace in this world will certainly never exist UNLESS we became one homogeneous world, which is realistically impossible, well unless the human race goes extinct.

    Freedom is something you have to fight for on a daily basis. Why you ask? Because there will always be governments that will want to curtail your freedom. It is the job of every citizen to watch the government like a mamma bear watches over her cubs. It is the job of every government to do everything they can to take away the citizen's rights. Whenever the citizen becomes complacent, government will become more intrusive, and vice a versa.

    Brave New World was written by and for LOSERS, the Gammas and Epsilons of the world, which we no longer need as hey, we can replace you with machines that do not think, or desire anything.

    It's sad that humanity has allowed itself to be controlled by a bunch of has-been losers looking for a shot at something better.

    The brave new world didn't have peace, they had one better - Harmony, the real thing, a society that just works...unlike ours.

    And the cost? Humanity's heart and soul? The value of those things are on par with soiled toilet tissue...unless you are a LOSER, who gives a frack about them.

    Can you define 'something better' for pro-Americans with Americanism values who are under attack?

    I know for myself that I live my life as freely and peacefully as I can and I seem to be doing all right so I know it's possible, but on a global scale I just don’t know... I don’t believe life is as simple as that..

    World Peace and Freedom could theoretically co-exist, but the pre-requisite conditions are not likely to happen without Christ's return.

    If Atheism rules, there is no basis for human rights, reliable moral truth, significance of man, ultimate accountability etc. Tyranny will always result as man pursues his appetites without concern for moral truth, ultimate accountability or recognizing any ultimate signifigance of human life.

    If Islam were to conquer the world, there could be outward 'peace' (absence of war) but under tyranny without freedom or inner peace. Muhammed's Islam does not teach freedom, but forceful submission and tyrannical domination of infidels to Islam. Muhammed's teachings are the source of Islam's violence. Muslims behave violently because of Muhammed's teachings - not depite Muhammed's teachings

    If the world accepted the teachings of Christ could peace and freedom be actualized. Of course, some men would still do man's evil 'in the name of' Christ - despite the clear teachings of Christ - but an informed, literate Christian population would not widely follow.

    Of course people will point to the Inquisitions, Crusades and Witchburnings because these anomolies are all they are taught of Christian history. These anomolies happened despite the clear teac...

    The Bible indicates the world will not know peace until Christ returns. This certainly seems consistent with historic reality.

    When Jesus returns to earth there will be peace and the Bible says He will rule with a rod of iorn. There is no perfect freedom and what little we have is being taken away by left wing polititions, judges etc

    Yes, it will happen one day, When God's Kingdom destroys every last vestige of man's corrupt governments. Then and only then, when Gods Kingdom is established, will man enjoy both peace & freedom.



    That is the whole reason Jesus instructed his followers to pray, "Thy Kingdom come..Thy will be done..On earth as it is in heaven." Dan 2:44 proves that this Kingdoms purpose is to destroy all of mans imperfect forms of government.



    Anyone trusting in any human leader or political party to usher in peace is a fool.

    That is a great point. Socialists everywhere support the attack on freedom, liberty, profit, Capitalism and prosperity in the US.

    "I take it you're not familiar with freedom."

    Wow! You have too much time on your hands if you are going to be Photoshopping your images.

    Everyone is free to worship in America. I am not only in favor of freedom, I encourage free speech because it is easier to tell the good guys from the Commies and other anti-Americans.

    america favor freedom encourage free speech easier guys commies anti-americans

    Further, I do not have to use Photoshop to show how Mohammedans promote marrying children to grown men. Sharia Law is anti-American and is what the Imam promotes for America.

    "Look it up yourself."

    I don't verify your claims. That's your job if you want someone to believe you.

    I am able to back up my claims and that is what I am responsible for.

    You are only unable to verify the claim, because you're too ignorant to google it and find out. That's why I'm laughing.

    I have never gone on wild goose chases for someone who makes unsubstantiated claims and I am not about to begin today.

    "That's why I'm laughing."

    As I said, there is no way to verify your laughing and nothing humorous was said. That is why I suspect you are being untruthful.

    You want me to spoon feed you with information by providing you with verifiable links to defend the fact that I did not photoshop a picture to make it look like a Swastika shaped building exists? Ok.
    http://www.globalsecurity.org...

    There is the website, and here is the picture on the homepage of said website.

    I studied the image. It does not include the supposed building you offered as some ridiculous 'evidence' of something.

    You are not spoon feeding me with anything. I have two eyes and the link proves nothing.

    The Swastika Shaped building is right there near the bottom right of the peninsula.

    You seriously missed that obvious building on that AMERICAN Naval Base? It's right there. I can't move your eyes for you, they're gonna have to do this themselves.

    "The Swastika Shaped building is right there near the bottom right of the peninsula. "

    Even if that were true, and I am still unable to verify it, it proves nothing whatsoever except that a contractor or architect had some devious plan to do this intentionally.

    "You seriously missed that obvious building on that AMERICAN Naval Base? It's right there. I can't move your eyes for you, they're gonna have to do this themselves. "

    I was in the US Navy. There is nothing Nazi about my service to the US, nothing at all remotely similar and it was the US who defeated the National Socialists in WWII.

    Why you have a fixation on some building that proves nothing at all is beyond my comprehension.
  • Colbert Kinetic 2010/09/07 04:42:21

    Do you even know how to verify anything? Do you even know what verify means? Do you have to go to San Diego personally and see it for yourself?

    I am only debunking your BS hypothesis that I photoshopped that picture. I did exactly that, and yet you still won't accept the truth. I can tell you're a Republican.
