QUOTE:

The Only Hope For the World

By Doug Soderstrom, Ph.D.

The world has gotten itself into a real jam.
I mean a humdinger of a jam! As in John Paul
Sartre's existential drama, No Exit, which so
nicely portrays the inescapability of self-chosen
evil, the inevitability of a self-made Hell, there
seems to be no way out for the world; no way
for the inhabitants of planet Earth to escape
what appears to be the inevitability of a hell
of its own making... World War III!

Comment: This is a fantastic post (comment) that followed
the above article. It's perhaps one of the most intelligent
and well thought out comments I've had the pleasure of
reading. Truly a work of art. This comment (post) deserves
a much greater billing to equate with its worth, merit and
content. I wish all comments were this fine and insightful;
and assuredly, I read more of them.

Wow - I had no idea this was a New Age site.
I thought it was a political site. That is kind of
troubling to even cynical old me: none of you
seem to have a grasp of the actual situation. You're
all talking as if the common man caused, or had a
major hand in these recent mega-problems. They
didn't, and that is not a good, nor particularly valid,
way to look at it. About the only thing the vast
majority of the public did to cause this global
insanity was to inadvertantly be born into this
extremely corrupt period of late capitalist decadence,
where they have little choice but to make the best
of it.All of this talk of changing consciousness or of
Man's inherent violence are false suppositions on
y'all's part. There's not that much wrong with most
people's conciousness and most people are good people,
so one can't take New Ager's claims to the contrary
seriously - 'incorrect' conciousness is not the problem.
Nobody I know wants war and corruption and
fearmongering. So why do y'all believe they do?
There's little evidence for what you're saying.
Look around you in society. Are most people killing
each other and nerve-gassing each other? NO THEY
ARE NOT. THEY ARE NOT EVEN CONSIDERING
IT AND NEVER DO - THE VAST MAJORITY JUST
WANT TO GET BY AND HAVE A GOOD SITUATION
FOR THEMSELVES AND SOME NICE FRIENDS
AND NEIGHBORS TO HANG WITH, AND FOOD
ON THE TABLE.... (To see the remainder of the
