A VIEW FROM THE STREET: What Does This 79-year-old Ex-Warrior Still ThinK? - "...I hate every political system on Earth. I have no time for any politician, ruler, faked bullshit Cause, or religion.

The ultimate goal of civilizations---its rulers, priests, and power elites---has always been to divide us, conquer, and rule over us and our human independence...in the end...only the State or its State religion will rule."
