Ignorance: The Unknown Weapon

By DKIdea, published on May 7, 2014

... subjects because the damage it will do to our world view is more than we can bare. I say we toughen up, ask the hard questions and accept the cold answers. If we don’t, how can we ever hope to make serious progress or shape a better world for our children?

Look at healthcare. The whole system is designed for making profit, so it shouldn’t be so hard to believe when we hear whispers of our health being given a deliberate back seat to profit margins. I mean, do you really think a pharmaceutical company is going to willingly lose money to make you healthy? People would go to jail for ... (more)

The Master as I put it, yet the drugs that go through his hands feed so many. Who is control? The Police that seem to have no control from the Master. The system, these drug barons have other drug dealers and users hiding them at every point through this drug empire that The Master has created.

...and it will bring up many questions in your mind. But, lets first talk about what the point of this assistance is for people.

Financial assistance is something that is meant to help people back on their feet, but many people assume it is for lazy people who really don't try.

Once in a while, we tried to also help people trapped inside institutions when they requested it, and one morning when I was there such a request was phoned in by somebody.
