Certainly your right to disagree - and have a different opinion.

No, neither "optimistic" or "pessimistic" .... people are optimistic or pessimistic. Politics is a tool, a very useful tool. Especially if you have extreme amounts of wealth.

Well, I'm glad you're an "optimist". I am too. But, whether you ... or I .... or someone else ... has the "correct assessment", there's really nothing we can do about it. Whatever it is ,it's going to happen. With our blessing ... or without.

Again, your right, to disagree.
There's an "elephant" in the room. You can acknowledge that the "elephant" is there .... or you can go on about your business, and ignore that the "elephant" is there. Either way, doesn't matter. The "elephant" couldn't care less, whether he's "seen" or "not".

I don't think I ever mentioned "living in prison camps". And I hate terms like "dystopian" ... it's like throwing terms like socialism, fascism, communism around. Buzz words.

OK... this just pisses me off. If you're calling me "naive" I'm pissed. If you're calling my way of thinking "naive", I'm pissed. I have just as much a right to express myself .... as you .... or anyone else. It's a given, that we don't see "eye to eye" ....

Fact of the matter is ... the goons that run the world, are indeed, running the world. You can't take the power away from the Kings and Queens, dynasties built a thousand years ago. Wealth handed down, from generation to generation.

Again, more "buzz" words. I don't think I've ever read any "Huxley" ... and I've maybe read one "Orwell" book.

No, I can remain "optimistic", because I'm 53, and so far, everything that life has "thrown at me", I've been able to deal with. I probably have another 40 years in me, and I probably have enough "cash" in my wallet to "afford" the trip. At the end of the road ... no worries.
