  1. My opinion (actually my father's ;D ) Communism is bad IN ESSENCE because : 1. Ambition and the desire to improve oneself is essential to the human being. In communism, you are taken to the same level as everybody else. Aside apathy, this eventually leads the economy to collapse as there is no initiative or desire to work and be creative. 2. Communism always leads to dictatorship. In democracy, there wouldn't be communism because most people wouldn't agree on losing their property ;) I guess. Dictatorship is bad because dictators are more often than not undesireable for the position. 3. Comm
  2. Edric, with all due respect, liberals make economy while socialists spread the money, liberals give the opportunity of fortune to a part of the population (hopefully those with ambition) while socialism spreads poverty to all. Liberalism is the engine of economy while socialism is the concession. Communism was good for one thing: bringing countries like Russia out of the middle ages. For all other purposes it was a disaster. It takes away people's ambition, passion, sense of possesion and ultimately reason to live. It evens out poverty. Fortunately it is dying. Bye-bye communism and good luck
  3. But there is still a kind of satisfaction, isn't there? In any case, the essence of a moment only exists in that moment, you cannot carry it with you. And that is exactly what you said before. You might even feel that you are a different person if you think about it.. You might feel things in a completely different way. For that, you need to relax between events, let yourself drift - and the relaxed mind is capable of coping with the situation in a way focus never could. Of course, one of the requirements is to have sufficient time between them, a few months perhaps, to get an effect like that
  4. Yes, no matter what you achieve, the feeling of achievement only lasts for a few days, maybe. Then you feel as though you are back to square one! Although you may have managed to get something that raises the joy of your life. Obviously, you should never think of something as an achievement or you will grow it into a disappointment. Rather, think of things as the course of life or better still, not think of them. Just be there. Life is in the present. They all have advantages and disadvantages. They each have some measure of truth. What I think you are trying to get at is having a way of thin
  5. I'm not talking about the organisms which could have evolved from merging aminoacids or the way in which the solar system perfectly fits together to form life which couldn't have been here otherwise (so we could just be the forced scenario anyway you put it), I am taling about the way things fit together inside a human life if you know how to look. There are two possibilities I have considered: one is that there is an all-powerful God controlling everything, the other is that the collective mind of the human race or that of the individual (both, actually) influence events. Something like "The
  6. That's great! Just tell me how and when. MSN is Windows messenger or something? I think they are compatible, Yahoo M and Windows M. I'll try and add you in Yahoo.
  7. What is there to appreciate? They are satisfied and joyful, there's no problem with that. They, of course, accept that life as it is, too. No problem, eh? Ach, come on! I'm not some poor suffering someone and I'm not obsessing over something like that anyway. Although you could say that I have often had some level of psichological discontent, my argument here is general and not personal. According to the Bible are many arguments, most of them used in the past to justify anything. Please keep it out. In the first place, the New Testament has been chipped up by men out of the original collecti
  8. I see YOU have some form of being content. But what about the way of life of other people? IT is very important to feel good about. Why should a feeling of comfort and joy be sparse? The pleasure of achievent would not be affected.
  9. Suffering is about much more than pain. It includes stress and dissatisfaction or the inability to acknowledge or have a good life. Of course, I'd take mental dissatisfaction over a sharp pain any day, but if we think most people live under stress, apathy and don't get to visualise much joy or wonder in their lives, that is extremely cruel as well.
  10. I see that I tried to reply on every issue. Your last post there was one exception. I don't get what you meant with it. How can I adress something the way you want it or simply agree to your opinion? As far as other things are concerned (relativity of God's point of view), you cannot deny that suffering is real, especially when it is consistent, you cannot escape or see beyond it, it is beyond your control and it has been forced upon you indiscriminately by the definition of your life, again imposed. Pleasure or superficial happiness can sometimes be illusions, but you cannot deny that the dis
  11. With the gained experience of the past year, I can say that my view has changed somewhat. One thing to note is that from my perspective, there IS a God that manipulates people and events and has virtually made the World. It is evident in the way my life has taken place so far. Mostly, He evolved me through discomfort and never seeing the end of it or having a satisfying existence. I find it evident in an intelligent pattern of many things of many kinds. Some people get the same treatment, others worse, others an apparently unremarkable existence, while a few live happily. What is the most ann
  12. Duuudes! I'm still waiting for the game. Just make sure you suggest well in advance, say a week, because I won't be visiting this every day.
  13. Please post any challenges and the time you suggest. Here it's GMT+2. By normal speed I mean 2 levels below maximum. I find maximum speed absurd. It must have been meant for zooming the harvest missions in the campaign. StarCraft is 3 times slower, etc.
  14. Please tell me when you're in for a game. I'm registered as "sava".
  15. All right, I finally have XP service pack 2 installed after a looong misunderstanding with booting (I have Vista AND wanted XP too). Everything works fine until the last step: NETWORK IS FULL on "Dune-2k Networks", password "dune". I took the pro option with the install. Also, I would love if you proposed the closest time you guys are willing to PLAYYY. FINALLY I will be able to play Dune 2000, for the first time in my life, with a human being!!
