I can't pretend to be an expert on war because I try to avoid all things related to war and the millitary.

@ iamnotaparakeet. 'Lets say?' What do you think most of the human race is engaged in right this moment? peaceful activities, sure some nasty bugger is plotting to hurt someone and some peoples are engaged in violence with another but it is not the dominant mode of behaviour or even of conflict res...

Ex raver and DJ promoter/event manager through the 90's breakbeats and neo-tribalisms were my thing max speed limit 144bpm [otherwise sensory overload occurs].

The problem with trickle-down economics is 30 years of evidence that it does not actually happen that way in reality. Thats because of a blockage called corporate greed.
