Cute. But just another way of saying that if everyone thought a certain way, then no one would fight. We all might die because we wouldn't think it was necessary to till the ground to plant food, but at least we wouldn't be fighting.

There's only the way - which ever way it want's to weigh itself.

Balance is the key.

Despicable, simply despicable.

Consciousness acting as and through the character Adolf Hitler - is acting upon itself only.


Adolf Hitler was not a character. He was a man - a brutal murderous man who was responsible for the greatest number of humans killed ever.


Don't know if it was mentioned or not but that dubious honor historically belongs to Mao.
