Psychologists say that human behavior is 90% animal instincts and only 10% reason. Does it "feel right" when someone comes into yr perceived personal or local or national space? Well, as Charles Galton Darwin, a physicist wrote, people repel each other like gas molecules. And this is true. They fill in the space available by pulling away from the closeness of others. So, the brotherhood of men, a global loving friendship among people is only a dream. Just see all the wars so far. A basic change of human nature is in order, if we want a peaceful world. This is realizable only by total terror of a Dictatorship, or the creation of a new, peaceful human DNA. Old human genetics is obsolete in the system Man has created by now. There are plans to create a perfected, new type of humans, and the new official trend to defend the Odd and Queer and Trans people is the first step toward the inclusion of the New Type of Man into the crowd of the Obsolete People. Peaceful Humanoids will replace gradually the present old type of crowd - in 2003 a "Bio Ethics Commission" of Bush Jr. published a Report on those plans. Certainly, underground experiments are going on to this effect. Dr. John Coleman in "The Conspirators' Hierarchy" told that by the "Agenda 21" of the United Nations, by the next century the present nation states will be defunct, there will be no family units, No "Private Propedy" and no individual rights. And the present city life will cease to exist, and the pop will be put into reserved areas they won't be allowed to leave. (End of general tourism). There will be no cash (in fact, it will disappear starting from 2021, as announced in the Media.) And barter trade will be forbidden. The greatest of all changes is coming, but the crowd, immersed in the consumers' system won't believe it. OK, now, this train of thoughts came to me today, because at one spot, where I usually feed a few starlings and I put a few peanuts under a tree and bush for squirrels, today a Notice was stuck on the tree trunk, telling me: "Don't feed the birds, they find their own wild food." At that spot a guy who lives in the house at that corner, told me several times: "Do it in your own area." So, it's OK for these territorial guys if I feed wild birds, just I should do it elsewhere, not in "their area." Because here in Vancouver there are no fences at many houses, and the tenants, mainly those living on ground floor or in basements, are irritated if anyone even stops on the sidewalk in front of their windows. Territorial instinct, good-bye loving friendship of all people. Be a friend by not coming close. With the human crowd growing uncontrollably, this is problematic, as the Earth is not growing. Obviously, a new type of human must replace the present human race with its wild animal instincts, which control their behavior. The present human animal, 14 times as big in numbers as it was in 1600 AD, is going toward a major crisis, and by the 22nd century the UN will bring on a new man and a new system. Refugees, go somewhere else, but all space is taken, so, where? The present human race has become obsolete, and ultimately will be replaced by a new humanoid type and the system by a totally communitary, no national, and no family based system. Even a few nice critters are not tolerated now, I'm constantly told: "go somewhere else" to feed your animal friends. But if people feel so toward peaceful animals, how do they feel toward each other? They mostly hide their feelings, but as the crowd grows and resources dwindle, there would be total war. New system and new type of humans are needed to live in peace on earth.
