I or We? 083115
I've had some realizations recently regarding homo sapiens. Homo sapiens is
the species known as mankind or for the gender sensitive, humanity.
Have you ever been in a family that was “ours”? You might have said “we
want or we should...”
Alternatively you might have said “my family” or “I want or I think we
What is the difference there? How about addressing it as "the family?"
As a single unit, I or you, you can be part of a family and do very well. So
how does we differ from I?
“I” is always individual. “We” is plural. Both can imply ownership.
A team is not the sum of its members, it is greater than that. A family is a
team. Members should be operating in cooperation and support of each
My family implies ownership and a separateness from the family. Our family
also implies ownership but in an “our family” situation you are the family as
much or more than if you own.
Do you think a sport team owner is really part of the team? I think usually
they are not. I think if they are, the team will be much more successful!
It is true that the difference between my and our is splitting hairs. But “my” or
“mine” can allow me to be separate from the family while still owning it. Our
family puts me in the family, makes me the family, not exterior to it.
Here at XYZ company, we present the highest quality... The “we” puts you in
the company with responsibility! Saying my company can allow you to be
separate and lessens your ownership and responsibility!
Do you have a church? Do you think of in terms of my or mine or ours and
we? To distance the church from you, you could say "the church" and put it
How about the military? Many men and women have been part of a military
branch in many countries.
From your experience, was it a “we” or “us” or “they” situation? Personally, I
was in the Army. It wasn't my army and I certainly didn't think if terms of “we”!
Truthfully, when I was in Viet Nam, it was me against them. Them or they
was everyone above me. I was an enlisted man and part of the military
because of that only. I did not own the military. It was "the military!"
You may think less of me for that statement. I considered what we were
doing was a gross waste of time. There was no indication we were
attempting to accomplish anything constructive!
Young men, boys, were being killed as part of political financial games. It is
the same and worse now all over the planet. Wars for profit!
But back to my point.
What is your ownership of humanity, mankind? Do you have responsibility for
our survival or is that the government's job?
When you listen to the media and other government propaganda machines
that tell you how horrible some other nation or country is, do you go into
agreement and think how bad “they” are? If you focus on the atrocities
others are said to be committing, you are likely to really distance yourself
from them. Am I correct?
You've just been sat up to agree with another war or the continuation of the
current undeclared war being waged.
Humanity, no matter where they are or who they are, is our spices! We are
not perfect, we err rather routinely!
The solution to the atrocities is not killing people. It is not starving people or
destroying decades of construction.
If we look at humanity as us, we can do constructive things to help calm and
render the Earth peaceful.

I do not believe war is a natural state of existence. It is created by the insane
who want something for nothing. The insane feel any live person is a
potential threat to them. No, that doesn't make sense! They are insane.
Behind the insane banksters and politicians are the psychiatrist. The insane
are never happy and have huge fears and problems in life. They often have
a lot of money and the psychiatrist sees them as a way to create upset and
destruction thus requiring more of their fraudulent services.
The psych is behind the deaths and destruction. Even the rare politician is
waking up to the fact that normal people don't go shooting up others unless
drugged. The psychs love to target defenseless children.
The psych hooks children on drugs and thus the child will create continuous
upsets, be upset himself, and generate a future income for the psychiatrist.
The true insane are the psychiatrist. The psychs always lie. The psychiatrist
is always “I” and never operates to enhance survival of any group. The
psych, being insane, only allies for destructive purposes such as bigpharma.

When you see the other man or woman, realize that our survival is linked. I'm
not promoting sympathy.
Earth is being killed. Man is not expanding as a species as he is being
poisoned from every direction.
The poisoning is both physical, by fluoride, radiation, GMOs etc, and mental
by a constant torrent of bad news often a complete lie.
Question your information sources.
Man is NOT basically evil though today you can expect many to act that way.
People very often treat others as they have been treated. Kick the dog long
enough and you find the dog biting everyone.
You're not a dog. Treat your fellow man with dignity and respect!

A Philosophic Note
As Beings, we must have some space between ourselves. If we occupied the
exact same space, Beings can do that, we would be the same. Very factually,
we are each very unique and always will be, always!
Have you ever wondered why you don't just know?
I'm not talking about education, just knowledge. In education, you don't know
because you lack the information, you don't understand it or it is false. All the
psych professions are false, based on lies all! Any faith, trust or knowledge
from a psych creates stupidity in the trusting person.
But back to my question, in life, why don't we know? I'll give an opinion which
is true for me. You may not see this or agree:
We do know however we've been lied to and have believed the lies. Hence
we do not know the truth or so it seems.
Everyone's wondered how we got here and everyone has abandoned the
search for that answer. Well not everyone!
If you can track with that, read more of my articles, there's a bit of truth in
