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 should....”
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
“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 other.
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
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 over there!
How about the military? Many men and women have been part of a military branch in many
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
The solution to the atrocities is not killing people. It is not starving people or destroying decades
If we look at humanity as us, we can do constructive things to help calm and render the Earth

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
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
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.
Conflicts on Earth is a related article.
When you see the other man or woman, realize that our survival is linked. I'm not promoting
Earth is being killed. Man is not expanding as a species as he is being poisoned from every
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
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 each.
The Way To Happiness.
I use The Way To Happiness as a moral guide in my day to day life. It is not a religious text. The
people I know that have read it, all agree with its precepts.
You might give it a try. You can watch the videos on my site about them or go to their site. They
are very well done.
If you need gentle assistance, contact me. I am trained in resolving conflicts very successfully.
Helping someone spot what condition(s) and what the solutions are to handle them is exactly
what I do in life.
Improving the conditions of others is my destination and purpose in life. A little true knowledge
can go a long way. I do not ask that you believe anything!
Routinely I say #EverythinWill_B_OK!I believe that is true!
Also, “A person is only as valuable as he aids others in their games of survival!”
