    The true definition of a hero is to stand for the right to examine and challenge the moment come to the decision you make by thoroughly looking at every aspect of the issue from all views especially the ones who lived it. To fight for the truth you find there no matter the opposition but to always listen as well.

    Tremendous wisdom, there is no more land to be "discovered". This is only possible when we stop expansionism, exploitation of Natural and human resources ...This will happen only and only when we move towards a higher consciousness.

    What can one expect of a Nation which values "Freedom of Speech" higher than Life (=functioning healthcare etc.) They rather allow literal NAZI-parades incl. tiki-torches, Swastikas and Antisemitist shoutings, than improve their social security... They are proud of having defeated the NAZIs, and let them grow within their own Nation. Thankfully it's a minority, but a very LOUD minority. And those who shout the loudest get the attention.
