Same answer as Tech
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
We get taxed through the arse for everything. Petrol is currently £1.10 ($2.10) a litre here and everything else we pay for is really expensive.
The criminal justice system is weak and people aren't punished they way they should be.
There is more of an incentive to be unemployed or a criminal than there is to be a decent citizen putting back into society.
Petrol is equally expensive all over Europe mate. The Americans have it good even though they constantly whine about oil-prices We must realize that it's expensive to drive large gaz-guzzlers. Get a smaller fucking car with decent fuel efficiency you morons!
I agree that it feels somewhat demotivating to make an honest living in countries such as ours, but I'd pick honor and integrity over slouching and sponging off any day. You need to be motivated by your own drive to excel and personal satisfaction in these regions. And we manage don't we?
But that's why I'd only be prepared to die for certain people as opposed to the country who by all accounts don't really do anything for me.
I give my country more than it gives me.
I would only die for my family. My country is NOT my family, I do not care about politics and such, in my perfect world there would be no Countries, just a whole United Earth Confederation. No race, no religion, we are one and we should take of eachother.
So FUCK everything that does not belong to my family :3
I would die for my family, which means that if their lives were in danger and it was from our country being legitimately threatened or attacked... yes, I would.
But right now for the BS war in Iraq or our "war on terror", hell no.
Exactly, but WW 2 was a legitimate threat to us in the future if we stayed out. So if it was worth my Grandpa to fight in then I would have gone too.Originally Posted by Flex
