The above was the remark about which I wanted to give you backing.
I really don't know much about David Icke. Except that I did read one of his books and he does have some very strange ideas. However, I did like the ethics of respect and tolerance for ones neighbour which he explained.
I do think it matters for whom one votes Carley. It is very different in Britain than in the States. We have two major parties, as in the US. Our two parties used to be very different in their attitudes to society. Now there is not much difference between the two. But, still, the power of voting is our only strength. That is, our strength is in our numbers and it is the only 'peaceful' power that we can wield against the very rich.
I do think it is vitally important that the ordinary people trust and support one another. I do think the Government (Wealthy) have a hand in causing division among us - and purposely. I am always very warey of any news item that seeks to divide and weaken the ordinary working people. That is, for instance, by pointing the finger at the immigrant population and trying to blame them for our economic problems.
Anyway....I just wanted to say that. And far from moving us off topic, I think you have made this debate much more interesting.
I had not realised until this Walden forum, how people of our age, in Britain and in the US and Canada, differ in their cultural experiences. How our formative years form our opinions and attitudes and how different your social backgrounds are from my own.
Please don't see this as any criticism - in fact, I am surprised, delighted and interested.
