Natural gas pipes, opium trade, military bases "strategically" located.... enough for western governments

And no one but the "western governments" uses oil, now do they?
The absolute hateful mindset here is sickening.

What do you think of all the countries boycotting the UN racism meeting?
Banning religious criticism is about protecting authoritarian Theocratic states. It's an attempt to prevent criticism of the scripture they abuse to keep their workers subservient. It's a political issue, not a religious one.
Could you give an example of this "sickening" "hateful mindset"?
"There comes a time in the affairs of humankind when we must stand firm on the fundamental principles that binds us," he said. "There comes a time to reaffirm our faith in fundamental human rights and dignity and worth of us all, a time to give the virtues of tolerance in respect for diversity their fullest due and look beyond a past that divides us towards a future that unites us. The time is now, ladies and gentleman. The time is now."
Blaming the "western governments" has become a pitiful example of displaced fear.

Until it is, we will always be background chatter, amounting to nothing.
sorry if you're a non-Pagan Druid

I was in Richmond Virginia, (do you think that is a rich place? full of consuming people?) driving through a neighborhood where every other home was boarded up or burned out, with children playing in the street, calling it home. You may not know this or see it, take everything you know from disinformation, but I am going to tell you now, what ever it is you are getting your information from is FAR from the truth.
More people die from violence in America then in all of Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan, NOW, EVERY DAY!
Most of it is directly from illegal drug trade. Our open boarders must now close. What ever it is that makes people think we do nothing but consume, very obviously feeds from lies of disinformation. A drug addicted world is infecting our country, and we are sick of it.
How about Cuba? on & on I could go down the "western Americas".
Drop the "west" thing. It is simply NOT so. This disinformation is exactly where this goes, and the most outspoken critics of the Muslim religion and world DO NOT LIVE HERE. Why are we supporting Afghanistan? Did you forget 9-11-2001?
So that slavery will be abolished, so that those people can have thier own country. THAT is all. They have hated each other since the beginning of recorded time. Now it affects EVERYONE, all over the world. Just listen to what Iran brought to the UN and why so many boycotted the meeting.
It is real, it is going to get worse. And it isn't OUR FAULT!
in those days we DID lead by example: in Baghdad Muslims, Christians and Jews of all fields of knowledge came together to give answers to life's questions WITHIN (and that's the part I like best) a religious framework
Maybe it's time to analyse why the states have that great need of drugs

There is no such thing.
As I mentioned, "pagan" is a slur I simply do not like.
It has become something more. However I see druids as others see Hindus. Is a Hindu pagan?
That's another debate entirely.
And I would rather be called what I am A Pagan Druid who tries to follow the old ways of my land, and see that the term Pagan is not however much you want to believe it so a derogatory term today.I would rather be called what I am, a druid. (neo druid for those who want)
