The music ruins this. Chaplin doesn't need the music to sound epic and i find the music just gets in the way of the weight of his words in some parts.

Other than that i agree with him of course. I find it funny how hes throwing his weight behind democracy, but look where thats led America now... The best type of system is a socialistic democracy such as Canada or Norway (as well as many other European countries). I'm sure anyone who lives in these countries will agree with me, and anyone whos tired of the American system will also Agree with me.

The American system can work quite fluidly actually- our problem was deregulation through the 60ish(google deregulation). I don't trust the government or any government for that matter with managing society to such a personal degree. The United States is not a democracy, it is a republic establishing the guidelines of smaller republics. Please study our government before you say anything against it, because I'm getting the impression you have a very limited knowledge regarding the subject of US government+history.

Funny. Because Biblical prophecy says that there will be the NWO, but it will be lead by the Antichrist after a disaster which will unite the Earth in a desperate attempt to solve it's problems, who will be the most cunning, intelligent leader man has ever seen. But when his true colours show, well...

In fact, that is happnening now. "Peace and Security"....

well how do you know what the anti christs like???
Tell you what seems I am not allowed to talk about my beliefs i will go at this from a religious perspective.

mabye your god is lying to twist the facts, I mean have you every considered the santanic bible? how do you know satan and the anti christ are evil?
I have never read the santanic bible, but i know people who have acouple of which are christains- how can you make a chioce without all the data. Its like reading history only from the british point of view while ignoring the people they oppressed. You claim to enjoy science, yet its highly unscientific to just choose a side without research first.
The bible is really one sided and if i remember right satan only killed afew people when god killed millions, so its quite possible that satan is actually the good guy. and that the satanists have been right all along.
not trying to insult you but without all the evidence you cant be sure.

United Earth possible???
No, you could never United all the idiots on this planet together
it would be like trying to heard cats in a thunderstorm

The only thing that would have any chance is an outside force, something to big and world changing or ignore- and even then religious wackjobs would most likely get in the way insuring humanities destruction.
so No humanity will never be in anyway united.

Cultural pluralism is very unrealistic, I agree with deer. However, I do think we will unite someday- Humanity is growing closer together, our cultures will mold into one, and when that day comes, I hope for the sake of our existence as a species that human dignity and liberty has been retained through the centuries of societal evolution.

i think that the NWO will take over the world, not negotiate it into submission. either way they will succeed, they are already preparing for their control. i'm just interested how they will do it and it will be so much fun seeing things that dont make too much sense (unless you read it in the spirit as it was written in the spirit) make complete sense!! hopefully it will be in my life time:D

You are a ridiculous hypocrite. "Imaginary God? Really?" I have seen some bullslick in my life, however short is has been thus far. But this takes the biscuit. I don't care whether you think he is imaginary or not, but when you want to spout that claim, at least back it up with some damn evidence, then we can argue about it. I am sick and tired of these people who stand on their fricking high horses, spending their lives attacking Christianiy with out even a shrapnel of empirical evidence. These people are disgusting. Hopefully it is not too late for you to think, rather than thinking in the way of an illogical intolerant buffoon. These remarks that are not backed by anything but the foul stench of ignorance which stains the very flesh of the nostrils of life itself.

Yes my realization that there is no god is illogical,
but claiming prophescy is true isnt...

Lets just look at it from my point of view, technically your an atheist to. I just believ in one less god than you do.

so the question is why dont you believe in all the other gods?
Its far more illogical to believe in one when there are so many than to believe in non when there is no proof for any.
o and its just as intolerent for you to preacher your beliefs as it is for me to preach against them.

and how is what I said an utter joke? you bring up unprovable prophecy claim it fact, he brings up conspericy and claims its fact.

I say neither are fact because they have no evidence, and I am making profound and moronic statements?

and just because you believe a prophecy or a conspericy theory doesnt make it true.
I could probely find evidence that there are Nazis on the moon but that doesnt make it fact.
The fact is, is that I all you have is faith- which i don't so to claim i am wrong because of YOUR faith is intolerent, and i will make fun of it because that all it deserves. If he had claimed that there may be a new world order i would have been ok and not insulted him, and if you had said the prophecies might be correct i would be fine. but as it is you are being intolerent to others beliefs because you claim that your religion is fact alot of people of other faiths and beliefs dont.

I will put the evidence on the table, but I will do it in the forums.
"but as it is you are being intolerent to others beliefs because you claim that your religion is fact alot of people of other faiths and beliefs dont."

Hypocrisy at its finest.

Yah. And you are tolerent. -_-'

Don't make me quote all the hateful comments you pmed/said on profile pages to me, Knight and Elf. You think we just delete them?

How profoundly hypocritical.

Cut this garbage now. I am sick of it and at the end of my tether. You are not representing atheists very well. I respect atheists, but not in this form.

he was speaking his belief- so I cant speak mine? I guess fairness and freedom to speak doesnt exist with christains.or atleast only when it agrees with them.
But Fine i will play nice, but only if you stop trying to claim your religion as fact- then i will stop aswell.
is that a good truce? or is it to intolerent to ask for fairness for once?

Humans vary, some prefer all to think the similarly and others would hate to come across someone vaguely similar to themselves. With this comes the impossibility of one united species. But to surrender the possibility is essentially throwing the baby out with the bath water.

I would not rule out the possibility of planetary, solar, or intergalactic government. The chance we will see any of those soon, a positive one no less, is very low.

Chaos rules, if it didn't reality would be a pretty bland, predictable, and ultimately a rather boring universe.

I think it's quite plausible that humanity will eventually unite. From individuals, we progressed to tribes, then villages and city-states, coalitions of settlements, and finally nations (in a relatively short time period). As I see it, global unity is ultimately just the next step in mankind's development as a species.
