People need to separate what they consider real change in the human machine and any progress we have made with great struggle over the last two thousand years, it simply has not been long enough with regards to evolving for any change at all to have been imparted on our bodies or brains. Millions of years are required for an animal to improve with regard to it's genetic function, any differences we see now from two thousand years are simply the result of breeding, the "survival of the fittest" short term (generational) change, small changes like being taller or having a somewhat longer lifespan. So the argument I make here is that our basic machine is the same machine the Pharaoh's ruled Egypt with, the same biological machine Ghengis Khan had. We can attribute all of our advances to technology, a more sophisticated society, and better education. We are wrong when we think we can no longer have tyrants like Stalin because we have "evolved.” The only difference between a homicidal racially prejudiced misanthrope dictator like Adolf Hitler and any one of us is perhaps our quality of mental health and beliefs. Each one of us with improper education and possibly mental issues could be Hitler. The only real way to maintain our grip on what we have accomplished since the time of Christ is to never become complacent and never assume that leaders are always acting with the interest of the country in mind, to always think about what the issues are and regard the facts in proper perspective each on our own. Do not assume that people in government don't do their job and obstruct the country's progress because they are patriotic. Consider they may be obstructing things deliberately and are in fact like Benedict Arnold, a general during the revolutionary war that defected to the British. Yes I believe the possibility of a traitor and treason in our midst still exists today, to deny it is to be naive. Know that America's real enemies (not just terrorism), the other world powers that oppose our way of life like Russia and China, have been quiet for decades, but have not been idle. Evidence is surfacing they have been hard at work all along, facilitating a cyber attack on the U.S.A. that will cripple it long enough to invade. Do you think the Russians thank Reagan for the sanctions and grand speeches leading to the fall of the Berlin wall and the political and economic collapse of U.S.S.R. that followed? Russia was the origin of nearly all new viruses after Microsoft caused the collapse of their bootleg computer industry as well. The greatest mistake we make is to think we are safer than ever, running our government like we drive, on cruise control while using a smart phone, drinking coffee. We are about to have a fatal accident, wise up! No more obstruction, it's treason when it makes us weak enough for our enemies to step in and and take over, and steel your resolve, we as a nation execute our traitors.
