English Teacher X and Almond Eyes Discuss Globalism and Revolution

Sometimes I make drafts of posts which I then forget about. This is a conversation I had with Almond Eyes back in 2011. I re-discovered it a couple of times but since the big protests in Russia and America had stopped it seemed irrelevant.

But now -- in honor of the Olympics as well as the violent street protests in Thailand, Ukraine and Venezuela -- here's a discussion about globalism, revolution, and the eternal cycle of it all I had with Almond Eyes.




English Teacher X

i suppose you survived the worst, back in the 90's, it can't get much worse than that
07.12.11

Almond Eyes
they all assholes at the government. or they pretend them to be, thus.. who cares, nothing will change, will only get worst and worst, or stay the same at least
07.12.11

English Teacher X

07.12.11

Almond Eyes

English Teacher X
yeah, that's a good question
07.12.11

Almond Eyes
not possible every single person become rich
07.12.11

English Teacher X
i saw article, similar things happened in world in the late 1800's, 1930's, and 1960's
07.12.11
bascially what happens -- a lot of globalism, some people become very rich, other people become poor
there is a lot of social unrest
protests and riots,
and often huge wars
and then, countries close borders, travel and trade is restricted
and then, people start to protest THAT

Almond Eyes
as I told you - will be only worst
07.12.11

English Teacher X
and then it all starts over again
07.12.11

Almond Eyes
nothing principally changes
yeas
everything is ever again )
07.12.11

English Teacher X
the endless cycle
look at Russia -- Bolshevik revolution against the rich, and then in 1980's, revolution against communist control
07.12.11


Almond Eyes
we will all die )
07.12.11

English Teacher X
yes, one day we will all die -- hopefully not too soon!
i will die before you, I'm 15 years older than you
07.12.11

Almond Eyes
well, man die earlier )
I hope when we will 60 we will be sitting at the beach smoking weed )

07.12.11

English Teacher X
yeah, that would be nice
if Miami isn't under water at that time!
07.12.11

Almond Eyes

07.12.11

which i debate
50-50
07.12.11

English Teacher X
it already is, in many ways
if you look at "quality of life" listings
america always in the middle
07.12.11

Almond Eyes

English Teacher X
3rd world countries are more fun to live in, though
in my experience
Russia was a LOT more fun back in 2000-2005

I totally agree with you ETX, ex soviet countries were so much more fun at the end of the nineties till 2005-6.
I dont see any reasons to go there now, even for the girls who by the way became even tougher and demanding than in the west.
