Re: what are your ideas on God
I believe in God, but I also believe what science tells us. I really don't see why so many people think the two are incompatible; the Universe may have been created by the Big Bang, humans may have evolved from apes, (both of which I believe) but that doesn't mean that God isn't the cause of these events. God could well have used the Big Bang to create the Universe, and guided the steps of evolution. Just because something has a scientific explanation doesn't automatically mean that it wasn't caused by God. It's quite likely that God needs to play by the rules of his Universe, meaning that he needs to find a scientifically compatible way of doing things. A miracle is still a miracle, even if it is scientifically possible.

- Bezmenov described this process as "a great brainwashing" which has four basic stages.
- The first stage is called "demoralization" which takes from 15 to 20 years to achieve.
When these companies compete, the people lose.
- When a company reaches the top of the ladder, they typically kick it away so that others cannot climb up on it. The aim? So that another company can't compete.
- When this phenomenon happens in the pharmaceutical world, companies quickly apply for broad protection of their patents, which can last up to 20 years, and fence off research areas for others. The result of this? They stay at the top of the ladder, at the cost of everyday people benefitting from increased competition.
- Since companies have worked out how to legally game the system, Amin argues we need to get rid of this "one size fits all" system, which treats product innovation the same as product invention. Companies should still receive an incentive for coming up with new products, he says, but not 20 years if the product is the result of "tweaking" an existing one.
