Re: What is the most important war in human history?

I think the most important war is the one who is being fought nowadays. I'm not talking about this construction of "war against terror", I'm talking about this real global war between the one who are maximazing their profit on cost of the one who are not able to compete with, the one who are most of the time invisible. It's not a war between countries per se and the front goes not only between different countries. The front is the demarcation line between the one who are included the cycle of gaining and invest and the one who are excluded. This line is within every country as well. Perhaps someone demurs that I got off the topic but history may not be something in the past as an enclosed matter. We are living in history and moreover this kind of exploitation which I've tried to describe is lasting since hundred of years, I merely point to colonialism. The war is not a declared one but it is one.

Believe in soulmates? You're more likely to 'ghost' romantic partners.

Does believing in true love make people act like jerks?

Sex & Relationships
  • Ghosting, or cutting off all contact suddenly with a romantic partner, is not nice.
  • Growth-oriented people (who think relationships are made, not born) do not appreciate it.
