I'm shocked that derp started a thread!
I used to be a libertarian. But the problem is that most people don't want to accept responsibility for their lives. They need something to blame, and governments serve that function nicely.
Put everyone on equal footing, and there would be a scramble for power.
The vast majority of people, given power, would become fat cats.
Now I believe that change will come, not through revolution, but through people wanting to be better people. When the common goal is love: not some obscure political leaning. It's actually very simple.
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."
"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
