"All the flavor and no calories..."

“Love the earth and sun and the animals,
Despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks,
Stand up for the stupid and crazy…

Walt Whitman, Preface to "Leaves of Grass"

That is what we call "wishful thinking".
But I have a hope.
In the future people who like wars and fights and want to get more and more power, will just have to learn how to use a computer.
They will be able to play ALL the wars they like and it wouldn’t change much in their private life.
Tell me: people like Soros who pride to say they own 25 billions dollars, how will ever be able to spend that money?
For them it is just numbers or ounces of gold they will never enjoy.
Pretending or real wouldn’t make any difference.
I trust the new generations.
They know how to pretend, they like the virtual world much better than the real one.
When you win a war in a video game you have a double satisfaction: first you won and second nobody died.
It is something like Aspartame "All the flavor and no calories..."
