27. I went to one meeting. felt no genuine human warmth.

 

nor acceptance. No overt hostility, though. that was 6 years past. I believe in one or more conspiracies. I allow for population manipulation and control techniques being used by 'leadership' people who 'democratically' were voted in or who came in on the business end of an M-16a1, Chicom, Kalashnikov. This is all a part of living existence in any country, just look at the slaughter of people in Syria, by their own government apparatus. Extremely sad situation. Yet people(citizens) are murdered, assassinated, covertly or openly by disaffected and/or threatened members of any group in any given country all the time. War is part of this slaughter that we haven't gotten our fill of yet. I wonder. But back to the point, nothing overt turned me off of them(libertarians), just unease at their extreme reservation of talking in front or even with me. I was the only, classified as such, african-american in attendance that evening.. I just see me as a part of the human race, not better, not worse. If their reason for not accepting me 'in' was something as petty as ones skin hue, shame on them. Their loss. I find most 'groups' have their theories on current and past, usually, political intrigues. No harm in that. I believe our poles are going to melt. I just pray both won't. This 'methane' and the Fukushima things worries me. That's not so bad, as is the worry IT IS the 'clowns' running their show. We do some pretty horrible things to each other in the name of 'power and profit'. Just my take on Libertarians. They are a diverse crowd, intrigue and conspiracy wise, I see. Liberal is a good way to go about. Acceptance of all unless a person show themselves as not worthy of respect, like hitler, ghengis kahn, bush/cheney/rice cabal, assad in syria..
