1981 saidThe same things the native Americans would say about you: that you killed their people and stole their territories.
As an American, here is my view.
You’re right. Well, kind of. I didn’t steal anything from anyone. However, I’m also not a fan of the American government either. It’s turned into a sudo-monarchy via the FED and most Americans don’t agree with about 80% of what our rulers do either. I feel for the American Indians (of which I am 1/8th Native American). Just as I feel bad for any group or person who has been wronged. I love the America that followed it’s Constitution. What we have now is the shadow of a democratic republic.
In a Democracy, majority rules.
In a Democratic Republic, the minority is protected from the majority.
Big difference.I’m done ranting now. I just had to get this all off my chest. I’ve been furious with the world system lately. It appears as though we are leaving the era of Power and entering a new era. Hopefully, it’s an era of Ethics so the world can heal itself. Thanks for listening.
I agree with you. Today’s democracy is not a direct democracy as the one in ancient Greece. What you are saying about pseudo-monarchies would not be something completely new in world history. 2000 years ago, after the death of Caesar, the Roman Republic was transformed into the Roman Empire when Augustus was named Princeps (first citizen, ruler). This was a masked transformation, as the citizens were told they were still living in a republic, reformed. Time passed, the people got used and the emperor’s privileges increased.
The British have the most famous monarchy in the world, and they know it well. The world itself is more interested in the British monarchy than in others. When Princess Victoria of Sweden (who is the first in line of succession – female, yes) married her gym trainer, the event was not so intensely broadcast by worldwide TV’s.
I believe 3D text effects that use two layers are suited to the “Styles” category since, well, they are made with just styles. Doesn’t really matter how many styles are in use to create an effect, although the 3D effect is not created because of a 3D looking style, but because of 2D styles arranged properly.
I would say “Christ is Risen” to those who are Christians, instead of using a word which refers to a pagan Germanic goddess But that’s because I’m a Romance language speaker. Native British and German speakers are the only people using the word “Easter”. So, Christ is Risen and Happy Easter!
On Adobe Exchange I believe they don’t reject at all, but the process of approving can almost take indefinitely. I’m having 2 files in the “new submission” list for about a month, I’ve turned 24 during this period and who knows, maybe I’ll get even older, nothing is sure with Adobe Exchange.
I haven’t bought a desktop computer for quite some years and now I’m mainly using a notebook with a monitor attached. But what I’ve noticed is that prices outside my country are much lower. A system similar to the dell you have your eye on costs almost double here. $750 for that dell is an amazing price.
thank you too graphic4444 for purchasing my text styles!
