Thread: Moral Conscience
"Going Green" appears to be controlled by some very evil people with a socialist agenda that is trying to devastate the worlds economies and very possibly enslave us all in the end. (their long term goal)
We (motored bikers) have become addicted to these "toys" and continue to develop them by making them better. We are sort of innocently addicted.
At times one feels like a Nazi Scientist who is involved with the technology but somewhat blind to the moral implications of assisting in a cause that has an unsavory agenda.
How do people here resolve their moral reservations about "Going Green"?
I'm finding it harder and harder to have a positive self image of what I'm doing because of the external political implications of it.
People with gas powered bikes probably don't have the same level of moral reservations because it's still gasoline, but for the pure electric the symbolic place it holds now is more difficult.
Other people feeling the same way?
This is Christmas time... a time when getting yourself "right" with the larger picture is important. (good to do it once a week, but if not that at least once a year)

Safe- you could always put cards in your spokes. If you simulated a gas bike, would you feel better?
You are right though, about those who want to enslave us some more, who are using the green agenda and supporting it.

It's sad that the most outrageous joke you can imagine isn't all that far off from what is the actual agenda being pursued.
What amazes me is that "they" (those perpetrating this agenda) got this far before they were discovered. I think in part most of us dismissed as a "joke" the people involved and never imagined that they could ever take power.
It has the same sort of feel as the "National Socialist" german era... everyone thought Hitler was a "joke" and would never actually gain control, but we've seen in our own case how circumstances can force people into a panic and make decisions they wouldn't make in a more normal clear headed situation.
My way of dealing with this is to just wait... eventually there will be another round of elections and as it looks now in America things will turn around pretty quickly. After things are better then if new technologies are advanced it won't be so closely connected to this time period. The bottom line is that any business venture related to electric bikes (or other mb's) should be postponed until later. (the economy being only one reason to wait)
It does take the "wind out of my sails" sometimes... this whole situation...
(I got into this stuff in 2006 and had never imagined that it would have gone like this)

Who's joking, I've already been out checking the mail box. Nothing yet, too soon I guess.
Kerf- that was a good one, but I'm a little light on money right now. Do take GREEN stamps?

Green Stamps, now there's an oldie but a goodie. Back about 1957 or 58 I had a catalog from the Green Stamp store and had my eye on a Voit mask and pair of fins. I made sure I got the grocery sack with the stamps in it so I could hoard them back to my room and into the books. I got that mask and fins and spent many a day at Gulf Shores with my ill gotten booty. Thanks for the trip back home.
