Could We Make The World A Better Place?

Can we get it together? Would we be able to forget religion and unite to work towards a better future? Would we be able to oppose lobbies and choose natural sources of energy? Could we see money as it is and focus on moral values and kindness? Could we redistribute the world's wealth so we wouldn't have children starving? Could we stop fueling wars and spread peace? Is there any way we can stop playing this Monopoly game mixed with Clue and Charade and understand everything will go back into the box anyway? Could we stop being the 1% and the 99% and BE 100%?

Maybe. But Im too busy right now to change the world.

The problem with making the world a better place is that people are greedy, selfish, and are stuck on belief systems. Religion is a form of programming, and people kill one another over religion. Greed and selfishness are a part of human nature and these need to be controlled.

I see the real problem lying with the fact that some people think they have the solution for all our ills and they then get very cross when not everyone agrees with them. This is seen most clearly with religion, but it also applies to politics and many other varieties of philosophy. It seems to be hard-wired into us not to be tolerant of opposition but to resist it with violence. The world will not be a better place as long as it contains evangelical religions and aggressive patriotism.

I'm not sure I can pick any of these options. There are a lot of people who seem far to concerned with having things their way to care about improving the world and I'm not sure we can do it without their help.

Well you really get it then. It will happen in our lifetime but at great cost.

The real problem is that in the world there are too many people ready to listen to one person who makes them believe he can solve all problems. We should think with our head and act individually to make the world a better place. I am sure that most people do not want wars, but they follow the leaders.
