    As a society we are completely delusional about the world around us.
    Come on, if this is the best we can do at this point in our civilisation, then we are pretty damn tragic.

    That may be so. The only problem is, not EVERYONE agrees on the definition of a "good" world.

    Every single person on this planet is ready to embrace a world society that makes sense. A society where we all get along and cooperate, a society where no one starves, where no one suffers. Everyone is ready to live in and contribute to a society where people do not live under horrific conditions. Everyone is ready to embrace a society where we all cooperate for a better world.

    I think the world you are describing must be in a parallel universe somewhere.

    So, we should listen to everyone, every single individual, and create a good world in the image of every single individual.

    Then I think we would end up with a good world anyways.

    According to that eminent philosopher, Charles "Chip" Kelly: "90% of people don't care about your problems and 10% of the people are glad you have them."

    Why are they glad you have them?



    also. is it not so that people are sarcastic and unpleasant to each other because they themselves have no inner harmony. Its easier to create disharmony for others than to create harmony for yourself. People can even feel better for doing so.


    So. Why is it he says that 10% are like that? Why why why?????

    Really? Is that a fact or speculation?

    What would they do in a good world that they were happy in, that worked well, was free, well organised etc etc (all the things from the first post again)?

    Fact.
    A world that they were happy in would be one in which everyone is a Muslim extremist who believes the same as they do. Anything else would be unacceptable.
