    Humans are definetely a result of the society and system they grow up in.
    You are missing the point. Humans running the society are what would change me. There is no society without the humans. In a cave man world run by humans I would be a cave man. In this society I am me.

    I suspected that you knew I knew, but as indicated by my first word choice, was unsure whether you actually knew or did not know that I knew.

    THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THING.
    I never said sole leader. I said THE leader. But anyways. I am all for a society without any single leader at all. I don't think thats democracy, its more like monkey business.

    Yes, especially when the THE leader gets more and more power.

    Leonardo would say it a hopeless task. But I have hope in every individual, even you.
