    Default Can we really change the world?

    Some believe that the world is shitty because of "Someone like You". Can a simple act of kindness, passed continually onwards, really cause the world to change? I mean monk's are still being shot and killed, we still murder each other, still show complete disregard to our environment, and still treat each other like garbage. Why do we have this obsession with this need for superiority, a need for something trivial that can distinguish myself from you? All these questions. But what do you all really believe; I believe that, though I may be insulted or treated like crap, I try not to allow that to be the foundation on which I form an opinion about one person, or a group of people. Nor do I believe that genetics play any type of role in the formation of a person's identity or character, so that I can be accepting of any and everyone. Or at least I try to be. In general, I try to not become a shitty person because other treat me like shit. And I believe, no matter how futile it may be for a single person to change the world, when I am dying, on my death-bed, I want leave this world knowing that I tried my hardest, with kindness and love, to changes this world, and if not the world, only one person.

    i dont think one can change the world. that's pretty hard since each of us has its own way of looking at things.

    Well echoblaze, I guess it was my fault that you misunderstood. What I meant to say is: Even though people dislike each other, and even though they may take advantage of one another, I try to believe that people don't, in fact, suck. It is the way in which they treat each that sucks. I would rather believe in others and be disappointed once in a while, instead of believing everyone to be assholes and be correct most of the time. I try not be a hypocrite, but everyone, I believe, have at least some conflicting ideas. And it is the optimism and hope that fuels this belief, that fuels me, to try and change the world.

    Yeah, I love this poet too Khareen. Try check out Stephen Dobs, I love his poem about rushing.

    I dunno dude. I read both your posts and I think that echo did an okay job with the paraphrasing bit.

    I think the majority of people are idiots. They're not necessarily bad, just stupid. I find if with this approach, I'm seldom dissappointed when I meet new people. I may not be optimistic about the masses, but I'm cheerful in general, so somehow it all balances out.

    Save it for a farking blog dude. I saw this thread when it was made and created a rather direct and intrusive post that pointed out all the elitist idealism and banal platitudes your post perpetuated but decided to trash it since it was too rude.
