Ok, so how rad would it be if we used earth correctly? What if, we did not harm our earth? What if we took care of the planet we live on? Think about it. What if there were no money hungry, power starved assholes in the world to make everything so fucking complicated? What is money? What is value? Why do we need a such a strict money system? Everything we have on the earth should be our right to have, so why is there a price on everything? Because humans are lazy and stupid. Long ago, when the earth was new, you could take a ship anywhere you would like, no one could stop you. What if we did everything out of good? We as a world need to cut money out of our equation of life and use TRADE and barter goods. And what is this war? Why have guns and heavy nukes that take out the innocent people? Why can’t the governments of the world stop being pussies and duke it out fist to fist? But god forbid we don’t spend millions of dollars on wars in which thousands of people die. This post is totally pointless because the thought of humanity changing as a whole is a dream far away. Comment with other thoughts.

How are you personally achieving this change in the world?

Have you lobbied your government representative? have you attended and anti-war rally? have you joined any groups that trade food instead of buying it?

Or is what you have written idealism?

But its good. Keep asking questions..keep wondering. Keep asking why

Go to the library and explore it. Read as much as you can if you are sincerely interested in bettering this world.

@breynolds1633, Beautiful idea. Our society is so wrong in so many ways. We need to love eachother more and separate ourselves from eachother less.

We have allowed ourselves to get caught up in believing lies that would have us believe that life is a contest or that material leads to happiness. We were made to love, and show our infinite potential when we love. Selfishness and gluttony should never be celebrated.

The world is as we make it. Every second of your life and every calorie of your energy is eventually spent and each has an effect on the world. We should really change the stuff we don’t like about the world and ourselves.

@breynolds1633,

Definitively go to the library..perhaps smoke a little cannabis for a change of perspective..and explore. Pretend its a whole new magic world..and just start going to each section and picking up interesting books.

topdocumentaryfilms.com is a favorite source of mine.

In particular I like:
http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/james-burke-connections/ <–My favorite series

and of course Morgan Freemans Through the wormhole.

@breynolds1633, I love you too! I feel connected to you at this moment. I can tell that we are riding the same wave of love.

Unfortunately we are strangers on a blog and will likely never get to converse or share time with each other, but least we are both on the most awesome forum that ever existed.

I’m extremely happy to know that you are out there being such a beautiful person and, hopefully, living a beautiful life. If for some reason I could ever be of use to you, please let me know. Who knows right?

I hope you have a great year in 2013. Hopefully we can learn to love the world and each other the way that we were made to.

Well our greedy ass ancestors were the ones that fucked the world up and now most people in the are content with leaving it fucked up. If every person that felt like this could come together and tell the world what we think at least someone would hear us. Unfortunately most of us are silently witnessing the destruction of this world by greedy mother fuckers.

As if there wasn’t enough greed for money and power to motivate people, everyone would be lazy. That makes sense, I’ve never seen greedy people sitting on their couch all day.

To me, the question is not so much why, but…how?
How do YOU apply your system of belief in order to achieve a better world, for you and the others ; how do YOU update the mentalities so the very same people (is there really a “them” into the equation?) trapped inside are no longer left alone. How do we take the responsibilities for who we are, for what we know in order to understand what is really going on?
Action is only what I called a “tamed idealism” :-)
take care

@razique, lolol yooo dude, lay off the agro and smoke a bowl. It was simply a “wouldn’t it be cool” statement, did I fuckin say anywhere In that statement that I was gonna do anything about it? Lol noo dude, I’m saying no ones ever going to do ANYthing about it so calm your nads. The earth is to fucking far gone and over populated to make a movement like that. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE GREED, because there’s always the one selfish asshole who wants to much or thinks he has to little. So why wouldn’t you want to be an equal? And if EVERYone had the same mindset that everyone should help everyone? Where social classes,religion or skincolor didnt divide us as one world? think about it, you cant just go visit whatever part of the world you want. you’d have to have money to do that. We all should be able to see our planet and meet people so different, or not so different from us. That was my whole point dude.
“This post is totally pointless because the thought of humanity changing as a whole is a dream far away.” Said me. Piss up a rope with your negative energy.

@breynolds1633, I think you totally misunderstood my point. Loike I said : “to me”

I’m cool, totally cool. You know I used to denounce the world around, sitting on my desk, behing my screen and thinking “they are all selfish, no one is doing anything about that” but wasn’t I the co-author of that as well? I don’t know if there will be always greed around. I mean, mentalities can change ; history has proven they were both a society and a culture by-product. Of course I want equity, and that is what my answer was about :) (where did I say I didn’t want that?)
You need to undersand, there is no “them”, we are within the same system, and we are all humans as well, and that is what my answer was about. No one but me, and you will do anything. Yes money is a plague, and that’s why we need to think about meanings and our responsibilites we need to take. (the “you” was impersonal by the way)

@breynolds1633 Lets go be dirty hippies somewhere with our chillest friends and family :D.
I watched this documentary last night called The Workshop-on netflix- It was so fucking great, I never realized how compartmentalized sexuality, emotions and natural human behavior are, its so skewed!

I’ll edit what I previously said: There isn’t anything you can do about it, except learn how to be happy. And that is entirely possible.

@cognizantelephant, you’re totally right, it is a generation thing, and I guess it bothers me that its only getting worse, but I can be happy, it’s just lithe annoying thought of the problem never changing

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve asked every single one of those questions over and over in my head. It’s just so frustrating how regular people can figure this out, but somehow humanity managed to mess everything up. (Well, not somehow, by the love of greed and power). But at least now I have some relief that someone out there has asked the exact same questions I’ve been asking since I was a little child.

@breynolds1633, have you considered that the current state of things might be a natural phase in the life cycle of hunanity?

I’m fairly certain there were wars and greedy assholes before money. Why? Well because if you can get more for your own, then you prosper more and grow even stronger…and so on….

Your greed is here as well. Only its manifesting in a different way. You’re basically saying “there’s a bunch of people who have made things a certain way and have control of most of the stuff that I WANT TOO, wouldn’t it be great if we axed those other people so we could get more of what we want?”

It’s pretty obvious that there are enough resources on the planet to feed, cloth, educate and shelter everyone on the planet. The only reason that hasn’t happened is because the people who control the majority of resources do not give when they don’t need. And more so, the banking institutions that gathered all those resources, did so through credit. Credit slowly drains wealth from the populous and puts it into the hands of the banks and those in control of them.

There is this lie that those people try to convince us of. That lie is “There isn’t enough to go around” and it simply isn’t true. The loss of lifestyle would be rather minimal. The prosperity that would come from a happy, intelligent, healthy global populous would greatly out-way the temporary loss of comfort and lifestyle.

@razique, now all we need to do is take the “lets change the world” and turn it into a “Here,we changed the world,sir!” .Seriously though, nice to see someone calling on the lazy preachers.

Razique (@razique)1 year, 6 months ago ago

@nosorozh, thanks. I think about that a lot. The question of the human responsibility is something that really matters to me. I like asking myself : “What is to be done?” I really think I can’t anymore blame the government for what it doesn’t want me to know, rather for what I don’t know ; the others for what they do, rather myself for what I’m not doing. That new perspective ensures a system of values I apply, actions I take into account and ideas I spread. I only see an “us”, rather than an idelogical schism.
