Society is at a vital point in history, a point that can and will effect the future of our country and all of humanity.

I ask this question to friends on facebook and twitter, but I only get likes or favorites and it annoys the # out of me. I don't want your approval of the question I am asking, I want their honest opinion.

I feel like this is the best place to do it, because we all know it needs to happen.

So please ATS help me find the best answer to the question





What can WE do to change society together??

I guess LOVE would be the answer to your question. Keep showing your love for the people in your society ... no mather what.
And: do not accept any fear in your life.
Fear is the darkside (listen to Yoda) my friend.
And only love can conquer hate (Marvin Gaye).
Hence: express your love and things will change.

I have to agree and disagree with you there if I may.

I am all up for love but fear is important. Fear of bieng hit by a car means I am carefull crossing the road.

Fear of hurting someone means I think about how my words or actions may affect someone.

It's funny that this was at the top of the recent posts...as i had just told the clerk at the store a few minutes ago that if we wanted we could change the world by uniting our thought forces as one. I think the best thing that we can do is examine our own wills and make sure we are not being motivated by selfishness and that we truly desire whatever is best ( even if we don't know what that is ). After we have done this and feel satisfied that we desire what's best ( for everyone ) we should pray that... all who are against what is right and best ( for everyone ) should be destroyed or incapacitated so that they will no longer hinder the advancement and progress of humanity. Pray hearnestly that God/The Universal Powers will come against all that would come against us and keep our own hearts and desires pure so that we are not destroyed with them.

I think its about realizing that we can all effect the world, but you should rephrase this post when you can post to the right forums, so we can really chat about it. Welcome!

Welcome to the zoo . Unlike some of the monkeys that throw feces some of us will throw vids to listen too . What you take from it is a lesson and what you do with it will make a difference despite the feeling that we need a army .We are the army and they are very afraid and know it .

I don't believe society can be changed in the way you want to change it.

Changing yourself is a good start, but after a certain point you have to figure out how to replicate the lessons you've learned for others so that you can also induce change in them. Without becoming a transformer that can create a magnetic field to induce an electric current in another being, your change ends with you.

Even if you become proactive in your own life and modify things on a very local level, it is very unlikely that you will ever inspire the kind of replication among others that is necessary to truly change the world.

Historically, men have changed the world intentionally through organized societies. Unfortunately, this leads to the rise of new tyranny in almost every case.

Today, I think, with the power of decentralized technology, we could create an app which people could download to their phones that would connect them to one another and enable them to coordinate their efforts without bending to the will of centralized authority. Look up the heterarchic structure of decentralized communication networks. I think we can replicate this as a new form of human association, a new power structure which enables us to maintain our independence without annihilating our own potential for effectiveness in this world.

It's going to take a divine intervention.

If we were able to fix things, it would have happened by now.

Welcome to ATS BTW...

Deposing tyrants is another matter, but must be done through prayer.

God has an answer to the tyranny around us. That answer is to turn to the one that can help.

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

originally posted by: EnochWasRight
We all have four things to do. Each of us have this responsibility. If we proceed down this path, our land will be healed and our sins forgiven. God will restore the temple.

1) Humble ourselves before God and see his authority in our world.

2) Pray

3) Seek his face. This involves searching and knocking on the WORD.

4) Turn from our wickedness in the land. This includes anything that takes rather than gives. If we reverse our polarity and start giving and suffering forward for others, then God will answer our requests in prayer.

When a nation turns on its last vestiges of faith, it is doomed to fall by the tyranny it creates. The US is on the path to this tyranny.

Just made an account to reply to this thread. I in my own opinion think that the intent of ones action affect the actions of others as well as the one doing the thinking.

So one or all would have to truly have the intent to better this world putting aside greed and personal gain.

What I'm getting at, to save every one a wall of text is sadly I think society as a whole has a bit of long road ahead before it changes for the better. Now don't get me wrong society is always evolving, mutating if you will and good or bad things may come of this. But it's a while to go until we have a paradise on earth which BTW is most certainly attainable, just not yet

Well, I agree with you 2.

You are right.
Basic fear is your friend. That's human instinct.
