If you could only pick 2 words to describe the biggest single thing that is holding mankind back from bettering our quality of life, what would they be?

My thoughts are:

Self Serving

How about one word: Ego. It is the Ego that causes us to desire power over another, the Ego that causes us to think about our own benefits first and foremost and the Ego which we are slaves to because of the disharmony it creates with the balance of the whole.

Now don't get me wrong as you and I would not exist as individual entities without Ego. However that was not the question. The question was the problem with humanity as a whole...not the problem with the individual.

Just wanted to clarify.

Ignorance and Lazy.

Most of us are too ignorant to see what we are really doing to the planet and what our inevitable future is, and of those who do realize, a high percent of them are to lazy to do anything about it.

Incessant Thinking.

Many think that thought is the answer to all our problems, when in reality it is the problem.

I believe the two words that best sum up the problems facing humans are;

chaos and harmony

Try to find one and you will end up finding the other.
