Star and Flag because I totally agree with the OP!!
It's sounds crazy but I was just thinking about this exact same topic. And I was thinking to myself I wonder how best I can help to make the world a
better place. Then I decided to go on ATS to see what the some of the latest threads were, and I saw this! And I thought "How uncanny is that?" lol.
Yeah I know it sounds crazy.
But I totally understand where you're coming from. I want the best for everybody too. I truly believe that if we want to make the world a better
place, we can.
The problem is, I think so many people are disillusioned with what's going on in the world today, that it doesn't even make sense to try. There's
so much disappointment, hurt and suffering. And it can leave you thinking why should I bother, it's not worth it, it's not going to change anything.
But you know, it does. Even just a small act of kindness does wonders. The only way people are going to want to change, is to see the actual change of
others. Just because it doesn't seem realistic doesn't mean we still can't dream and work toward making the world a better place. IMO, the only way
it can be realistic is we try. How can it be realistic if no one ever even tries to get there.
And, I'm just thinking aloud here, maybe more change could've happened before if we hadn't told people it's unrealistic. Maybe just by saying to
not worry about it, it's not possible, we're actually making it impossible. For a dream to become reality, you have to believe in it.
Maybe I'm being naive, but I don't really care . I'd rather believe that we can work to make the world a better place, than not.
I believe we all have the power to make the world a better place. Maybe not all at once, but if it at least one person isn't willing to let things be
the way they are, then surely there will be others, right?
Just another thought, it seems these days, like in the mainstream, that people who have dreams are laughed at because it seems unrealistic and
unreasonable. It seems like the whole idea of having a dream and being optimistic has been put down and made to seem stupid. I don't know but, maybe
that is another conspiracy? Lol, this is a conspiracy website, so don't laugh .
But it just seems to me, that, especially in Hollywood like the movies they make, there's an increasing pessimistic outlook. Maybe that's just me
noticing it? Because I've noticed that people seem to laugh more at the people and the movies that are about following your dreams and never giving
I know life isn't fair and there's no use in sugar coating things. But, it doesn't mean we should shoot down the people who are willing to try?
Sure it's good to give advice about being realistic and what to expect, but to tell someone it's stupid to even think about hoping? Or to laugh at
them? I honestly believe that's just wrong. But it just seems like it's happening more in Hollywood these days and mainstream society. Although it
happened a lot before as well. It's as if society is reverting back to the way it was before the 60's
And you know, I've been depressed, like really depressed before, but I've found that the best way to look at things is optimistically. And
it's just as if there are all these movies and music about being pessimistic and just you know, like "stuff" happens whatever get on with it. I
don't know lol, like I said, maybe it's just me that's noticing this, eh..
