The problem is that the animal within us cannot be tamed if we dont think we have it in us ..one would first have to admit that there is an animal within us in order to change it .....we all think that we dont need to change ...the other guy is the one that needs changing .....as long as we see it this way ...it wont change ..
I always loved the words to The Man in the Mirror .
If you want to make the world a better place take a look at yourself and make that change ....(instead of looking at others to make a change we need to be the ones to make the change in ourselves first ) ....
Another thing is if people actually looked past the way someone dresses ...how clean or dirty they are how they stand walk talk or whatever etc ...and looks at the person themselves ...I bet we would all get along better ................

Service to others keeps lousy others alive longer than necessary.
Everything that your post advocates is cheap lame false feel-good socially acceptable trivial fine-fine platitudes that no one (that I have ever observed) actually practices in their real life...(like people who may advocate open immigration tend not to be found with eighty-seven strangers sharing their houses, not so much).
Do people in your milieu actually encourage you when you advocate these sentiments? I can't imagine it, unless you all take turns popping off and then giving each other attaboys. Oh, I guess I can imagine it, but no fun, for sure... like a musical about recycling and dental hygiene narrated by those cartoon Biblical vegetables..."GOOD FOR YOU", uh-huh...
