All these things that are #ed up, they flow from originating thoughts, ideas, conceptions and viewpoints, and what makes them messed up is the degree
to which they are not in alignment with reality the way reality really is.
It makes no sense therefore, to be a cynic and a realist and to say simply this is just the way things are, and resigned, hope for the destruction of
the human sphere of influence, since that idea too, is unhelpful and generative, not of creative solutions to common problems, but merely contributes
to apathy bordoring on destructive nihilism, and it's as disgraceful of a viewpoint as the greed and ego-based, materialist worldview which is
causing all the problems.
No, we must dare to be different, and to think differently, about what is possible for the human being, and then do whatever we can, with whatever
resources, to have a positive impact, however big or small.
We must lead with our being and our thinking, and when you really think about it, the ONLY rational response to all that is irrational in the world
and destructive and regressive, and cynical and apathetic, is bright hope and eternal optimism. Anything less results in the apathy of a meaningless
and purposeless existence wherein the individual has no stake in a meaningful and participative solution driven outcome.
To be focused on the biggest problems is a good thing, but the possibility we are proclaiming in response, needs to be big enough to meet the
challenge, and the more screwed up everything is, the more problems there are to solve, and the greater the challenge, which in and of itself isn't
such a bad thing, as there's a lot of material to work with.
I don't mean to make you the op wrong personally, but your thinking is disasterous, not just for the world at large, but worst of all for you, a
valuable person here on this planet in this time, and well aware of the magnitude of the problem at hand.
I would suggest that you think about it some more, but with an open mind willing to take on a whole new and radically different viewpoint.
A viewpoint capable of bridging the gap between what is, and what ought to be, that is the challenge presented, and don't think that over the course
of your life, and that of your friends, and all your friends friends, that you cannot make a difference and have an impact.
As it sits, you are scaring me, that our future is being left in the hands of such young, cynical apathetic nihilists. Please change your thinking
into something else, for everyone's sake. The world needs you. Thank you.
