Isn't it ironic that many of those who profess to live in a state of Love
Hate the fact that the world doesn't share their view.
Living in a state of Love is incompatible with wanting all things to end just because they are not how you wish them to be. This is simply ones ego refusing to accept a flawed reality. Wishing for change is natural but change is always painful and involves destruction. Every life costs many other lives to sustain its existence, to love is to accept reality and changing things even in a tiny imperceptible way each day. To give up on humanity as a lost cause and accept that to end all things is the only solution is to give into hate and is the easy way to live.
This merely shows that Love and Hate co-exist together and are two sides of a coin, reliant upon each other to exist.
Either way it is the reality you choose that gives you the perception of the world you inhabit.

Well I'm not sure that ending the world would be the answer. But with that said, I do however believe that we need something catastrophic to happen that will effect most of the world's population. Examples: Alien invasion, Meteor, atomic bomb or what have you that may destroy an immense human population.
Although these scenarios are obviously unlikely....
But only then, I think would humans actually put their differences aside and come together to try to survive and keep living in peace. But then again, this could have quite the opposite effect and it would be every man for himself.
It's rather discouraging come to think about it.... Maybe an end to all things IS what this world needs. A sad truth?
as we know it
