With all due respect, your path in life is your choice.
You can surround yourself with people with similar objectives and you will see that there are many people trying to do good.
While there is no shortage of people with bad intentions, the inverse is certainly true. I particularly don't see the benefit of worrying about other peoples intentions, you and I cannot control them.
I feel like just throwing your hands up in the air and giving up because "everyone is ignorant and selfish" is just a cop out.
...instead of the masses doing what they can to help each other, they spend every waking moment consumed by greed, a monetary and class system, steeped in manure, where all we are is what we own.

As I wonder through this life, on the way to what I hope is another destination, I am forced to reckon with the one I have now, here, on Earth. This tiny insignificant rock that has the audacity to think it could be the only planet in the entire Universe that is inhabited by intelligent life, only, every where I look, so many insist on showing a lack of intelligence.
What is deemed important is ridiculous to me, instead of the masses doing what they can to help each other, they spend every waking moment consumed by greed, a monetary and class system, steeped in manure, where all we are is what we own.
I know there are those out there that agree with me. Shouldn't we be doing more to help those in need? Should there be a single person on this planet that is hungry? Homeless? Without basic necessities? The wealthy get wealthier and the poor get poorer, does that seem just? All these religious organizations that take donations, governments that tax us, spending trillions of dollars to go to Mars, why isn't there more being done to help those that really need help?
How can you look at yourself in the mirror everyday with a smile on your face when the entire world is in decay.
