Good Topic, imo Baked..... ;-) And you're right! Idealism is gone!!
The root for thought: Absent for the most part.
"Idealism is the philosophical theory that maintains that the ultimate nature of reality is based on mind or ideas. It holds that the so-called
external or "real world" is inseparable from mind, consciousness, or perception."
I want to say that idealism is what "inspires" the human mind to take an approach to something, whether it affects their life or not.
I think complacency is some-what of a factor. People feel "self-satisfied" with themselves, what they care about in life.... and their
surroundings, so the (false) state of comfort perhaps causes need for neglection.
We've neglected values, as a society.
People are more out for "themselves" than ever.
But I don't blame the people. People's lives are shaped from experience.
It's the structure itself, that's shaping peopple's lives.
It's INDOCTRINATED! Our education system's a joke!
We are taught how to think!
Hardly at all is free thought accepted, and practiced..say...in Universities, etc. We're like hamsters in a wheel.
Well, you mentioned crime. Good point. Crime, imo, is the result of POVERTY and lack of social structure!! Take a look at (violent) crime rates in US
opposed to other countries.....even 3rd world! Off the charts!
I think New Orleans is like 3rd worse in the WORLD right now......
Look at how Detroit became Murder Capital......Aside from the riots, and racism, and crack epidemic when those thousands of jobs disappeared, crime
skyrocketed....people were poor...and ghettos were spawned.
This goes for every major US city. Cleveland right now is suffering with one of the highest un-employmwent rates in America. Chances are, Cleveland
will have some serious crime spikes in the next few years 2 come.
This is a result of social structure. But there is a more sinister reason 4 this, imo. In other words, the root of the problem goes much, much
Look at how our ghettos are riddled with sanctions from the oppressors.
Sub-Divide and Conquer. This is a strategy not only used by military..
They want ghettos! They want crime! They want Attica!
It just gives more cause to their sininster plan.
Complete control over society.
I think the orchestrators of the world and their sininster plot for world-governance see that if that if it's complete chaos they create, especially
in the economy, then in the end the people will turn to them as a SAVIOR!
It's kinda like wars.....the best ones are the ones you don't fight.
So they figure, let the bewildered fight each other, then in the end amidst the economy, chaos, crime and POVERTY they will shine as a savior to the
people. Sadly, it will ensalve people, not provide better living standards.
I think the US is the biggest obstacle to their dominance, only because we are the world's nation of freedom. But more and more......these freedoms
are gone. Pretty soon we can't even protest anymore...which is our right in the First Amendment, as well as FREE SPEECH! These are simple liberties
that creates "idealism" and positive progression in society.
However, it seems like we are sub-divided by class in this country.
Idealism 4 Solutions????
Well, start in the community. If we invested more time in the community, then we can start by "helping each other" opposed to relying
something/some1 helping us!!
I'm not talknig about welfare, and government programs which over time have proven to be failures....I'm talking about breaking bread with your
It takes the community to clean up crime. Not the Justice Dept.
The other thing........self education. People MUST have a sense of urgency....more interest of what's going on around them, and how it's affecting
them and their families.
The other......is start with kids. Allow for them to have free thought of their own. If we fail, they might prevail.
