DRAFT: Humanity needs a Revolution

<p>It is Humanity themselves that should make the choices which road they want to follow... Because basically it is 99% against 1% (this Elite owns 50% of the world &amp; thinks 500 million people on this Earth is enough...and perhaps they are right)... if Humans stay Greedy Consumers... everything will sooner or later will come to a screeching halt... and Nature will settle the score...</p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>Or they can try to change their behaviour and become a bit smarter &amp; intelligent... a bit nicer &amp; more responsible... to their surrounding World &amp; Environment... Humans have great Technology &amp; Capacaties and they&#8217;ve used it for their Own destruction till this very moment...Perhaps that was meant to be... Nature is Primitive: Survival of the Fittest... the Weak Ones Die or get Eaten... Their Leadership is Bunch of Suicidal Psychopathic Lemmings...</p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>I am responsible for my own actions... not for the actions and behaviour of others... Humanity needs a Revolution... either Bloody or Non-Violent...maybe the most in personal thinking, behaviour &amp; perception To turn things for the better...We&#8217;ll see...</p>

Yes, they need a return to virtue.  But only those who have and strive for it will appreciate virtue.  The vast majority on WB will not.

Merijin. (nice name)
We live in very uncertain times. I understand your fear. I too look at the world, and see only madness. We definitely have lost our way.
But where I live in Thailand, people still care about each other. And there is hope for the world. Look how people from around the world, and from all walks of life came together to save 13 boys trapped in a cave here. Working together, each contributing his expertise, they pulled off a miracle. All rescued, alive and well.
It seems the temperament now, is to dwell on the negative, even turning positive actions into negative by finding minute discrepancies and making them prominent. North Korea is a case in point. They stopped nuclear testing, stopped firing missiles over Japan, stopped threatening the world. And what does the media dwell on? How slow the process is going, and what has not changed yet, like human rights.
All I can suggest, is that you look for ways to help someone where you are. I believe a root cause of the negative madness we live in is that we have lost the ability to see others as individuals. We all have faults, and when you see only groups of people(Trump voters) it is easy to accumulate those faults and attribute the faults to everyone in the group.(A basket of deplorable's)
That is polarization. My group is good, and your group is bad! What is good in both groups gets ignored and compromise is out of the question.
So I hope you find the inner strength Merijin, to look for the good that is in all people. You will be amazed how the world will appear to be a much better place. Don't try to change the other guy, change yourself!

P.S. It doesn't have to be done en mass, revolution as you suggest. Each of us can be a little bit kinder to the other guy. A mighty river, begins with a single drop of rain!
Unfortunately, I don't practice what I preach! I am too jaded and combative to care about the other guy. But I am guessing that you are young, and still have time to change.

Merijin - I completely agree. Somehow we have to stop this mad mantra of growth and get back to sustainability. This whole system is geared to putting more wealth in the pockets of the wealthy. We need to stop this gross inequality, reduce our numbers to around 4 Billion and stop this ransacking of nature.
The system is run for selfishness and greed.

You can always be counted on for ridiculous progressive fantasy.
So you want to stop growth. Do you know where the brake is.LOL
So you want to stop inequality. How do you propose to make the Genius and the idiot the same?
So you want to reduce the population to 4 billion. The last I saw, it is around 9 billion. Mass slaughter, or nuclear war? What is your plan?

There are many good things happening, largely in the underdeveloped world. The problem is that progress happens every day, at a slow but compounding rate.  It doesnt make the news, but it is there if you look for it.
Things like infant mortality, women dying during childbirth, percentage of underweight children, access to medical care, number of people living in extreme poverty, literacy.  These things have all greatly improved over the past few decades.
The world birth rate has fallen by half since 1950, it is projected to fall by 30% from the current rate, in another 25 years.
Number of people dying in wars and by disease have decreased, both in numerical terms, and especially as a percentage of the world population. 
It has never been a perfect world, and it surely isnt now.
