Evolutionary! Let me know your thoughts and how you could help facilitate something like this.

Its time for a change. We all know this. We think it's time for a change to fix a financial system or prevent business from failing or to protect our country by whatever means necessary. No this is not the time for that. NOW is the time for a change on how we treat each other and how we think of each other. It is time for a spiritual change, a moral change, a change that really matters to our children and their children. We have to change or we doom them to pay for our irresponsibility and ignorance. I will not ask you to make this change for me or for your country. I ask you to do this for your family. That is all I can ask of you because I will do the same for mine EVERY SINGLE TIME! We don't need to change the world. The world got us this far but we have lost our way. We all seek the path of peace and prosperity BUT this cannot be achieved through violence or intimidation. This can only be achieved by UNDERSTANDING. Understanding that we cannot rely on people who lie for a living. We cannot rely on pretenders. It is clear we cannot rely on what we have been relying on. We must rely on each other. They do not want to help us. We've made it easy for them. I refuse to continue this any longer. I'm tired of being walked on, I'm tired of breaking my back to make a company richer while I struggle, I'm tired of it all. Aren't you? It is time for this change. We are watching the world fall to pieces day by day. I say we build our world NOW as we watch this old world crumbles beneath us. We CAN make it better. We just have to work together and believe. Think of what Humans have achieved in small groups throughout history. Everything we know now is because a brave group believed they could make a new way. Lets not let their efforts and sacrifices be in vain. All we have to do is try.

    Aug 11 2013: There's not a solitary idea, insight, or even an opinion put forward in this post. It's just one long, emotional felling expressed really really hard, and with lots of CAPS.

    It's not enough to want something, to WEALLY WEALLY want something. You still have to have some sort of intellectual plan with specific points or germane examples to make it happen.

      Aug 12 2013: I believe the emotional/spiritual change i spoke of is a solid and intellectual idea, even thought is not the theory of relativity. It is also something we need that would change the world. Is it dumb to help another with a hope they will help you one day? I don't believe it is. I think that would be genius because it would be like an eye for an eye except in a good way. Yeah me and my idealistic thoughts. Hear this first, without idealistic people we would not live how we live today. So I will be idealistic and I will always think we can improve and I will never give up that idea and will pass it on to whoever will listen.
      • Aug 15 2013: You believe the emotional is a solid and intellectual idea? So does my two-year-old grandson. Feeling something very strongly means nothing. It does not make it just, virtuous, or even sensible, only felt. I have come across people who believe all sorts of things, contradicting each other, each feeling their beliefs so very strongly. Didn't make any of them right or give any of them useful ways to get their goals accomplished.

          Aug 18 2013: You're the type of person that is always doubtful, it seems. And you didn't even quote me right but good try. I have a hopeful mentality, I believe there is a better tomorrow if we aim to achieve it. I believe that if we just wait we are going to follow people that have no concern for most of us. I will not follow people who do things I don't agree with like killing people, bombing civilians, lying to citizens of their country, promising things they never aimed to achieve, selling your opinion to corporations, take advantage of millions of people, ect. The list goes on and on and on. I won't agree with it so I will try to change it or die trying to change it. History has proven the way things are now was achieved by violence and war not cooperation. Where has the violence and war lead us... to more violence and war. You live with this every day and don't try to change it? So you find todays world virtuous, just, and sensible?
