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 16 2013: We still missing to understand what kind of "change" are we talking about...
      Is it Social change? Moral change?, Ecology change? Belief system change? Technology change?
      In any case, if we are discussing Social and Moral changes, we must remember there have been and still are incredible persons giving and dedicating their life on behalf of Human Enhancement.
      I suppose the OP suggests a higher degree of Humans is expected to rise, promoting changes and bringing life on this world to a new level of understanding, tolerance, freedom and happiness.

      Is it any other way?

        Aug 18 2013: " It is time for a spiritual change, a moral change, a change that really matters to our children and their children." This is really an overall change of almost everything which is what will be necessary to make this change stick.

      Aug 18 2013: I think that if everyone had a helping mentality it could catch on. It seems unlikely that my generation could accomplish this but teaching the next generation how to think and act like this is much more likely.
      And yes Carolyn I love my brain and the things it comes up with.

        Aug 18 2013: Hey Jah:
        Whether is on topic or not, if find something VERY interesting in your last paragraph...
        "I love my brain and the things it comes up with."....
        This brings up a question I make to many folks:

        Who is the "I" loving the brain?
        Is it the brain saying it "owns and loves himself"?

        I strongly think, no matter being repressed, we are NOT the brain or product of it's activity. You are right. The brain is ours!

        We have a brain..... Who are "we"?

        Interesting subject for a new conversation indeed!

          Aug 19 2013: I believe I is my soul. My body is just a vessel. I'm a big believer in reincarnation too. A little short on time right now or I would fill this box Mike. What are your thoughts on the soul?

        Aug 19 2013: Of course! We are all souls!
        I might have different ideas on the subject of soul, life, recurrence, reincarnation, the beyond, life-after-death.
        But we certainly are of a Spiritual Nature.
        Now: The subject of this topic translate into: Should ideas, theories, communications or anything relative to the Soul and Spirit be subject to restrictions, ridicule, banning and persecution?

        Science (thanks God not all, neither all scientists) are making strong efforts to destroy the right to openly discuss the subject. They might find "proof" of the ideas being "dangerous" and "harmful".
        Once proven, there will be herds of science believers or followers ready for combat!
        The new Inquisition might be looking at us!
        A plain return to the pagan pre-Christ Roman eras or am inversion of the Spanish Inquisition which wanted to force Galileo into accepting the earth was flat as a tortilla!
        The same irrationality is exhibited today in many pseudo-intellectual, pseudo-rational circles trying to control what people think and what people believe!
