WHEN YOU SEE A BIG MAN-MADE PROBLEM ARE YOU FALLING ASLEEP, FEELING HELPLESS?

Colossal problems - we feel very helpless even when we suffer because of theses problems. However, why is it so hard for a single person to figure out what to do against madness, violations, mindless industries, commonly vicious "healthcare", poor useless education?

Why do we prefer to stay within brainless crowds doing Wrong, rather than do something different, making our human world a little better.

Can you share with your own thoughts?

  • Apr 15 2014: It is about Powerless vs Powerful. Its like you on one side and the whole world on other side . If you will stand up then the common cliche which you will often hear is :

    1) Change yourself
    2) Its EGO
    3) Who appointed you the leader of the masses
    4) Why don't you think of yourself first

    To bring a change against the already established rules and convention , POWER is required .
