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?

    When we talk about settling the world's problems, we're barking up the wrong tree. The world is perfect. It's a mess. It has always been a mess. We are not going to change it. Our job is to straighten out our own lives.

        Apr 15 2014: So true. To know how to cooperate is the most colossal problem we face every day, I think. Wondering, we are so crowded but so separated from one another in a sense of co-existence and cooperation..
