I think the young have the answer to our political problems, our religious problems and our social problems, If they would change their attitudes and focus.
Let's see- problems
(a) poverty - solution written
(b) homelessness - initiative active
(c) religious folk- blindful to their own actions
(d) educated elites run world- not enough awareness
(e) not enough people understand life- written about
(f) too many misconceptions believed by others- written about
(g) world leaders and business leaders deceitful about Peace- written about
(h) ideology to gain wisdom- written about
(i) how to change the world- written about
(j) politician lies- written about
(k) power of money- written about
(l) how best to use greed- written about
(m) chosen ignorance or lack of knowledge- written about
World problems are created by the people who lack understanding.
Are you a young persons?
I think that Young people have thought that since the beginning of time.
But by the time that they are old enough to have attained the power to do something about life's issues they have changed their minds.
And things stay the same.
No offence intended; life just seems to be that way.
Well, if they have to "change their attitudes and focus", then they don't have the answer, as you suggested.
I am inclined to believe a two year old has all the answers. The amazing thing, their answers have zero to do with adult questions, adult desires, adult beliefs, adult selves. By the time most children are 4 or 5 years into life on this planet, they will be swallowed up in adult information, problems, etc. Sad, because they do have the answers and are going to be forced to forget those answers to satisfy an massive adult lack of memory.
Perhaps we should better observe children FOR the answers.
ITS ALL ABOUT CHANGING ATTITUDES AND FOCUS!!!!
There is a certain truth to "you can create your own reality" and "the happiness you find in life is equal to the happiness you spread around".
A change of focus is what people need. Do not self help programs all say this?
If some people would stop running around flogging the same old horse and trying to get a different effect, which is truly insane... how about dropping the horse altogether and create a completely different agenda of things to do.
Life is not that complicated but the power of sin is very powerful indeed.. not to mention addictions are hard to overcome.
God is needed depending on what the person is doing or hopes to achieve.
The young develop according to their environments.
There's an old saying: "He's a chip off the old block."
Dumb parents raise dumb kids!
Monotheists are the "dumbest" of 'em all!
Well for God's sake, they'd have to take the time to learn responsibility and take all their piercings out, learn to write (or speak) a grammatically correct "memo" and maybe, just maybe learn to do their own damn laundry....till then. Sorry bout it, we elders are all we have.
When you get older, if you do make it, you'll find at age 30-35 and older that the world is not the place you thought it to be and you'll start acquiring wisdom, unless you're just dumb or whatever.
All my friends are older and the one I learned the MOST from is 53, and boy am I freaking glad I hung around him
If our young people solve the world's problems...they'll be the first!
The key is not "young" people! It's people uniting in problem solving...not fighting against each other! Of course, this is a tough one...because everyone is "right" and the other side is always "wrong"! Thus...nothing ever truly gets solved on any real issue!
Mankind is so fragmented in so many ways that it can never come together as a unit working in concert for the betterment of all.
Within the next 50 yrs, human population will increase to about 10 billion.
That fragmentation can only become many times more dangerous than it is today.
WE are headed for a major calamity.
