    Good answer. The other answers look at the bigger picture but your answer is closer to what needs to be dealt with NOW. Unfortunately, music and television promote the 'misuse' of sex and music and television is more popular than ever! Thanks!

    I have to agree with you. Greed is the source of most issues in this world - whether it is internal issues (not finding hapiness even though you have the necessary) or external issues (destroying the Earth). The two are of course related.

    although you have received one negative, I do tend to agree with that sentiment as that is one of the greatest problems we face today, e.g. religions, nations, goverments and their people etc.

    Yes, I completely agree. Not to mention the many terrible decisions made by that same republic in the last 40-50 years or more!

    Who do you mean when you mention the gassing? Sorry, my mind is coming up with a few possibilities here.

    Yes, Eugene. Simply put, it is our minds when misused, that become our greatest weakness and unfortunately our worldwide obsession with material things and reliance upon ego mean it is often misused. Thanks! Have a great day! :)
