      It begins with the self.  Unfortuneately, external influences may be the means of what will bring the people back to a humbled state.  Historically, when a civilization becomes lascivious, slothful and in a state of apathy it usually takes an occurrence to bring the walls of pride down.

      Also, it is imperative to heal the "family."  We must get back to the roots of family and stop continuing to desecrate it's importance and role as the basic unit of society.  The family is central to the Creator's plan for the destiny of all His children.  It's time to bring ourselves into a state of repentance and align ourselves in His favor.

      It's a long road but it begins with the self.  Selfless service toward all mankind is among the most humbling experiences and helps to heal the world as well.

      I would suggest we solve the energy industry and who controls it.  Money is traded for oil on so many levels and the false supply crisis' that are thrust upon us every few years just feeds the fear and desparate measures that are enacted.

      If we could come up with a source of clean renewable energy everyone could afford there would be little outside interest in it from the super powers to invade and dominate other oil producing countries.

        That would be excellent, no more wars over energy resources and if the energy were able to replace oil, it would have the added bonus of many terrorists losing their funding.

    Few people will welcome this idea I propose. But it's the only way to cure all the political and social ills. And that is to give total control to corporations.
       Actually it's heading in that direction anyway. China is moving into Africa. They intend to "corporatize" the continent with their business methods and ideology. Not good. But the plus side is that most Africans -- normally used to extreme poverty -- will have jobs and stability.
       Wal-Mart is globalizing and in some areas is the only game in town. They plan on establishing a strong presence in impoverished areas like India and Bangladesh where labor is cheap. Many people don't like Wal-Mart. But who else can provide jobs and a better life to the desperate masses?
       Other corporations "too big to fail" did so because of internal failings. But consider this a warmup to the real thing: A corporation that is an entity unto itself with no accountability except to its internal machinations. However, it also provides jobs, food, housing, healthcare, and peace to the multitudes.
       Mass migrations are permeating every corner of the globe. The hideously poor are saying "Enough!" and are seeking some semblance of normalcy in developed countries. But nations are incapable of handling the influx of millions of impoverished.
       Governments have also demonstrated they can't eradicate poverty, crime, corruption, and death by starvation. They've had thousands of years to do so. So let the megacorporations have at it.
       After that it's a one-world government and eventual annihilation.

      Mega corporations really perpetuate poverty. The service they render does not equal the devastation they create in economies, communities and families. Walmart has gone into smaller areas, and put mom and pop businesses out of business and they have to go work for Walmart. Then when Walmart determines the area won't support the profit margins they require, they pull out of town, leaving a derelict building, a devastated economy and jobless families.

      While they may provide jobs, they also abuse and use the poor. It's not a win/win situation. It's corporate greed preying on the poor. Have you heard about "peasant policies?" Look it up. Walmart and corporations like them take out life insurance policies of sometimes a million dollars or more based on the employee's health. In more than one case, the corporation has received over a million dollars in payout upon the death of the employee, still leaving the grieving family impoverished. They DO NOT help the family. The family is not entitled to any of the pay out on such policies.

      I believe that when we are personally so sick of the greed, lust and battling of the world, when we want peace more than we want any of these things, we will finally be able to have it. But as goldenpath said, it's in individual thing that begins with self, then family, then society. It's a very slow awareness and consciousness that takes time for people to develop and embrace for their selves.

        And how many eons have we been in existence, and how many eons more will it take for us to realize this "slow awareness." I contend it will never happen. We have within us a genetic flaw that will never be overcome. There's an upside and a downside to everything. In more realistic terms, the only way to eradicate global wars and self-interest (at the expense of others) is for a single entity to control and dominate. Like Obama's vision of big government, this entity would provide for all, eliminate wars and famine, but also control every aspect of our lives. It's either/or. You want heaven on earth it won't happen.

          Control and dominate????
          Not for me. I dare say not for anyone. How many people have ever loved an oppressive organization, political structure or religion? Even if such a utopian government started out that way it would soon find itself incredibly corrupt just as our own US government, founded on principles of freedom, has become. There is no guarantee that such a world government would actually serve the planet. We are too vulnerable to our egos and greed for it not to evolve into another monster, despite the inspirational speeches of people like Obama, and others.

          I've had a gut full of such control and domination lfrom false religions and bad political ideologies. Stalin and Hitler come to mind. Jim Jones, also. Many others, too. Even corrupt city hall.

          You may be exactly right about it taking eons for man to "evolve" to such a level, or possibly never achieving it. I have no idea, but taking away people's rights has never been considered a good thing, and that's where a world government is headed, I believe. It's too much power and too much temptation.

          Walmart and mega corporations are just a 21st century of medieval serfs and lords arrangement. I'm not for it.

          I don't subscribe to the idea of a utopian government because although we may think we are ready to live in such an arrangement, we have proven to ourselves over and over we are not mature enough, nor advanced enough to have such a universal outlook. (How many religions and societies have attempted this and failed? --All who have attempted.) But neither can I subscribe to nor support mega corporations who prey on others.

          So where we are at, cosmically, is exactly where we are supposed to be, and it's up to us individually to make the difference.

          I think that's the fundamental message of all the enlightened teachers such as Buddha, Christ, etc.

            I agree with you. But the question is: How will warring (and human suffering) stop. I contend that we will have to sacrifice individual freedoms for the sake of global peace.

      I agree with foreignpress's megacorporation to some extent and agree with you to some extent too. In my opinion I am thinking that the religious belief system of the world needs healing, religion is beautiful....it's so good to trust and hope in God but the fanatics among us needs to let go a bit. We are all beginning to overdo it if lives have to be maimed and wasted in the name of it. I am wishing so much we can bring back that warless time when all was peaceful. I guess it should start with putting a stop to the present wars and like sparhawke said the leaders of the world need to come together and work for peace, enough blood have been shed, it really shouldn't continue. If the heads of the warring parties agree that it is enough, they can convince the soldiers, the fanatics that bomb others to stop. It's high time it all stopped you know.

    Throw all the world leaders who start them into a room together and let them settle their differences mano a' mano.

    It is a lot easier to order someone to kill if you are not doing it yourself, all leaders really want is power at any cost, unless it involves their own personal blood.

    No idea that goes backward to what we tried before is going to work, already proved it or it would have worked.

    The idea will be a new idea - maybe simply that we change the system so that money is not god - value coming from being some kind of use to society.  The old, redundant, vicious, self-centred, me me me thinking changed to encompass the idea that we are nothing alone.

    Being here in China is illuminating - there may be many things wrong with the system, these are being constantly pointed out, and many made up by stupid people to go with the actual problems.  What is most noticeable is that with their particular history of social change the general idea that people are important is much stronger than I ever saw anywhere in the west.  The fusion of traditional humanity with a strong entrepeneurial ethic produces many of the good things in the new cultural values that are sweeping through China.  This way of thinking provides the real opposition to the corruption that is starting to be tackled now.

      Ok, now we are back to Bizarro Superman World. That is exactly the opposite of what the history of China suggests. You are so deeply afflicted with "Everything Here is Perfect!"  Waiguoren Syndrome that you cannot even see the irrationality of what you are saying.

        China man I agree that there must be something your society and government are doing right that is giving people such strong entreprenurial spirit  that have all and sundry industrious. I admire that so much about China but you know what the west also have that general idea that people are important. That also is among the things I admire about the west.
                Ivorwen some sense of brotherhood may come from network marketing but can that really heal our world right now, I agree with Sab Oh, the one world, one government that Mr. Origin proposed may be disaster when it comes to "who will lead our world", so many of us are too power drunk to be followers.
               Is there something that can be done to put a stop to the unrest in many parts of the world right now? Is there a way we here can begin effort towards that change. As we all know the wars are religious based, I am thinking that just as world leaders meet and discuss issues that affect the world like global warming so is there an urgent need for a discussion on world peace and religious tolerance, where every leader should be asked to work on whatever teaching and education that is making people grow up not tolerating others of different religions. This is not just about the wars in Iraq ,afghanistan, so many people in other parts of the world experience religious wars. I am very ashamed at the one in the links below that take place in my country because these are people already undergoing hardship and instead of concentrating on improving their condition, they are being overtaken by fanaticism. I read it , shed tears helplessly and keep wishing there is something I can do to make people stop. There should be some awareness campaign globally that one need not kill in the name of religion but the present wars should be stopped first. I know the West hurt deeply over 9/11 but things have snowballed and are getting out of hand,so many people have died, its time to broker peace.If a peace talk with the likes of bin laden and others will bring peace, it should be given a go.Its all making the world more sick than even global warming is doing. How do we make it stop? How do we make it stop?

    In my opinion, there will always be wars in the world till humanity exists. There will be no end to wars as the affected one always plans to avenge his defeat.

    Or, if there should be no further war, a large-scale war, involving every country must come and the end should be the destruction of humanity. There should be all-round destruction. Every single human being should be affected by that war. Then, no one will dare to think of another war!

    Those who are responsible for keeping the country out of war if they can't find a better solution then going to war I sugest taking a portion of their personal income for as long as the war/conflict is going on.
