ruthless and predatory? What are the remedies that YOU would suggest to make Western society more evolved and less predatory?
First of all, do you really think it is just western societies that are "ruthless and predatory"?
Think about history before asking this question.
And after thinking about history and if your answer remains "yes", then how do you explain Japan in China and Korea prior to World War II? North Korea since about 1952? Contemporary Russia?
How do you explain thousands of years of history of western and non-western societies who have engaged in ruthless and predatory conduct?
I understand what you are stating. Yes, there are societies in Asia and Africa that are totally ruthless in their policies. However, I am only addressing Western or rather Westernized societies at the moment. It seems that postmodern Western and Westernized societies are becoming highly predatory and ruthless towards the more vulnerable segments of the population instead of evolving.
I cannot name 20 ways but I notice that one may be in the way the news media presents its headlines, preferring stories where they can feature terms like 'shocking', 'horror', 'tragic', 'terror', 'awful', and the like. I can offer no remedies except that maybe we should all try to accentuate the positive when we can. Have a nice day.
I could list what's wrong with society, but that would take a week or more and I don't have the time.
I suggest meditate or pray to God for guidance on how to become better people.
That would seem typical of believers, never deal with the problems of society and instead, sit around and pray watching as everything gets worse.
Why pray? We all know the answers already ("that would take a week or more") and anything we get from prayer is going to come from within us anyway.
Because I think praying helps. I think God makes us better people, when we let him. He helps us see our faults, so that we can work on changing it.
Not from reading the Bible. Not from the Koran. From inside. Our conscious is from God, that is what I believe.
On the other hand, you are right too. I think knowing what is right and wrong is inherent. (So it "comes from within us)
You give a man a fish, he eats for a day.
You teach a man religion, he prays for fish and ends up starving to death!

I was just reading a post on another thread about the 10 commandments and the subject of adultery was raised. The point was that the apparent imbalance between the sexes regarding the law was that women had a lower status in the Hebrew culture. Fair enough. However this raises the issue that the...
