As the title says, my concerns about the world of today and what it's heading towards.
My concerns are not about nature, wars or poverty, why?
Well Nature has the amazin ability to adapt to everything, this is not an excuse to pollute everything but it's a way of thinking that Nature will pull through.
Wars? There has never been this few wars in the world, you can basically speak of a Pax-Americana (like the pax-romana, a time of peace controlled by a nation, at that time the roman empire and at this time the USA), even thoo we daily see people murdering etc, the world never has been peacefully like this.
Poverty, same as war, there has never been this few people starving, and this amount will go down and down in the future.

No, my concerns are nothing like these (even thoo I feel terrible about all the violence and poverty in the world).
No, what I am worrying about is hate, lately the only things I'm hearing from Media but also from the different forums I visit, is hate and intolerance.
Many examples, such as hate/intolerance against the Islam, against socialism, against Israel, against the USA., against almost everything in the world.

This concerns me, how can we make any progress if everything is blocked by people who hate the change or hate the ideas/ideology's of others.

I know I'm pogressive, I know that many call me a socialist, I've even been called a muslim lover.
Why? Because I think that no one should be opressed/hated in any form.

How can this hate be ended?
How do you convince others no to hate
I'm searching for these awnsers, and I hope some of you can help me.

Thank you for reading something that just popped up in my head, and I hope I can thank you too for contributing to a satifying awnser.

PS, also feel free to post your own concerns about the world of today/tomorrow.

Nature has dealt with far worse than anything we've thrown at it. If Mother Nature wanted us out of here, she'd have done it by now.

There wars going on right now mostly internal in nature. Some years back there were 30 wars going on a any give time small but still wars. The slaughter in Africa has not slowed down but out of sight out of mind. I real wished war was something that could be stopped but power hungry political leaders have most control on that.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I just do not want another Korea or Vietnam nor do I like politician playing god. I was very happy we did not go in into Iraq the first time. We where downsizing the army and most the equipment was trash. A long occupation would not have gone well for us. With that said i believe in wiping out an enemy especially one that can not be separated from the people.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It is called total war fair Sherman used very well in the south. Same in WW2 complete city where burned down if a population lets it political leaders start a war then there just as responsible for it. If we instill this attitude with in all people going to war will make the generals and politician think long and hard because they will have to cover there backs as well.----------------------------------------------------------------My attitude in this may seem barbaric to most but people need to be held responsibly for there government action. You will also notice my political stance are very much the same towards people in the U.S. we have to be held accountable for are government action, War finical what ever it is the buck stop with us the American citizen.-------------------------------------------- I am very very tired of victim status we all have in the U.S., victims in one way or another, I have to cope with brain trauma and PTSD every time I get up. Life is not easy and blaming somebody else is just sad, or in my book in America to me their a wast of skin. I resent my owe generation for passing the buck to there grandchildren. Just a bunch sorry ass individuals that took every-thing for granted.

Hate towards people that are different will always exist, a completely altruistic society will never exist. Nature works and survives due to competition, and man kind no different. If its not religion, then it will be nationality or something else. There is always conflict, the difference being we live in a global society now, as opposed to 30 or 50 years ago. When acts of violence occur around the world, the entire world hears about it, its on the news and on the internet. So conflict seems more rampant than before.

Hate will always be around as long as humans are, we just need to make sure it is known it is not tolerated. Only thing one can do.

I'm worried about the declining oil reserve/prices. We need alternative energy.

Then I'm worried about house prices.

Other than that, the human race will survive and adapt to future threats. Indomitable. That describes us humans well

Peak oil will start nasty wars and deplete the surplus population, hopefully before Methyl Hydride release due to global warming converts the sky to a nice toxic (to humans) green.

but yes. humanity will live one. chastened, impoverished but probably none the wiser.

Islam is hate base religion, they want to kill Jewish people if you change faith from Islam they want to kill you. Even though Muhammad had a twelve year old wife child rapist in my book. Your smart you can figure it out what I do power conversion from turbine to the AC then i can change it to DC for motors and back to AC for variable speed AC motors. Dam I just Dumb. So far most of the ideals are not practical using water not to bight or hydrogen they make great bomb, electric OK to a point but people do not understand battery technology is not there yet even when it gets there there plenty of pollution after the battery dead and motors have a lacquer that covers the winding that toxic. Electric motors need smooth roads as well having the amateur hit the winds is big trouble like run away cars to exploding batteries. all there real good for is city driving.

Canada really ought to start ramping up it's military. with Global warming opening up the arctic, we're about to become the front line in the upcoming resource wars.

I hope the Netherlands is working on dealing with the rising sea levels from climate change.

One of the main reasons hate exists because of our massive cultural and religious diversity.

Put simply Earth and us Humans are too diverse to get along or tolerate.

There are too many different cultures and different religions and different personal views.

All these cultures and religions and stuffs generally tend to be in direct confliction and violation of all the other ones.

This breeds disagreements and quirks which breeds hatred and intolerance.

So as long as such massive human diversity exists thus will hatred and intolerance. Its not the only cause of it, but its one of them.

The mass diversity directly causes the intolerance. Some cultures teach intolerance and hate of other cultures.

so if there was one trait we should all share it's tolerance for diversity? then any deviations wouldn't necessarily be a source of friction.

Way to much fiction reading, non fiction as the Quran is absolutely no tolerance for others. Well that book would have to be nuder not a bad Ideal. Most of the other religious text out there is not harmful to others.

That I cannot agree with. While I've made no secret of my distrust and dislike of some of the practices attributed to Islam. I've seen plenty of horrid passages in the Christian bible and plenty more people who would interpret those passages in harmful ways. And no one who has any knowledge of the workings of the IDF or Mossad can claim judaism is uniformly and exceptionally pacifist either quite the opposite.
