Is it human history at large? Wars and scars? Every own selfish wills and decicions? Or is it the
coincidences? Can you really ask this question without getting stomped on? I am not going into the details or personal opinions or feelings. Just want to put it as large as possible without pointing out me or you or anyone. Want this topic to be clean and no flaming. What do you think about it? I know many have this thought in mind. For me I just think humans cannot adapt themselves. Only let the feelings or the rules that follow. It is safe to say: ''the other says it so that is why it is like this.'' or ''they do it so why cannot I do it? It is unfair'' I rather think without time or history. Would it be different if history evolved in a different way? Or would we still start hating instead of loving? I dunno how long this world can keep on living but I hope it can as long as possible. Humans are priceless. Every single being with consciousness. Might sound like I am praising anyone but I am not praising OR stomping. Everyone was born with a light and dark side I believe. So why can some people deal with it while others cannot? Must be complicated. Things I might not know and glad I have not been in. Every seconds of my life is valuable since I face me and this one life before I leave. Sounds like I am being a stereotype and such but I am not a disorder or a book. I am me a person, human being with wish of a life like everyone else that has the will and hope to reach out for something.

The questions goes. Is there any main details of why this world has become like this?


EDIT: I know no one have answers to this and it is not necessary either. It is just sad to see things like this. I hoped I could do something which I cannot. Can I set an example maybe? Something that people will remember? I hope so. Now I am just going selfish and help myself with my love in the future...
You have my gratitidue for responding here. Got something to think on. On the road I might find that answer. If not today maybe tomorrow. Thank You.

It's because everyone blames capitalism for making them poorer when it's helping them.
When hunger rates are going down in X country but not Y country it's the end of the world.
And at any rate, every generation says theirs is the worst.
Everyone says the world couldn't get any worse if it tried.
Well, go take a look in the history books and get back to me.
Shit's tough now, sure. But shit was a hell of a lot tougher way back when.

Humans are the problems All of us. The animals. Birds, cats, dogs and every animal would have much better on this earth if it wasn't for us humans. Survival of the fittest egoism and such.................
People say we help animals that are in danger but yeah we pushed them there in the first place so I am not saying we should not live. We deserve it like everything else on this planet. It is just that I like to have that in mind when being too selfish and in my own thoughts. Forgets that all the time. it's been a while since I thought about that. Good thing.

The world is always this way because looting is easier than creating.

Looting only requires force but can not be a self sustaining system without someone to loot from, hence they fail over time. Creating and making require more effort but can be a self sustaining system, but sadly no effective system has been discovered yet to prevent the thugs from winning.

My 5 cent opinion.

Sounds about right. No one is ever going to restore this balance. People it try everyday but either get killed or insane by it. But I don't want to think that next stop is Third World War or sun explosion or really ending of the world. If so what alternatives do we have? Will some other humans. Like second type races of humans with slight differences in their flaws go here and remember us as those who tried but never could adapt? I think maybe they just pay respect as they can see our sadness is breaking us down. Will we get in oblivion or will someone or something remember us? Like a tape of human history in computers or something else that we cannot even set our thoughts in.

Maybe there will be a Tellus II. I don't know. Just speculation on interesting theories.
What else is out there?

Education, my friends. People in distress will always go down to the most common denominator, e.g. the animal instincts. If one is educated, you'll have much factoring to do before reaching that prime number.

" Its the answer to the riddle of life. What matter isn't money, wealth, love, or even lust. There is only one thing that matters, now just as it did then: power. Raw overwhelming power. He who has it, rules. He who doesn't, begs. " -Jinn from Clive Cussler's "The Storm"

If I could go to school but this hell prison makes it really hard on me. My past got dark marks....
Of course feeding my brain with knownledge would be much better than my own questions around things.
Maybe I could go deeper in thoughts then with a more proper saying. Somehow I have to get back to school...

What has happened is that universities, especially the humanities departments, are no longer centers of education, but indoctrination. Their goals are overtly activist and political, often officially so. Fed a constant diet of dissension, students become convinced that modern society (of which they are grossly ignorant of, as are their professors) is a cesspool of oppression, injustice and racism. Fact is that which enough people believe, and truth is determined by how fervently they believe it. Anything can be true if someone repeats it loudly enough. These coddled students, upon graduation, are just aching for a fight -- any fight.

If I can keep go on with skipping school I would do that but society today isn't that kind. Also I do want to go to school for education purposes but mostly to meet new people. So how do I put this. I don't want to waste time on school from scratch since it takes a lot of time and effort. Also I want to get into something that can let me meet new people. I don't know where to begin. Right now I am not able to do school while focusing on my social inexperience. So I have to start off somewhere to meet people for that reason only. I did some concerts around on piano which was very fun. People loved it and commented it. ''You are talented.'' They said. ''Never stop playing. It is your gift.''
People got impressed and happy and I was having a lot of fun with it. It is free to live and listen you know.

You don't have to go to school to learn.
