Kill all humans, and let the robot overlords rise. Think about it, Mars is a planet entirely populated by robots and they're not having any wars or anything.

This is honestly the hardest question I've thought about. Nothing is the "right" way or the "wrong" way for this world to become better. At this point, from what I've seen in the media, humans aren't capable of having a sense of "justice". I only collected this information from the media because our life revolves around it.

When I said that humans aren't capable of "justice" is because we use feelings to justify our own actions. It's good to have feelings, but it's also bad too. I think now, humans aren't thinking of what the future will think of us. Or how we will help the future. We are so stuck in ourselves and what we should be doing now because we are hurt or we are happy. And as humans, we have to make ourselves happy. But don't let your happiness get in the way of others. That's why I think we take the future for granted. You know when we learn about history? How there was child labor, slavery, messed up sovereignty, etc.? I bet back in their time, the people thought it was okay. Now as the future generation for them, we think they are messed up. Wouldn't our future generation think we are messed up for not considering about the planet which we live on?

Overall, my way of making the world better is considering the future.

I agree. People are way too focus on being "unique" and, society is overly appreciating the idea of being "different". This is just my observation.

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. -Thorin, The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkein



UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. -Dr. Seuss


These are still completely relevant.

People need to decide what really matters to them then they have to stand up for that and defend it. What a lot of people keep talking about in this thread is how to achieve a Utopia. Frankly, there's no such thing as a Utopia. It's theoretical. What one person called a utopia, another will find flaw in. This thread is about how to make a better world, not a utopia. Now what I, personally, define "world" as in this case is YOUR world. Your daily life and everything that affects it. If conflict in other countries upsets you, then it's part of your world because it is affecting your happiness.

So, to make the world a better place, decide what you value and protect it! If that causes conflict with others, so what?! We can't get rid of conflict and conflict isn't a bad thing. Nothing progresses without conflict. People cause conflict by going against the norm and changing society. But progress with no boundaries also spells disaster. Compromise is a great thing, as long as it is fair.

In conclusion, figure out your own values and beliefs and stand up for them, protect them when they are threatened. Don't cause unnecessary trouble, and always have compromise as an option. One more thing, empathy is never a bad thing and can turn monsters back into men.

Division without realizing the sameness of human experence is something thats done way to often. it seems like its all too easy to get caught up in our one little niche of ideology/identity and not even view someone who doesn't agree with us as human.

Having awareness of the limits of our own perception and having some room to accept that our views are either flawed, still a work in progress, and or ununknowab would probably help.

Before accepting the ideologies given to us in our childhood actually analyze, reflect, and identify the biases and prejudices that come with it (Since those are your biases and predujices) and then ask if that actually matches up with my own experience and is baised in reality or if it's actually someone elses experience or just straight up fantasy imagination tthat someone wished the world was. This can apply to any pretty much anything, but I think this thought practice could very well be useful in what is the heart of societies, what a culture is based around i.e A cosmology and or religion.

I think emotions are cool cause their what makes us human (Im pretty sure at least) but if we want to have an actual discussion they probably should be noticed but not acted upon if that makes sense. Getting angry or crying or even manic laughter doesn't progress the conversation nor do the things said afterwards i.e personal attacks and emotional manipulation.

Taking notice whem we willingly give our power to someone or something for subservience and a possibility of a better future without question.

Actually taking care of yourself so you have the ability to go through life with more ease, less emotionality, and more contentment. It's like people pride themselves on beating themselves up/subtly or even overtly abusing themselves weither that bethroughwork,diet,relationships, lifestyle, ect.

1. Promote tolerance through free speech. Protecting the speech we hate makes us more tolerant people in general--and tolerant people are less inclined to develop the "us versus them" mentality that is often associated with evil.

2. Pay attention to consequences. Easier said than done, but a constant focus on the human consequences of decisions--a thoughtfulness--is the most important key to avoiding evil.

3. Reduce career incentives that lead to an underweighing of human consequences. For example, prosecutors should be rewarded based on how well they serve justice, not on their won-loss records.

4. Facilitate interaction between legal decisionmakers and the persons affected by their decisions. The more interaction that occurs, the greater the opportunities for empathy to develop and for the human consequences of decisions to be fully weighed. Expand the discretion to be lenient.

5. Facilitate the development of empathy in homes and in schools. Promote strong families and encourage new programs in schools to develop the pragmatic art of living well.

6. Choose heroes wisely. Hold up those who have served justice, not those who have achieved fame or financial success.

7. Maintain a dogmatic belief in objective value. The central values of western civilization--mercy, truthtelling, respect for parents and elders, duties to children, justice, equality, magnanimity, reverence for life--should be accepted, not questioned.

Some of us suffer because society doesn't accept those who are different though.

To make everyone not divided would be to punish those who are treated like shit for being different in the first place.

Terence McKenna once said that Technology/Internet and Psychedelics are what's gonna save this world. He was half right (so far), hopefully psychedelics become legal one day so it can change society for the better.

I never said anyone had to change, the point I was trying to make is that right now we have so many differences we are now becoming unable to understand one another, we are becoming 'alien' to each other. Unity isn't changing everyone into the same thing but finding the links between us and making them stronger. Instead of valuing our own uniqueness and personality we need to value what we have in common

Why are they alien to you? is it because they don't understand you or because you don't understand them? do you try to understand others?
