Why You Can Change The World

Though it looks like the world is set in its ways, it is in fact eminently open to change by those who dare to swim into the stream of history. If you like our films, take a look at our shop (we ship worldwide): https://goo.gl/uHTaWl

“One of the things that separates confident from diffident people is their sense of how feasible it might be to change the status quo. Broadly-speaking, the unconfident believe that history is over; the confident trust that it is still in the process of being made – one day possibly by themselves…”

Sure one CAN change the world, but the difficult question is why bother?
Change will occur regardless of how one feels about it or what they do (or
don't do) to trigger it.

Discussions lead to arguments, argmuents leads to politics, and from
politics come change. Change is happening all the time. As a matter of
fact, change isn't always the right answer to all questions.

Sorry, but by from I heard here, these dissidents or whatever seem really
narrow-minded to me. The reason something didn't happen yet is because it
can't or shouldn't happen? History is in the past, it's not something
happening right now? What kind of mentality is that?

Glad you mentioned how we age and die. I have many friends involved in
longevity activism and research, and I do think one day we may even live
indefinitely in good health and biological youthfulness, however thinking
that, there are fears that come in of us possibly missing out on it, like
in your video about why people are negative about the future. But at the
same time it'll only happen if people believe it can and take actions now.

Yes, what they said in school is true. You can be anything you want.
Granted, they don't mention the second line. "But there's a price."

Still, it leaves a noticeable downside. Two actually, though the second is
probably just laziness on my part.
One: You can be whatever you want, but so can everyone else. How many jerks
do you know?

Two: You can stop anything. Change anything.
Why aren't you?

Suicide is an attempt to kill yourself.
Take poison.

Suicide is also putting yourself in a situation likely to kill you.
Attack a cop with a gun.

Suicide is noticing that something will kill you, but staying where you are.
A train is coming down the tracks and you shrug, staying where you are.

What is old age?

So far, the course of the entire history sums up at "Getting bigger".
That's it.
Whatever good is found, is throw aside for the sake of more.
Any actual advancement, is used only for the sake of managing to grow ever

I do not wish for this form of continuum... I want something that'll
actually advance this world as a whole, not only give humans a larger dick
to screw everything around it with.

My thoughts and ideas do not fit this current wave... Hence, I can hardly
see them ever making any difference.

Humans desire to be at the top, and crush everything ells at the bottom.
Unity and mutuality, aren't in their best interests...
Conquest, domination, submission... These seems to rule the motivation of

Автор John Gonzalez ( назад)
The biggest problem in the world is predominance of hidden structures of
power that influence nearly every aspect of our lives. The spy agencies,
the secret societies, the bankers, wealthy individuals, etc.

Changing the world is a very moot point when the average person and groups
of people have to deal with entire "armies" of people who work on behalf of
these hidden power structures.

In my own personal experience, I have met individuals in nearly all walks
of life in nearly every post, from the very bottom, to professors,
researchers, scientists, who are under the control of the surveillance
state. Heck most of the scientists who get mainstream publicity got that
publicity because they worked with the power elite. This means what ever
they espouse must be supported and in many times guided by the power elite.

If you truly wish to be the school of life Alain de Botton, you must be
honest with your viewers and tell them about the hidden structures of

I guess that too many people stay inactive and hopeless due to this feeling
of being too small to change things. Sometimes, even if you can't change
the big things, you can change the smallest ones and this can improve
people's lives. If we all help each other, trying to be our better selves,
the world will benefit from that.

Neoliberalism and austherity economics thrive by presenting themselves as
an imutable force of nature. It is applied today as if the destruction and
inequality it created were not all around us to be seen. As if the world we
want and need should not be different than how it is.
Fighting its destructive economical ideology is one simple way we can
change the world. Some propose socialism is the alternative, to replace
capitalism itself. I don't have an answer yet, but I can at least diagnose
the problem we face.

I think is not that the society is over,is humanity is boring and over, we
tend to focus on the outside world more than we focus on ourself, who we
are and why we do the things we do. Human instinct is maybe what separate
us from true happiness, so that I belief there is hardly anything that is
gonna change, changes is only for our amusement make things dope and
interesting, our purpose of doing things don't change so there is hardly
nothing changes, people are always changing, confuse and angry, just like a

Автор Paladiesh ( назад)
Strongly disagree. It's not just about history and things being set in
stone. A reasonable cause for fear in the creative is caused by the sheer
number of people out there these days. Coming up with something original
becomes statistically less and less probable.
Another issue for a lot of us is basically money or in other words - fear
of failure and a sense of insecurity about one's future. Starting a new
business, pioneering new art forms or at least sitting down to write a book
are all investments of time and money and many people ask themselves "what
if I fail". A lot of us are afraid of ending up on the street with nothing
to show for it y'know. A very sad and selfish thought, but it's perpetually
there ...

We're living through the golden age of technology. I'd argue that societal
change for the better is happening more rapidly now than at any point in
history. In two or three decades, with the advent of automation and
personal 3D printing, we might even begin the post-resource age ... that
is, if we can figure out how to cope with accelerating global warming. All
I'm trying to say, if you see a change you want to make in the world, make
it your life's work, and maybe you'll live to see it happen.
