Almost everything most people think and do these days:
is destructive, selfish and ugly.


These days? It's always been like this only with less people.

I believe we all ought to try to make things better because
i think we should treat the world and other people,
how we would like to be treated ourselves.



There are several possibilities, WTF? :lol:

You could focus on yourself instead of paying any heed to the needs of others if doing so causes you pain.

I think everyone "should" be treated with a pound of steamed broccoli at precisely 5:10:41 AM everyday, because this is how I like to be treated! :whatever:

A cause is never vain until you failed at making it happen and how are you going to know if you don't try?

Well, if you're asking me, no, never. As long as you believe it's the right thing to do and that failure did not stop you from reaching your goal yet, a cause is never vain.

It's just trendier to act cynical these days isn't? ... well!

What if your cause is to grow wings and fly like a bird? :leaving:

It's just trendier to make illogical statements these days, isn't it?

You just proved it my friend! Speaking of causes, you should definitely seek yours instead of arguing in vain with me. :grin:

Alright, now that that's over, then I suppose you'd like to explain why you believe everything is possible for everyone, right?

Well, alright if you insist. I can spare a couple of minutes :wink:

That's not exactly what I said though. What I said was that a cause is never vain as long as it hasn't been proved to be otherwise. And how do you prove that a cause is vain if not by exprience?

From that, how can you tell me that the cause I was troubadouring about was vain if you never embraced it yourself being the cynical little animal that you are? :grin:

I've never experienced a shotgun blast to the face, but it would still be pretty vain of me if I hope to survive one. :shrug:

For one, your cause is extremely vague and ambiguous, so I'm not even yet going to bother thinking about it further. Also, people don't just change so easily, and I know this from experience.

We're not talking about a shotgun blast! We're talking about revolution and revolution has succeeded before, may I remind you? Unlike surviving a shotgun blast to the face. Your comparison is poor.

And I do not wish to change people ( only myself ), although if it does happen in the process, that would be even better. You see? At first CJ was all " it's not worth this, it's not worth that " but after two posts of my inspirational magic he was headbanging hard to the revolution song!

So I'm not fooling myself, thank you for caring, but one thing is for sure: revolution can only flourish by inspiring people with hope not with cynicism.

:lolsy: I never thought I had changed your life my friend! What I meant is that obviously, people are going to be inspired by words of hope rather than words of defeat. And that these days, we hear too much about defeat and not enough about success...
