Soapboxing huh.... I guess I didn't comment on all of the solutions offered. I have yet to state my mind on the subject of money, but I felt you had already responded to that adequately, hence I stepped out. I did respond to a few other options, eagerly waiting their responses till now. But most of the posts have been on how we are developing, which is why it seems im sticking to my view. The argument before was about optimistic improvement, everybody contributing to society. That already happens. In a far more realistic manner.
They're called jobs.
People around the world are putting in effort to change it in their own way. To be a part in a wheel of progress. Which is why I'm angered when someone says we can do better. It's essentially condemning a man's life work as everyone is already working according to the standard. I'm condemning the standard, which is why I'm being general.
I can't travel. And the amount of knowledge I can acquire on a topic like this is limited considering what I'm actually focusing on. That's why I placed this discussion on the lounge. To be discussed casually. Although my thread might be taken down after this, which I really don't care about as while this is a fun community, things like that happen.
My opinion on speeches stands. I've never believed in a speech without action. It's been very hard for me to learn because of that and has been a challenge I've been working on. But if you're going to tell me x=y, give me examples instead of just telling me.
I don't understand biology. I admire the design of the human anatomy and hope to implement it into my future designs, but for now I can only speak like a simpleton. Forgive me for that.
Lazy might have been a stretch. Your analogy is much better.
As for the notable, which is to say, according to recent arguments, all of us... I might have seen too much of the contrary to ever believe that people are good at developing. I've never met someone who actually chased change. I've only met people who want to get a good job, want to make money, e.t.c.
I've met horrible people who've disregarded everything they've been taught for a quick thrill.
I've seen people suffering and failing to reach their dreams.
I've seen the blood flow from the shot up corpse of a brave man killed by common crooks, who are a product of this failed society
Forgive me if my view is biased, but I can't help it. I don't see development in a place that so badly needs it. Hence I don't see any sensible development.
Go to space if you want, but until you somehow manage to transform it into a habitable plot of land, overpopulation us still a problem.
Propose suitable alternatives to toxic chemicals. Until you manage to monopolize the market, we'll continue to kill our own planet without a second thought.
Propose crazy new building plans, they don't matter if they never even receive their funding, do they?
This is what I mean by lackluster development. Let science help substantially in those areas for a change.
I'm a creationist, thank you very much.
And what winner?
