    Change the world

    How would you change the world to make it a better place to live? Or maybe you think that the world is already a perfect place?

    Tell me your ideas, and tell me if you're planning on putting them into action

    Creating robotic fire-control platforms for border protection. track and mow down anything higher than 3 inches. No questions. No confusion.

    if it flies, it dies. If it crawls, it falls.

    People would only be necessary to keep the ammunition loaded and tracks clean, oiled, and free of jams.

    If I could, I would try to remove all hate in this world...I would also give myself lots of money. =)

    But then everyone would hate you, so you'd have to remove them.

    I'm not interested in making this world a better place. I'm only interested in making my own life better.

    How would I change the world for the better?
    Hmm... I don't think I would actually...

    ...for one thing, I'm such a bloody-minded critic and perfectionist that there wouldn't be much of the world left if I were in charge.

    ...for another thing, it's pointless talking about what we would do to change the world/get rid of hate etc... The world as it is now is what we have to live with with all the bugs in the code. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't but it always has bugs. There's not an awful lot we can do to prevent them. Despite it's bad points I wouldn't be without it.

    The minute we're born we begin to deteriorate and die. The
    only way to make earth a better place is to leave.

    gill bates, hahahah....hehe...::tears coming out of my eyes::

    This is pretty funny, but I thought gill is a girl name, teeheehe....

    Ok, back on topic, um, if I want to be this world a better place I would eliminate all selfishness, how to do that, I don't know, but I think that if all selfishness is gone from the world, everyone will help out each other, people will not harm others for their own benefit, and will become very considerate (communism will eventually work!)...

    But that is impossible...A Chinese writer once wrote that the people are all born evil, well, not "devil" evil but "bad" evil...But another said they are born good, and are influenced into a bad person (this is acutally from a student of Confucious, or whatever it is in English) ...well, I personally think that people are born evil...I mean, babies cry like it's the end of the world when the mom forgot to feed it...geez, talk about selfish...

    So, people will always be selfish. And in my class discussion about "The Chrysalids", I think that people will also always discriminate others...They will never be able to see pass other people's differences and judge them by their personality. That alone makes this world a pretty bad place...People start copying other "cool" people's ways just so that "they" can get popular, so that they seem like they "belong" to the "popular" group...However much a person denies it, they do it in different degrees.

    Well, that's it...

    Osk, how do you think you can make the world a better place?

    And series, you will not make your life better by making others' worse...

    If I were a dog I guess I'd say "Kill all Cats!" but I'm not a dog.
