This is my 101st post.
Are we on the way up or the way down? Humanity, that is. This argument is plaguing thoughtful minds. It would seem that the most factual based thoughtful minds are in agreement that the world is crumbling under the fundamental flaws in all of us. I would argue, however, that to think all humans are flawed is such a Christian way of looking at things. By that I mean, because of the idea of original sin, there are a lot of people who are Christian who think that humanity is flawed beyond repair and born into original sin (god can save you of course.) I extend this same idea to those who do not believe in a god, but merely believe that humanity is flawed and cannot improve. Some think humanity can improve, but won't. Or, as I introduced, people who think humanitry (intended) is getting worse.
I don't believe individuals can understand each other, but can we as individuals understand humanity and/or society? Can we understand the direction it is heading? Or is it a too many headed creature? Because if we can revolutionize society, we will revolutionize ourselves. But I haven't found a way to do either yet. It has something to do with legacies, and their being bullshit.
