    Yep, the fallacy is that you would be fighting against a part of yourself in order to bring about harmony. Like all the wars are about bringing peace.

The more conscious people are of these concepts/ideas/ideals, and the more they are discussed or spoken of, the greater the growth in awareness in mankind.

    In the 50's and 60's the environment was just a buzz word discussed between those no-good-long-haired-strange-hippie-people (facetious). It is now an important movement that is recognised as a professional career path with many branches and is an important component of modern scientific research and industrial practise.

    It is also part of our consciousness (or that of most of us) to some degree or other as we recycle and try to reduce, reuse and recycle.

    The average person in the 50s or 60s would not have even been aware of such issues as the burqa being banned in France yet here we are, with a strong consciousness and polarised opinion debating intelligently on the justness or not.

    I think the OP is a valuable core set of values for living, and one I hope will also produce the same ripple effect of the environmental ideology even if it takes 100 years (tho I don't think we have that long to make these changes).
    Cool, I appreciate your optimism.

    It requires different ways of thinking and considering other people's perspectives. One must be mindful of the present and the future, not just the past.

    the best bet is lead by example
    In order for society to survive, we must all pitch in and cooperate with one another, split the resources fairly.
    If we get greedy, everything will fall apart
    The main reason why there is no long peace is because everything is set and stone.
    Another is that resources are limited and the ones who had the most goes bad because they are in control.

    The libertarians need to play a much bigger role in reining in the irrational violence of non-libertarians. At the heart of every conflict is a disrepect for the rights (property, religious, civil) of other people. Every school curriculum should teach libertarian principles and how to resolve differences through reason rather than violence. That's not going to happen anytime soon because the vast majority of humanity are irrational, greedy bastards.
    Senator Rand Paul is alive because of modern medicine and because his attacker punches like a girl.
