    The Sleep of Reason

    What the world need now is to let go of New Age nostrums and recognise the best our society is based on the Enlightenment of the 17th and 18th centuries.

    We need to let our imaginations run free and then subject them to evidence and reason.

    We should never forget the sleep of reason brings forth monsters.

    do you guys even try to propose something that is in essence available and accessible for utilisation?
    or is the survival of our species all about something we can never have?

    i say perspective. it's the resource that our more or less "free" will works through, like a mole works through earth. you just have to start to dig around.
    most things mentioned in the thread are either constructed from perspective, or in their effect dependent upon perspective (for example love: love whom? love good christians? white folks?)

    What the world needs now is the same thing it's needed for centuries. To abolish the idea that we all need to live by the same principles, beliefs and sensibilities in order to co-exist peacefully. For some reason people are enchanted by the idea that sameness would render happiness.

    Seriously? I would not argue that homogenising equality is the key to happiness but consider what you have written, that people do not need to share principles, beliefs and sensibilities in order to co-exist peacefully, surely the opposite is true, people need to share at least the principle, belief and sensiblity that they can peacefully co-exist in order to peacefully co-exist.
