    What kind of people does the world need more of?


    "The planet does not need more 'successful people.' The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds. It needs people to live well in their places. It needs people with moral courage willing to join the struggle to make the world habitable and humane and these qualities have little to do with success as our culture is the set.” Dalai Lama

    All the above mentioned by the venerable Dalai Lama, and I would also add to that list "deceased".

    I'm not sure the world needs more people, especially not in the developed world, even if they are saint they are likely to be living a very high impact existence simply day to day. Of the lower impact living peoples, such as nomadic people in sub-saharan africa, I'm sure some of them are very saintly in their dealings with each other but I'm not sure the world would notice a difference if there were more or less of them.

    This is a little like a bunch of old sayings, some of them I picked up from political sources, some from just cynical sources, about "no one who did no harm ever warranted a statue".

    My vote goes to "sane", "competent" wouldn't hurt either.

    I'm mostly concerned about the lack of single, bearded men in my general vicinity.
