    What kind of people does the world need more of? What the world needs now is_____________?


    "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


    "We need to shift from an economic organizing principle for human civilization, to a humanitarian organizing principle. Making money more important than your own children is a pathological way for an individual to run their affairs, and it's a pathological way for a society to run its affairs." Marianne Williamson

    The planet could probably do with less humans, in general.
    But I otherwise agree.

    What's happened with this now, I'm pretty sure I've seen this and a couple of the other threads which were posted along with it with pages of comment and now there's just the OP or the OP and a single response.
    All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture

    Judging by your threads you seem to be shopping. Might I suggest The Way of a Pilgrim?

    MacGyvers and Captain Picards.
    Hmmm, I wonder if my posts about "the crazy fat kid" had anything to do with the server mishap. You just never know.

    I agree the world needs more kind hearted people.

    I'd also say less personally ambitious people as well - there are too many controlling, intrusive people who think they can fix everyone else without having any training, knowledge, or perspective. They cause so much damage, but never see it because it feels righteous. Maybe less arrogance overall would fix all the ambition problems, both personal and professional.
