    Default Is this the best of all possible worlds?

    Do you consider this the best of all possible worlds? If you do or if you dont do you think it could be changed or should be changed?
    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

    ..For who or what? Best is very subjective...For myself its pretty great. In a world in which I exist and have all my basic needs cared for. I would not ever take the chance changing it out of fear of evil tricky genie/butterfly effect like scenarios.

    Best out of all possible worlds and outcomes? Of course not. I doubt such a thing even in different worlds or universes could even be achieved.

    I don't know if I like the wording, but on a macro level, yes. It seems to be the logical conclusion of believing in an omnipotent, omniscient, benevolent, and ultimately sovereign God.

    But, on a day to day level I'm constantly reminded that things are not as they should be.
