[question] The Inevitable Resolution?
Fri, Oct 31, 2008
...but seeing as most of them really don't like to think that much anymore, that isn't very likely at this point, most would prefer to have a solution presented to them.
I think the solution they need is the realization that there needs to be the reversal of exactly the problem you're talking about.
I think one of the largest problems here is the fact that the very educational facilities supposedly meant to foster thinking tend to deter the majority from learning and thinking critically by making the very idea of doing either seem dull and boring, just another exercise to do, just another enraging, non-engaging, repetitious requirement you have to go through to appease the higher authority. Anyone else agree with me that if a better system of getting people to know the world existed, then a lot of the problems that come from individuals just not getting the idea of getting ourselves together as a species would vanish? Of course, it all goes deeper than that, and I'm sure there's root causes to all these issues, but it's certainly a big issue.
