Hi Spendius - that phrasing would imply that I was at odds with everything (that's not said in a harsh way - but in recognition of the power of phrasing to lead ones thoughts down a particular path)
- Is there not something in society that you think could be done better?
- Is there not something in society you disagree with?
A certain amount of conflict is actually good for society (no conflict whatsoever actually leads to a stale society)...and of course too much conflict is bad.
A certain amount of of greed can actually be good for society...and of course too much greed is bad.
A certain amount of giving can be good for society, but too much giving is actually bad (it takes a certain amount of wealth to generate wealth, and never being able to better your lot demotivates society)
A certain amount of individualism is actually good for society, and of course too much individualism is bad (the extreme of individualism is anarchy - no conformity at all with society)
A certain amount of community is actually good for society, and of course too much community is bad (the extreme of community is a tyrannical society that virtually forcefully insists on conformity and assisting others)
What then, is my issue?
