|All Problems are due to cultureAll my experience teaches me that most of societies ills, starvation, crime, corruption are due to culture. It's no use throwing money at a problem, if you can change the culture you can fix the problem.|
- If you can get people to save food in the rich years, they won't starve in the poor ones.
(It seems to me in Contemporary British society there are well adjusted people who are willing to get on and respect other people, but at the same time there are disruptors who behave in a different way; they feel agrieved, have fun at other people expence they take more than their fair share etc. So much resources is used up in security measures and policing the disruptive people) (see the BBC2 TV Prog "The Experiment")
Maybe in the future there will be NO RETIREMENT and NO COMMUTING, we can design them out of our culture

|Marketing - the tool of the Devil (Bill Hicks - American comedian)|
As a child I saw that in the music sales charts - crap records make it to the top whilst good records are often locked out.
Marketing gives us a distorted picure of reality; instead of the cream rising to the top "the crap rises to the top"
Unemployment is good,because it's the ultimate, 100% leisure time..like being retiredthe real problem is we don't know what to do with our leisuretime.
Reading : There are some interesting books that also question the fundamentals of the way we live
|Opinions : |
If we can get people to : be honest, control capitalism so that things people are selling don't swamp things of real quality, so we get people to read classic books, not to blindly follow tradition, use logic, not be afraid to think different
Then we can move to a better culture and therefore better world
