Growth comes from seeing something that needs change, learning as much as you can to understand it and finding a way to make it better. This is how we’ve gone from walking around and hiding in caves, to flying to the moon. However sacrificing all ethical thought and actions to make progress is not good growth. Instead it’s like a cancer growing from within. You can try to treat it or cut it out, but there’s always a scar or something left behind. Meanwhile there’s 30 other problems you’ve created trying to fix something caused by those bad choices. things damaged like this aren’t easy to repair. Unfortunately as long as there are those who hold onto the past will cause as much damage as those who deny the past in the name of progress. Prosperity isn’t money. It’s life and experience.
Humans are by far the most destructive, selfish, and petty beings. the worst of them live in North America. Globally the problem is men and their fragile sense of superiority. religion further exacerbates the problem as a divisive tool for those seeking power to convince those more ignorant to bend to their will. Political parties claim they are for the people but only are there for those who add more riches to their pockets. If no side is right then how can we move forward?
Nobody budges and nobody cares. Denial is as bad as the malice. Enabling is as bad as the malice. Only when everyone says “no more” and makes equality a real goal, then there is no future or hope for progress.
