So really,..the question then becomes: Is the world getting better or worse, all a matter of seeing and *choosing* to view half-empty glass, or half-full glass?
It’s really a matter of perspective? and how you’re *using* it to keep continuing, or *stop* and give up?..
And finally, what do you think about this post:
“that bit about suicide struck me though… the universe presents us with challenges for us to learn from them. suicide is just saying, “i don’t want to learn now”. you’ll still have to eventually though. folks who believe that the end of your body is the end of your life will disagree, but to me, that is not how the universe appears to function. capitalism is a strange entity, but ending your life because of it is a bit superficial no? everything that plagues us is a chance to make a change. giving up is certainly a change, but it doesn’t move anyone forward. i think it’s our job to act on behalf of the universe as a whole… having that perspective with respect to capitalism or anything else yields a completely different set of possibilities, and suicide is simply a delay (or a regression even?)… certainly not an escape as those who try hope it will be.”
