My interest is how can we change the structure and function of the social system so that human beinging on the average live longer with an improved quality of life?


We can't change the structure and function of the social system so that human being's on the
average live longer with an improved quality of life ...

We can't do that because we do not own or control the social system, and so, do not have the right to impose on it our views of what structure and function it should or must have ...

And we don't have the right to dictate to other people what their quality of life should be ...

We tried that in Viet Nam, remember, and those people over there got kind of uppity about it, as they should have ...

At best, maybe we can help a few other people improve themselves in our lifetimes ....

And if presented the opportunity, we should take it and not crow about it afterwards, how much we are helping people ...

And so ...
Everything that is, is in motion. Change in the human social system has occured, is occuring and will continue to occur. We can individually and collectively INFLUENCE the direction and rate of change. We need to focus on increasing mutual human identification between and among the members of the social system. We need to focus on increasing and improving the democratic process at all levels and domains of the social system. Where else should our focus be?
