Well, the C_S_T subreddit on Reddit that I've been a part of for many years has always been more essay than shower-thought like (despite the title of the sub), so I am posting with that in mind, despite this being SaidIt :)

Which comes first? The inner solutions will always come first, out of which awareness is primary. From being aware, then one can guide one's creative impetus, dissolve the pain and limitation within, as well as guide one's inner world and visualize one's desired reality or simply play with creative visualization. Your comment related to consciously directed day-dreaming fits in there as well, of course :)

It does not really require hope, it simply requires an inner desire to make the world better, as well as yourself.

Most of what I've written touches on both the individual and collective level. Even if the world goes to hell and all is lost, at least attempting to make it better, as well as attempting individual improvement, will make your life happier and more fulfilling as a result.

You don't even need to believe the world will be saved to do these things - simply contributing to your own growth and that of the world will give a more meaningful life and will touch others with your example and action.

That is at least my experience - and in my opinion acting in this manner is worth the effort.

Well indeed that was exactly my point (which I think can be seen from the context of the whole post) - I simply used the word world, instead of civilization.

However our actions do not impact our species alone. The Earth itself will survive us, no matter what happens, but the millions of animal and plant species on this planet are well in our grasp to help protect or destroy - and we are now far more on the side of destroying them and their natural habitat.

Saidit keeps getting nonsense frontpage generalizations about liberals so I thought I'd help balance it out with some Conservative Paradise by EndlessSunflowers in conspiracy

It always bothers me so much that people put each-other into tiny little boxes like "liberal" or "conservative" and then everything about that person based on said box and mental label.

Not talking about you OP, I assume that is the very idea you were trying to dispel with this exaggerated picture about one of those sides.

Modern culture is certainly not your friend, that is true.

Very insightful, thanks for posting.

As always, awareness remains the key. The key to ending any form of manipulation.

Asus Just Gave You 1 Million Reasons To Switch From Windows To Linux by sawboss in Linux

I have been using Linux Mint for several months now and I'm really enjoying it.

I have an older laptop (now 10 years old, but still very solid) and it works like a charm. The security, the performance, the lack of inherent spyware that Windows users have to put up with....unless you need it for very specific programs or games that run only on Windows (and you can't use WINE [which emulates the Windows environment on Linux] to get them to work on Linux), Linux is the better choice.

It's you! Man I thought you disappeared way back for good.

I never really ever figured out whether you transformed into some other name on Reddit or just disappeared. I guess it was a transformation then :)

Agreed. As far as my experience with Voat goes, it was filled with anger, hater, bigotry, vitriol.....etc. (but hey, perhaps it's different now, I haven't been there in quite a while, so I can't judge really).

If one wants a productive space for conversation, one needs to move away from any kind of hate. Intelligent conversation cannot flourish with unchecked anger going around.
