Creating Your Own Environment (World)

The problems in the world, is that people think that they have to create the world for everybody else -- and not just the best world for themselves. So people still think they have to force everybody else to go along with them and "support" them, instead of just going ahead and making the best choices for themselves -- and not everybody else, which always leads to the world's catastrophes.

Individuals really are different -- and not the same, or forcing them to be -- no matter what that political correctness is called. Usually it is some noble sounding purpose like "progressive," "liberal," or even, "democratic -- this forcing, coercing and enforcing, of their will upon everybody else -- as the only true way, humans can live their lives.

And so everyone must agree to see things the same way -- even if it means denying all their own senses and better judgment to think for themselves. That is the greatest evil in the world -- even if one calls it the "enlightened" society, "paradise," or "utopia." Everyone must agree to give up their own preferences for this greater good -- that one person now decides for everyone else.

Such societies are consumed in the endless struggles for everyone to be that one person -- even if we now live in a world that provides enough for each person to make their own choices, and benefit from those outcomes. Thus the challenges of the "organization man," or conformist, were never greater, as those realities of a harsher survival and times become meaningless, and one now, is distinguished and made more fit, by the individual choices they make for themselves.

And so the difference in outcomes, were never greater -- even if some still see it as their task, to make them all the same. That is a particular problem in the schools, that still believe that the result of their education (indoctrination), is to make everyone think alike -- to their political correctness. Usually, that is, that those doing the teaching, should receive more than everybody else in society, because they above all, are the most deserving -- and particularly, most intelligent.

That's a hard habit to break -- of thinking of others only as the means to one's own ends, and not entitled to their own freedom and choices, as much as they have the capacity to exercise them. That is the cutting edge of society -- being created as people live their lives -- making the best choices they can recognize, and increasing those abilities to differentiate and discriminate them. It is a world that requires more discrimination -- and not no discrimination, and the inability to make any discriminations.

But discrimination is not just prejudice -- which is the inability to make valid discriminations, and so to think for oneself -- beyond the indoctrination of those who insist on thinking for everybody else -- and telling them what is correct -- for everybody, for all time.
