Hello Thom , It's been my observation that some people are innately "mean" and will never change. Do you think that there is any way to alter that personality trait? Eliminate violent video games (?) Eliminate violent TV programs (?) Stop constant wars with killing of thousands of innocent people (?) Show on TV news some of the many, many, many wonderful and empathic things that people are doing rather than daily announcing every criminal action (?) Stop teaching to the test and encourage creativity and individuality (?) Acknowledge and reward inspiration and kindness (?) Get manufacturing back into the USA so that going to work is the "norm" (?) More hugs for babies (?) Less yelling and more conversation with kids (?) Teaching more sociology (?) More phiosophy (?) More science (?) More biology (?) How do we become so in awe of our cosmos that we choose to do no harm (?) Maybe the crazies aren't aware of the national debt, TPP, disregard for ecology, etc., etc., etc., but could a more healthy country produce less hopelessness and more healthy people (?) No solutions - only questions. Regards.
