    The 'positive' images in this thread hardly compare to the negative ones, i.e. Barack Obama compared to torture, someone hugging/kissing compared to starvation/murder, someone kissing compared to someone set on fire...

    I know exactly what can help me/my situation but as you said I do not have the power thus making it all the more tragic and hard to cope with. Nevermind. thanks.
    I mean a general solution to any of the major problems?
    Personally I think a lot of the worlds suffering revolves around consumerism. Both indirectly and directly. Of course we're all consumers but what I'm talking about is this culture of buying thing after thing we don't need.
    To make it worse we can't tell who has been involved in making most products. So this makes avoiding companies that cause a lot of suffering (at least in my case, I guess why you avoid a company is down to the individual) next to impossible in many cases.
    The lack of clarity that results from corporate power is one of the most tedious and frustrating issues in modern society for me.

    Lol, what the hell has Barack Obama ever done? Just because he's black doesn't mean he's the pillar of humanity! Besides, ironically of institutionalised torture still takes place under Obama's government...

    Some of us aren't so pessimistic. :yes:
    There's a major difference between pessimistic, optimistic, and the word we're looking for, 'realistic'.

    I think...

    Capitalism is where the problem lies: The West thrives, the rest dies.

    capitalism itself isn't the problem, although I don't think the way the market is currently regulated is doing us any favours. That said socialism might solve some of these issues.
    I one of the main issues is CEO's of big companies. A lot of the time they just try to make more money for shareholders at the expensive of anything.
