What can we do to help people understand that this life must be lived better?

Life today has become abnormal

Anyone who looks at our contemporary life from the perspective of the normal life lived by people in earlier times—say, Russia, or America, or any country of Western Europe in the 19th century—cannot help but be struck by the fact of how abnormal life has become today. The whole concept of authority and obedience, of decency and politeness, of public and private behavior—all have changed drastically, have been turned upside down except in a few isolated pockets of people—usually Christians of some kind—who try to preserve the so-called "old-fashioned" way of life.

Our abnormal life today can be characterized as spoiled, pampered. From infancy today's child is treated, as a general rule, like a little god or goddess in the family: his whims are catered to, his desires fulfilled; he is surrounded by toys, amusements, comforts; he is not trained and brought up according to strict principles of Christian behavior, but left to develop whichever way

    What about the Greeks and the Romans and the debauchery of old? I think it swings one way and then the other. Clearly there's no happiness to be found here, and soon (but maybe like 100 years soon) people will turn to a different way to find that happiness. But in every point in history there was some sort of grotesquity, people accepted it then rejected it for something just as bad. It's the nature of humanity.

    We have to move away from the culture and system of consumption and materialism towards respect for people and the nature.

    As long as corproations rule we need wars, wealth and greed to run our lives leading to waste and deaths!

    The so-called Christian right is at the tip of this evil.
