Scorched Earth

Something to think about:

Having thousands of scattered organizations struggling to bring light to thousands of scattered issues in this world, is like spraying bullets toward your adversary, assuming a few of them will hit, and hoping some of those will possibly make an impact. It is relatively ineffective.

Now, imagine if we were to concentrate our collective firepower on one target simultaneously; if the benevolent organizations of the world joined forces - even if just for a moment - and supported the same particular cause. In no time at all, we would bring any injustice down. We would be unstoppable. The world would finally see some real positive change.

Are we still so archaic here in 2009 AD? Is it beyond our ability to actually work together for the good of mankind and our surroundings? Am I the only one who even cares anymore? Or are we merely that unorganized?

One of the biggest keys to life it seems, is achieving a delicately balanced polarity. This is the fine line between logic and happiness. It is balancing on this line that is the real challenge for me in life. It's difficult to stay positive in such a negative world. It's illogical to be happy with the world today, with so much injustice and misery surrounding us. Seeing the logical side of life - we are born, we live, we die... on a large enough scale, we are completely insignificant to the universe - does not bring happiness. This world is a walking hypocrisy. A double-edged sword. A conundrum.

Why is it that the smartest people I know have to struggle with depression? Why are the rest too often ignorant and/or naive? Is it fair that I see the so-called "happy" people out there as phony and insincere?

Can it ever be possible for one to be both happy and realistic?
