If individual is good, so is the society.
Everyone would like to change the world, but that ambition is set incorrectly. To be honest, the one who can change the world doesn’t intend to change the world at the very first. He just share his talent. He doesn’t care whether there is someone who will get the benefit from his talent. He doesn’t care. It is like flower that spreath the beautiful smell to the world. The flower doesn’t care that there is no one small it. Yes, just share.
However, the people who sets the the goal to change the world is troublesome. Yes. Try to change people around him to be good regarded to his ideology. Imagine that if there are so many people try to change everyone, then the society will be mess up. One could hold his own ideology and pit to each others. That is the worst case. By having everyone hold the same ideology and make the world better, the one who can change the world will feel much better in terms of ego. It is like the circle is surrounded by the bigger ones, so that circle will feel “big” which is actually not. He might succeed in changing the world but he has never changed.
To have the good society, you don’t have to improve others. It is not your business. Same goes to others. It is not their business to change you.
That is what I call “freedom”. If you open the philosophy or the political science book, the responsibility has never been mentioned. The creativity has never been mentioned. It just gives you the definition and the example of the French revolution. Any political situation that claimed itself as the revolution is not really the revolution. Nothing new happens for centuries, so it is worthwhile to try the new way…changing yourself first. Individual is good, then the society is, not vice versa.
Don’t try to change others, and do not let others change you.
Mind your own business first before you feel fulfilled and share your beauty of life.
