Can you change the world? Do you think you can change the world for the better?
Many young people are optimistic that they can change the world. They look forward to change the world through political means, social ideals and scientific invention.
Some young people decide to teach. They think that teachers can change the world by influencing the children to aim for the betterment of human beings.
However, the older ones know better.
If you ask them the question of can you change the world, the older ones will tell you to plant your feet on the ground.
Nobody can change the world. Whatgoes round comes round.
It is hard enough to change ourselves without thinking about changing the world.
The older ones, especially those who live in difficult times, know that nothing ever change. The poor are still poor. The rich are still rich.
The rich people are powerful. The poor people do not know their power. Even after a revolution, there are still more poor people than rich people.
A thousand years before our times, the rich people were hiring the poor people to work long hours.
The same applies today. Nothing ever changes.
It is not in the nature of any person to changethe world for the better.
It is very rare for anyone to know the existence of a person after his death. In the whole history of mankind, how many people literally have the power to change the world? You can count with your fingers.
The only person we can change is ourselves.
We can change our thinking, our habits, and our lifestyle. We can change into the kind of person we want to be. We can help a few persons and change their lives for the better.
However, we can never change the world. Nobody has the power to change the life of everyone else on Earth.
What do you think? Can you change the world?
