    Jaded Idealists?

    The lights come up on center stage.  A man stands alone looking at the audience--- Man:  Is it possible to be a Jaded Idealist?  You see, I am still an idealist, I see the world through rose tinted glasses... or at least I think I do.  The trouble is...

    I'm an idealist, realist

    and a cynic. I don't find them to be mutually exclusive traits. The idealistic me likes to believe the best of people. The realistic me understands that there are people who think nothing of using other people for their personal gain. The cynical me thinks that every person...

    I am an idealist, some may call me

    Craving What Is Not

    The world never seems to be enough - I have always longed for a better one, more harmonious, more enchanted. A utopia of culture and dignity, close group of sensitive and deep people around me. Accepting reality is hard sometimes. I ask myself: Why can't people be more...

    Love and Peace

    In my young adult life, I believed this world could be a better place.  If everyone felt loved,  then love could bring peace.

    It's true. I idealize

    and go into my dream world a lot of the time, and I have my Utopia planned out in my head, literally.

    Can't Fight the Revolution

    I could write a lot on this topic, but I am supposed to be writing and essay (two actually, among other things as well) right now. Later, I hope, I will write about it more in-depth. When it comes down to it, whether people external to me perceive it or not (I suppose I have...

    Is It Worth The Effort?

    I suppose at my age I really have to ask whether I should expend effort on certain things or just let it go. Of course some things like traffic road rage incidents are pretty obvious. Let them win, who cares. They may even have a gun. You just never know anymore. The problem I...

    People, human beings,

    are meant for so much more. They, we, can be great. We can achieve things together that seem impossible now. But at the time I'm writing this, it seems that the majority of people are not even decent. They're so angry at themselves and at others, so caught up in day to day...

    Idealist And Proud.

    I'm an idealist, and I hope age does not take that away from me. Many great men (and women) in this world achieved what they did because they did not give up on their goal and their ideals. I hope I do not either. Fraser

    Complicate

    The problems of the world always seem an easy fix to me. Teach the hungry to grow food; teach the poor that only socioeconomics place that label, as long as the basic needs are met, and you have love, you are not poor; teach the war ridden that, at any cost, you can't force your...
