There is no way to get human beings to behave any better. Humans are humans and tangled. No one can tell a human being to be a different type of person. What if I were to try to tell a person: "you go be a different kind of human being"? You cannot, for example, tell an insincere person, "you should be more sincere." He won't listen. Who are you to tell him that? In the same way, you cannot force complicated adjustments upon the human race. The human race is already so complicated. If you keep telling people to change, what are you going to do? You are going to muddy up the waters; you are no longer able to see; and you will create all kinds of ramifications. You will not serve your own stated purpose.
No one should try to control society; it isn't like turning a knob on a prefigured mechanical device. Humans should be appreciated; first you appreciate, you don't fiddle.
Governments try to manipulate human beings, and they try to create programs to make a world, a world that they envision. Which is what they are paid for. After all the superstar amongst political leaders is the "visionary."
Why does this not work more often? Well. It is because - in a word, you people are sneaky. If you fiddle with a typical sneaky one all you are going to get is an expanded more psychedelic disaster. Oops.
I am trying to be realistic. The idea of "creating better people" is just an idea. Just one amongst many. Schemes of this sort - which are just ideas - should be judiciously evaluated, and, as for people, if you first of all appreciate them you may also appreciate how difficult it is to find the "knob" to turn, that changes them!
Finally, of course this may be clicked into the "conservative" classification by some, but, I am not trying to be conservative: I am trying to be realistic.
