While absorbing knowledge and furthering one's personal understanding of the universe is laudible, has anyone ideas about how we are going to increase public understanding of the nature of reality?
Politics is wholly corrupt and filled with selfish fools, religion and pseudoscience are a poison. Western society now predominantly favors escapism and hedonism rather than positive contributions to the happiness of others. Third world countries are suffering just as much as they were before we knew about them.
I'm most interested in personal goals, practical ways that any of us have thought up for improving the world around us. What is the next step for us grumpy non-believers?
