I'm sorry, how is the world changing for the better when we have ecosystems being wiped out every day because of capitalist animals and Lan Xang (Land of a Million Elephants) has less than 2,000 elephants left? You know in places like Thailand and Laos there used to be these things called plants and trees? Have you ever heard of them? The only green thing everyone cares about now is money. Back then in the past you didn't need money to survive, you could just gather food from nature.

The world is not changing for the better, people are just becoming more greedy and the want more money. People will do anything for money, even destroy the earth and destroy nature and everyone is sitting back and not caring. Did you forget why Laos was called Lan Xang? Maybe you should change the name to ບໍ່ເຖຶງສອງພັນຊ້າງ



In any country, animals are becoming less as human population grows and there are more infrastructure. If you don't appreciate what life has to offer in a modern society then you're more than welcome to drop everything including the internet and go to live in the jungle.

It's human nature to be greedy. You can be greedy because you want more food or you want more power, and not necessarily just about money. People have been greedy for thousands of years even when there was no money. That's why there are conflicts, that's why people fought each other using spears and swords. One wife was never enough for Kings in past. They want more and more and more.

Lan Xang was established through greed. There were many deaths and suffering in the war to turn the country into Lan Xang.

Just enjoy life while you are still alive. Earth will be destroyed by the Sun and not by humans, everything on this planet will be gone one day.

I didn't say I don't appreciate modern socieites, just the capitalist aspect of it. Capitalism is causing most of the destruction of the forests because instead of growing food to eat people need more and more land to grow cash crops to export and sell so they can have money to buy luxury items that they don't need such as TVs.

Here is an article about the disasters of capitalism:

I support socialism and planned state economies and blocking American goods from entering the economy, sort of like Cuba. Laos was doing everything right before 1990, it should have never opened the country.

People who destruct the forest, people who are corrupt, people who do bad things will be dealt with accordingly when they die. I don't worry about things that I don't have any control over, that's how I live my life. I have only got about 100 years to live so I want to do good things, be happy and whatever happens on this Earth, happens.

My mum once worked for the American Embassy in Vientiane and we're spoilt with their goods that ordinary citizens didn't have. It's crazy to block their goods when they make the best quality goods. Every country should be opened and not live in their own little world.

It doesn't matter what economy you support, all Governments lie to you.

I am sure you want to have an alternative taste of life.
Before you fully and finally taste the wonderful life of planned economiy, come to China to taste half-socialism flavor.  Grin

First of all, I'm worried because I want to try to make the world a better place, but I often feel powerless because I'm just one person and I can't make a change.

Second, things such as culture and nature should be preserved for future generations so they can enjoy these things like we did. I'm not just worried about myself, but the future generations and my grandchildren and great grandchildren if I ever have kids.

New products can always be made, they are worthless and have no real meaning. After many years of use, products can break, and then factories can just make a new one. Cultures are things that survive over many generations if they are preserved correctly and do not receive outside interference. Once a tradition or culture is gone it is gone forever, it cannot be made again in a factory, same thing with languages and animal species.

I care about things that actual have real value, not objects which can be replaced by making new ones. Life is not about owning things, but if that's what you want from life then that is your choice and your own right, but I prefer to see things a different way.

We all want to make the world a better place but you have no control over the situation so move on and enjoy life while you're still here.

Every country is constantly changing. There's always change in everything, the culture in Laos today is different to the culture from many years ago and that's not a surprise. Some products can last for the rest of your life and they are irreplaceable.

Like you said, it's everyone's own choice. How people want to live is up to them, whether they want to live the Lao way of life or the western way of life. You can't tell people what to do, and you can only worry about your own life. Be at peace with yourself.

Yeah, you can't control how people live their lifes, but when you are trying to find someone to spend your life with, ideally you are going to want someone with similar goals as you, so you are able to get along with them. Otherwise the only thing that will happen is fighting.

Goals change in a relationship, that's why there are divorces.

You can be similar and get along with each other now, but you don't know what's going to happen down the track. You can't predict the future.

People say they love each other forever but still end up breaking up. At a wedding ceremony, there is an official statement to approve your marriage, but there is no official statement to certify that you must be married and be with each other forever.
