If you cannot change the world, what will you do?

Leechard says:

The standard answer is to change yourself. You can easily find many:

5 tips on how to change your attitude
10 famous quotes about how to change in life, your self or the world
8 methods to change your own attitude
7 ideas about changing yourself
2 ways to...........

That is philosophy for the poor, or the mediocrity. 

It is hard to imagine the Indian philosophy about the universe had dominated the West. 

They would say the universe is perfect and not necessary to change. You can only change yourself. 

It is very different from the Chinese philosophy. The ancient Chinese thought that the universe was not balanced, and it needed the effort of human beings to help. 

The world needs progress. If one man cannot change it, then bring in more people.

Why is ugliness ugly?

Leechard says:


I do not need to consult a scholar to tell me what is ugly. Any one knows. 

Ugliness comes from human being. Nature is never ugly. 

Modern time is a time of ugliness. Other times are not. 

It is like nostalgic song. Nostalgic songs are from other time. New songs seldom have the feeling. New songs are mostly commercial and have no soul. 

Any thing with a soul is beautiful. Any thing lacks a soul is ugly. It is as simple as that. Yet we cannot do away the ugly domination in our time. 

We are living in ugliness.

Money is only consideration. We need money to live. No money spells peril. 

But this is the problem of amphibians. You can only choose one to live on. Either to live for the thing you like to do or live for money. 

Materialism is the major trend of modern world. It brings in soulless human beings. That is the source of ugliness. 

Materialism kills the soul in a secret way. Seldom do we know that our souls are gone. We are not happy because we have no soul, or living in a badly damaged soul.    

We cannot do away materialism. We are not able to do away materialism. Without the strong attraction of money, we would go back to medieval ages. 

It is the same as black and white, sweet and bitter, day and night. 

We wish things to be beautiful, yet we cannot do away ugliness.  

That is the funny side of life, yet still we can choose. Any one can choose to be beautiful. 

You are beautiful when you choose to be.

Why is ugliness unbearable? Because you don't like them.

Do you think Picasso is really beautiful ?

Leechard says:

Forgive me for asking in such a rude way. Because it is really many people who do not think Picasso is beautiful yet they selfdom deny it. 

Many were frightened by the very high selling price or the very high prestige he has got and never dare to declare that he is ugly. 

It is not only the problem of a single painter but also the total problem of our time. The Ugly had dominated modern culture. 

We can see ugliness from the following different fields: Music, Painting, Novel, Drama, and Dance.

It is very difficult to find beauty in those areas. 

And those are leading areas. All other areas, from every day dress to human behavior are affected if not misled.

Yes Picasso is ugly. And many others are ugly also. We cannot hide into the "nostalgic old songs" or "classics" to stay away from the frightening ugly domination. 

We must use our action to declare that ugliness is not welcomed in our world. We refuse to buy to see to enjoy or to accompany others to stay in front of the ugly and waste time and money to say ok for them. 

Ugliness came from greediness. 

Greediness is the worst form of materialism.

And that is the major threat in our modern world. 

When people lack the courage to standup against  ugliness, they choose to be with them.

It is not talent they are lacking. Talent is a simple matter. Talent is courage. Whenever you have courage you have talent. 

So be brave. Stand up. We need you.  

Lets move the planet a bid. Lets bring back beauty, to ourselves and to our children.

What is the most important not important matter?

Leechard says:


It is so important that if it is not well taken care of, total defeat, failure and even destruction will follow. Yet it is not important. People will not give a dime for it. It is worthless.

What is that?

It is the sense of beauty. 

People like ugly things. 

And it is a major trend of the Western culture.

At first it seemed to be a trend of anti-reason only. Music had suddenly lost all their beauty. It was firecracker, not feeling.  And Drama was puzzle. Novel was not understandable. Painting was distorted lines and color.  Yet people like them. A Picasso painting was sold recently for an extremely high price. 

And the most important event was an English marriage. The Prince married a most beautiful Princess on earth. Yet he deserted her. He had other taste for a different woman. 

Is it only a matter of "taste" only?  People's taste had changed. They like ugly things. 

Not many people will bravely say a Picasso painting is ugly as the selling price is frightening. But the world could never deny Princess Diana was a beauty. Yet the Prince did not like her. 

It is important. It is a major trend of the whole world. It is very sad not many people bother. 

Beauty is not isolated human feeling. It is same as truth and goodness. When people turned away from the brighter side of life, every thing will become dangerous. People will never feel safe again. If you had lost your sense of beauty, you will lose your sense of safety.  

Why? 

May be it is materialism. May be it is just stupid. May be it is an external way of seeing things. 

The trend is real and powerful. It cannot be denied. If there is any hope of the modern Western culture, we can only hope for the come back of Beauty. 

Come back, Diana.

Can the US defeat the NK single-handedly?

Leechard says:


You need to have friends.

You need to be honest and you need to be trusted. 

You need to behave like a wise gentleman, not a street gangster. 

Mr. Donald Trump had said he would do it alone to handle the case of North Korea.

It is true that he can. 

The only doubt is whether he can do it perfectly not letting any one of the nuclear devices exploded. It means a total failure if it is not perfect. 

It is the truth of life also. If you are not pure, you are failed. You should choose to live in the air or in the water. Amphibians are simply not human beings.

In that case, it needs a perfect plan, plus the support of friends.

And how can you have friends when you keep striking them in the back?

The Kurds case, the South China Sea case, the Taiwan case, and the Hong Kong case, were all the same. 

If you are a friend of Dalai Lama then you are not a friend of China. If you are supporting the Kurds, then you will not be able to defeat the IS.

No one is a friend if he is not to be trusted. 

The question is can the US defeat the NK single-handedly?

The answer is no.

(It needs not a Watergate to bring him down; the North Koreans will do the job.)

What if your washing machine is broken?

Leechard says:


You can either wash them by hand or take it to the laundry. 

But you can also think. Try to design something simple to wash your clothes. 

And suddenly you don't wish to have the washing machine fixed quickly. The washing machine people need 12 days to transport the machine back to the factory and another 8 days to fix it. In between I need to call them more then five times, each time I need to wait by the phone for more then 20 minutes as their phone was always busy. What? Am I living in Africa?  I knew the other brand need only 3 days to finish the job. Washing machine is a big market here. Every household just cannot do without them. 

And this is another example of bad investment. Why not put some more effort to keep your market? Or else, I will buy the other brand next time. 

However, I treasure these 20 days. I just could not stop thinking every day. I kept thinking to myself, there must be some kind of device like a piece of two feet long broomstick. Put it in the bathtub, the clothes in the tub will be cleaned in ten minutes. 

And remember, washing machine is a big business. You need to invest something and win the whole market. 

And will there be a waterless washing machine in the very near future? You will occupy all the market in the planet immediately only if you can invest enough time and patience to study and produce it. 

Meanwhile, my temporary washing machine is my feet. I put all my clothes in the tub and jump on it. I jumped only twenty to thirty times and then start rinsing. May be I can put them in a large bag, and use a motor to hang it up high and drop it down fast? Only I need to use a small computer to control the speed and length of time. I almost succeeded my invention. But they called me suddenly to send back the machine. What bad luck.  

By midnight when I was sleeping, suddenly something occurred to me. What if the water splashed the whole bathroom? Do I need to fix a splashguard? I have no sleep that night. And I was happy with a sleepless night. What good luck I have.

What is investment?

Leechard says:


I had promised to talk about this topic, however, I felt suddenly very much depressed as I heard the news that the US was supporting the Kurds to fight IS. The US will give lots of weapons to the Kurds, and they said they would have them back after the operation. Any one with a little brain will know that is impossible. They had just changed the total situation into a Kurdish nightmare for all. So I thought it is totally meaningless to talk about investment at this moment. It is only a funny joke to remember. 

Here we have a much more important topic:  Is the politics in the US a sole leadership of Trump himself or, it is a trajectory of the US culture and cannot be changed by any one politicians? As the BBC Defense and diplomatic correspondent Mr. Jonathan Marcus had said: "it is hard to see a substantial difference between the new president's approach and that of his predecessor Barack Obama. Rather, the most significant shift may be that Mr. Trump is applying the Obama recipe with more punch, more resources and greater flexibility." (Mar 27, 2017)


The meaning of this is very clear: Democratic elections cannot change the path of a nation. They are still doing the same old things. They are walking on the same old path. 

And it leads to another doubt, is the US really want to defeat the so-called IS? Or just to take a chance to defeat (or destroy) Syria and take more hard interest from the region?  

And they must have been learning the lesson from so many wars before. Arms given cannot be returned. Only that they will build another opposition force more dangerous than the IS. And now the US politicians are saying they will have the weapons back in due course. What a joke and what a lie. And what a fool. 

What is investment? 

Investment is to make use of the modern technology to do something. It is the basic behavior of human progress. By using the modern technology, you need resources. It is very common to have no resources. Resources are occupied completely. It is not easy to utilize them. However, the most important resource is yourself. It is all in your mind. You can always invest yourself into something. 

There are so many stupid investments nowadays. To invest in the Kurds is definitely wrong.
