Introducing loveistheanswer

I would like you to take a step outside of the world of computer games and virtual games for a moment and consider the world around you. As you know, there are many problems in this world. Problems that affect you, me, and everything alive on this planet. I like to think that the world is a naturally good place, full of good people with good intentions. However, it could be much better. Political, social, environmental, economic, and cultural injustice exist to much too high of a degree.

Many of these problems that the world faces are huge, and to think that a single person such as yourself and yourself alone can find solutions to all of them is entirely unreasonable. That being said, you and I can make a difference.We have the power (and the responsibility) to use at least a part of our time on this planet to make the quality of life better for all who inhabit it.

However, what does making a difference mean? We can’t be expected to spend our lives committing prodigious acts of selflessness. We have no reason to be ashamed if we don’t have the time to travel the world helping those in need. Instead, we are left to donating money to those who do have the time. We are able to use only our financials to donate to charities and do good for the planet.

However, what if we don’t have the financial means to donate to a charity? As youth, most of us don’t have much money as we haven’t yet entered the working world.

We may not have the money, but we do have the creativity and the altruism. Through this platform of Club Penguin Armies, I’ve met, over my years that I spent as a part of them, hundreds, if not thousands, of incredible children and teenagers. People who are young politicians, who are graphic designers, who are entrepreneurs, who are writers, who are artists… people who are leaders yet also understand how to be a part of a vibrant community. People who can change the world. YOU are one of those people.

Of course, you’re likely asking yourself “how?” How can I change the world? How can I use my talents to make a difference?

I would like to introduce loveistheanswer, an organization that addresses just that.

loveistheanswer, created by a friend of mine, Ian Watt, provides a platform for young artists, writers, and thinkers that want to use their talents to do good in the world, by promoting their work and connecting them with other like-minded people. However, I will let the organization talk for itself. If you have 15 minutes, please watch the below video. It will change your life and, in turn, the world.

 

Make sure to check out their website if you’re interested:

The idea behind loveistheanswer, as I see it, is that only through complete knowledge and connectivity between all life on this planet, can all of the worlds problems be solved. Sure, money and politics are powerful and can make a difference, but they are just products of our civilization, and therefore can only do good to a certain extent. If we truly want to live in a world with no major problems, we need to have knowledge of those problems. Take the example in the video, human trafficking, a huge and awful disruption to happy and peaceful life. What if everyone in the world was aware of this problem? Every citizen of each nation, every powerful politician, every billionaire with a giant checkbook? I believe it would be absolutely impossible for the problem not to be solved. With 7 billion people living on this planet, there would be enough people that would want to do their share and solve the problem of human trafficking once and for all. The problem now is not that there aren’t enough people in the world who want to make a difference, it’s that there are not enough people who know about the problem.

The question simply is: how do we educate the world about a problem? And the answer, just as simply, is through our creativity. Through film, through painting, through social media, through writing, through graphic design, through acting, through poetry, through music, through dance, through sports, through photography, through web development, through fashion, through any sort of creative talent we may have.

I know the viewers of this blog are exceptionally creative and intelligent members of our planet. You all have your own talents, so why not take some of your time to use them for good? Here is all you have to do:

  1. Pick a talent. (Writing, graphic design, photography, …)
  2. Pick a problem. (Human trafficking, poverty, hunger, …)
  3. Create and share.

And if you need some help sharing your creation or finding inspiration, that’s what loveistheanswer is for. Submit your organization to loveistheanswer and it will be displayed on their website for others to view, support, and give advice on. Similarly, you can view others organizations and projects to get inspired!

loveistheanswer was just launched recently, but already has gained a lot of momentum. It’s being supported on many levels and has already gained a large following. Do your part to support this ingenious up-and-coming organization!

If you have an idea for a talent, problem, or both you would like to address, take a few minutes to Submit your thoughts. If you don’t, it would still be great if you could follow the organization on FaceBook, Twitter, or at least check out their website and leave a comment to let them know your support.

Let’s use our creativity to make the world a better place!

  6. “loveistheanswer” epitomizes utopian idealism. The world would never be this uniform. Humans naturally have contradistinct inclination and goals. Even suggesting this, no matter how well intended, comes off as tyrannical. Some people are apathetic or enjoy reveling in the leisure of life, and there’s nothing incorrect with that lifestyle. It seems wrong that society glorifies works of altruism while, concurrently, demonizing selfishness when it’s an inherent animal instinct to prioritize one’s own survival. It’s basic Darwinism-survival of the fittest. It seems like such a monstrous notion, but it occurs everyday in nature and no one sheds a tear. We’re animals, and it’s human vanity to say otherwise. Anything but contradicts the natural order. And even altruism is fueled by selfish motives of expelling guilt. Simply, it makes you feel better knowing that you helped another human being, and that’s selfish ( because you’re doing something for yourself-if you can follow that logic). With that, you can make the argument that altruism doesn’t exist, but that’s a different debate. All I’m saying is that guilt is superfluous in this context.
    That’s why I don’t get this post.
    I rambled a bit.

    • My thoughts exactly. loveistheanswer, no matter who participates in it, isn’t something to help others, but to help our own self esteem by helping others. And also, everyone has a different idea of what is a problem and what is not, because of their religion, culture and country they grew up in. For example, some people would say that countries not educating women is a problem, while others would say that it’s completely fine.

      I’m not saying this program is terrible and should be shut down, but you should be aware that there are definitely some flaws.

    • I do not agree that selfishness is singularly human nature. I believe it is human nature to survive on this planet. It is impossible to survive on this planet without working together with other humans and other life.

      I agree that most of the altruistic cliches “you’re privileged to you have to do something to help others” and such are not addressing the basic human spirit, but I disagree that saying altruism itself is simply against human nature.

      Helping others is not fulfillment. Living in harmony with this planet is fulfillment, and, to do so, it is necessary to work with and help others.

      • @Owen I never said selfishness was a distinguishing human characteristic. I meant that surviving is the utmost priority of any species or individual. No fabricated, self-made aspirations can take precedence over it. Altruism isn’t necessarily against human nature, because we conceived the notion of a selfless act, but it does go against nature. Humans are a bit more complex in that we do things that don’t fundamentally perpetuate our being. Human coexistence can be, again, accredited to our innate instinct of survival-just like how wolves hunt in packs.

        • Yes, in the days of our earliest existence, altruism did go against our basic instincts. However, with the agricultural revolution came specialization and individuals who were able to produce more than others, and be better off. With this creation of an unbalanced system came less fortunate individuals and the need for charity. Yes, if the human race continued to live in a balanced system, altruism would likely not have a need to exist. However, for some unfortunate reason, we are not like other species and have instead decided we’d prefer to live in a, shall we say, capitalistic world.

          I’m sure there’s a much deeper discussion we could be having here, as you are essential taking on the idea of charity.

          • Aspirations of wealth fuel innovation, and much of everything you enjoy(being the by-product of capitalism). If everything was leveled and handed to you on a silver platter then lethargy would run amok. You would have to offer an alternative, but just as potent, incentive. It is an unfortunate reality, but necessary. A tipped scale is requisite for the world to keep on turning.

  19. Humans instinct is to survive, and we need money to survive nowadays. We work just to get this money to survive. We give because we try to feel good, but that means we are giving someone a better chance of survival. Those who are poor, bad luck. Unless you can jump up, they are stuffed. Rich are lucky, and most of them are greedy, because hey know they have everything to survive. Loveistheanswer is a good program to share people’s work, and you should try and add more things.

  22. Selfishness is not necessarily human nature..we are capable of giving our own lives to save another. We may select a scenario such as a little girl is at the store with her mother, the mother receives low pay grade and can only afford that which they need for survival. And regular human necessities;the little girl sees a toy she likes however realizes that her family cannot afford it so she does not even mention the toy to her mother. In most situation a child would cry and throw a tantrum, however the little girl remained content and went home with her mother. Selfishness can be the desire itself that is very true,however when you realize that she did not need the toy and that money must be spent on other things she demonstrated benevolence. And that is far from selfishness.
