Loving your neighbour is the critical element here (1/2)

Recently some people are advertising for their vision of elementary education, which, in their opinion, should deviate from teaching ideals to children, while promoting "practical values" practiced by the mainstream society the children were born into, and these people accused that the price of not providing such education (or propaganda) have resulted in children growing up into angry adults who believed in equality, fairness of society and other "unattainable states", resulting in riots that disrupt the society, while laughing at the naivety of doing "futile activities" which would never have brought what the activists have wished for.

Most educated westerners would have laughed at such a naive point of view -- there are quite a number of people in the world who have been brainwashed from a very young age not to attempt to change what is actually artificial, and been told that they are not Edisons so they could not have invented something new even if they had tried.

Neither fairness, equality, artificial inventions nor freedom of speech has been brought by some law of nature; rather, they were ideals proposed by a few "naive people" and succeeded in bring out the product after a serious of failures in most parts of the developed world, Edison's team effort was considered minute compared to other achievements attained by a huge group of angry young adults (joined by more people later) working very hard wishing for a respectable return (sometimes for their remaining children as well as others') and therefore finally changing how each of their society runs.

In the past, the wealthy would engage in extremely luxurious activities which wasted away a lot of precious resources. People around the world have managed to force them to give up some of these resources to enhance the development of the greater society. This is what actually happened and written down in most history books. Not that the wealthy has become poor or devoid of luxurious entertainment; in fact, the wealthy has become extremely wealthy due to improvements in the public sector and technology unimaginable in the past has brought greater choices to the wealthy class.

人類有很多不同的屬性,有一兩種偏離正常(就當是十分之一吧)是很平常的。假設人有5種互相沒有關係的屬性,五個數值都是「正常」的機會只有一半左右。
但是如果五個數值之中,同時有三種是「不正常」的,那麼100人之中,就只有不到一人,堪稱「異界人」了。
