Changing The World: Not Necessarily A Good Goal

The easiest way to change the world?
Go out and destroy something! Think about it. It takes a lot of work to create. Building a building takes a long time. You can burn one down in less than a day.

Also, you may actually be wrong about something. You might be mobilizing across the world, self-righteously restricting other people's freedom in order to save the world from global warming- while the globe is cooling, to boot!

The bourgeoisie myopically foster such dreams, and get quite surprised when those dreams turn into ideologies, which call for their destruction.

Meanwhile, Walmart apparently continues to change the world. Amazing what one can do when your goal is something simple, like getting low prices for your customers, rather than trying to take over the world. The humble get stuff done. The worldchangers talk a good talk, but it's questionable what lasting impression they will leave upon the world.

Well, maybe they'll run tons of documentaries on you the history channel, if you pick option one above.
