We haven't had a discussion topic that focuses on suggestions on how people can better themselves and improve themselves, REGARDLESS of religious association. I'm hoping people would be willing to leave their religions (or non-religious) associations outside of this thread, and focus on suggesting and recommending ways to become better human beings (as well as discussing them). I doubt this thread is going to go anywhere, due to people's loyalty to their associations (religion, atheism, agnosticism other otherwise), but I thought I would try. I am sure everyone wants to better themselves, so I'm hoping this thread would serve as a discussion medium to share ideas how we can be better. I was watching a re-run of Jerry Springer, about people in the KKK clan. Though the KKK clan and the Nazis are extreme examples, at the end of the show, Jerry Springer said one phrase that I believe should be the focal point of all of us, being human: It doesn't matter what religion one follows, or the lack of following a religion altogether, it all comes down to being able to compassionately work for each other.
