Changing Attitudes!- by despicable

There are ignorant and short sighted people all over the planet that mistakenly believe that by changing peoples attitudes you can change circumstances, situations and conditions, that happen to exist at a particular point in time.
The fact of the matter is that it is circumstances, situations, and conditions that are responsible for forming a particular type of attitude and to change a particular attitude you must first change the circumstances, situation and conditions that gave birth to that attitude.
As long as their exists relationships that are by their very nature contradictory you will have a situation that can only be resolved by having a winner and a looser. Struggle of opposites is the natural way, of the way the world works. Compromise is the moderate way of postponing the inevitable. To eliminate relationships that cannot be anything but at war with each other because of their basic contradictory character, … the environment must be changed to the diametric opposite that was.
An example of a relationship that is by it’s nature a contradictory relationship is the relationship between a buyer and a seller. What is good for the buyer is not good for the seller. It is the buyer’s best interest to buy cheap and the sellers best interest to sell high. Compromise will work for awhile, but eventually a situation will arise when it becomes “it is survival of either us or them!!” The basic contradictory nature of the relationship gives rise to the attitude of “It’s either us or them.”
