  • Nope, I care more about myself than I do about the world and don't care what happens to majority of the humans on this planet. Unless it benefits my life and changes it for the best I might but if I don't get anything in return then I'm not.

  • I had a feeling you were Japanese so I checked - Yeah there is a touch of eastern philosophy there in that question many eastern religious strictly follow - I feel about this question that you won't know the answer till you are tested - Would I intentionally suffer for the sins of others like lead a life of self inflicted torment, I don't think I am that good - In a spur of the moment or present time, could I be pushed into doing something like going into battle for a righteous cause knowing I will probably lose, here it is I like to think so but I don't know - The distinction I am trying to make is between the very admirable people who dedicate a life to help the spirituality of the world and those like soldiers or campaigners who respond to a situation who I hope are the majority of the people that are left. I am going around in circles a bit to answer your question, I honestly don't know - I faced some things in my life and was genuinely quite surprised how I overcame them so I would be optimistic I might do it but I would have to totally believe in the cause.

    • True.. The world needs more good people.. I'm not religious in the modern sense myself, but my view on life brings me to adore the notion of martyrs and "saviors".

    • Thanks for MHO

  • At this point in time- Yes. Things may change when I'm older; so I make no guarantee.

    My first thought was my family. My sister and my cousins came to mind first. Cousins - 2 adorable little boys who are always smiling and laughing. One of them has the brightest and bluest eyes I've ever seen.

    When he laughs and smiles, it melts my heart. <3

    • The image is taken from a documentary "Jesus: Rise to power". But it's not what I based the question off. It's something I would love to do myself, if it were possible. Martyring the world.

  • Jesus already did for us.

  • Any other time I would say yes.
    But then again look at where the world is today. It keeps getting worse and worse, people are doing very harsh tings and others only care about themselves.
    So, is it really worth saving?

    • I was way worse in the past...

    • @OrangeBoy Worse than what? The world or people?

    • The people. The world was a clean one.
      Choose any era, it will be worse for you to live, overall.

  • Yes, I believe I would... I mean I hope I don't have to find out but if I had the power to save the world why wouldn't I do that? If I had the power to even save one person, why wouldn't I? The unknown doesn't scare me and neither does the pain because I believe it will end when I die... so I just gotta bite down and bear it until I get there. There is always an end but mine would serve a purpose... that's a good way to go.

  • It depends on my mood and how well I know what will happen. I don't think I would suffer that much for other people. No. You only get one life. Out of 7 billion people, there is bound to be a couple million willing to die for the sake of the rest. But I'm not throwing my only life away. Perhaps that is the reason the world is as shitty as it is. But, in the end, I'll choose me over other people every time. I'm just a bastard, but at least I admit it. Unlike most people who are bastards and don't admit it or actively claim to be good.

    Then. The only reason anyone does anything is for a benefit. To actively risk themselves for the sake of billions. I mean. If they were going to be killed, they would not remain around in order to reap the benefits of seeing "Look what I did."

    And then. That's easy as fuck to say. People get romantic. How many would actually do it? They're probably just delusional. They *want* to believe that they are that good of a person, but when the time came, they would choose themselves, as well, 90% who say yes.

    Naa. I'm not going to suffer for fucking anyone.

  • Since it's very unlikely to that scenario to happen, and given that it's a surprise question made to me... most likely not... but with time, if i knew i was so damn relelant on history... my brain may get used to it and accept the fate.

    • Rather, they slowly begin to feel hatred, greed and stuff like that again.

    • If it erased it yes, if they simply slipped back into the payoff is hardly worth it.
      How long would it take to slip back into it?

  • Nope, my personal life mantra is focused around my personal happiness and to make a positive impact on the world.

    I will NOT sacrifice my now happiness to positively impact the world, however.
