Suffering causes us to change our memes.

 

Suffering is an indication that something isn’t working.

 

Mass suffering is the drive for social / cultural / political revolution.

 

Suffering drives us to find solutions that work.

 

Ignorance is believing that using utopian ideals to design a new system will release us from our suffering.

 

The Industrial revolution is a good example of how a new system evolved that worked – without utopian ideals to design a new system.

to suffer is to seek away out of such suffering for your self as well as for others. I personally  learn from mistakes and when suffering I certainly seek to find a way to relieve such suffering, which in in turn  betters my state of existence.

if you look at history you will see that nietzche is right.

vaccines, GE Foods, solar/wind power, space exploration, social/cultural revolutions, pasteurization, evolution.

I've always wanted to respond to Nietzsche. I guess my opportunity is now: Whatever else it may provide, it should also be said that great suffering produces, well ... great suffering.

Friedrich Nietzsche   

I have given a name to my pain, and call it "dog".

Friedrich Nietzsche 

The discipline of suffering, of great suffering - do you not know that it is this discipline alone that has produced all the elevations of humanity so far?
Comment by Dustin Mark Rogers on April 13, 2011 at 1:45am

 Friedrich Nietzsche   

The Christian resolve to find the world ugly and bad, has made the world ugly and bad.
