    Don't stand there wringing your hands, get on with doing something about it.

    Don't sweat on perfection, don't worry about not succeeding or about being embarrassed, just kick in and act.

    Think of it as justification by good works. There's no shortage of good works waiting to be done.

    Man alive, is it that you don't want to hear? You by all your good works are not going to resurrect anyone. (Many people have died from viruses. Plus.) When a person dies, the funeral costs can be quite hefty. The family suffers usually to pay the way. Among other forms of suffering. No matter how many good works are done, the reality remains.
    Yes -- it's nice when people help people. But no use wringing hands, according to you about all those who died in the fires so far, right? It's just -- ah -- too bad, I suppose some might say, while they're glad it didn't happen to them.

    You're not going to solve mankind's problems. A lot of people that want to do the good works you talk about are not going to solve mankind's problems. Now why is it, do you think, that a simple enough thing like paving the roads properly can't be done? Not enough people like yourself to get it done properly? Literally lives are at stake. So why can't it get done? No hand-wringing here -- just how about being honest?

    There's already enough whining in the world to fill the quota many time over.

    Facta non verba, as the Romans are said to have said.
    Neither is anyone else. The dead have had their time and are dead. We mourn them if they're ours, but the game is about the living.

    Think globally, act locally. We each can make a difference, but it starts by wanting to and doing.
    Round my way it's done and done well. Maybe you should want to elect better political leaders and be willing to pay sufficient taxes.
    You're really determined to defend your right to ***** about things instead of working on solutions, eh? Have a nice day.

    Excellent deduction.

    You too, have a nice day, and watch out when the waters rise on the coastline cities and countries due to icebergs melting, hope all the good resources from people can stop the situation. :) In areas where coal mining is a main industry, nobody really cares about the ruination of the earth. And few care about oil spills (stopping them before they start), but many do-gooders come out to wash the birds once it happens.
    Best to you. As for myself, common sense tells the situation is -- hopeless according to man's dealings. Washing a few birds and maybe giving a few dollars to a homeless person is nice.
    Anyway, have a good evening.

    If I were not to tell the truth about the reality of the "world," I'd be playing games. Like you.

    The "her" refers to "Babylon the Great." They are one-in-the-same. Both refer/mean the World Empire of False Religion.
