As to why not try to figure out some of societies larger issues, you could ask anyone that question. Some people spend their time contemplating who will win American Idle, or who will win the basketball tournament, or just mindlessly watching some TV program or sporting event. Why do those things rather than trying to solve society’s larger issues? Just because I choose to spend my free time reading books about philosophy and contemplating my existence rather than mindlessly watching TV for hours a day doesn’t mean that I should have any less right to spend my free time as I choose.
I support your right to choose how you spend your time. Like I said, I dont necessarily believe that we shouldn't question our origins etc, This is more of an idealistic statement based on the need of an Idea/ thought more than the personal quest. Sort of a consequentialist view on thought alone. What would accomplish the greatest good?
