Existential Reality Check

Human beings behave erratically because they are ignorant about the existential reality of human life and this existence. Since the wrong concept of segregation, classification has existed in human culture for a long time, social status is yet another false idea that human imagination has invented. Once the invalid beliefs and ideas are cleared from culture and society and replaced with valid and true existential knowledge, human existence will become utopian and euphoric, forever. 

Modified Belief: Being in the moment, living it to the fullness, creating pleasing memories that you can relive is what true happiness, true success is.

4. On anger
