(The following is a continuation of this post)
I do not have the hubris to imagine that I should ever be allowed the power to change the world–along what lines? What would give me the right to decide in what ways the world exactly should be changed? Could it be done without impinging upon the volition and autonomy of other people? If I changed the world for what I thought to be the better in one way, would I nevertheless turn it to the worse in another in the course of my own ignorance?
I think I should like to change myself, and in so doing, work with others to better the world as I can as part of a collective effort. And, in admitting there is a great deal about the world of which I am most astonishingly ignorant, to wit the fact of that ignorance being something which only the world itself could ever hope to remedy, rather than I only changing the world, I should like the world in its turn, to also take a chance at changing me.
