Yeah, I've seen the same arguments. I recognize the logic.

"It isn't trivial, easy, simplistic."

Give me your version of what to do.

Remember we live in multicultural cities of many faiths.

What is it you want to do, and what would be the first step.

Maybe you do, but I do not. And I think there are faith systems people just don't declare. Such as faith in lies and deception. Most of the history of religion hasn't been based on truth at all, it's been based on parents educating children and children being extremely loyal to what they learned in their childhood.

It's exceedingly rare for a mature set of adults to create a new system and institute it. Jonestown comes to mind, so does Scientology. But these approaches are more about cult to a specific book or personality - but that could also be said of classic religions.

You seem confused, I'm not selling anything, so there isn't anything for you to buy. You, however, are posting here selling the idea that "everything is bullshit I don't agree with" and a hate-filled reactionary reply attitude.

You seem to really like to label discussions bullshit as fast as you can! It's the first word in your post, and the last in your replies.

This is the mental health forum. You're not adding any information on how to create anything, but what you happen to think the self is.

It's just out there. It doesn't have anything to do with anything in real life except for your idea of what a self should be.

Tell me how to help people. That's the game.

the part about what to do, in terms of activism?

You need to tell collectivist what you want because they need to build that world for you.

I'm getting from you a subjective opinion on who to be. But I have no idea how you expect to have that manifest in real life for the people ... who mostly live in big cities.

That fact that you say you don't in cities, and think it's just about being who you want to be outside of culture, leaves everyone else behind.

I have a city to worry about.
