I live in Israel and not to sound like the whole thing I right because it obviously very wrong but you have to understand how it is here. A few years ago in the Second Intefada suicide boombers and armed terrorists kept attacking civilians (not the army or goverment buildings), things were really bad here people were afraind to go to work on a bus or shop at the mall. Only after the West Bank barrier was constructed things got better and there was some quiet time but then the Hamas (a terrorist organization who believes Israel should be destroyed) and things started going downhill again. Every day rockets were fired at Israeli cities and at civili ans and things got very bad so the IDF had to do a big operationg inside Gaza (almost the same thing happened with Lebanon later), sadly because the Hamas is a terroris organization and they fight a g uerrilla warfare they most of the time fight and fire rocket from inside the houses while keeping the inhabitant with them so the soldiers wont fire back at them or if they do it will look in the media like Israel is attacking civilians. Today while things are better there are still rockets being fired at Israel every day. 
One other problem (witch I got to see first hand because I was traveling in England the time the Second Lebanon War started) is the the media barely shows the Israeli side of the problem or casualties which causes people to hate Israel without understanding the problem. 
Now im not saying that this justifies the civilanz who got killed because there is nothing to justifie that (including kill Israeli citizans) but I hope this helped you understand the situation a little bit better (and it is much more complex then what I wrote), and that Israel or the IDF want this to happen or aim at citizans.

" @Jeust: I just want to add to the concept of human needs of contribution. You know if you donate to the poor, give blood, help others out or anything like that, you do feel good about yourself right for doing that? Otherwise we wouldn't have a need to donate or help others. You do get a benefit of doing something good for others and you feel good about yourself even if your not making any money out of it. I do say for that concept, maybe you do get a benefit out of it, you are more selfless and gets less depressed or focused on your problems when you help others, yet there is definitetly a benefit psychologically. However your right, there are even those ppl out there, who met all their basic human needs of certainty, uncertainty, importance and connection i've mentioned and they want to share. Those who hasn't, is only doing it for their benefit to feel better about themselves. I mean even with community, church, philantrophy, humanitarians, these ppl probally has enough of their needs met in life, they can share with others. Well that's my opinion anyways. "
I agree. :)  
 
But just like i said there are some good people around. So don't get all down.

@RenMcKormack: But I hear architecture is reeeally time consuming. There are no groups such as that in my campus as far as I know too.
But I'll continue to do good around me and do my best to make a difference in the small part of the world that is affected by me. 
And yeah, I'm ready to accept dicky people for what they are. I've done for quite some time.

Here is the thing.  It is important when going to college/university to see what you can do about how you feel.  If you are really upset about the violence in Israel then you are in the perfct place to learn everything you could ever know about it, and to get involved and active in political groups on campus (or start your own). Having graduated college and law school, and moved on into the working world, I feel more and more disconnected from getting really INVOLVED in something and can't let things affect me emotionally anymore because of the stresses of work.  But man, college is the place to feel like you feel now and to do something about it.  You will never have more general free time to think and philosohize again, and its an important part of growing up.   
 
Also, people are dicks everywhere. If people are being idiots in school, or do something that you don't like, then some day those people will work with you, be your neighbors etc. Its best to just take idiots for what they are, and have fun with it.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat right now. Though, in the end, my opinion on the subject doesn't really matter - the reason I feel so negatively towards everything, and allow myself to get depressed by the state of the world, is because of typical teenage negativity and skepticism. Once I'm a little older, I'll likely have completely different views on the subject. I grew up as a sheltered, homeschooled child, and now that I've reached a point where I'm forced to see the true nature of the world, it's really getting me down - understandably so. I just hope that this depression changes, and doesn't follow me into adulthood.

Save the world?
... Actually, yeah, in my early teen years. Then I realized the world isn't so simple. The actions that some people take don't have to be backed by logic or reason, so there's really no way to completely "save the world." All you can do is to march on forward toward whatever you're going for, your own ideals held high. If you're lucky, you'll make the lives of some people around you just a bit better through the small things in life.

Letting go for me it is the only sane way of being, as you can't and won't control the world around you, no matter how hard you try. Just let life slide.  
 
But there is one thing to (almost) everything in this world i believe. I might be wrong. There is a lot of deception, and probably deception in everything, but there are always shades of truth in everything too. Trying to see what is the true and what is illusion, that is for me the one of the main points of life.

I agree. I feel that "fair" is a naive concept, as nothing is truly fair. When you divide a bread in two parts, even if they are almost equally divided, one person will have with the biggest part and the other with the smallest. Fair is trying to balance and unbalanced scale, where everything has it's own weight.

" @Jeust: no, however they all have the same psychology regardless. Alot of these are fueled by our human needs. I'll explain it, we all have six human needs you mentioned one of them, certainty we need to be certain like a schedule a job. We need uncertainty or we get bored, we need signifigance to be acknowledged. We need connection with others, that explains the drinking and peer presser flirting. Also we need growth and lastly contribution like rich donating to the poor. These are universal human needs, so maybe it is as certain as i've explained it. We aren't as individualist as we all think we are, we are part of society which has social norms and we are ruled by psychology. Yes your right, not everyone has the same experiences as everyone else, they don't interpret the world the same either, that's what makes us different. However i'm mostly speaking on human needs and that can't change. The need of importance has fueled war to tyrants and power hungry war mongers. The need for connection has led to slutty women and lots of fornication. The need for growth has resulted in trying to earn money. The need for uncertainty has driven alot of us to travel, to go on a vacation. The need to contribute, means we had enough of our needs met, we can contribute. Ppl are sort of similar and not everywhere else in the world has as much as we do. Some of the world with these six human needs are very poor, their full of uncertainty, a lack of growth, a contribution to a war, ect. I hope that made sense. Maybe the op doesn't realise it these needs yet and why ppl are the way they are. With this process we have survived generations after generations because of it. The best way to deal with it is to understand it and to accept it. Maybe reframe the way you see the world, it's called a paradigm. Maybe positive thinking works, although I doubt it. Maybe accept it like I do, be a realist. Or maybe try to change things, be an idealist, you can change the way you see things. Our belif is an absolute feeling of certainty, question your belifs, make it uncertain, then questions it, maybe you can challenge it and change it. I used to see the world in a very negative way before. "

Yep, but despite those main drives there is still uncertainty. Or why can't we then predict exactly how our lives will be in a week or a month from now?  Those values are true, still each person interacts with them in his/her personal way. Different people react differently, and with that give rise to uncertainty as you can't predict how different people will act. Also reality is bigger than us and what surrounds us, and the causes that product the effects aren't always visible or accountable, which gives rise to what we can't predict, and creates the uncertainty, isn't it? 
 
I too saw it negatively, but now i cope with it, and just try what i can to make it a better place.

Just be glad you don't live in the middle east (unless you do?). That place is fucked.

 I gave up on life a long time ago so I'm probably not the best person for this topic, but what they hey I'm bored. 
 
We live in a world broken in two halves. The side where people fight tooth and nail day and night just to get a few scraps of food and clean water while avoiding rape gangs, murders and infectious disease that make the rape gangs look inviting by comparison. The other half spends their lives dedicated to finding ways to ignore the other half and to live in ignorance of their surroundings by wrapping themselves up in work, entertainment and the pursuit of earning money so that they can better insulate themselves from the rest of the world. Sure you could dedicate your life to going to these places and "helping" but even if you did it your entire life  your not making a bit of difference in the grand scheme of things. All you can hope to do is to make one day of a persons life better, but at the end of the day they are going to be right back in the same place they where the day before. 
 
Unless you work on fixing how things are ran in places then nothing will ever change, and even if you do you won't live long enough to actually see a difference because changing the way the world works on a scale like that will come at the cost of a lot of blood and a lot of sacrifices from people. Those places are literally warzones being run by thugs and gangs. The only way to bring order over there is to put boots on the soil and fight for ever inch of that land until the gangs and thugs are rooted out. But what do you do then? If a country like Britain or the US goes in there and does it then they will want to keep the land because it was their men and their weapons that went into making it safe, but then everyone around it will see it as a sign of aggression and wars will break out in other places. Even if they turn it over to the respected government in that region it will just go back to the way it was before hand as soon as they leave. Short of a world power deciding they want to take over a region and committing to the total occupation of it nothing will ever be changed.

" Yeah, I do agree that sometimes it just feels like society just gradually becomes more accepting of everything whether it be good or bad. I guess it should be that you should get used to it, but at the same time don't go with the flow. I'm not saying this is like the solution for everything or whatever, but for me, I know that going to church and being with a community that is kind and helpful and does service for others makes me feel that I don't have to go with the world. That I feel so much more happier when I refuse to do something that the world says is okay to do. That's just me. Don't give up and stay strong man. There are good people out there. "

Yeah, got it. No problem I'll handle stuff as it comes.

" As others have said, it sounds as if you were heavily sheltered, so I'm curious about your upbringing. Where are you from, where did you grow up? Did you go to a large public high school? What college are you going to? I find it shocking that you've never heard anyone talk like this before. "

No dude I wasn't heavily sheltered. We all knew what happens in the world but knew what should be done and what not. People in college now are just fucking extremely boring people who do all that stuff. It's just the amount of those people has gone up ten folds

 Like eyeing girls and talking about sexing them, alcohol, drugs, smoking etc.

Whats that?! ALCHOHOL?! IN COLLEGE?! NO WAY.  How dare people talk about smoking! Damn kids these days!  But seriously dude, you must have had an extremely sheltered life or something to never experience 'Boys talking about Girls', or anything like that. Its college, its when people do drugs and try things they wouldn't normally do. And, *Spoiler Alert*, Some people even have SEX in College.  I'm actually pretty impressed that its still possible to grow up that sheltered.    "
No dude I always knew. It's just their mentality that got me shaken up. Relax.
Btw I'm cool now

I like to think that solving any and all problems has one simple solution.

On behalf of the world I would just like to say: We don't care, you're nothing! 
 
But being all serious here for a second, though it matters not on the internet, but I agree with you but not 100%.  
This world is filled with assholes (like me!) the best thing to do is just avoid us and live your life as you want it. 
Nobody is perfect and you shouldn't try to changeo ther people when you yourself is not even close to perfect.  
 
Just live life one day at a time, take things as they come.  
Yada yada, now time to go outside and enjoy the weather
