Lets start a revolution

I'm starting a movement to change the world. I'm not seeking attention, just change. I have come up with a name for our movement, so we can be somewhat organized. It is COTWR (Citizens Of The World's Revolution.) 
Join if you want to end bullying, insure human rights for all, and help save the envierment. We must act peacefully, but effectivly. Help the revolution of change today. I am a socialist by the way, not because I want to take your money, but because I want to help people. You could be extremly wealthy, and still be a scoialist.

Its definitely a cool idea...
But a lot harder than you probably think it will be.
Bullying needs to be stopped. But can we really stop it? The school board rarely acts when bullying is reported.
As far as human rights... That is a HUGE problem. Human trafficking has been going on... welll for a really long time. There is so much that will have to be changed to get rid of it. Child abuse is practically legal. At least here in CO so long as it doesnt leave a mark.
And many child abuse cases are never investigated.

You may change your views on socialism one day. I hear many people do. I'm all for helping and changing the world though. Good luck.

I love the idea, and i dont mean to throw it down, but what is the goal of this? Is it to get environmental laws passed? Or is it to advertise and make more social improvements?

As great as this sounds, unfortunately, I don't much will happen. Bullying has existed forever. It's not something that can be extinguished like a fire. It's not something physical that we can extract but something that is already attached to every human being. Until we learn to respect someone else's differences despite our beliefs, we cannot achieve equality, extinguish bullying, and attain peace.
Also, socialism doesn't work. I don't mind donating for a greater cause or to an organization that is creating awareness on something that we can "fix" or "patch up" with money. However, saying your a socialist and want someone's money to perhaps "fix" world problems isn't the best idea. I would also question your intentions even though they seem great on paper.
I'm not raining on your parade. I'm just saying to be realistic. I want a better tomorrow. I want a peaceful future for the next generation and for the generations of my descendants. I don't want them to grow in a world of hate just because no one is willing to respect what they don't understand, respect what's not "normal". 
I think the first step to a better tomorrow is to learn to take the criticism without lashing back. Learning to be humble. Learning to love. And above all, learning to respect the differences of each other.

That sounds just amazing. For many years, up till now bulllying , human trafficking, child abusing, dosmetic abusing, corruption and such have been around for too long.
However to make this happen we need to be in the authority, or at least a majority voices that speak louder than all those pitch darkness minds. Or even, we need to work up to climb the ladder up to the social rank  , or to start an organisation that is willing to commited and work really hard to achieve this mission.
I know it's doable and far from impossibility but presevarance, commitment , education and dedicated intergrity is very much called for.

"Also, socialism doesn't work."
Why do you say so? I know that communism doesn't work but I know that scandinavian countries are employing classic socialist policies quite effectively.

I love your idea and want to change the world, and I am totally on board, but it won't be easy.  Try your best to spread the word if you can.

You should create an account on every social media site that is popular nowadays. I'm not interested in social media, but I'm an exception- almost everyone is on their account 24/7. Coming from someone who works in marketing as their job(yes, I'm still a teen, lol), you need to cater to your audience to get the word out, you can't expect people to rave about it by them just telling their friends. It requires working the tools online to get the audience to respond in the way that you wish.

I'm all with you as far as ending bullying and insuring human rights, that is unless you use the liberal definition of human rights which is that women should be able to kill their baby if it's an inconvenience to them, g.ay marriage is an undeniable right, and if you disagree you're a hateful, homop.hobic, bi.got who hates g.ay.s and wants them to die, and splashing water on a terrorist is unacceptable. Furthermore, the environment is fine, Al Gore's global warming crisis is nonsense, and real science has proven it to be so despite what liberals claim. Finally, socialism has failed wherever it's been tried and killed 100 million people in the process. Otherwise, I'm all in.

I'm all for ending bullying, but let me spout of a list of politic rhetoric specifically targetted at demeaning you and your beliefs.
Classy as always, Mr. Extremist.
