You might initially be surprised to see a post about gunsmithing on a site devoted to humanism and environmentalism. After all, don’t guns create more problems than they solve?
That all depends, really, on your view of humanism. My belief is that humanism can teach people about the correct way to use tools in their lives, guns included, to make the world a better place.
Back to my gunsmithing example, if people knew about the art of gunsmithing, I believe that guns would be viewed differently. Instead of being viewed as a tool for bloodshed and destruction, guns would be viewed as an art form; they would be seen as beautiful, handcrafted pieces of art that serve an important purpose in our history. I truly believe that what is necessary for great change in our world is not a complete shift of the resources we have available, but instead a mental shift in the way that we view those resources.
