What is the opposite of the word "problem"when defined as "an arrangement"?

I suspect that word would be, "Solution."

Is a solution an arrangement?

Yes sir.

The best arrangement that ever could be.

How can the definition of problem be "an arrangement" the opposite of problem be a solution and a solution be "an arrangement"?

What kind of logic is that?

Then I would suspect it is a matter of perspective.


Yes sir, it is.

Because I suspect that a problem is only defined as a problem relative to the person perceiving it to be a one.
It is my understanding that it is a matter of perspective relative to the person precieving the given situation.
But I could be incorrect.

I also suspect that a solution is only defined as a solution relative to the person who has deemed it to be a one.
Once again it is a matter of perspective relative to the person precieving the given situation.
But I could be incorrect about my analysis of this situation also.


Is White Supremacy(Racism) a problem or is it a solution?

Thank you for the analysis and the conversation. The definition of problem and solution suggested is ambiguous at best. I'll stick with the initial one of "anything unbalanced" until I come across another one.

It is a problem because it produces imbalance. Racism (white supremacy) does not produce "balance between people" nor does it produce "balance between people and things". "Anything unbalanced" is a problem.

Thank you for your response.

How do you define the word "balance?"

"Balance" is a word...a way of saying "justice" or "just" in reference to justice. It may even be better to define "problem" as "anything unjust" or "any non-just speech and/or action".
