Interesting how humans tend to turn on one another when unhappiness prevails. Historically it could be blamed on politics and the politicians that engineer the system. Race plays a part in maintaining the dysfunction. Economics and status are equally guilty of separating the masses. And of course one could not begin to broach this philosophical conundrum without recognizing the devastation religion has played on the human experience.
As beings, our genetic similarities would most likely measure approximately 99%. The only true difference can be quantified as a result of the human eyes ability to discern various colors. In spite of our similarities human beings have in the past and continue to define each other based, first on the visual perception. It would seem however that lesser animals on the plant also live based on a similar survival mechanism, with minor exceptions for bats and moles.
We as humans perhaps should exhibit considerably more metal prowess, the opposite would seem more factual. We find ourselves in a state of constant war. When in fact historical evidence would point to the notion, that war has been perpetrated for very few reasons, natural resources, the acquisition of land, the defense of acquired land, destruction of people based on a myriad reasons and of course human nature which has an abundance of flaws. I contended the most prevalent in our existence today would be greed. On several fronts greed is destroying the very structure of our presence on this planet. The United States has spiraled into a consumer based society. Creating very little and buying what is not necessary.
Will this be the demise of this nation? Geed is in great abundance, fueling, every aspect of our lives. Does it matter? When consideration is given to the notion, that all things must end. Nations have come and gone. We now find ourselves mired in a war in a place known as “the graveyard of nations”. Germany, France, England, Russia and now perhaps the USA time will tell. One thing is certain there is a reason nations meet their demise. One thing I presume we all can agree upon. Know one knows for sure and the foreseeable future is less than bright. Also certain perhaps the oldest tactic for controlling the masses is very much in effect today…..DIVIDE AND CONQUER!!!
