Why do we live in a world where money is put before people?
Hi, I’m pretty new to this site and have noticed it’s full of smart flutherites. I’m only 15 so sorry if I have trouble really expressing my ideas. Well anyways, as I grew older this thought really kept tugging me, sort of like this isn’t how things are supposed to be.
Why do we almost always put money before people? If you really think about it, it’s is the cause to almost all of our problems, (global warming, the not so great health care.. etc) and it bothers me a bit how everyone actually likes it this way. We are replacing love with money (sorry to sound a bit cheesy but really think about it) we have made it so that money is what makes the world go round (which really doesn’t make the world go round at all!) There is so much greed in the world, so much hate, violence, people just don’t care about anything anymore unless they get their money. And when anyone tries to point out this problem someone has to yell ”communism!”
Is this really how we wan’t to keep living? We have to shatter this illusion that some of us are better than others, nobody is better than anybody no matter how much money you have. This isn’t going to work forever.
Why do we always have to divide people in so many ways, we think of each other as separate, why can’t we treat each other like neighbours? Agghh I don’t want this to get too long. You might think this is all silly but this is what I think. This is what I feel. The reason I shared this is to see what you think, and I know that many other flutherites have some great ideas to share also.
