spare a dime

it bothers me how much competition is in our world today. everyone is out to destroy their opponents to get the cash or the glory. without a doubt our world is centered around currency and it can cause some people to get a little crazy when they have spent their whole life doing something. i guess what i want to say is i wish everyone could just relax and realize, we are all living the same game of life. We all know what its like to be sad and what its like to be happy, so why cant a species so advanced as ourselves recognize that difference and look to minimize the rough parts. but yet we continue to advance economically, technologically, psychologically, and any other career path the government has us on.

i guess what i am trying to say is the world has only be like this for so long, many other species with unique lives have lived before us for millions of years, up until "recently" (in the grand scheme of forever) any life on earth was filled with struggling to survive and fight for your life. now we struggle to pay heating bills because we upgraded to a better looking graphic video screen in our house AKA television. i am just bothered by the fact most of America (my home hell-hole) is oblivious by the fact that they waste money of such obscure new technology while other people on earth can barely find food everyday. if only there were safe ways to get food and supplies to certain parts of the earth. it would only take several dollars from each person in america or china etc, to help thousands of people. we can put a man on the moon but we cant get basic necessities to those who need it in the far off planet of africa?

So do something about it. What exactly is the point of preaching about this? The people who will read this and agree are probably people who nod their heads to everything and continue about their daily lives. The people who agree with you and are doing something about it ARE doing something about it right now. They're not lamenting about it to an anonymous website. Get off your ass and do something.

You know what's the one phrase I hate hearing the most? "survival of the fittest". People use this phrase as if they're proud to be among the stronger species living this earth and they think that the homeless are where they are because they're just "weak". Come on people....Listen to yourselves. People go homeless for many different reasons. Some aren't doing well simply because they're just naive. Is there seriously something wrong with that? Not everyone is lucky enough to be born smart but they still play an important role in our society. There are people who blindly follow authority like it was some kind of religion. They put so much trust in people and end up being ripped off in one way or another and sometimes end up broke or even homeless. I'm not saying we should be a communist country. It's just that living in a world where it all boils down to how smart or intelligent one is gets very old sometimes. Why can't we just look beyond that and help each other out? Instead of criticize, lend a helping hand to those who aren't as fortunate as us. If we don't recognize people for their good deeds, eventually there will be less and less of it. The society we live in only teaches us to be selfish and step on others if necessary for personal gains. There's only disasters that can come out of that.
