Your post is very paranoid, full of delusion and you are letting the darkness sabotage your life. The darkness is coming from your own perception. It is you who are filling the world with paranoia, distrust and hatred. You are looking for somebody to blame. You are projecting all your fears onto an enemy who does not even exist. Don't worry, there are many people like you. There are many people who project all their failings on to a bogeyman.
I don't believe a word of what you have written. I believe you see the world this way, but to me you are experiencing a delusion and total misunderstanding. It is very sad. Remember, it is only your life you are hurting, but I had to confront you because I saw what you are trying to infect other people with. Infection is the right word. You are doing nothing more than trying to spread a psyche virus to others. I hope they see through this.

I think the world is tainted by Western mythologies/religion. Many of the ideas here perhaps, has the taint of Western religion/mythology. You speak about truth yet maybe you take many ideas from books and stories without knowing for sure if they are true.
That said, I think you bring up important points - like that the way you live has consequences. Whether there is an afterlife or not, or whether there is a soul, the way you live has consequences in the here and now. If you are full of greed and pride, like you mentioned, you will suffer now, not just in the afterlife. To see that the way you live, or how your disposition is detrimental to yourself or brings you suffering, you only have to look at whats happening now.
As far as money being a trap - well money is important to use as a way of trading work/goods and other things of value for life. It, itself is not the evil. The evil is - corruption, deception and greed.
Life takes a lot of work. Even for people who live primitive hunter gatherer lives. Even today it takes a lot of work. Look at all the things around you - the furniture, clothes on your back, people had to make it and put work into it. Money should represent the amount of life sustaining and benefiting work you have done. That is rightly earned money. Money is not the corruption. It is cheating that is the corruption. Money that was not justly earned..
Regarding pride in education, you said "it gives people pride thinking they understand the greater universe, but the higher knowledge .. is hidden”. Perhaps the knowledge many are lacking is the knowledge of 'spiritual' well-being. They will sacrifice the well being of their selves, and trade it for pride and vanity.
