First off, why is this in the UFO and Alien forum?
Second, you are young and have a lot to learn.
You see, nobody is telling you how to live or what to do. Instead, they are giving you a good example of what people before you existed have done, and
how they accomplished it.
There are more ways than one to do something, and you can try every single way if you wish. However, people have tried every single way (almost), and
the best way to do it is the way you are shown while you are growing up.
Sure you can skip school, teach yourself, invent something or start a business when you are old enough, then make a living on your own. But that is a
very hard path to accomplish successfully. That is why they tell you to go to school, learn things that others have discovered before you, get a
degree, and get a good job. Its the most successful path.
School) You can ditch school, and learn on your own if you REALLY wanted, however you will learn the same exact stuff, just different. You can take
the long path and rediscover all the knowledge on your own, or you can take the short path and learn what people before you have discovered. Nobody
is forcing you to believe it is all 100% accurate, they are just trying to give you knowledge that people know to be true at this moment, and you can
learn from that, and beyond that if you wish.
Money) This is a touchy subject.... Everyone has necessities that are needed to stay alive. Food, shelter, health care, etc.. If money didn't
exist we would have to provide all of that on our own by hunting, building, and learning how to heal, etc.... Sounds like a lot of "work". The
second you are born, you have to "work" at staying alive. That is a FACT.
The problem is, no one person can provide themselves with all of that, so they rely on other people to help, like family, or a tribe. However, not
everyone has the available resources to do that. For instance, food. Not everyone has enough land to grow enough crops to help your entire family
stay alive. Not everyone can take care of a large group of cows to supply enough milk. Not everyone has enough time to gather wood, and build
supplies. That is why "trading" was invented.
"Trading" helps people by allowing them to trade their available service and objects with others, so they don't have to do everything. Since I
can't get enough land to grow crops, I will just stick with my cows and milk. When I need crops I will trade my milk for some crops. However, what
if the crop owners don't need my milk? What then? How could I get their crops? I would have to trade something else... That is why "money" was
Money is like the universal trading note. It is milk, crops, wood, labour, all in one little ticket. That way I can trade my milk for money, and my
money for crops, and the crops guys can trade the money for whatever they need..... That is why money is a good idea, and necessary.
Of course, money turns people evil, and greedy, because humans want everything and to be lazy, and live in luxury. It's manipulative and can be
traded for almost ANYTHING, including life for some people. Money is not the real problem, it is PEOPLE.
Government) To some, government is the root of evil, however it isn't all evil. Government is needed. Without government we wouldn't have laws
that help protect most of us. People would steal and kill for all your milk and crops and stuff without a second thought. That is why we have law
enforcement which is run by the government. Sure people still do it, but more people would do it if it wasn't for government.
Also, without the government, nobody would want to waste their crops and milk and labour and all that to make roads, and take care of roads. They
wouldn't want to waste their hard earned resources on stuff that ALL OF US share.
That is why we pay taxes. We collectively pay the law enforcement to take care of us. We collectively pay for the roads that help us get around. We
all come together as ONE, to pay for our necessities. Sounds better when worded like that doesn't it?
The government isn't a large group of people who want to kill us. No matter what brainwashed you to think so. The government is made up of a bunch of
people like you and I. However some of them want to make money, because they are greedy, so they try to get positions of power to help their agenda.
Most of them are already rich and have everything they want, and that makes them different than normal people, but not all of them are out to kill
The majority of "government" are law enforcement people, and military people. They actually want to help people, and get rid of evil. The rest are
people who work for corporations that just want to make more money off of you. Sure some of them want to control the world, but they are never going
to be able to do that, ever. Most parents can hardly control their own kids...
Humanities Achievements) The reason for these achievements is to make life easier. Why dig a hole with a shovel when you can use a tractor? You can
get more work done for less. In crops and milk and labour terms, this is a good thing for all of us. Of course humans create things that hurt
others, that is human nature. I too wish we could destroy all guns, but then we would lose the best way to hunt for food, and protect us from thiefs
In this life, there are smart people, dumb people. Good people, evil people. Greedy people, selfless people. Healthy people, sick people. Leaders,
followers. Creators, destroyers. Godly, and Godless. Enlightened, unenlightened. Young, and old.
To fix all of the above you would need organization. This is why "religion" was invented. To get everyone to understand the same "way of life". To
give people morals and guidelines to live and act by. To discipline their selves, and their family. Most religion is about love, and kindness, and
despises theives, and killers, and greed, and all that which we dislike. Religions also try to include a general belief of what our universe is about
and how it started. Not from the imagination, but from what we know to be true.
Sadly, it is hard for people to agree on one "way of life" so that we call and "just get along". So multiple religions are made. Sadly, some
people don't like anything about religion, so they don't learn the same morals and guidelines that everyone else does. Thank God for government, or
we would be in real trouble with morals and guidelines.
It's all about the people and their thoughts and beliefs.
People dedicate their lives to making the world a better place. Besides posting on a forum, what are you doing to help? Are you teaching people? Are
you protecting people via law enforcement? Are you helping people in hospitals? Are you setting a good example?
Don't worry about the government. More people enjoy all that is good, than people who enjoy evil. The "good team" is much larger than "evil".
Someone once said; "The real sheep are the evil people, and they are surrounded by a pack of good wolves".
With that said, I want you to know you have a good head on your shoulders. You can see that people are more concerned with material things, and not
each other. You can see the decline in the quality of people. I agree with many things you say. You are one step closer to enlightenment than many
Just know this... through science you will learn that ALL objects, all matter, all things, all of everything, is made of the same energy. Everything
is connected, and everything effects everything else (butterfly effect). The total of ALL things equals ONE. You are a small part of ONE very large
universe. YOU ARE the universe. Nothing will ever or can ever destroy you. The universe evolves in ways so that it can sustain itself. Everything
happens for a reason. You have nothing to fear but fear itself.
