I guess it is nostalgic often to think of uncomplicated living.
Unfortunately, we as a species would have to evolve, to take on greater responsibilities with the gift of life. It doesn't mean that it would be so
great that it becomes unbearable, just as our ancestors who roam the wilds freely wished for more secured and better way of life.
It lays in the balance of issues that we constantly have to deal with, as we grow and mature, on how we can all achieve our common aspirations in
life, regardless if we live off in the wilds as our ancestors did, or we take the stars.
Civilisation comes at a price, and that is to sacrifice one's own need for the greater good. It does not make one a slave, for within that sacrifice
comes a beneficial return, for all would be balance up in terms of needs. For example-farming. It takes patience, effort and time, but the rewards are
great as all get to share in the bounty of harvest for a year and more, rather than dependence on hunting, which is one kind of meal and sprodic,
subject to avaliability.
Combine the 2 and no human need to starve, for once the seeds are planted, there is time to hunt.
Similarly today, our economic system is based upon cooperation by EVERY individual whom can work. We build structures and social spend upon societies,
to advance our race further up the evolutionary ladder, together as one, leaving none behind such as the mentally and physically challenged, and take
to the stars, to evolve even further, so that a BETTER way of sustainable life can be held for all.
No doubt that the drudgery of repetative works or the lack of jobs kill, but such are the imbalance caused by the greedy few amongst us. Should we
resolve such issues, mankind need not and had never been intended to slave for 365 days a year, NOT even real slaves. There is supposed free time when
the sun sets and weekends for the family.
Too bad, the greedy few amongst us had robbed us of such hours, while they enjoy every hour under the sun and moon, bloated with the money constructs
they created and cheated us humans all.
The status quo have to and will change by our generation so that the innocent next be free. ......It will be our parting gift to them. It begins with
you and me, that today knows how once human lived before it be erased from memory.......
