I can't understand why someone would do that to their own people.
IMO some people are more in love with lining their pockets with money(or power, if a factor here), to live well materially and be able to support
larger endeavors in the future, and for future progeny, than living in a precarious harmony with people. there are different types of people in the
there are some that will rather be played the fool, than be the conman.
there are those that would rather be the conman, than the fool.
those that would rather be left alone, to their own devices, than rely on any particular system or belief.
in todays world, to be self-centered and concerned only with what affects the individual are the order of the day.
fading are senses of honor, loyalty, treating others with respect first and either mediating peaceful resolutions, if at all possible.
it's common now to accept that someone is more apt to screw you over first, than to meet on equal ground and work together.
it's something that puts me personally at a proverbial fork in the road. Do you:
A) join the conman clan to get what you can from people first, using whatever underhanded tactics available?
B) limit your involvement in joint operations, to only those that have a greater percentage of equal trust?
C) remain unflinching in beliefs of honor, loyalty, respect first and hard personal work towards gaining what you want, so long as it doesn't cause
major injury to another person(s)?
in regards to OIL, Nuclear and Coal energy sources, there are possibly better alternatives, but with those alternatives, it may be a possibility that
those at the "top of the pile" of the aforementioned energy sources will have to relinquish some of what they loved with being at the top. they
stand to be made obsolete, or share from a shrinking pie of global necessity/ demand.
imagine being the owner/creator/shareholder of those energy companies....from the beginning you, and your family have been cared for, by the
investment in or creation of, the worldwide dependency on oil/nuclear/coal usage worldwide.
what would you do if there was a newly uncovered/or created alternative that makes previous energy sources obsolete, totally clean and CHEAP? everyone
from your family, to employees and shareholders will have to adjust to those sources being obsolete.
i wont pretend to know what alternatives that are cheap, clean and of minimal environmental risk are, but if one exists or will be created, it will
possibly knock a bunch of current energy sources off the block. and millions will have to adjust. most aren't willing to. humans are creatures of
habit. and change scares most of us. so we do what we know.
my bad, i ended up going all over the place with this......
