That's an interesting perspective. I suppose we are all conditioned from birth by our schools, media etc. that "success" is the only route to a satisfactory life.
On "Living together, separetely"
Just put into an example of how I interpret this. We are told that without a college education we cannot think; that without a car we are not truly independent etc. etc. It's all very expensive model of life and we cherished these so dearly that we are willing to lose reason to protect it as a right, or so I feel.
That we must each make this success on our own from preschool to retirement. Pensions and all, we feel, every step of the way that there is some rewards system at wait to give us a treat so to speak as many like to become lapdogs of this new mentality. But have people taken it much too far and have they started to corrupt the fabric of our societies?

it is not, in my opinion by accident either, i truly believe this behavior was handed down from the wealthy eons ago. they seemed to see early on that keeping the population living in this manner was beneficial to their goals of always being in control of the masses. problem is they succumbed to the same fate from their own poison.
imagine people caring about each other and working together, not becoming angry because they or someone else made a mistake, not wanting to harm anyone who disagrees with them. imagine eh.
