Our world is run by the greed oligarchy. When they fail it will be an opportunity to rebuild society so it doesn't squander the earth's resources in pursuit of ego driven desires that always end in unhappiness.
If the government's of the world used all the money they spend on military budgets and covert activities, just think how we could supply healthcare, food and shelter for everyone around the world.

If the government's of the world used all the money they spend on military budgets and covert activities, just think how we could supply healthcare, food and shelter for everyone around the world. If we gathered all the brightest minds in the world we could innovate ways to clean up the environment and develop free energy technology for everyone.
It's all wishful thinking. Unfortunately I don't ever see it happening.

Life is too short for all of this petty nonsense we allow to get between us, all of the judgement and ego and self aggrandizement that's determining our cultural norms and ruining the lives of millions and possibly billions of people globally.
Our culture and it's people lack empathy, connection and determination. We could easily be living in a world of abundance and plenty. A world where everyone gets to eat, live in a home, sleep in a bed. A world where no thirst or hungers, where everyone receives medical treatment and physiological help.
It's not a lofty goal a but goal that requires self analysis and selfless behavior and thinking. A goal that would require you to step off of your self determined pedestal.
We can do this.
