Just A Query From Readers.

Edit: I found this video which explains exactly what I was trying to say in a better more coherent sense. Thought I wanted to share this with you guys.


My opinion of the world today is rather negative.

I see people getting excited over silly devices like a iphone over more important matter like family, society, country and the world.

Superpower wage war over non-existent WMDs (even though the intelligence agency reported NO THREAT) and the leader got away with indirectly causing the death of the soldiers in his own country, in the country where in was fought burning away cash in the form of expensive weapons used. It is like mass murder in the public view of everyone and no one actually cares...

We also have filthy rich companies concern with saving money as a result causing pollution over the environment and putting a price tag on it. IMO money can never buy back the same state it was previously.

In the 21sth Century IMO mankind has sink to unprecedented depths again...but this is worse given that it was caused by apathy not by a single country but by people all over the world.

In my country (Singapore) a lot of parents are both working neglecting kids just to get a higher standard of living to purchase useless stuff like the iphone which almost cost a laptop not to mention the exorbitant monthly subscription.

People start engaging in trashy shows and useless advertising instead of reading useful materials like books.

In my country students study just to pass exams...

Does that happen all over the world or is it just my country? What is your opinion on this?

Hi! I'm from India, and I can assure you that what you have described happens in every corner of the world.

I stumbled on your blog after my laptop got toasted due to some major corporation trying to save a few bucks... Big wonder right? Anyway you are not the only one who feels that humanity is sinking to new lows everyday. What we choose to do about it matters more.

Being materialistic is a side effect of being born in Technology. Everyone wants a bigger e-peen... But what can you do? You can't convince people that iphones are junk and that the good old 50$ phone serves the purpose... The same way you can't convince people to buy a small hatchback instead of a stupid BMW or Bentley. It is just the way we are, and IMO we are going to end ourselves with this attitude.
