January 26, 2017: Life has changed. Or has it really? Equality is a very specific human quality that is very hard to attain. It would be great if humans would be open-minded to achieve equality as a group effort; however equality probably only works if humans are altruistic in nature and according to the theory, Survival of the Fittest, this is not the true nature of humans. In fact it seems that the true nature of humans is selfishness. Humans can change their natures from a selfish nature to a selfless nature however it takes years and years of constant practice; and in many cases – and in all irony – selfless acts go unrewarded. So, in humanity this element leads to a selfish society. It would be great if it was not so, however – if selfish behavior leads to power, security of ones family and a perceived safety; who would challenge that? Within a capitalist society, it is often so that the more powerful the person – the more he is perceived by the capitalist society as being a good human. Perhaps within the realm of power – there are sub-components of influence, but in the end, if a society of humans do not become true selfless individuals the element of true equality cannot be achieved. If you disagree with this, let me know. Always open to dialogue. At the same time, silence is respected as well.
