This question have a no-brainer answer for me: YES!
There are too many things to be angry about the state this world is in right now: violence, environment destruction, war, human’s selfishness, injustice etc. Nobody can say the world is in a perfect shape while those things still exist and human still try to find a way to devour each other.
However, the one that’s most angry me is the human’s over-persistence to their own survival. I’m not sure about the rest of the world yet, but many around me is showing this problem.
So what’s wrong with survival? Nothing! The wrong part here is the “over-persistence” part.
Human has some basic needs to survive. I trust many can name them out easily: air, food, clothes etc. However, to really be alive is much more than just that. The society has developed to a level that food and clothes are not really a scarcity sources anymore. In many places in the world right now, people are making many times more than they can eat and wear. So in these places, the basic needs are not something they really have to worry about. They may even have enough to share and feed many in other places that don’t have as much as them.
The funny part is that, many people stuck at this level of need and don’t, or can’t, move on to the next one, which means working with passion and making impact to the world. Their life just go on with having a 9-to-5 job, going home, watching TV or playing games, going to sleep, and repeat until they die. They will not have any special impact to the world. This is wrong! With each person living like that, the world lose one chance to get better. That one chance maybe the one as small-scale as a new kind of social business for one country or as large-scale as a discovery in environment protection. Whatever it is, a lost is a lost!
And that’s not the worst! Many people make their move in their work/career, but they do that with a sole purpose of filling their own pocket, with money and power, not to share or to help. For these people, not any amount of wealth or power can satisfy them. With intention like that, they will make impact to the world, but it may not be in a good way. Many problems originated from intentions like that, like bribery, war, human trafficking etc.
The world will be much better if filled with people living their passion, love and sharing!
