Thank you , you make good post yourself That true that educated people are also *manipulated* by publicity.
After reading the latest post i have one thing that come to my mind. I agree on many comment but only in part to other. But on top of that, i think we should talk about our society value, they are more and more related to money, competition, performance. Those value are right now at their top (i hope), and that do not look good. A professional baseball player is paid milion to play??? A big company president receive million because he successfully cutted expense... by cutting 500 job to give them to under contrator that are paid less or simply replaced them by new technology.
Publicity, music clip, movie etc... are showing us a life of pleasure and facility... scientific advancement that supposedly improve our quality of life and it do but only if your lucky enough to have money and not been born with some disease or had drug abuser as a mother etc... It s great if your born in a environment where your development is promoted but even this case you call fall in drug abuse etc.. just look at how many star did.
But hey!!! we can do better than that, but guess what need to change first... Capitalism and value behind it...what about to focus on human quality of life... over all, and to care about what really exist... human exist, money don t, economy don t. Im not against progress, but what is progress, is it only technology progress??? I don t think so. How hard is it to be born poor in a world of luxury. I can understand why some people act poorly (having a big tv screen when poor etc..) They are bombarded with publicity that make them think they need this brand of cloth or the big tv screen to be *IN* and this kind of (we can call it brainwashing) is very effective since it s start when your a little kid. It s like religion, you learn them when your a kid, your partly *builded* by it.
About education now, ive seen some documentary showing the Japanese education system, and i must say it s horrible. It s only about performance and productivity, kid are so stressed by mother, father, teacher and general social pressure that when they fail a test, they are completely destructed, desperated, some commit suicide for that
And the situation of many is not better when they start working, lot are considered like being a robot and are insanely brainwashed at giving their *soul* for the company. In the documentaryi have seen, they interviewed a young adult japanese women, she talking about the bad situation of men, worst than the situation of women in is view, they work with high level of stress for insane level of hour. What about distraction, time for family... time to live??? Im speaking of the worse, you may say, it s not like that everywhere in Japan.... your probably right but it s not only a minority that are in this situation. And other country have started to imitate them, since they need to remain competitive to be good capitalist....
Capitalism is kinda a never ending Wars system builded around money system. How many people died because of this horrible system... millions, how many suffered because of it.... billions... including war made for money related reason....to serve their interest . Capitalism is not the greatest of system it s not better than communist was. Russia is not better now than they where when they where communist, Mafia and other criminal have raised their activity, more drug more prostitution, violence etc... retired old people that loosed their goverment menetary help after the end of communism, i have also seen that in tv documentary. Some already insufficient social help disapeared with the communism.... and the capitalism did not replace it by something better, just nothing replaced it
And im not saying communism was good, i say Capitalism is not really better overal,l in some area it can be better in others it s worse. But strickly about the word, communist is better than Capitalist. Communist refer to community (in common) and Capitalist refer to capital (money, to make money, to have more).
The last but not the least, a tremendous lack of love are behind lot of our human trouble. Im not speaking of love related to 2 person, i speak in general. Lack of love is everwhere, usually money interest go first just see what happen in the world actually. People are ok to spend billions to kill other, but not much to help. One example, a natural disaster occur in a poor country, the country is devasted. Some country help but not with the same amount of money or effort than they do for wars.... because they think they have nothing to gain out of it. Poor X country people are starving to death... bah who care they have nothing interesting.... you see what i mean????? Your not rich, your have nothing im interested at, then i don t care about you.
Here was some of the reason why i don t like capitalism. Id better like a system that is more *in common* that raise the quality of life of all people not make them fight each other for a better life.
