Post-industrial evil

   Sometimes I hate the world for the injustice that takes  place in it. We are very much civilized, yet it’s sometimes hard to notice. I wonder, how can there be so much pain, hatred, hurting, ignorance, poverty, suffering in a world where we have cures  for so many illnesses, educated people, rules,laws, organized governments etc. I just don’t understand the indifference which happens on an everyday basis. I guess the money-making mechanisms exclude emotions, feelings and humanity. We live together, yet try to separate ourselves from others as much as possible. I think it’s mainly due to our selfishness. It’s probably best to take action, not moan about it, but sometimes I can’t help to wonder about the “evil” in the world and where it comes from. Gandhi said it the best- “You must be the change you want to see in the world.” The hardest part is to be aware of the wrong you are doing, when you’re doing it and not after you’ve done it. Also, it’s hard for me to stand that, I’m not causing the poverty, suffering and pain (I am the change)yet it exists(and the change isn’t in the world).It’s such a long process maybe even never-ending, because  evil may be inevitable.

Extremely unwanted

A tragic accident has happened recently in Poland. A 22-year old girl announced that  her child had been stolen. Soon after this it turned out that she had dropped her baby on the floor, it died and the mother hid it in somewhere. Terrible, horrible, unbearable.
