ITS NOT HUMAN NATURE, ITS CAPITALIST NATURE.
I do not believe it is human nature to want to be above others in society. Animals like to be above others, like to win territory and of course humans are just nothing more than advanced animals. However the key term there is advanced, if we are as superior as we like to think to all other living creatures on this planet surely we could work around this and be more genourous, acting in a more ‘I want to see what I can do for you’ rather than ‘If I’m doing this how much are you paying me’ attitude.
There is a saying ‘money is the root of all evil’ it really is, but it is nothing more than paper, and it grows in trees, it is us humans that give it value and purpose. It is because of money that people need to be repressed because if money was the answer, we could just print it countlessly and give everybody enough, but then this wouldn’t work because nobody would do anything. We need money as a motivational item to make us strive to produce goods and services that we rely on. However most of these goods and products that we so dearly need are nothing more than materialistic, they give us a false sense of temporary happiness, all man really needs is food, water, and something to do.
Capitalism revolves around people making profit, but there are little workers in that team that allow that person at the top to make all the money whilst they work ten times harder but do not see the rewards, we say Capitalism allows a means to survive to the lower classes but why do they not see the benefits that the person at the top of every business sees? If we did not live in this materialistic Capitalist environment the person at the top would not need all that money as it would be pointless, as we would only need money for the basics of survival. therefore the money would be shared out more equally among everyone, after all we all have something we are good at, just because one person has an idea, another person who works hard to make that idea happen should be rewarded equally.
