Scarcity against prosperirty
Hello. Nuala, and everybody!
Today I am afraid I will talk too much just to say nothing. I am going to continue talking about the comparison between some aspects of modern life and life in the desert.
We humans, nowadays, are very developed. But, does this come at the cost of our morality? Let us see.
Today, you can drive your car and achieve many different activities at different locations in a record time.
We all should be very proud of that. We have reached a point where technology helped us accomplish what once had literally considered a miracle.
Today's discussion aims only to argue that we can't seem to get a benefit in our progress without losing another.
why are people in the modern life feel more stressed out than those who still live in the desert?
Well, although I have experienced both lives, I am not sure I am the right person to answer this question.
All, what I can do is to think loudly giving you a chance to hear my thoughts and judge for yourself.
People in the desert have only few activities to decide about daily. Therefore,
they usually have the time and the patience to consider all pros and cons of all options and carefully chose the appropriate one.
On the contrary, when a person in a developed country engages in too many events, tries to accomplish too many activities and sometimes even plays different roles, like studying and working-not to say teaching and managing-, they get forced to take several decisions in a very short time and consequently they are more likely to miss the right choice.
I think ,because of the lack in cognitive abilities and the pressing activities, that each needs an immediate action; people habitually rush to act sometimes indifferently. And when they inadvertently make the wrong choice, let us say on a cosmetic operation, a divorce or a cessation of a rehabilitation program, their lives changes forever.
By the same token, I think that is why the Bedouins never resigned willingly from life. Vis, never decide , for that matter, to put an end to their own lives.
This horrible crime "suicide" has almost become a normal act in the civilized world. And I see no reason to pore in data to give you the statistics to prove it.
It is ironic that people in the developed world always praise civilization as a haven of freedom and claim that freedom flourishes only in the modern cities rather then the underdeveloped world.
In fact, the more your city develops, the more your hypothetical barriers grow. And as more rules and laws a person has to consider, his or her freedom shrinks and feel shackled all the time.
In the desert, there is a scarcity in almost everything but in freedom. People there have no rules to worry about all the time.
This is not a call for modern world to abandon its progress and go back to the medieval ages.
I am just writing this to encourage you to think differently about the world around you and to share with you the thoughts that come to mind when I try to think deeply to compare between the vary ways of life on our planet.
I am sure all of you guys can either rebuff my opinion or present an alternative analysis about this issue with more explanatory power.
I am afraid I've bored every one to death and some of you are probably reading this and say: why don't you just go and enjoy your desert and leave us a lone?
Well, that is exactly what I am up to . And i leave you with a promise to change the subject in my next entry.
But, remember people of desert, like me, do not have rules to keep in mind.
Lastly, Zillions of thanks to you Nuala for the useful advice you keep giving me. I am trying my best to get a new advice every time, by avoiding repeating the same mistakes.
Thank you all . please tell me what you guys think and have a good time.
