    this makes me feel OK about being in the rat race… funnily enuf…

    meanwhile i will shamelessly ‘invest’ in those little shiny magpies i keep talking about… šŸ™‚

  2. Dear Baban,
    Very well written.Congrats.but it all bring us back to the basic question.Why are we here,are we here of our own free will?Who has sent us here and for what purpose?I thought Marx had found an answer but sadly it did not work.What baffles me is this retrogressive metamorphosis .Instead of a linear progress where an old system gives way to anew one,we are back to hard core capitalism.Winwood Reade calls the history of mankind as”The Martyrdom of Man” which would continue till the life support system collapses and like many other planets,man relieved of his misery.

    1. Thank you for commenting Mehmood U. Now I have to read Rawls AND Reade. šŸ™‚ I agree with you. Our current system feeds only on itself, and one day we will have eaten ourselves into nothingness.
