The Root(s) of Evil (?).

Published:

I am not buddhist but I found this:

------------

Humans are animals and animals need:

Food, water and air.

Shelter, sleep.

And something to do when they are not getting their food, eating, drinking, resting and sleeping.

-----------

Humans have made their life artificial.

They could go back to living off the land, farming and hunting for themselves.

Money has made a relatively few people rich and most people poor.

Most people work to make and to keep the few rich and to keep themselves poor.

People should reclaim the land and the waters for themselves, take that away from the few rich who hold it for themselves.

Leave the cities and go back into the "Open", build farms for themselves and or for their community, eat by growing their own food, make their daily work growing their food and hunting, do away with firearms of all kinds and have people farm, hunt and fish as was done very long ago.

Grow only enough food to feed their community and fish and hunt for only enough food to feed their families, outlaw firearms and outlaw hunting for sport.

Keep the human population level down, so there will be enough land and food for all, preserve the animals and the plants as people need them.

Too many humans, also means a lot of polution, besides not enough resources for everybody.

While we don't need to go back to being cave-men, we also don't need this artificial way of life that we have now, we don't need to keep on working to keep on making a few rich and most poor, we need to work for ourselves, to eat, drink and have shelter as people used to, people and or small communities should have farms and grow their own food, vegetal and animal and also have their own drinking water and sanitation facilities, besides their own shelter, just enough shelter and food to live of, nobody rich and nobody poor, everybody just having enough to live of.

Something such as money ends-up making the greedy rich.

A lot of any kind of property makes the greedy rich, such as too much: Land, food, water, Etc.

I agree, but it would be very difficult for me to give up my artificial life if it means giving up my car, my computer or my cable TV.   Other than that, my life is pretty simple.

... from my cold, dead, hands.
The people who say 'too many humans' never count themselves among that 'too many'.
Private property is a great incentive to produce. Socialism & communism fail the people, everywhere they are tried. The only ones who benefit are the leeching parasites at the top.

Right now and for the longest time the only ones who are and have been benefiting here and every-where else are the leeching parasites at the top, no matter what the government system is and or has been.
So What else is new?
Did you think that "Capitalism" is any different?
