Mankind, a word always considered to refer to the species Homo sapiens, is always understood in its literal state :The Vikings , the Huns and the Goths, the tyrants of the WWII and finally the present day “Orange Presidents” refuse to read between the lines. The most socially appealing phrase in modern day politics “ For the betterment of mankind and ever-progressing humanity “ is actually a double edged blade. Mother Earth since the past few decades is witnessing a conflict of self interests between the common man ( Its our own inferiority complex that makes us common) and these self proclaimed monarchs. Their beliefs on the Theory Of Humanity clash, the republic believes that humanity is nothing but a tool , a killswitch, against oppression and a common term for anticorruption, gender equality and all the other modern day problems , while the sovereign , i believe , does not have ideals for the same. This hazy nature of the squabble, buries a bitter truth that these prevalent issues are the nodes of a spider’s web , ready to entrap our intellect and blur our emotional judgement. This web although intricate, is rather straightforward to comprehend.
Starting off with the barter system, man started conferring values on objects,introducing the idea for currency, and hence creating a firm foundation for the concept of money. This five-lettered, two syllabled word overtook discovery and invention to the top, where it governed everyone’s reputation in society and hence led to class differences. These “class differences ” are the ancestors to all forms of present day social evil. When man divided himself,it naturally set up perpetual hatred for the other classes.Hence, for the rich to remain at the top, they had to introduce a force everyone would fear, that is when they adulterated the idea of religion to their own whims and fancies. This gave birth the orthodox methods hence propagating Gender Differences. The poor(lower) classes had to exist on the borderline for life and death to make ends meet. The higher classes lured them for illegal, hence easy, service giving them financial support in return. The need for money via service, then transformed to greed, giving rise to Corruption. The fraudulent nature led to cravings for more power , man wanted to expand its reign , creating Territories, and thus more Communal Conflicts arose.
Obviously these conflicts, resulted in more aggression , which was Terrorism in its primitive stage. This nexus has been in the making since eons and its bearing its fruit in the present. This idea however dark or pessimistic, is the truth. One can ask “IS THERE A SOLUTION TO THIS ?”: Well the present state of mankind is suspended between Good and Bad. All these conflicts happening are relative to each side. All we may need is a task which has a single objective viewpoint to the problem or we can reverse engineer the entire problem altogether. And then!!! I feel that the future can hit us with the biggest Tsunami possible, all we need is unity and a selfless motive.
