Humanity In A Simple Analogy

Humanity In A Simple Analogy

Imagine children playing in a sandbox full of toys.

A couple of them decide that the toys are theirs, and put
barriers around them, telling all the other kids that they
must earn these little pieces of leaves that will grant them
access to the toys.

The parents observing the situation would most likely intervene
and remind the children to share and be kind to one another.

Now imagine children on a big blue playground featuring an
abundance of vegetation, animal life, oceans, lakes and rivers.

Although the playground is set up for everyone to play,
explore, create and share as equals, some of them decide to
play gods and take possession of whatever land or resource
they come across.

They then make up a brilliant game: A hierarchical system
in which they are the supreme authority while others have
to abide by their rules if they wish to survive.

In this game, resources become accessible only under the
condition of money, which is earned only under the condition
of work.

As this hierarchy becomes pervasive across the entire playground,
that which was once sharing, creativity and play becomes work,
competition, greed, fear and survival.

The people of the playground do not recognize each other
as playmates and co-creators of the same human family
any longer, but as strangers, competitors and even enemies.

There may be no parents watching over the playground,
reminding all children of the earth to simply share and
live in harmony with one another, but there is a growing
heartache felt across humanity that is calling for change.
