What Is The Source Of Our Troubles?

The rich blame the poor, and the poor blame the rich.

The blacks blame the whites. The whites blame the blacks.

The Liberals blame the Conservatives and the Conservatives blame the Liberals.

Christians blame Atheists and Atheists blame Christians.

Arabs blame Jews and Jews blame Arabs.

Men blame women and women blame men.

The young blame the old and the old blame the young.

And so on and so on and so on.


This is a bit of a broad scope, non topic specific question. So it's open to be discussed however you best see fit to interject your $.02.

So what is the root cause of all of our worlds problems? Why is it that everyone, ranging from the factory workers upset over working conditions to Israeli's blaming the Palistinians over the land-always blame someone else?

Or what about the man who stole the BMW, and as a result of the inevitable police pursuit-totalled the car, and killed three pedestrians-and received a 400 year prison sentence-blamed everyone from the cops to the owner of the BMW to his bad childhood? Why did he blame everyone but the person that actually did the deed-namely himself?

Why does no one ever seem to look in the mirror as the source of trouble?

Why are we always blaming someone else?

What is the underlying root cause, which despite all of the diversity of cultures in the world-along with sex-is the only thing we all seem to have in common?

Is it pride?

Is it greed?

Is it denial?

Is it jealousy?

Is it a simple lack of respect for anyone outside our own circle?

Is it testosterone?


Well? Everything that goes wrong in this world, if dissected deep enough-be it war, or a soccer riot, or lying on a job application-has a single root cause. What is it?

Everything has a Cause, so the cause is to blame.

In fact, lets blame the creator of the word cause, maybe that would solve everything.

How about, each person is an individual. As an individual, you are different to others, you have different needs, therefore you think differently than the next man. Difference is bad, although individuality is good, you go figure. If someone is 'different', they often get picked out, bullied. But each person is an individual, huh?

Blame individuality, if we were all drones things would be different, there would be no disputes, we would think the same, be the same.

Maybe they are not troubles? Maybe this is what makes us what we are, individuals, which is good, and dispute and disagreement is just what comes along with our freedom.

Now I lost myself, I'll just crawl back in my hole.

Matt D. That would require me spending longer than about 3 1/2 seconds on any of your threads........like most of the things you post...they're not worth my time. Besides there nitz, the last 2 threads of yours that I voted on, I gave them 5's because I thought they were good. Guess I won't make that mistake again.

LOL You're really asking for it. I've been a fan since I was a little kid. I know how strange this sounds coming from a Canadian, but I was an Expos fan before I was a Canadiens fan.

As for the pirate thing, it was 3am and I was snooping around the gift shop after getting off of Pirates of the Caribbean after not sleeping for almost 24 hours.

I say it's pure greediness and sheer selfishness. It's just a fact of life that us humans are greedy and selfish and want everything our way regardless of others or other consequencies.

AC320: There is no excuse good enough for being an Expo fan. And I had been meaning to bring up that pirate picture for awhile now. Funny, I heard that was taken at 3pm, you were totally sober, and asked for the "hook arm" to be a part of the pic.

hey crazy things happen when your celebrating graduation with some friends at 3am. and lay of my Expos-ness you know how sensitive I am about the subject. Sad thing is, I don't have the money to fly back up and watch what may very well be some of their last games. I have fond memories.

And thats a bad thing? Hell, I heard that the Expos were having a promotion where anyone willing to actually go to their games, could get free transportation wherever they were from. I'd look into it if I were you.

Hey, don't feel bad about the Pirate picture. I mean I had this picture of me taken as a Pirate. I had the hook arm, the hat, the goofy scowl, oh and the eye patch. Okay, so actually I never did a picture like that. Maybe feeling bad is an option!  Big grin
