Adam - Since I have not provided u with even a draft to my answer to the all important question, “Why has the world’s financial markets not imploded, yet?” I can “forgive” u not getting the whole picture to mention little of u being, despite one very logical mind, absolutely wrong in terms of your conclusion, “you can't change the nature of the beast or human nature in our case. But you can use it to your advantage...”
We as human beings have the gift of reasoning over the animal kingdom. Given all the information to make a decision we are beyond the alligator at least – I think the chimpanzee is still the closest, no excuses!
Moreover, u should take the time to read the writings of Tefo Mohapi so simple, so evolved, so “black and white” and then give pause,,, be4 getting on your hands and knees, praying that Mr. Mohapi has the “gift” to teach the next generation of blacks and whites while usually with truth comes change, not all change is positive, not to throw out all the incredible good with the evil.
Adam – I would very much like your input on my answer to the all important question of why the world’s financial markets have not imploded yet.
In my opinion, it's simple... selfishness/greed.
People didn't care about terrorist until they knocked on our front door. It is
my opinion that by nature and design, people are selfish and self absorbed,
perhaps that trait has survived because it kept our species alive in hunting
etc. The world's financial markets though arguable orchestrated are run by
"momworker(s)" who selfishly go to work everyday regardless of
impending terrorist attacks or economic doom. The majority of
the worlds population is made up of people that are along for the ride,
not necessarily driving or making any decisions that effect anyone
beyond their microcosm. To stick with the same
It's all about selfishness... Julia and I
were talking about a similar topic and a story that I have heard in movies
many times came up... there is an alligator (substitute any predatory
animal) and a snake sitting on the edge of a river. the snake is a safe
distance away but says to the alligator, "I wish I could get across the
river, I just can't swim strong enough to get through the current." The
alligator replies, "I'll take you across, you can ride in my
mouth." The snake says "but you will eat me." The alligator
promises up and down that he wont and reluctantly the snake agrees, and climes
into the alligator mouth. Half way across the river, the alligator snaps down
on the snake and as the alligator proceeds to eat, the snake says, "but
you promised you wouldn't eat me... why would you do this." The
The moral of the story is, you can't change the nature of the beast or human nature in our case. But you can use it to your advantage...
