All this while I’ve been posting only mild and subtle articles. Stories that stir our inner demons are very rare and yet very fascinating to read. Why the sudden change? I just realized that in a world of ruthless competition, nobody wants the safe player. They want the good, the bad and the ugly. Even though it is a disgusting way for a civilization to cultivate, sadly it is an inevitable phenomenon.
Certain scientists are convinced that we have reached the pinnacle of our evolution already. And that the only way for us to go is down. Now considering how I see the changes in my surroundings, I can’t help but to agree.
First comes the issue about morality. It is a dog eat dog world now. This change can be seen everywhere from everyday public transport proceedings to corporate espionage.The good old, do what is right is a lost advice since the definition of what is right has been marred beyond recognition. Considering a hypothetical scenario, a lot of us would rather lie our way through work or school leave grants rather than the honest truth. Why? The fear of being subjected to a rejection due to a simple reason that you wanted to spend a day with your grandmother, or party with your childhood friends is considered objectionable. Moral values are reduced to just an optional subject in the school curriculum. Well science and ethics are right this time then.
Trust is deep rooted. I do not mean the twisted definitions of trust invented by hassled lovers or teenage drama queens. Trust is a virtue that all species of a family depend on. When you buy a car, after all the paper work and the payments, even with the warranty and the guarantee, you simply trust that it will work. But in the world of extreme dysfunctional families and ego ridden relationships, trust is a lost emotion. When a friendly gentlemen stops his vehicle and offers you a ride, our first reaction would be a no. He could be a murderer, a rapist, a psychopath for all we know! When a civilization cannot work in harmony, it will cripple. History has proved us that time and again, and history does repeat itself always.
