Most people can’t see what’s wrong with humanity in the 21st century

I need to be honest with you.

I’m confused about the state of the world we’re living in.

You see, on the one hand we’ve created technology that has drastically improved living standards all around the world. We’re even on the cusp of colonizing other planets. Violence has apparently never been so low.

We’re told that this is the pinnacle of human achievement and that things will keep on getting better.

Yet when I look around and connect with other people, I regularly find a kind of internal violence. Anxiety and depression have reached epidemic proportions, especially in societies that are most enjoying increases in living standards.

We’ve created a social media grid that helps us spread ideas almost at the speed of light. Yet we’re seeing the problem of fake news. We don’t know what to believe anymore.

It’s easier for illusions to take control of our minds in this current context. I’m really worried about this.

We need a new way of thinking about ourselves, about who we are and how we relate to each other.

Our predominant ways of thinking are not really serving the purpose of human beings in the twenty-first century.

This is why I’ve created my own YouTube channel. It’s a place to engage in a series of reflections on the human condition — on who we are, where we’ve come from and where we’re headed. There’s a particular focus on the role of ideas in the human journey.

    But what difference does it make even if some people see the problems. It doesnt matter any more . We dont have stalls in the markets available .
    We have to cope with the changed market scenarios where some business organizations have the resources to organize the solutions of the problems of the present times. And they will not do because they are the ones who created the problems in the first place and now the market has expanded to such an unimaginable level that the creation of a central pivot to manage it is almost impossible.
    We have to cope up with Google and Chinese goods sold in our countries at the expense of local industry and time engagement .
    The only options we are left with are the choices such as Yours … Ideapod. Just using you as an example.
    Whether you actually believe it or its just your business, but the problems and solutions have been reduced to plain lies and illusions. And selling of Illusions.
    Problems are local in nature and therefore the solutions have to be local .There is no solution in listening to someone in USA saying – We need a new way of thinking about ourselves, about who we are and how we relate to each other.
    I am sorry I dont relate to you . I relate to people like me in my immediate environment .
    But if there are no investors for business like websites such as yours in our local environment (Because ) Big Businesses from the USA have taken over the MIND markets of our local environment, there are not many people who are concerned in the same way and hence no association.
    And so back to What’s wrong with the present times ?
