What are we?

The earth in its vast richness, generously provides for all, it gives its best to the poor and the rich alike, to the adults and children, to the good and to the evil. We all eat from the same soil. But there is always a stiff never ending competition for things that have been there since time immemorial and will be there for eternity. Greed has blinded us, greed that never ends even when one gets all he needs. He always wants more, the rich man wants Naboths vineyard, Cain offers to God rotten tomatoes, David steals Uriahs wife, yes, everlasting greed. Everyone wants to succeed at the others expense, no room for everyone to succeed, just a handful. Jealousy has poisoned our hearts. Favoritism, nepotism, tribalism have stuck with us, no room for happiness, no room for human feelings that make us human. No fear for God, no basic rules, we are animals, beasts in disguise. Yes weve made the earth a hell of a place. Where no life exists. This, is not life.
