Martha, there is a difference between life and and the pursuit of life. Life is Life as we see it and as we live it. The pursuit of life is the ephemeral pleasure and habbiness that we seek unrelentlessly, then, it is a mirage. Suicide.
Capitalism as it is practiced today, distributed Injustice evenly among the people of the industrialised world. To name a few of it’s destructive impact, is suicide. The list is endless. Negative results will continue untill the west realize that all what they have created is a Mirage.
