My thoughts one September day (probably after hearing about more shootings or something of the like)…

What would happen if we really all did get along?

Would the greenhouse effect still exist?

Would there be quicker cures found for diseases?

Would the planet overpopulate?

Would there be just one faith?

Would we all live in one big house?

Would there be bills to pay?

Would there be a need for elections?

Would anyone be “poor?”

Would there be money or some sort of bartering system instead?

Would we marry each other?

Would evil still exist?

I know we have free will, make your own choices, carve the path you desire as good as you can, etc, but what good is free-will if in the end we are not good or as happy as we should be? Does anyone really think we are here to be unhappy?  I cannot comprehend why we choose to kill or hurt each other as we do.  We all desire to be happy and yet there are those of us who would rather lie, kill, cheat, and steal and not out of proper necessity either!  How do we not understand that if we just loved one another this world would be such a happier place for all of us?

My heart aches for the human condition.
