Selfish Genes or Failed Systems: Unraveling the Roots of Inequality

Everywhere we look, we are told to 'help others without expecting anything back' - whether it's a thank you, some cash, or a pat on the back.

So why is it that unfairness and inequality seem to be everywhere?

Is it because deep down, we are wired to look out for ourselves first, always trying to get the better deal and putting our group first?

Maybe the blame lies with - our leaders - bankers and big corporataions, the elite, and even religious heads who have, over time, shaped a history filled with greed, dominance, and discrimination.

Or is it all about the money and politics? Over the years, we have seen different systems and policies like capitalism and globalization take over, sometimes leading to corruption and uneven distribution of power and wealth.

Religion has guided billions of people in how they live their lives. But has this guidance also given rise to greed, close-mindedness, and an unwillingness to accept others who are different from us?

In the end, it might be a mix of all these reasons that has paved the way for the huge gap between the haves and the have-nots, the one we see everywhere today.

So, what is your take on all of this? It is clear that this gaping disparity and the prevalence of inequality is not just a fluke—it is rooted deep within various aspects of our society.

But why do you think it is so widespread in our world today?

Let us not just stand by and watch. It is time to roll up our sleeves and get involved. Find someone who is already fighting the good fight and lend them your support, or take the lead and start your own movement to tackle inequality head-on.

Remember, every voice counts and yours could be the catalyst for change.

Let us do this, together.



Taking action matters more than standing by silently. Support someone who's passionately championing for change, instead of just watching from the sidelines. Your involvement can make a real difference!
