Inventions? Technological advances? What do these words really mean to us, and how important are they in our lives? When you go through life day by day do you really put into consideration the amount of greed there is inside of you, the better question is do you understand what greed is? Greed is, in a small non-descriptive sum, the yearning inventions and technological advances.
So what are some inventions, and, or technological advances, Televisions, computers, automobiles, maybe to an extent even some forms of plants. Take automobiles into consideration, they are used by millions of people for business, commercial, and non-commercial, home, and even sports. Automobiles are used for business purposes by transportation of commodities, or material items, and transportation to work. Home uses for automobiles are transportation to a friend, or a relative’s house, and used for sports for purposes such as, drag racing, NASCAR racing, and so forth. So the question is how are these things, or how can these things be labeled as avarice.
Greed can be defined by saying that greed is the nostalgia for everything we do not need. By far these things are used in greed no matter what light it is shown in. You can walk to a friends’ house, but why do that when you can drive, greed. You can walk to work as well, but there is no sense when you don’t have to. All things are done through greed. Racing, it is not a necessity, but is done for self-entertainment. Television is in the same context. T.V. is used for self-entertainment purposes only. Therefore stating all of these things is for self-benefit, in turn making them greed.
A more important question to be answered is how are these things relevant to our everyday lives. While sports may not be, things used for industrial purposes are incredibly important to our everyday lives. The transportation, used day to day, of goods, whether food goods, or materialistic goods, are important because we need to eat, and we need materials for homes to have decent shelter. Televisions and computers are both important forms of communication. We need communication to offer trade agreements between countries, and to keep communication with our nation.
So what would it be like without communications, transportation, or sports?
Hopefully or nation is not one to find out, especially in a word of today, where it seems almost a necessity to have things of this manner. What if our form of communication was reduced to nothing, or if our transportation was reduced to stone wheels, or maybe none at all? Would it be a world of insubordination, chaos, or even inhumanity? This information has been withheld to the past, and become an obsolete knowledge. Does it matter? Should it matter? Or is it irrelevant since our advances are beyond that. The question is known only with the opinion of your own mind.
