What Have We Become?

I heard this song driving home tonight from work. It kind of made me think about a lot of things that are going on in my novel as well as all the crap that is going on around us. Why is it so hard for people to appreciate what they are given? Whether it is freedom, an easy work day, or simply washing the dishes. I’m no hero, but I wonder why we are all subjected to being classified as lazy, stupid, or under achievers? Is it because we all have this ego within us that thinks we are the best, or have we come to that point where human rights and values don’t matter anymore? 

Have you ever overheard a manager trashing an employees name because they’re out from a hurt back? In my mind, they’re no better than the trash next to my desk. We are becoming more selfish everyday, and I wonder how long it will be before our downfall is because of that reason. Greed is our weakness.
