In The Road to Wigan Pier, George Orwell says:
The world is a raft sailing through space with, potentially, plenty of provisions for everybody; the idea that we must all cooperate and see to it that everyone does his fair share of the work and gets his fair share of the provisions seems so blatantly obvious that one would say that no one could possibly fail to accept it unless he had some corrupt motive for clinging to the present system."
Yes, it's so blatantly obvious but I'm not sure of George Orwell's hypothesis for the reason for people not accepting this as having “some corrupt motive for clinging to the present system.” No, my diagnosis would be, they are 1) either idiots or 2) some sort of psychopaths. I'm sorry for the word which might be insulting but it is not said with that intent, just a diagnosis of a mental sickness.
Oh, actually there is another diagnosis which probably explains all this in a more condonable way: It's because 3) they FEAR.
What to do with that fear, I honestly don't know. What I know is you cannot reason people out of fear. Fear is intrinsic. Fear becomes intrinsic once it is sown there by fear-mongering, manipulative powers that be. Can I talk anyone out of that fear? Their fear of extinction or poverty? By simple logics? I doubt it will work, even if I try.
Those of you who have trouble with this fear... Try reading George Orwell's words again. Read this a hundred times per day, until it gets affixed to your brain:
“The world is a raft sailing through space with, potentially, plenty of provisions for everybody; the idea that we must all cooperate and see to it that everyone does his fair share of the work and gets his fair share of the provisions is so blatantly obvious.”
That would be my prescription for your cure and a step towards the survival of our kind.
PS: Not that I believe we necessarily need to survive. But we definitely will not if we do not wisen up.
