Starting point: “poor neighborhood”

  • Q: Why does a young man join a street gang?
  • A: We tend to adapt to our environment rather than seeking a better one.
  • Q: Why does one not seek a better environment?
  • A: In our society, the disadvantaged (subjugated) find better environments blocked or restricted. The environments of academia and business have their own manner of speech and dress and nice neighborhoods require money.

The solution exists at the fundamental level. Our propensity for competition leading to the formation of exclusive groups inside an economic system of scarcity is essentially what causes societal strife.

No person has all the answers, but the Universe contains them. Let us think about it and be the conduits for the answers.
