love is an illusion
I think the problem with society is that everyone tells us that we have to fall in love to be complete, when it’s actually the opposite. You have to first be complete to be ready to fall in love. Otherwise, if you lose the person you fall in love with, you’ll crumble, collapse. While if you are complete all by yourself nothing will be able to tear you down forever, because you know you can stand up on your own.
In the past, people needed to build a family for the sake of surviving. This reason is still important for people in poor countries. People in rich countries don’t need each other for surviving. They even don’t need kids, because there is a social care in rich countries. This is why a family there became useless form, seeking for some new meaning. Every group of people is looking for its own meaning of a noun “family”. This process is complex and painful and controversial, because we all live in the close neighborhood on this planet.
John Perkins (b. January 28, 1945) is an American author. His best known book is Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (2004), in which Perkins claims to have played a role in an alleged process of economic colonization of Third World countries on behalf of what he portrays as a cabal of corporations, banks, and the United States government.
Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. They funnel money from the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign “aid” organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of a few wealthy families who control the planet’s natural resources. Their tools included fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as empire, but one that has taken on new and terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization.—
