They said a pen is mightier than a sword.. well, they got that right! a sword may only wound a person, and he/she can be healed eventually, but when is a person is wounded internally by an indirect act, such as in the form of malicious statements, slandering or a spreading of rumors that aren't true, accusations from someone that intends to destroy our good name or integrity, or framing us to something that we does not have any connections to it in any way whatsoever; this will hurt us in a very bad way, with a result of total humiliation and betrayal - one that will destroy us emotionally, if not physically, and may hunt us for the rest of our lives.
In today's globalised social life, one cannot run from encountering such situations in his/her daily life.. In the working atmosphere for example, if you think that there such thing as working as a family, bla2... you are definitely living in your fairytale, one which do not have a happily ever after ending on it! If one people succeeds in his/her career, the others will initiates a sense of envy and jealousy in which will eventually triggers to a sense of either hatred or admiration, depending on the attitude of the succeeder towards the others. All thanks to Darwin and his "survival of the fittest" crap. That's really makes people felt relieved when doing bad things to achieve their target in life. What a pathetic excuse!
Envy and pride flows along the development of society these days. It resides under the enchantments of capitalism, cherished under the name of integrity, honour and wealth.. In todays life, the sense of greed that once has become one of the seven deadly sins has now resurfaced in a new form called glory and prestige..
Today's world is no more than a stage, where peoples live inside it plays their roles hypocratically.. They abandon their true selves in order to pursue their so-called dreams of wealth and luxury, for fame and honour.. They tend to imitate others.. without thinking about the positive and negative effect of their actions and decisions.
People nowadays learnt that self-satisfaction is the true goal in their daily lives.. where everything can be justfied to achieve personal goals.. where sex is a common and adultery is abolished.. a society where lust is treated as their true instict.. they called that God is merciful and all-forgiving, but at the same time abandoning or rejecting the basic teachings and rules of God. They follow the teaching of people amongst them, in search for so-called "true happiness" - wealth and fame.
What are our society has becoming today?
"life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
that struts and frets his hour upon a stage,
and then is heard no more; it is a tale
told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
-shakespeare, Life's Brief Candle-
