Abundance leads to Laziness

posted Feb 28, 2012, 2:09 PM by Rishi Gangoly
Don't you think if everything is in abundance people will eventually get lazy and start avoiding working and thinking?

Answer


If everything was in abundance, people would go from merely 'surviving' to actually 'living'. When we don't have to worry about where our next meal comes from, we start thinking beyond material things. We start exploring science and art and culture and space, and all the boundless frontiers out there that are still undiscovered. 

If this is hard to believe, visit YouTube and check out the millions of independent videos about new technology, new studies, new theories, new engineering, new philosophies etc. that people have created and uploaded for absolutely no monetary profit. They have done this to spread the joy of learning. For the love of sharing ideas. And most important -- because man is designed to "create beauty", not "earn waste paper"
