I watched a Youtube video that was called Everything is Amazing and Nobody is Happy. For the most part the guy talking made a lot of sense and I agreed. However then I got to thinking it over and realized he was far off on a lot of what he was saying. First off not everything is amazing! We would be kidding ourselves if we even tried to think that for one second. Yes there is a lot of good in the world and in North America times are better than they were in the dirty thirties. However if you were to ask a starving child in Africa if they think everything is amazing, I highly doubt they would say yes. Or lets even bring it home for a minute, if you asked an abused wife or a child who just saw his mother hit they wouldn’t tell you everything is amazing or even fine. I agree that no body is happy and technology is partially to blame, but I think that’s because we are going to the wrong places for happiness. Money, cars, cell phones, big houses or new TV’s won’t make us happy. Everyone has heard that money won’t buy you happiness but what a lot haven’t heard is that Mammon is the key part to that. In 1 Timothy we hear that the love of money is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10). In other, older, translations however it is called Mammon, which can be found in Matthew 6:24, and Mammon is material wealth and riches. It includes so much more than just cash! Society keeps thinking that if only we had this or that we would be happier and better off, you can see it everywhere, advertising on TV, media in general, and it’s what our government is telling us! And look! Nobody is happy, which is the result of worshiping Mammon, who was thought to actually be a living thing! Funny how the Bible tells us this thousands of years before our time and yet we just don’t get it. Technology is part of the problem but it is not the whole thing. And finally, to wrap up my rant, I did not appreciate his comment on saying we are wasting it on the worst generation ever, I think those are the words he used. I am in that “new” generation everyone keeps slamming. I hear it all the time, we are spoiled, are always “give me give me” with not wanting to give anything in return. Yes some are like this but not all and I think the stereotyping needs to stop now. I work as a part time cashier at a store when I am not at school. Before that I worked at a fast food place, and I can easily say that the most demanding rude and arrogant costumers I had were always over 35! I am not saying in any way that they are all rude and arrogant and demanding but I am proving a point that every generation has its rotten apples and we should all just quit judging others and look at ourselves for a change and see how we can be better to those around us. Not thinking we deserve everything or even need everything for that matter!
