I am a student at USF with intentions of getting a doctorate in psychology
An idea worth spreading
How can the few people in the world who are truely selfless change into the mass of people who are currently selfish and self centered? Power, an innate human desire, seems to fuel this mass of people to focus on themselves. This drive for power is evident in politics where the politicians in fact hold little power, it is their financial backers in reality. Money may be linked to the evolution of the brain. Whoever had the most to trade thousands of years ago, had the most power. For example the Egyptians worshiped their Pharaoh as a God. He didn't rely on financial backers like today, he/she had the wealth so they had full power. Money or some form of wealth causes greed which has its roots in our evolution from pre-humans thousands of years ago. The concept of having more than someone else has been genetically modified in the brain I believe. Although quite nihilistic, if I am correct, it may be impossible for those select few selfless people to turn into the masses. Or is it?
