Default The world we shaped

We could have had a better place where to live.

We could have taken out work from our lives with the steam and the oil engines.
We could have brought for the first time peace to the world.
We could have been together and use the modern communication means to share ideas throughout the world.
We could have tried out systems and let them fall and build another one back again, until the strongest lasted for eons.
We could have worked for equality, for freedom, for justice.

We could have had a better place, but we'd rather let the interests of each of us take over.

Steam and oil engines just made the production grow.
We have only brought peace to us, at the expense of the poorest.
We use the communication means to make money out of them, and keep our brains entertained with cheap amusement.
We don't dare to touch anything from our democracies and fear the rest of systems.
We work for only our own good.

This is the world we shaped.
This is the place we're paying for.

If you want another one...

Alright, yeah but that's not just we... it's our predecessors and the whole nature of us. It's a train at full speed, which cannot be stopped overnight I'm afraid.
also, most people are fine with it atm.

It's true... What we HAVE is enough for us to live perfectly, even with technology - I don't think that respecting our world and technology are mutually exclusive... it's just the way we've used it
