I find it funny that such a heavy topic is under the title of “Lite Thinking”. As a writer from the U.S. who has traveled much, I have come to realize that our intentions as a society come to reflect materialistic desires. Also, because we are so disconnected from one another in the 21st century with technology we seldom interact with one another. Because of all of these factors, we often fulfill our own goal selfishly or for selfish reasons. Happiness I feel shouldn’t be surrounded by genericity, ones own goals should benefit humanity.

Andy, I do very much agress with your statment– goals benefitting humanity, but the trouble is the question: when do goal stop benefitting humanity and only begin to benefit a few (e.g. the tobacco and or oil industry)?
Self satisfaction is just as ardous to sustain as it is to make another happy, we are taught– past generations and current that things are meant to move vertically, not horizontal… meaning: you set a goal accomplish said goal and move up and the same could be said for mans relationship with one another.
This “new” generation is constantly labled “materialistic,” well honestly, that is because there’s more to buy v. 50 years go. New companies are born daily, creating new products and some the same products with only different brand name, but still increasing competition. Think about this, oniamania is no new phenomenon.
My reason for titling this as I did was to ambuse readers minds. And I see its gotten your gears turn- I like it. Thamks for sharin your thoughts.
