Life is unjust from the beginning. You make sure all other fellow sperms go wasted while you get hatched. Then you fight all the other eco-cycle inhabitants to survive. You consume the plants, hunt the animals, and kill the bacteria who themselves are in a struggle to survive by hooking on to you. You grow up, gradually. Your parents try to make you better than your peers. You wear good clothes because somewhere someone else is making them in an attempt to survive, but you don’t care. You grow up trying to be better than others in your schools.
You make sure you don’t let others beat you. You learn hard, you study well, you make sure every one but you is a loser. You get jealous, you want something that you don’t have. You long for better things for your self. You start working to feed yourself. If it is your own business, you try to be sure that every opponent runs out of business. If it is employment, you make sure you bargain for highest salary without bothering about your employer. For your emotional instincts you love someone, only because this completes you.
You work and you make sure you make more than others so you work harder. You get married to have someone to spend life with. You teach your kids and make sure they excel so that you feel content and happy and have a secured future.
This whole means that the life is not only unjust, it is based on a concept of selfishness. You are selfish from your first breath. Then why do we teach this virtue of selflessness in all story books, religions,and ethical standards. Why is it considered bad to be selfish. Isn’t that what we are?
