Why is it that some ppl have to suffer so much while others have it made, without having done anything to deserve it? Some ppl win the birth lotto- 99% of your life is determined by who you’re born to and where. Who your parents are and how much wealth they have (or not) 100% determines your fate. If you were born in Africa, you’d be screwed (yes i know, not all parts of Africa are bad off). If your parents were selfish assholes and never treated you well since a baby, well, you’re in for a lifetime of mental issues/depression/trauma, etc.
The concept of “karma” or you were bad in your previous life and hence your reincarnated self has to suffer- is utter bullshit. It’s something the wealthy made up so that us poor peasants will swallow that nonsense and not rise up and revolt
There is no such thing as karma bc if that were the case, you’re telling me that all the starving in children in Africa (or India or N. Korea or name any other 3rd world or war torn country) all deserve it. That they were all evil in their past life and hence they all deserve what they’re getting? That’s essentially what the concept of reincarnation is.
Anyhow, back to the original question- why do some of us have to get screwed and lose the “life lotto”? If we were born into poverty, or with parents who neglected us and didn’t care for us, we grow up with lifelong scars and traumas. Why do we have to suffer so much? Literally our entire lives?
Yeah yeah, “life isn’t fair,” but why shouldn’t it? Why is everyone OK living in a world where some ppl live in abject poverty? Where some children are abused or neglected or starved or raped? Why is society OK with it? Those who wake up not caring about anyone else but themselves- are perfectly fine in a world where “life isn’t fair”- so long as they get the long end of the stick.
Does the world the way it is, NOT bother ppl? It’s incredible to me how it DOESN’T affect more ppl or elicit more empathy than “oh well, that’s just life” or “well life isn’t fair” and “it is what it is.”
Anyhow, fuck this thing called life. I’m tired of life’s injustices and bullshit.
