Why is the world so unfair?
from activerain.com; Steve Jobs (RIP) giving tech opportunities to St. Peter.
One netizen said,
Steve Jobs died, thousands mourned. Many African children dying of starvation, no one mourned.
It’s similar to the fact that (BTW from Tumblr),
People mourn the death of Amy Winehouse more than those who were the victims of the massacre in Norway.
NOTE: I have nothing against Steve Jobs. He’s an awesome man, so I really can’t say anything negative about him.
Let’s admit it. We mourn celebrities than those who are really in need, probably because when we see those poor people, we think it’s normal, it’s a way of life. Heck, there are thousands of people worrying about Paris Hilton being arrested compared to Lindsay Lohan’s issues regarding jail, breaking of laws, etc. We think that what Paris Hilton did is like, her mistake, but in La Lohan’s case, we think it’s normal, or we’re just used to it.
We usually think that celebrities deserve more attention than those who deserve positive attention. Those people in need should be the concern of most of us, like donations to transplants, like DUH! Give at least a centavo or a peso in that donation bank. It’s not bad if you give donations, or “pass the hat.” You think giving alms is bad? Well, in a poor country, it is. But in a rich country, it depends upon the laws implemented, so yeah, it’s probably a BIG no to give alms to the poor.
The world is really unfair. Nepotism and cronyism can never ever be avoided. The rich becomes richer, while the poor becomes poorer. That is the result of widening the gap between the rich and the poor.
Some rich people prove this wrong by simply be fair and doing what other normal people do. They do not have nannies or bodyguards, they just have the guts to survive, even at the most extreme situation. Just ask those people who dare crossed the border. :p
After reading this post,

c.) Everyone is not problem-free.
1.) Create a blog post regarding this topic.
2.) Answer this question: Do you think it’s possible to make the world a “fair” and “just” place? Why or why not?
