    how obssessed with money is your country/society

    Bingo. Fulfillment is what drives the human race. But what are these type of fulfillment, and are they all considered good for us? It's a very mercurial question, but something that honestly and wholeheartedly needs to be addressed.

    how obssessed with money is your country/society

    Well, now we're getting somewhere :) I don't see much of a difference between internal or external success, because inside, we're all human and want the same thing- fulfillment. That level of fulfillment differs from person to person (and we can also, we as in a general way of saying it, delve...

    how obssessed with money is your country/society

    You are not understanding the underlying thrust of the question. What is success? You claim that success equates to wealth. What does that success mean? What is the nature of success?

    Success is not equated with wealth. Imagine a tribe of monkeys. Is the monkey with the most bananas the most successful?

    how obssessed with money is your country/society

    The zeitgeist of today's era is certainly capitalistic, if we look at our history in the array of eras that have gone by, meaning that the spirit of mammon is quite the biggest ethos that grips the psyche of the modern citizen. However, I would say that its more power and ambition at the top...

    Are we going insane? (Re:Ranting and Raving)

    Then you clearly have a naive understanding of what the sacred is.

    Are we going insane? (Re:Ranting and Raving)

    Religion is more culture than a tool. Loosely speaking it's a way of life. But then again some religions have a certain outlook on what life is, and the things that transcend it, if that realm exists/subsists.

    Are we going insane? (Re:Ranting and Raving)

    That's not how it works. You're conflating a secular vision of what justice and punishment are like with what the natural order of how a Christian views the world, i.e. including the spiritual aspect. What is hell? What is death? What is unconditional love? You'd have to go into a serious...

    You need to unplug from whatever habits youre doing now and do menial things for a couple of days. That, and there needs to be a way for you to feel cared by someone, like a family member who understands or a friend who can sacrifice some time and energy for you. Im not sure on what the hotness...

    Existentialism- Life is suffering

    That's more or less what I feel about Schopenhauer. He seems more clear headed about reality and doesn't fall victim to romanticisng his view of the human condition. I would say most people, whether they realize it or not, have a loose acceptance of reality that aligns with Schopenhauer's. He's...

    Existentialism- Life is suffering

    There isn't a philosophical tradition that was left by Nietzsche, unlike Hegel or Marx. Nietzsche's philosophy is more of an outcry against the nihilism he felt, not an actual affirmation of life. He's more or less a dead end philosophically, much like Camus.
