    Our sympathy for one another and 'free market', can we apply both?

    The selfish economic decisions of home buyers, mortgage brokers, investment bankers, mortgage brokers...over the past decade left us all worse off. The philosopher Adam Smith long time ago talked about the 'invisible hand' that steers the selfish econimic decisions of individuals toward a result that leaves us all better off, but are we able to apply this 'invisible hand' in our decisions and restrain our selfish behaviour or our imperfect human nature again win?

    Until we see the urgent need for a change in the way we live. We will carry on living a life mistaking greed for need. Profit or pleasure will be our sole aim.

    Competition and co-operation do not go well together. Selfishness and goodwill to others are contradictory. Wherever there is a contradiction, conflict is the result.

    Misunderstanding life leads to the destruction of life Itself! Is there anything more insane? Whatever we do we create havoc with the world and ourselves.

    Societies based on goodwill and sharing will experience very little crime. Unfortunately they are built on retaliation and not prevention.

    Free Market Experiment, thus, Compliments the Objectives of Globalization, both shall wither away ... In, The Ordained ...
    So we should be patient, and await God's Verdict. For Humans are the Epitome of Creation ... Not, animals !
