Decision: Money Or Love!? Basics On UNO World Happiness Day And Human Lives
Arguments favoring money over love are articulate enough, though not necessarily literally in human terminology. Opinions do differ and it's interesting to analyze main socio-economic trends and thinking in this respect. Let us view just that.
Why can't you love money? So the reason goes: You people are silly. Can we really compare the two? Love is without any price tag, unconditional and not very hard to get! You get that from your parents at birth. Your relatives give it to you, your teachers usually have a little for you. I mean come on now. Look at all the love around the world these days. Most of it is usually fake. (It's forgotten that love of money made most relations fake and untrue!). And all the selfies and narcissistic posts we see, people have too much love for themselves! They are selfish self worshipers, uncaring and without feelings for other human beings.
Money is conditional, it is not free, you actually have to go out and get it, others contend, claiming "unless you are one of those bums getting free money from the government" in jobless and welfare crumbs, and that too if you happen to be in US and Europe etc. Besides money, after hard work and some good pay, if you still don't have enough love, you can go buy it! The more money you make the better love you can get. Thus money is not only greater than love, but is a lot harder to get these days. It's also said: You can't build up an empire on love. Love is an unrealistic emotion that is the cause of a chemical reaction inside our brains that stimulates us. In a way it is a drug, it is almost useless in today's world and only acts to keep two people together. Love is just an unrealistic emotion that has been romanticized in today's culture. We can have people who can not feel anything but can we live without money? No, of course not, money builds empires and economies, it is the fuel of the world. Love is only a barrier that has prevented humans from operating without bias since the dawn of time, and it should be something that should be eliminated.
It's often claimed that if a guy has enough money, he can get pretty much any woman he wants. Just by paying for things she asks for. If you are a woman and not very attractive, you can just buy plastic surgery. From what is seen, men and women tend to look for typical things in a mate. Women tend to look for a man that can support them and a future family where men tend to look for someone attractive with a beautiful body. Either way, money can bring you love: Most people have experienced it. (Whatever it may be, it may rightly or wrongly taken to mean as love).
Sure, some people marry for emotional reasons but sooner or later, money becomes a factor and arguments about it often lead to divorce. Someone may say that their love is not for sale over and over again. But one day when they fall down financially and desperately need help they may accept your offer. Money has been able to buy "nearly and almost everything on this planet and beyond, including live human beings on earth. So, why can't love be bought? At least, it is something that is said to be love, even though it may not be true. But people don't live by definitions of truth. They can introduce lies as truths for material benefits or personal pleasures in false make-belief in self aggrandizement.
Of course it all depends upon which level of happiness one is speaking of when asking if money can buy happiness. On the most basic levels, money most definitely can buy happiness. It is genuine happiness to be able to provide medical help for your children. It is quite decidedly happiness to pay rent or mortgage to have a roof over your head and your children's heads. It is indisputably happiness to buy wholesome and adequate food to serve your family and yourself and your beloved four-footed furry friends. It is most certainly happiness to have money for some form of transportation, be it public transit or private automobile, that allows the escape from walking 1 or 2 miles carrying supplies for family meals for a day or two. Money can and does buy happiness.
The problem is that when our happiness is met at one level, our desires and definitions of happiness continue in an accretion process, growing ever larger and more complex, and soon the capacity of money to provide is outstripped by the nature of our dreams of happiness: money can't buy happiness in the abstract but it most definitely can buy happiness in the concrete on the first several most fundamental and necessary levels, including an education and for securing a well paying job. And it is hard if not impossible to find the love of one's life without money with which to make one's self look respectable and presentable. Money most decidedly can and does buy happiness, when it buys house, finalize a marriage, offer clothes, food, school fees and cost, transport fare or vehicle ownership, life's daily expenses.
Here are some statistics that will make you think about whether money can buy happiness. According to Forbes, all you need to be happy is an income of $50,000 (just a couple of years back). Apparently, scientists have found that "Respondents to the poll who made more than $50,000 were more satisfied with their lives concerning factors ranging from friends, to health, to how they spent their time." Can a person be happy when he/she is starving, with their rights robbed by poverty, sizzling in heat, or freezing in cold? Maybe one in a million. To sum up for those who believe money is more important than love: Hollywood actor Burt Reynolds said "I have been poor and miserable. I have been rich and miserable. But I prefer to be rich and miserable!"
