Underdevelopment, Capitalism, Traits and Poverty of the Future
By Nneka Okumazie
Money problem also makes life hard, but it is not an incurable condition – by normal, or by crook.
Elevating the possession of money as the ultimate success automatically takes away what should be observed about what matters more.
Money will always be important in a world of capitalism, but enough of it is not enough for progress.
There are more permanent and incurable traits that regardless of the money, exposure, travel or whatever else, nothing would change.
There were people of means many years ago, now gone whose life hold nothing remarkable. Not because they didn’t give to some charity or help a few people, but that what now defines this future, by traits, were not fostered by them, so what the future should have become because of them is absent.
There are several people in different places with money, but they are poor in the long run, not because they won’t have investments or properties, but those inanimate things already peaked as soon as they became owned. Their values may rise, but they may not have further roles to play in what would shape the future.
There are low purpose problems greater than money. There are low behavioural qualities worse than money problems. There is hypocrisy, pretension, unfairness, deception, etc. worse than having nothing.
There are those for whom money is a pass for anything, and its absence is a rejection of anything.
They forget that money as a ruler in their head was put there by society.
It may be possible to minimize the damage of non-money poverty of the future with an individual, but with a people or a nation, it is worse for them.
Every country will continue to build roads, schools, hospitals. These alone are not new and can be done with money.
But what it takes to have a civilization, sustain and multiply it takes more than the obvious fixes of money.
For the place where money is everything they think they need, they are probably hopelessly helpless.
