It never fails to impress upon me that there are people, and organisations out there that just want to find and exploit holes in systems and processes. Not with the intention of advising that there are better, more efficient ways of doing things, to improve the services or concepts of another. No, their goal and ambition appears to be to capitalise on the found weakness and do what they can to cause damage, driven by a sense of ego or financial reward. It just makes one wonder how people can be like that. It is possible to understand and sympathise that there are people living very poor economic conditions, with little in the way of independence, financial security and other common privileges to which I have the freedoms to enjoy. However, we produce industries and businesses to protect us from ourselves and our neighbours, while so many people suffer unnecessarily.
One ponders, would it not be more sensible to create a situation in which we are working on improving our society and so called civilisation, rather than constantly looking to pull it down at every given opportunity? We have choices to improve our lives and the lives of people that we encounter, influence and engage with, and the decisions we make on a daily basis support those choices. Why not think about the impact and influence one has as an individual and make a step towards greater good?
