Dog Eat Dog



dog eat dogThe system is cut-throat. The natural world is gone. Pitted in an arena, the rooster with only his spurs will lose to the other equipped with the blade. In most circumstances, a strong body or a sharp mind no longer directly translates to success.

Money has become the medium of survival. Inheritance, dynasty, deception, corruption, capitalization, cronyism, nepotism, manipulation, luck, and other factors skew the system, the system that many try to cheat. Instinct and innate inclinations mix, but do not necessarily coalesce well, with social and artificial constructs, sometimes resulting in deformed tendencies.

Hardship and desperation test our virtuousness, bend our perspective, and can leave us lost in the gray areas of morality. Utilitarianism, or the most good for the greatest number of people, may not stand universally, especially when important personal entities or loved ones are suffering or are in need.

Are we really born good and become exposed to and potentially influenced by bad? Or are we really born evil, only struggling to suppress the bad to be good?


What will a man do upon a dire need? What will a man do if there seems to be no way out? What will a man do if his family will suffer? What will a man do if his baby hungers, cries, or is dying? What will a man do if faced with the potential devastation of his "world"?

There are some rules of nature that no longer apply. New rules and guidelines have been put in place with the emergence of civilization. Moreover, further subdivisions introduce more complex and intricate encapsulated worlds within.

dog eat dogI am frustrated at seeing crooks and shady creatures rising to and thriving at the top, at the expense of decent individuals who get crushed, receive unfair treatment, or somehow end up getting disadvantaged. And I am very discouraged at my inability to reside in the country that I love due to an environment that has been made unconducive by corruption, dynasties, plutocracy, corpocracy, and other social deformities. Sometimes a revolution, whether subtle or explosive, is warranted to even begin movement in the opposite direction.

If a blade is there to wear, if it is legal, and if I will get sliced by others who do have blades, then it may be worth it to supplement my spurs rather than remain disadvantaged, be ill-equipped, and concede power to the antagonists.

I agree with what you said about the system being cut-throat, specially in the Philippines. I have no experience with MLM though itself but I've been invited several times -- to First Quadrant, Vera, etc.
