Celebrations end in tragedy

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Tuesday, November 23, 2010, In : News 



It was a strange way to be getting the news, but at the time I was on Skype to my wife in Cambodia when the initial details of the bridge tragedy began to occur and in hindsight I was kind of glad that I'd waited for the full unravelling of the aftermath to complete its own gory picture and finalise itself. The celebrations were supposed to mark the end of the rainy season in Cambodia with something called the water festival. Initially there was talk of the entire bridge that connects Diamond...

I guess in a ideal world money wouldn't be important. But even without money I don't think the world would be anymore perfect as the same kinds of people will still be in it even without money. How would you TRY to create greater fairness without something like a monetary system?

Its a strange world we live in. There are people who live in this world who are lavished with wealth, care and attention but don't necessarily fully appreciate it due to their relative state of mind and circumstance.

Marketing and consumerism helps us do it willingly (the reality)

We live in a world where the staff at a number of large well known high street electronics stores can tell whether the designer gear you're wearing is fake or not as soon as you walk through the door. They could even tell you which country and store you bought it from if you bought it from a reputable outlet. I don't even know why my laptop has an RFID scanner in it.
