Wise And Leader Once On Satire

Rating: 4.7
The leader says, "They are our man"
The wise says, "They are doing wrong"
"They are the modern man"
"Knowledge and skill less some"
"But in some other ways technician."

It is believed that the greed has no end. If the desires to accumulate more go on increasing, there is no way they can be satisfied. The modern man has to seek and follow the true philosophy of life-happiness does not lie in possessing more and more-it lies in developing a feeling of contentment in whatever we get fairly and honestly after trying our best. Whatever we get through unfair means may give us temporary enjoyment, but it definitely disturbs our peace of mind.

A grandfather knows that the cost of education has increased many folds. He, therefore, wants to supplement his son’s income so that he should have the means to send his children to college and university, even abroad. For all these envisaged programmes he starts making plans during his own job tenure. If some extra buck can be made by breaking a few rules, why shouldn’t it be tried?

The increased level of competition and show-off in society has brought in the heart of modern man to do something extraordinary for his children-so that they should live in a decent house, not a small flat, they should own a car instead of depending upon the crowded and inconvenient public transport system, they should enjoy all the comforts of life instead of having to struggle to run their household.

The increase of economic wealth of society and thereby of the individuals has not brought a sense of security in the mind of modern man. On the contrary, he has started feeling more insecure. Many factors are responsible for this feeling. Money has increased quantitatively but the value of money has decreased over the years-which call for collecting more money.

This desire to be admired is the basic human weakness which is driving the human beings to collect the means that others should make a base to do so. Why is this craze for foreign goods such as watch, camera or a recorder when our own goods are as attractive and function as well, plus coming cheap and having better prospects of parts replacement in case of some problem nothing but the desire to be admired- to be called a man with taste and status.

The economic wealth of society at large has increased over the years. The variety of goods and services of our disposal has become large. Now we cannot do without those gadgets about which we had not even heard just over a decade ago. There were, for example, no mobiles about 15 years ago; today we want them with us all the time-just can’t do without them.

Elaborating the idea further, Russel states that if all people had high income, there would be no happiness because there would be no comparison. A man shifts to a posh locality, sends his children to a foreign university and buys expensive paintings which he knows nothing about, only to show that he is superior to others. Our society is such that a person who possesses more money and more material things is respected more than the one who is simple-however noble his thoughts may be. These factors are also responsible for the modern man being materialistic.

The English writer and philosopher, Bertrand Russell has deeply analysed the psyche of modern man. He is of the opinion that man goes in for more possessions in order to show that he is more successful than others. Russell believes that material possessions give man happiness because he finds that in his comparison, others do not possess as many things. Happiness exists in the sense of comparison.
