I have finished yesterday "Searching for God knows what", from Donald Miller and I though it a terrific book. I liked when he though about how an alien would think about humanity after observing people and TV shows:
"Humans, as a species, are constantly, and in every way, comparing themselves to one another, which, given the brief nature of their existence, seems an oddity and, for that matter, a waste. Nevertheless, this is the driving influence behind every human's social development, their emotional health and sense of joy, and, sadly, their greatest tragedies. It is as though something that helped them function and live well has gone missing, and they are pining for that missing thing in all sorts of odd methods, none of which are working. The greater tragedy is that very few people understand they have the diease. This seems strange as well because it is obvious. To be sure, it is killing them, and yet sustaining their social and economic systems. They are an entirely beautiful people with a terrible problem."

To feel well, people need to be in a kind of advantage against other, but this will be never enough.
I can see that think in some ways... to be covered in next posts.
