Making life more meaningful by understanding your role in the society
It is a reality that unless you understand your role in the society, you can never make any meaningful contribution.
According to the Greeks, there are three types of people on earth:
– the idiots,
– the tribesmen, and
– the citizens.
Studies have shown that many areas have more tribesmen and idiots than citizens.
2. When the Greeks used the word “idiot”, they did not use it as a curse word.
Idiots are people who just don’t care.
If they write exams, they will cheat.
If they are in government they will steal.
An idiot does not care at all, if he eats bananas he throws the peels anywhere instead of putting them in a trash bin.
3. The next set of people are “tribesmen”, these are people that look at everything from the point of view of their tribe.
These are people that believe in you only if you are part of their tribe.
It can be terrible to have a tribesman as a leader, he will alienate the rest.
When the Greeks talk about tribes, it’s not just about ethnicity, they also consider religion as a tribe.
4. The last group are “citizens”.
These are people that like to do things the right way.
They will respect traffic light rules, even if no one is watching them.
They drive within speed limits.
They respect the laws, won’t cheat in exams.
In government they won’t steal.
They are compassionate and usually give to others to promote their wellbeing.
Citizens often promote projects that benefit everyone.
The Greeks called this group the citizens.
Some countries have more citizens than tribesmen and idiots.
Others have so many idiots.
A tribesman can become a citizen through orientation.
And an idiot can become a citizen by training and constant enforcement of the law.
But things fall apart if you elect an idiot or tribesman to lead you if he has not been reformed.
Where do you belong?
Are you an idiot, a tribesman or a citizen?
Reflect about your life.
Reflect about your country before you answer.
This is a food for thought
