@Funlov I'm putting a stop to this. You can't be rude in someone else's post. Start your own if you want a debate where respect is not a requirement.

@Laddu I think that understanding your sentiments need people from a certain level of experience.

From the POV of privileged, some others would likely not understand.

I do believe that things would be better with change. For instance, it is indeed curious that now people has to pay for water. But even back in earlier days, I've read about people already having a divide on which wells they could draw water from or not.

As for the passport and visa thing, I think it's a necessity for preventing bad and dangerously sick people from coming in. Take COVID for instance, it would be even more dangerous if we can't control those who have it from spreading it to other countries.

On to the matters of education, I believe education is important. In this society, it opens more doors to people. But I am also aware that the expenses and time it requires are no joke. And not everyone has the resources for it.

In my country for instance, there are free special classes offered in Tesda. Like a school that caters for skills (like cooking, baking, etc. - you can pick), but anyone who isn't as privileged as others can apply. It takes less time too to finish.
Sort of a quick vocational class that doesn't require you to be a graduate of middle or senior class. It is supposed to be free and helps widow or widowers or elderlies who just need to be able to do something and provide for family.
The slots are limited though.
If I may ask, does your country not offer something like this? Maybe you can try if there are.

I guess what I am saying is...I've been reading the thread and realized there are aggressive comments being answered to your answer to my post. I'm sorry that some of them were rude when you're just trying to voice your thoughts.

Personally, I don't agree with all of your points, but I can see why you might feel like they are a necessity. Your answer "freedom from systematic slavery" can lead to many branches depending on which aspect of the world we're talking about.

It's nice to know that people give my question some thought. I, for one, prefer thinkers. I like wavering minds over those that are bullheaded. Because when we doubt our sense of righteousness, we'd have better chances to figure out on whether we may be wrong at some point, which would then let us consider doing better.

And listening to people from different places of privilege would open up our minds and give us a deeper understanding of the world and what's happening.
Peace, health and growth.
peace…. All seeing one another as equals
None thinking themselves better
I wish people were kinder to each other

For many more people to have an attitude of friendly openmindedness toward people they disagree with or don't understand.
to migrate somewhere cold and experience snow!
For everyone to mind their own business

Some decency and manners.
I wish people were less distrustful, or had less reason to be.

@bijouxbroussard the world ... is not all that great. And it ain't getting better. I don't think I'll ever have less reasons to be distrustful. 😐
@Nevaeh0081 Well, I stated what I [b]wish[/b]. I’m under no illusions about it coming true. 🥺
