Why does America live like this?

Chat Forum Talk about topics not related to MapleStory

Before, survival of the fittest was the term. You had to be able to survive with the necessary skills. To hunt, to avoid danger, to live off the land,...
Who changed America? Who wanted this kind of lifestyle and why did he do it?

My guess is...t0 be safe. However, people who are fit can survive without money. So why? Why make everyone live like this?
To use money for everything. That's how I see our lifestyle as.
Was it a person who wasn't safe, and rather instead of having survival skills unlike people with survival skills that were more common back then than today decided to work everyday, doing the same thing for money to buy the things survival skills had offered? Even if that was true, then why? People are still fit as of today. Why did America want to make everyone use money to survive by workforce when there was people who can survive on their own? Survival skills?

The real question is? Why does America choose to live a life where they devote all of their free time in the workforce to survive when there are other alternatives? Many, many alternatives. A mix of survival skills and the workforce seems ideal to me. you have more free time with this type than being completely into the workforce with only 1 or 3 weeks of free time PER YEAR.

Umm... this "change" happened because it's awesome. #civilization [/quote]

I don't think its awesome, which is why I questioned it. I don't think it would be awesome to work 10 hours a day on the same subject. I don't think it would be awesome to work for 50 weeks a year. I don't think it would be awesome to not enjoy life as it was offered to you. I don't think its awesome to work for endless hours. I don't think its awesome to be a tool for your next generation. I don't think its awesome to not enjoy your life.

Lifestyle changes as technology progresses. They way we live is just the result of the technology we have.
If you look at the larger picture, however, you will see that we have gained alot more than we have lost.
eg: medical advances, infrastructure, understanding our universe, etc

Yes, we definitely have improved with that kind of stuff but why does the majority of America live like this? We would leave those things up to people who want to advance them.

If you really don't like this lifestyle, then just head on to one of the rain forests and become a hunter. Meanwhile you can also cut yourself off from proper medical care, electronic devices, and no guarantee of leisure time or even a proper meal the next day.
