Human Beings Everywhere are More Alike Than Different

Commentary
By Scott McLean

People keep looking for differences between themselves and others, which often leads to anger, hatred and war. But "we" (human beings throughout the world) are more alike than different, and this statement is backed up by more than anatomical sameness.

Some of those shared characteristics of human beings, whether in the Eastern or Western half of the planet, are good while others quite bad, indeed.

People everywhere have hopes and goals, most of which are natural and good. However, a winning number is becoming the means more people think will help them reach their financial goals. Lottery luck isn't just an American obsession.

It has been brought to my attention that the lottery is on many people's minds in Thailand. What makes that even more interesting is less than a month ago Thailand had a military coup.

I will have more to say on this topic in the next post.

I like your site also! I agree with your point in this post. The sooner we recognize our common ground, the better off we all will be.
