Why for some people the FEAR OF MISSING OUT is stronger than moral standards?
I'm disturbed by deteriorated moral standard of some people. Too many people.
Recently I wrote a review of a website that has all the signs of being a scam, probably of the Ponzi scheme type. In such scheme, early joiners will get paid, sometimes for a long time, as their payments are coming from the newer joiners' money.
The post is ranked #1 and gets hundreds of views every day and some organic comments as well.
In part of the comments, the readers are thankful for the post that saved them from getting into this scam. I'm super happy to help.
But other readers are different. They say "I don't care what it is as long as I"m paid! Let me make money!"
In the post, I stated that it's possible to get paid for a while, but the business model is not real, so your money comes from someone else's pocket.
How people became so ignorant and selfish? Does it have anything to do with the fact that these comments mostly come from African countries?
Is there a difference between their moral standards and the ones in developed countries? Don't get me wrong, I'm not expressing any racial or political prejudice here.
Is it the poverty and the lack of good jobs and legal opportunities that makes them think this way?
It's too sad.
In my interpretation, they just say that they don't care to rob other people, as long as they are not going to be caught and jailed for this.
I'm so glad we have our WA community here, where most of the people sound to be of different type. Unfortunately even here, there are members who don't mind copying other's posts.
I wish I could raise my kids in a better world..
