That is to be discussed. Surely, there are also many other reasons why economy ''is in the trash''. Thing is, that there are ''phenomenons''/problems/whatever which can't be healed when they happen, and these not only relate to bodily injuries. If there's to many of such things/events, economy very well can suffer. I remember over ten years ago -- I don't look TV for ten years now -- they came up with a report where they stated that bullying in companies can cause millions -- or was it billions -- (I don't know that for sure because it happened that I zapped in the report, so I didn't get all of the information.) of economical loss. (I'm not an economist who knows in what range those figures usually lie. But it can be researched for sure.) They gave figures for three branches of industry. Two of them were 100 millions or billions, and one were 30 millions or billions, if I remember correctly. (I guess the figures were rekoned for one year for one branch of industry each in my country.) That's why bullying today is a crime when done in companies. As far as I know, it isn't a crime outside of a company, alas. They said that there are special clinics now for treating bullying victims. (Other things aside, I think that making up special clinics for that also does cost very much!) I wonder if bullying is a sin, tax dodging is now, btw.Pe King wrote:It is no wonder the economy is in the trash. No one produces.
The question behind is how to deal with things that can't be healed if they happen. The simple answer is that they must be avoided! In former times, there was a means for doing so: (Whow, my online dictionary gives me ten possible translations for this!) decency, decorum, integrity, manners, modesty, policy, propriety, prudicity, seemliness, sense of decency. I would also add honour! But these are quite outdated notions in our so-called modern world. Decency seems to have got a negative connotation, as I learnt form Wikipedia (in my mative tongue) a few weeks ago. (I cannot understand why, it is obviously a political thingy.) I wonder if very young people still know that words. And there's another problem: western society people don't like to accept that there are things that can't be done. They strongly believe that everything can be done, that everything is posssible, including that e.g. people with mental problems can be healed. If someone gets dishonoured, you will never be able to ''heal'' him. That's what people like Ossicone can't understand.
You shouldn't refuse that! People wanting to ''help'' other people -- regardless what their profession is -- often do more harm then they ever can dream of. I made that experience more than once and it destroyed all my life, in a certain sense. That's what I wanted to make clear in the old forum. There's even a proverb saying exactly that (trying to render it in English): ''Good intention if often the opposite of good''.Ossicone wrote:... but I refuse to believe the people wanting to help other people is ever a problem.Pe King wrote:I don't want a psychiatrist.
