The highest value
I think that life is the highest value in today’s world although life can’t proceed without any money either, which then could be classed as a higher value than life. I personally think that all human beings are equal and everyone should have the rights to live.
I personally feel that something greater than my life is my family. So if I had to sacrifice my self for my family I would do so because that’s the way I feel about life. I judge that life is precious but not precious than my family simply because I love them a lot and nothing in the world could change that.
However there are some people who may not feel happy with their life or may think that there is nothing for left for them in this world and may sacrifice their own life’s for others. For examples people in Iraq kit them self up with explosives and blow them self up in middle of the city for their beliefs and for others as they believe that certain way of living has to be changed or there is no point of living a life.
However, coming back to money issue I judge that without money there is no life although there are some social security available but that’s just enough to live on.
I think that money is one of the elements from which no one can run away from. What I mean is that even though I love my family very much but if I can’t provide for them for the future what kind of life am I to expect.
However to give value to anything higher than life you have to be alive to do so or you can’t value anything.
Also I judge that people spend time judging and criticising values for things where as it wrecks values for other people.
I judge that when we say that is there anything higher than life then we could argue about how money ruins life and how money makes life, but also that someone doesn’t sacrifice life at a blink of an eye for no reason. So for example I wouldn’t sacrifice my life for one of my friends who knew what the results of their actions were going to be for doing something stupid and dragging me along would only make me waste my life for something stupid such as drugs or murder mass.
Referring to murder I also think that no one should have the right to take someone else’s life away either. I think this because everyone have the same rights on this planet and no one should be differed from anyone else simply because we are all going to belong to soil at the end of our lives.
In addition, The Sanctity of life has a big role to play with self-murder. What I mean is that traditionally people have a view of The Sanctity of life as that all life is precious and it shouldn’t be ended without exception. So the argument I could raise is that diying is sometimes better than living. This states how out of date sanctity of life is. This is due to some reason for peoples life which may be regrettable and may want to end their lives as they may feel that there is nothing left for them to be able to continue living on. However, we could argue that well if there is nothing left for them to live on for particular reason, they should live on for others, devote their lives to helping others, this would at least give them a new opportunity to have an aim for their life rather than being helpless at all the times.
I judge that religion has an impact on life as well because no matter how much the religion differ from each other gods or teachings all say that life is the only thing that matters and everyone should love strangers as your brother or sister and share what you have with others. But do we really follow these teachings? Do we actually think that money has no value and therefore the value of money should be changed so everyone can have a better way of life and living? This certainly doesn’t happen to people who suffer from diseases simply because they are living in poverty and because they have no money they live for life, for others and share what they have because they know money is the answer to most of the things but they won’t have the easy access to it.
So simply if there is anything greater than a life it has to be the family we have and most importantly the knowledge we can use to earn for our families and live a life a luxury life. This is what everyone wants but may not be able to have simple because there isn’t enough money for them or they have other problems with their life hold on to rather than worrying about luxury all the time.
