Philosophy is the study of many problems such as knowledge, existence, and values in one’s life. Philosophy doesn’t necessarily ever have a right answer but another way to look at something such as what is the value of life. I have always loved philosophy because of this fact and it has helped me think of the how so many people can have a different perspective on something as small as a twitter post, to something as big as Martin Luther King Jr. “I have a dream speech”.
Through many perspectives, we can ask ourselves where do we stand, and dose our stand make the most sense to me. The UNICEF states that 12 children in extreme poverty die every minute of every day, From starving to death to not having access to having clean water to having Intestinal worms which is something we don’t even let our pets have. But this is a problem that is incredibly easy to fix for just 3$ a child can get a mosquito net that would protect her from malaria, Medicine to help the Intestinal worms are less than a dollar and you could probably feed one with the change you have in your pocket. So I guess the question is why are all of these children dying. Why exactly would I give up my hard earned money to someone I will most likely never meet, what obligates me to help them. And that’s exactly it, you don’t have to help them, if you do help you can give yourself a pat on the back but if you don’t help them nothing changes. We haven’t made them poor and I never agreed to help them some would argue and they have a point.
But if you were walking in let’s say your new 200$ shoes and you see a girl in a pound drowning. This leaves you with 2 decisions you could either let her drown and keep your new shoes from getting ruined or you could ruin your shoes but save the girl, now you would most likely save the girl because your shoes are replaceable but the person’s life isn’t, what is the difference between saving that girls life and someone’s in Africa, its simply the fact that one you can see and one you can’t. So do you think you should help the people in poverty or go on your focus on your own? What makes a good life, what if you think you had a good life but your friends and family say you didn’t have a good life or the other way around your friends and family think you have a good life but you think you have a bad life, Who is right. Did you do what you wanted too, did your life feel meaningful to you, did I do what I felt was right these are all questions we ask ourselves during our life. I believe if you felt like your life was meaningful you lived a good life.
