Dear Khhhtghhh! Probably the most notable feature of the human race that we have seen yet is their uncontrollable desire for ownership. They are so obsessed with possessing and owning things that individual humans even claim ownership of pieces of land that this race lives on (the poor creatures cannot live in water or in the air and have to have their feet on the ground! Can you imagine?) They claim to own pieces of land which they then go on to give to others in return for something valuable (mostly money, the concept of money is still not totally clear to us, so we will explain that later).
Other than owning land and all kinds of other immovable stuff, these poor little beings also seem to own things that you would not be able to guess even if you let your imagination run wild. We are not suggesting that there is any problem with your intellect dear Khhhtghhh, it’s just that humans act in a manner too far below your intellect.
- Individual humans claim exclusive ownership to pieces of music or writing or paintings, in short they have a system where one person owns art.
- Large groups of humans own large pieces of land and call them countries. They have drawn imaginary lines on the landmass of the planet and have a different name for each country where only that group has the right to do more or less whatever they please.
- These large groups even claim to own the seas (where they cannot live) and the air above their so-called countries.
We believe that all this ownership crap has less to do with utilizing the commodity and more with excluding everyone else from using it. From what we have observed till now, this system leads to conflicts, stealing, fights (even wars between countries) and nothing but bad blood between humans. Most of the activity on this planet seems to be connected in one way or the other with either getting ownership of stuff that they don’t own or protecting ownership of the stuff they do own. We are yet to fathom what good all this confusion does and we are pretty sure that most of the wars, fights, disputes, conflicts and what-not are because of this. Yet, the humans seem to be totally oblivious of all this and continue to follow this system as if it were the best of things.
Once again dear Khhhtghhh, we stress that this situation where humans thought up this ownership thing, implemented it, saw its terrible results and now continue to ignore the obvious harms it causes, is yet another proof that we are not likely to learn much from this godforsaken species. Till next report.
