OP thinks he's miserable now. He has no idea how much work was required to survive 80 years ago--nor how much work would be required if he were alone in the wilderness.

All animals spend most of their life and energy searching for, or consuming, food---and sleeping. Some energy is also required for reproduction and rearing of offspring, and fighting for breeding rights between males.

Man has become able to plan and to specialize in different processes to be better able to survive and rest. But now we are at a point where the coming generations will be dependent on government to tell them what to do, what to eat, where to live. At least then, OP will not have to use his brain at all.

From nature's perspective what is your purpose for existing if you are not producing?

You don't see old age homes for ants.
You don't see bears able to lie around and be taken care of by other bears when they get old
You don't even see packs of wild dogs taking care of other members of the pack when one of the dogs gets old

PRODUCE ... or ... DIE!! THAT is how the natural world works.

The world is filled with SPOILED people these days, my own sons included.

When I was young, in my 20's, I remember overhearing a number of male Concentration Camp survivors talking among themselves about the "Camps", not knowing if they themselves would live until the next day even as they watched their own brothers, sisters, uncles, and cousins being pushed into the "showers".

Want to complain about "life"?

Those that had to help kill their own families, or be killed themselves, had every right in the world to complain like the OP is doing ... YET ... they survived, finally got out of the Camps, moved to a place where they couldn't speak the language, found a job - always the first couple of jobs were terrible jobs, married (or remarried), and to a one had a NEW family of their own creation with kids.

In listening to those "Camp" survivors I learned that life is what YOU make of it while you are alive. Dealt a "bad hand" in life? DEAL WITH IT ... and strive to not just climb up the ladder but to ENJOY EVERY DAY THAT GOD GIVES YOU TO LIVE!!

OP is a Spoiled WHINER!!! "Poor ME, Poor ME, Poor ME".
What is OP doing to better himself?
What is OP doing to enjoy just being alive with some food in his belly?
What is OP doing to help others?
Nothing that I can see from his post.

Sheesh ... OP is a classic Spoiled Person who expects a good life to be handed to them on a silver platter. Maybe he should move to India and try to survive on the streets. If he would make it out alive through 6 months of doing that, which I don't think he would, I highly doubt he would ever complain about his life here ever again ... and might even be motivated to better himself so he could live a better life.

I don’t expect you to understand this because we cannot see outside our current state of consciousness but all you wrote sounds good but only if you have the ability (power to act) and some people do not.

Everyone, including you will eventually reach a point where they are exhausted and finished with this way of life and seek transformation.

Religion is enabling you to continue enjoying but it cannot last.

Don’t assume everybody is in the same state as you and can do what you can do, maybe they can and maybe they can’t.

But you must not resist.

“If you deal with society you must accept its ways, for its ways are your ways. Your needs and demands have created them. Your desires are so complex and contradictory -- no wonder the society you create is also complex and contradictory.” - Nisargadatta
