1) “Most men are caught up in the rat race”. Agree / disagree and why?
I agree, most men are caught up in the rat race. Fancy cars, Fancy houses. We want everything to be bigger, better and faster then what we currently have. And once we get the better item, we just want something even better.
2) If the Rat Race is an unwinnable race, why do you think so many men run in it? What are they trying to accomplish?
I think part of it is society/family/friends expectations. We believe that if we don’t, we will be viewed as failures by those around us. By being “successful” we create a sense of validation and purpose to what we are doing. I think another part is to be impressive. Whether it is “getting the girl” or showing off to ones friends just to look Cool, we want to be the winners of the “Rat Race”
