Why does man who is born into a garden of innocent delight create a culture in which he is alienated from himself, his fellows, and nature? Why civilization and its discontents instead of paradise?
Other people are annoying and nature is full of insects that bite.
I think the simple reason is masses. It’s not necessarily a political or economic ideology that causes alienation, it’s simply lots and lots of people all wanting and needing the same things and competing for it. Everyone wants paradise, so paradise is only available at a price most people can’t afford due to it’s limited supply and possibly unlimited demand.
