Today, we are in a universe that is facing many issues: Thousands of people are suffering, dying, or living under unjust circumstances (I say there is something wrong with the human project). When I look around the world I see many good things going on; people are doing their best to help and support others who are really in need. But, reality always shows us that winners are from the bad side, our rulers are from the bad side or they controlled by the bad side (I say there is something wrong with the human project). More powerful countries show less commitment to reducing their own arms substantially and continue to pursue their own “national interests.” They affect many others around the world. According to Stakeholder International, world military expenditure in 2012 is estimated to have been $1756 billion, representing 2.5 percent of global gross domestic product (GDP) or $249 for each person in the world. The total is about 0.4 percent lower in real terms than in 2011, the first fall since 1998. Nonetheless, the total is higher than in any year between the end of World War II and 2010 here(I say there is something wrong with the human project).

When I read human trafficking existing everywhere around the world with no exceptions, and most of the cases are associated with sex trafficking, and pornography producers. I say there is something wrong with human project. When I read sex industry is largest and most profitable industry in the world according to Stop Porn Culture here A Google Trends analysis indicates that searches for “Teen Porn” have more than tripled between 2005 and2013 and teen porn was the fastest-growing genre over this period. Total searches for teen-related porn reached an estimated 500,000 daily in March 2013, far larger than other genres, representing approximately one-third of total daily searches for pornographic web sites. Worldwide pornography revenue in 2006 was $97.06 billion. Of that, approximately $13 billion was in the United States (Internet Filter Review, 2006). I say there is something wrong with human project.
According to Catholic Relief Services:
- Nearly 842 million people are suffering from hunger.
- 98 percent of people suffering from hunger live in developing countries.

When the World Resources Institute (WRI), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the World Bank produce a report saying that we need USD $1 trillion to cover the food shortage around the world, and we make it by end of 2050 through developing annual fair budget and investing in what is good and forbid what is bad, military, sex and Alcohols industries keep saying no. I say there is something wrong with human project.
I want to say at the end of this devil life seems hopeless, and if you are hopeless follow his steps and he will take you to his way step by step ( just take look, then just touch it and the easy to be part of it). Let us stand up support to good, do our best for a good glob and good deed, I say it and I mean that until the last breath there is hope.
And I end with something from my tradition, one verse from the holy Quran Chapter 24:21 “O you who have believed, do not follow the footsteps of Satan. And whoever follows the footsteps of Satan – indeed, he enjoins immorality and wrongdoing. And if not for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy, not one of you would have been pure, ever, but Allah purifies whom He wills, and Allah is Hearing and Knowing”.
