Root of All 'Evil'

Tell me the objective life pursues
 
One lives to maintain adequate happiness
 
Satisfaction is like a drug: one will plateau from the stimulation administered and will be hungry for more
 
This may lead to selfishness
 
According to what are people expected to care about anything other than themselves when this obviously isn’t the perfect world?
 
Money or some source of trade is the main thing tying people to one another
 
Without this connection there would be no connection because people need other people ergo one reason for the production of deception
 
In life people naturally want to live without worry
 
People bring their descendants into this world but can only raise them based on their life learned lessons and principals but ultimately it is up to the individual to live a certain way
 
Only the individual knows the truth behind what drives their motives whether it be beneficial or malevolent to society
 
Essentially, it is a person’s belief of what comes after life
 
What is the purpose of life?
