Life has become spending and earning rather than sharing and caring

Clearly, majority of human beings prefer getting to giving. Everyone is driven by the motto for a std. living or consumed by something. Investments are plenty but none for ones loved ones.
For money being the root cause for evil, in the 21st CE , gadgets seems to have a better battery life than relationships.

If more people cared about getting and taking, we would be experiencing a far greater degradation as a society than we are now. The birth rate would be close to 0 if no one wanted to give, as raising a child is the greatest act of "sharing and caring." If spending and earning was so important, there wouldn't be such a strong push for welfare.

I would like to add that we also look at issues that don't concern us and have strong feelings about them, further showing that we do care about others.

I would like to further make my point that society still manages to function these days. Society could not function if life were to function as you describe it.
