I've been having difficulty feeling gratitude towards cold and soulless companies who's primary goal is to make money. Although they've allowed humans to cooperate together to build amazing things – the internet, airplanes, smartphones – I'm fixated on the harm the companies have caused and I start to question whether even these "amazing things" have been good for humanity.
Which leads me to the question – can you be grateful towards anything? A horrible upbringing? A bloody historical event?
Can I be grateful to the elites that organized the building of the pyramids with slaves? Or am I to be grateful for the slaves themselves?
Is being grateful simply trying to focusing on the positive, no matter what it is?
