What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

The refugee crisis is definitely being treated, in most countries, as a problematical border control issue rather than the humanitarian crisis that it is.
