Fortunate One Lyrics
“It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no senator’s son, son
It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no fortunate one, no
Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Lord, don’t they help themselves, oh
Some folks inherit star spangled eyes
Ooh, they send you down to war, Lord
And when you ask them, “How much should we give?”
Ooh, they only answer “More! More! More!”
it ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no military son, son
It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no fortunate one, one”
So what’s the less fortunate to do in a world that is inherently unfair? What would make them happy at the end of the day?

Compassion for the Hopeless
For the less fortunate, this implies that you are free to pursue whatever interests you within the constraints of your circumstances- but if you mess up, you have only yourself to blame.
This is an invalid argument. How can a man who is blind see the light?
To some extent, cheap pleasure-seeking works! Hedonism does alleviate the suffering of the less fortunate. Where it falls short is in persuading the helpless to change their fate.
Breakup of Nuclear Families
A fatherless youngster raised in an abusive environment cannot be expected to become president. Perhaps a few clever children, such as Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, make it to the top due to exceptional genes, but the vast majority of unfortunate children are tossed to the curb by life.
Less Fortunate One
What you have is a rogue populace that is uninformed, lonely, selfish, and dumb, and it is being used by individuals who have always been in power.
Islam and Hedonism for the less Fortunate
No wonder Islamic societies, despite being the poorest overall, score high on the world happiness index.
So, yes, drugs, intoxicants, promiscuity and revelry for the less fortunate would stave off the inevitable unhappiness, nothing can beat a more connected, caring society with the father as a role model- as envisaged in Islam.
To the less fortunate, I say, stay the course, good times will meet you half way in life.

Is Hedonism Bad?
Anything that prioritizes personal pleasure, over the collective good, is definitely bad for society and when society is sick, the individual suffers too. Excessive pleasure seeking cannot be good for the individual as well.
So, Hedonism is not good, but whether it is bad in an unjust society, is another discussion altogether
