The wealthy are knowingly killing the poor
They are dying!
We live on a planet that is our home, and this home we share with every single person alive today, no matter their nationality.
Every person is our family member–a brother or a sister. Family is supposed to look out for one-another. We (each one of us) are supposed to be there for each other, to fill a need that the other person or people have.
However, this is not what is happening. Somewhere along the line, over the past thousands of years we have become overly selfish. We have people who have attained more wealth than some countries and yet they are out to get more, the whole while people in a country a continent away are suffering. People there are starving, homeless, suffering disease etc. How can a person justify such selfishness?
We have nations lying about another in order to invade them and steal their resources, or to destabilize them for other political gain, and they turn a blind eye to another nation that has people dying.
I could go on, but I believe you get my point.
Let me say one more thing, we have people in a country with massive wealth, yet in their own country they have people losing their homes, and yet the wealthy do nothing to help. So if they don’t help their own countrymen, how can I expect them to help people in another country?
Either way, I don’t get it.
I know some will say, “We can’t help everyone”. I understand that, but why not help a few, and then ask them to pass it on when they can? Why not do a good deed instead of hoarding your wealth while others suffer? Are people really that cold hearted? Are their hearts made of stone?
I have heard a wealthy person say, “Greed is good”. I disagree. Greed is the fault of so many people suffering. Greed is the downfall of society.
We have hundreds of millions of people dying because of greed, the greed of a few people.
Why don’t you fly to a country where people are dying, look into their eyes and tell them that you have millions, hundreds of millions, or billions of dollars in your account, (whatever the case may be) but that you will not help them.
Seriously, I dare you!
