A problem we see with our society is that rich people seem to want –nee NEED!– to be richer so they do things that make them more money even though they really don’t need all that money and could, in theory, make do with a little less profit and help society.

My new thought is that the problem is that most people are DEFINED by the size of their bank account. It would help society immensely if we as a society came to define people’s worth more by how much they help other people than strictly the size of their bank account!

But I think for that to work we need ti change the way we all think – not so easy!
