"Perhaps we should just all become poor…" I muttered to myself. "Why… that’s a stroke of genius!" Isn’t it?
If all of us shared the wealth in the world, then we’d all be treated as equal. Communism, marxism, a lot of ism’s there, but what if we were all to become poor? It is said that the poor are those who will help. The poor are the ones that know the value of life, and how to be happy. Money can’t buy happiness, for millionaire’s think they’re only so-so in financial regard. They are forced to live for others, their wealth giving them no joy beyond materialism, but it is those without possessions that know the best things in life are free.
Lot of quotes in there. At any rate, what would happen if all of us were cast into poverty, with only enough to live? Would we not then look outwards rather than in? Why are the lives of third class citizens worth less than those from the first class? It’s all human life, we’re all one people.
I wonder why people haven’t thought about the ideas I have. If they had, in theory, the world would be perfect wouldn’t it? Oh so young, oh so naive, oh so full of virtue. The innocent adolescent, searching for his identity and yada yada yada. Yes yes yes, I know all that. But really, what am I missing? Why is now the age I come up with all these ideas and problems and solutions, and yet the adults, four times my age with all their wisdom and experience, think differently? I’m definitely missing something.
