Rich People Are People Too

On discovering that rich people have all of the same problems as not rich people, except for money problem, reaction was mixed among the rich and not rich. Worth a look, if you actually want to understand something that most of us do not have to concern ourselves with.

Or you could worry about important stuff like the invention of the bolo ball, as you wish.

The fact remains that different people have very different reactions to either wealth or poverty, both being relative how could they not? The advantage of wealth is being able to act on your fears and fantasies, but it doesn’t negate the fact that they are fears and fantasies. When we de-humanize either the rich or the poor, we de-humanize ourselves.

Apology Accepted

Now if you will excuse me, I have to go get my ladder and saddle.
