I know this question is heresy for the traditionalist Westerners, but it is nevertheless a question we need start to address:
How much money does a person need to make to be happy?
Is there an ethical standard that requires those who have accumulated vast amounts of money to give back to the economic system and its constituents that has allowed them such power?
…An ethical standard that requires such benefactors to yield at least some of their money for the benefit of what we collectively call ‘our world’?
Is there a mental standard of the same? A standard for sanity?
Can we be justified as deeming insane a person who demands more than X-amount of money to be happy and content ?
We can no longer afford to have faith in the transcendent hand of freedom. We must begin to ask these hard questions.
Does the capacity to make a tremendous amount of money equate to a right to control the world?
