    • Rich people have many problems too. Bad health or children with bad health, some live
      where wars are raging. Problems of managing companies, of personal relations, etc.

        • Do you know any rich who does not give to poor? In my country rich people (1%) pay
          more than 40% taxes and give billions in charities (Gates foundation and many others).

          • sorry sir. Tax goes to govt. charity to foundations is ok, but sometimes that may be for tax exemption. without foundation rich can help poor directly by helping for medical treatment,build home for homeless,educate poor child etc. Many rich are helping poor, but not all, if all help then no poverty will be in the world. “23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” (Matthew 19:23-24)

  1. I think you are right, everything is relative… Since wastage & consumerism is such an issue these days in the developed world (over consumption) the quote falls flat with me.

  2. I agree so long as the rich use the wealth they can never use to invest in a cause that will benefit those in real need. Too many of the super rich hoard their wealth in a miserly manner.

    • “Too many”? How do you know and what is too many? Is it majority? Do they hoard their wealth or use it
      for trusts for members of the family? If rich pay taxes and create hundreds of thousands of jobs why
      should anyone say: “It’s not enough? Let’s raise your taxes”.
      I believe that people on welfare should not be allowed to vote.

        You are right about the use of the words too much and too little.
        However, there is also a difference in too little having too much versus having too little.

        If you are interested, check the brief video I am referring to in this post.


        Then check what I used as an an example of how this man used his wealth.


        I value your opinion. Wise investments can also be used if the Corporations products further a worthy cause too if the profits are used wisely to expand jobs and opportunity.

        • I am convinced that our opinions have a lot in common. However, I want to stress
          that many problems today caused by attempts to use a hybrid economic structure:
          a mixture of capitalism with socialism. When government possesses high percentage
          of the country’s resources and dictates what private sector must do it is already
          not a capitalism. It is a very dangerous step to dictatorship.

          • JF
            Keep in perspective that the words democracy and capitalism are recent words in history that have come about only in the past four hundred years.
            That is a short time in history and many past civilizations have failed as a result of wealth disparities.

            All these descriptions are meaningless words to a hungry man watching his family starve. There have also been in history good and bad dictators.

            Moderation and wisdom is sourly needed today along with a great leader in my opinion.

            • How can you choose a good leader when voters are ignorant and brainwashed by media?
              Even more important is the fact that foreign countries (often enemies) finance
              presidential elections due to a new method of online fundraising (look at its screen).
              Anyone can break election laws by giving millions in small increments ($200 or less)
              using just one credit card and different names.

  3. Reblogged this on PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS and commented:

    What is excess? What is justice? Should we all try to succeed and to become rich or should we solve all problems only by increasing taxes? What is too much and too little? Please read my thoughts in the old post in the writing challenge and don’t miss facts about rich people in the post.
