NormanH Posted August 10, 2011 Share Posted August 10, 2011 [quote user="Christine Animal"]That's exactly it RH, when people become "rich" as they have worked very hard and deserve it, others who have sat doing nothing resent it and are jealous.Of course many have a difficult time in life, but a thing which always makes us smile here in France when there is trouble in the suburbs, etc. is the view of the buildings where these "poor people" have to live and the number of satellite dishes on all the balconies! If they are sometimes interviewed inside these flats about there dreadful situation, one can often see a large TV screen and a chaine hifi in the background. [/quote]It is also possible to work very hard for long hours on low wages and never become rich, or be rich simply because of inheritance. The fallacy is that having material things equates to moral superiority. Not everyone who is 'rich' has worked for it. (Consider George Osborne) If we promulgate that then we can expect people to want possessions to prove their worth. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
