people are poor.
how do we lift them from it?
business. economic activity is the only way but it’s too slow with everyone having equal opportunities.
you need some people to become the models for other people.
then, everyone is for himself because everyone wants the largest share.
business is the necessary evil to lift people out of abject poverty
but when the super-riches has accumulated unlimited amount of riches, they have the responsibility to redistribute wealth.
maybe for survival or it just happened like that,
but the response of cells to stimulus always decreasing over time.
that’s why your world is defined. you never live with everything you’ve ever heard or said in your head.
what is in your brain is the functional parts of your belief.
the rich adapt to being rich, just as the poor adapt to being poor. that’s human nature that we adapt to pain, to fear, to happiness.
but how do people justify how much to give?
it’s empathy. empathy is what artificially stimulates our brain by imagining stimulus to understand the emotions that individual goes through. to put yourself in someone else’s shoes.
but i also think it’s responsibility. a responsibility that comes from inside yourself that as such a lucky person so education and privileged, we should give what we have to people who don’t have it.
everyone is selfish, but you are willing to do other things when you realize that responsibility.
