The title here almost says it all. There are people in this world whos main motivation, or SOLE motivation, for living is the acquisition of MORE MONEY. For them it’s not enough to have one mansion. They must have 10 mansions. Not enough to have one or two cars. They must have 30. Not enough to own a yacht. They must have 10. Not enough to have one billion dollars(1000 million). They must have 15! They will stop at nothing to acquire these kinds of riches. They have to be ruthless to accomplish this. They have to cheat wherever they can. They have to steal. Sometimes they kill for it. They will try to withhold as much of their money from the government at the expense of the indigent. Do they share much of it for public works to help the disadvantaged and poor? HELL NO! It is a sickness, I tell you. If you can’t work because you lost your legs and arms in a war, even though the super-rich themselves earn a fortune from that “industry”, TO HELL WITH YOU! They won’t help you. The charity is left to the rest of us who can only afford to contribute 10 or 20 dollars because we hardly have enough to pay our rent every month. It is a real damnable sickness when you totally dismiss the woes and injustices pressed on the disadvantaged for the sake of acquiring more real estate, more buildings, more boats, planes, cars.
I believe these individuals are so motivated in this fashion because they lack the only thing that can really satisfy them, fill their life with happiness and contentment, sensitize them to the feeling of caring, compassion, fairness. And that is love. They very likely lacked it in their youth, in their growing years, and now in their mature years. Probably an emptiness they just cannot fill with anything, no matter how hard they try. They must lead a wretched life within all that money they have. I feel sorry for them in that sense.
