Subject: RE: BS: 58% Say The Rich Deserve Their Wealth
I totally agree with Rapparee, that having enough to get by is sufficient. But I'd go one further. I honestly believe that great wealth and valuable possessions would be a burden I'd not want. With all that comes security problems, bodyguards, fear of robbery, theft or even kidnap. Insurance, maintenance of houses, cars, 'staff', organising an 'empire', managing vast accounts, all sorts of stuff which I would hate. I adore my simple little life. I have modest means, not too much of anything, a life which is very easy to run and maintain. And I try to help my African in-laws in their poverty as best I can. I doubt whether any extremely rich person is as happy as me!
