Money Power !
A penniless person is a walking corpse !
A bit a harsh statement but is the truth, ofcourse the reference is to currency thou the other way too, is truthful
Most of us must have gone through this - we meet a stranger, strike a conversation, usually the 3rd line would be on wealth
We begin to mutually weigh, respective financial status more than academic, professional qualifications or for that matter, the good deeds !
I think this quality in us is cultivated right from our childhood times, like we over hear elder's conversations
On wealth, how they gossip on other's status, express their happiness over money inflow and displeasure on loss of wealth
The mood at home also vary accordingly hence the concept of currency, sediment strongly in the learning mind -
Which translates in the child's social behaviours too, school level classmates are chosen as friends as per their respective families financial status
& to establish their wealth power amidst friends, the child demands or learn to blackmail their parents to yield
These children at adult age, despite education & knowledge, find it very difficult to erase the thoughts on wealth
Hence, consciously or subconsciously, they either gel with the wealthy or just ignore the poor !
Many exhibit compassionate quality to go with the trend and to maintain social decoram
Ofcourse there are exceptions but such personalities are seldom money minded
Let's honestly look at this -
Say how many of us, apart from alms to the needy are prepared to take them home as a family member ?
We can't and we won't because of social stigma and due to our personal reservations
History has loads of writings on 'wise people, money less', wandering on the streets as vagabonds
Capitalism is the only religion, all powerful hence human's have no choice but to fall in line
So if your bank and wallet balance is Zero, better get prepared for inhuman treatments
And learn to adjust, never complain
It's simple, either you earn and walk like a human or walk to be treated like a corpse -
Money define you 🙏
