Ever noticed how some companies want to build empires and in the process walk on the people that they have working for them? What about the countries that do this? Some people do that too and it is heart breaking for me. When is enough money enough? When is enough property enough? What would they do with paper money if it was worthless?
We have seen people with too much power and the damage that it can do. We have seen when countries do this, the damage done and still we don’t learn. So let’s look a bit deeper at the problem.
If you want to build an empire, make sure that you look at who is being affected by it. If you look at Europe at the end of 19th century, most of the major countries were all related. The Royal Family in England had family members on the thrones of, Great Britain, Russia, Germany, as well as influence on several other countries.

If a person wants to build a personal empire they need to look at who they are hurting in the process as well. Take a person who is looking for personal wealth and not caring about who they hurt and you end up with a person behaving this way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XHcPYorSJw The other end of the spectrum is that you have someone who behaves like ‘The Gates’ and put their funds to good use. www.gatesfoundation.org/
What would happen if money was worthless? Could you make something with your hands to trade for food? Could you do an honest day’s hard work to get a meal? There is a benefit from it. You know that the person you help is going to be happy that you did and at the same time you get something in return, exercise!
