Two things have surprised me….

Things…what humanity will do and the intensity that they do it –  for material gain surprises me.

There are several ways to acquire wealth; earn it, inherit it,  marry into it, win the lottery or steal from someone who has wealth.

Children born in difficult family situations often rise above their limitation and become successful in a profession; or by using their skill in a trade, work their way up the ladder of success and a comfortable living. Others may work for one of these established people and become wealthy by saving a portion of their earnings and investing wisely.

Defining wealth:  What makes someone wealthy?  Things? A large home in a quiet neighborhood, nice automobile, large boat, recreational vehicle, jewelry, or all of these things that represent a large bank account.

Who is considered wealthy?  Is it mearly a certain standard of living, income, or material things other than what you have at the moment; or greed to have it all and lack the initiative or intelligence to earn your own things?

Have you heard the aphorism, creating or earning wealth is easier than keeping it? 

Economy changes can wipe out investments, savings, the equity in that large home, and the value all those nice toys (things)?

Robbers, will break into homes, businesses for the conceived wealth that may be housed there. The risk of being caught is overcome by their confidence in the system if caught, and their perceived intelligence to have arranged such a scheme that they will never be suspected.

Dishonesty and greed has no limit.  Someone’s perceived idea of what would make them wealthy has fired the desire to have everything, and have it  all right now.

A friend/neighbor who worked overtime, saved their money, sacrificed expensive vacations, did his own yard work and may have a safe containing a large coin collection, perhaps some investments and life insurance for his family doesn’t actually feel wealthy. They probably help a friend in need on occasion and give to charity; they rarely consider themselves affluent, they’re just putting aside all they can afford for retirement.

The greedy see that person a target – and plot how they can acquire the assets of this honest, hardworking, trusting neighbor. 

Robbers steal, greedy connive, politicians plot schemes to tax others wealth, people who worked their way to a position of inflence secretly cooperate with colleagues for mutual personal gain or a promise of a better position. (a/k/a covering ones hind parts).

 Getting back to the “two things” that surprise me.

1- The huge amount of dishonesty that exists in personal and public life.

2- What people of position or influence will do to assist a dishonest person cover their trail.

And, one more – broken promises.  I will deal with that another day.

   “Have you ever thought (about) who would benefit most from your death?   If you are a loner without much family, or you meet someone who suddenly seems  interested in your finances for no apparent reason,  Beware: You could become the victim of life insurance fraud.

    The dishonest people in the world are also normally very good at flattery, charm, smooth talking….making another person believe what is presented — and sometimes, if you’re lucky, you see through the smoke screen and can get away before it’s too late. And then sometimes, you’re not lucky enough to get away……and we can only pray those dishonest people don’t get away either.
    Just some thoughts….
