However, occasionally someone or some small group wants to stand up and say: “Look here, I (we) did this all by myself (ourselves) and the rest of you should pay us an inordinate fee for the benefit of what I (we) have done.” In such cases those taking such a position are doing so with blinders on. They are ignoring all the ways they could not have accomplished what they did without the help of hundreds or thousands of people outside their small circle. All modern technological advances, large industrial operations, any big business, has been built upon the hard work, hopes and dreams of thousands if not hundreds of thousands or millions. There is a vital spiritual as well as a physical reality involved.
Any person or group that wants to acquire inordinate amounts of the resources needed by all should keep in mind the axiom: “Culture is to people as water is to fish”. It is so true. If we want to be truly healthy we need to be aware that our financial demands on the culture affect us all. What is really in our best interests?
