I Wonder...

Sometimes I wonder why there are so many rich people in this world?

and yet there are many more poor people who are suffering and dying out on the street.

Why~~

*Makes me sad*

  4. Have you heard of the 80/20 rule? It states that 20% of the people on this planet owns 80% of the world's net wealth. Actually there are not many people who are rich, it's simply that the person comparing it, is not well off. No offense, this is the fact of life. It does not matter whether one is rich or poor, the most importantly, how one manage its own life carefully. Let me give you an example, an average married couple with an annual combine income of RM120,000-00 with 1 child are living very comfortably. Based on that income, they can easily own a Double Storey Terrace House in PJ worth RM450,000-00 and a Honda City worth RM87,00-00. The most important issue I stress here is not about the numbers, is the love of this couple compromising and living with the level that is avilable for them.

  6. Dont be sad. Instead of moaning and groaning about it, why don't you do something about it? Setting up a trust fund or volunteering in a charitable organisation might help. No worries. I will provide you with support if needed.

  7. That's life..the rich is always to selfish to help the poor. A lot of poverty problems could have been prevented if the rich were a little bit more generous. A puny 0.5% from their fortunes can make a huge difference !

  8. The rich is too selfish to help the poor. That's human nature i guess..we all tryin to hold on to every single thing we got. Make a new law, take 1% of the fortunes from rich people every year ! THAT can make a difference !

  9. Rich people will become richer and richer cause they always ambil rasuah! but the poor ones gonna have to work hard and suffer,but there's are people who work freaking hard but earn nothing cause they can;t sell their product in high price as nobody gonna buy it from them...This is the reason why there are so many poor people out there.....

  13. Charity always begin at home, and if, in future, I become rich, I'm more than willing to contribute as close to 30% of my business profit to Charity!! Well, I understand from a rough calculation, if those rich people in this world, willing to give out only a 5% to 10% of their business profit. Everyone of the poors will become at least member of middle-income group!!! that's the fact!! and not forgetting, rich people will only get richer...;)..

  18. lol, why are you guys generalizing "rich people are selfish"?

    Its human nature that is selfish. Some people less selfish that the others, but everyone is selfish. BS if you can say you are not selfish. Even Mother Teressa is selfish, using the money to build her little house thingy to accommodate those who are dying, just so she can be close to "God", instead of using those money to build better facilities. You seen those places they sleep in? like 20-30 dying people on one shitty bed and a communal washroom.

    So don't generalize rich people are selfish, human nature is in general. Will you really share you wealth if you are in that position?might say you would, but who knows. :)

  20. If all the rich buggers collabo & donated few bucks per person on a weekly or monthly basis, they could make this world a better place. Sadly, they are just buggers cos money for them is everything. They care about no shit bout the poor.

    It doesn't surprise me if they cant even spell p.o.v.e.r.t.y or worse, they don't even know if that word ever existed. Bleh.

  21. Um. Because without rich people there wouldn't be poor people or well-to-do people.

    Does that make sense? XD

  22. life's never fair.
    I am one of those poor blokes.
    I wonder, have you done any charity lately? Any donations or lift a hand to help the poor and unfortunates? Or traveling around Thailand seems more interesting, i reckon.

  25. Life is fair. Everything i creted to be paired. Men and women, poor and rich. God want us to see from other perspective. why paired things? Well, to complement each other. There are poors and richs because God want the rich to help the poor. When a hand help another needed one, a relationship is created. There are lots more to be explained..
