Have you heard of mutual impoverishment?
It’s a mindset where a person believes that individuals with more money than they do should feel guilty for not sharing their money. It is an unfounded entitlement mentality where a person thinks people, organizations or groups of people owe him just because he has less. I have heard people say “what is that rich guy doing with all that money?”. I say “how is that your business? How about making your own and start distributing it?”.
It is a consumer versus value creator mentality.
Even though I am a hearty giver because of my biblical beliefs, I don’t believe socialism or whatever quasi name people give it is responsible.
I have never expected the government or another person to make life better for me. The responsible man thinks of how he can make life better for others instead of looking for a great big windfall out of someone else’s pocket.
