You talk as if the rich don't suffer. They suffer differently from the poor, but they do suffer. T ...
Also, the poor are poor for spiritual reasons? What on earth does that mean?
You will find rich people often come from rich families and poor people come from poor families. Equal opportunities do not exist economically, educationally and as a result rich children will always have an advantage over poor children. They can go to a top university, they can study more as they dont need a part time job on the side, you could even argue in China, they can create more guanxi 关系 with their wealthy influence. Poor people can't afford to be taking people out for dinner all the time.
You obviously don't come from a poor family, I can tell from a mile off that such thinking comes from a lack of exposure. I hope you don't think poor people are lazy or stupid and thats why they are poor. You are generalising their economic situation and answering it with a lazy answer, one that shows no understanding of what it's like to be poor.
I've been there, I come from one of the poorest regions in Scotland, go watch "the scheme", it's a documentary about my hometown. I have been homeless before while trying to pay university fees on my own.I had 4 jobs, studied at university and slept on a friends couch. I have worked in shi**y call centres for 8 hours a day. Do you know for every interview I completed my company got paid £80, I completed 2 per hour, earning myself £7 out of £160 generated. I could have done my bosses job, christ most of the people in there could have. It wasn't hard. He just gave people who were interested quotes. However, he had the start up capital to create such a business.
I count myself very lucky to have carved out the life I have now, I won't lie, I do ok for myself now. But I understand that poor people are not lazy nor have "spiritual" issues. Just a lack of opportunity, one such as yourself would never understand.
