Here we have a post about the rich. Every healthy society needs “rich” people. However, not every society does a good job of choosing who should be rich, and this post explains why it is important to have the right sort of “rich” people in charge.
Does that sound like a strange thing to say? Having the right sort of “rich” people in charge? That’s because of us don’t realize how we actually vote or how important our vote actually is. Of course, when we go to the polls, we vote, but we also vote in many other ways.
When we donate our money to a church, a charity or to political a campaign, we vote for the type of nongovernmental institutions we want to see and the type of people we want to see running those institutions. When we spend our money on the goods and services we want, we vote, and if we are careful and ethical ourselves, we spend our money on ethical businesses and people who run ethical businesses. When we choose our entertainment, we vote, and if we choose to fill our minds with good and healthy entertainment, we favor the spread of good and healthy entertainment by helping the people who provide it to prosper.
Thus, with our choices, we choose the character of the rich people who run our society.
