I understand now why so many people wish that a major survival catastrophy would happen, something to turn the world as we know it back 300 years to when only survival was a basic need. These people with all this money would suddenly be no better off than anyone else, probably worse off because they have been putting their energies into making money at the expence of everyone else and suddenly they have nothing, no schemes, no useful skills, and their money is worth nothing. A new start. Yes I know about the hardships and possible loss of life, and in reality I don't wish that on other people, but just the same I do see where they are coming from.
I think it is the feeling of being so powerless to do anything.
Sorry, running on. Get me started on pet hates and there is no end to it!
