This is my second attempt. Lost the first while trying to add a photo. Somehow the photo always goes to the top of the page. That is fine. Replace Government with the spoiled of our planet. Those who consume and waste resources for wants and desires while others dwindle.
Here is an article from the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) found today on MSN.ca indication that health is directly linked to wealth. Something we’ve known for a long time. Their shortfall is forgetting to mention that even though our country is prosperous it does not take into account where this created wealth is going.
The fruits of our labour, the resources found within our borders combined with Mankind’s collective ingenuity does not all stay here to be shared by us. The majority of the profits that stay here goes to a few pockets rather then shared evenly or justly while a good chunk goes to individuals residing in other countries. Once there amongst other things, it is used to build weapons, fences, and other communities.
Most of the profits from this prosperity is used in the abuse and waste of resources for things of want and desire, and not for need, by spoiled individuals.
It is not only physical health the CMA is talking about here. We always vent and brag about the arts and cultures yet those things take money. Those of the lower income after the basic needs are somewhat covered have little left over to participate.
Those in the lower income brackets can not afford healthy foods as they also have to cover rent, clothe and travel to work (for the lucky with jobs). There is none left over for organized sport, movies, plays, travel and the like. They use $33K per year income as a dividing point! Shit I have averaged less then $20K per year for the past 9 years! After rent, food, clothe (nothing fancy), medical extras (no plans), short close vacations I barely have enough to add to my already small pension plans. Never mind travel to other destinations or countries or paying for a hotel room!
Sure I am in a much better position then many but if the wealth produced in this country by our people were to stay here and be divided equally amongst all of us here I would be much wealthier. The Americans would be developing less weaponry and Israel would not be continuing to bully out the Palestinians out of their lands (lands that should be shared!) and those millionaires from abroad investing here would stop getting fatter on our dime.
One should not be getting in debt in order to participate in the arts and cultures yet it is happening here. I am not one wanting to be a charity case in a decade because I now foolishly spend on wants and desires.
Project 10 Billion is about leveling these evolved injustices. Not only here but everywhere on this planet.
The uneven distribution of wealth must be addressed on a Global scale if we really want to not only cure but also prevent future medical needs and expenses.
CMA help me make this a better planet for all!
