Wealth Inequality and my Responsibility as a Global Citizen
According to, inequality.org: “Wealth inequality can be described as the unequal distribution of assets within a population.” For example: “The United States exhibits wider disparities of wealth between rich and poor than any other major developed nation.” Accordingly, if we expand this definition to all of humanity, we might simply say that, wealth inequality is the unequal distribution of assets (represented by the distribution of money) within and throughout all of humanity. Why is this a problem, you ask? Because the distribution of assets within humanity as a consequence of humans relationships to everything – as a represented by the distribution of money within humanity – also happens to represent the consequential outflow of all that has ever been wrong within and as mankind since the beginning of time.
Have a look: what does the distribution of money represent but a race that’s gone in the wrong or opposite direction of life? Instead of human-beings cooperating to ensure dignified lives for all, we as innocent beings entering into the human world are as children quickly indoctrinated into the realities of inequality, forced to compete and survive only to find at the end of the line that our lives were nothing more than lies. What else could “death” at the end of the line represent other than the obvious conclusion - is we’ve gone in the wrong direction.
So, now that we’ve got the cause and consequence of all that is wrong with humanity figured out (inequality as represented in the distribution of money), I as one responsible global citizen to another suggest that we as ones of humanity immediately begin addressing the problem of inequality beginning with a course correction to reduce the state of inequality by redistributing (step-by-step) all the money to all of humanity. In this way, we as humanity give unto one another that which we would ask be given to ourselves, an equal share.
Finally, it is important that we consider that, the only way we as humanity are going to enable ourselves to equally redistribute the assets of humanity is if we also equally redistribute the responsibility for caring for such assets. Here in this equation, one is able to see that with equality comes responsibility and with responsibility comes equality. Hence the importance of all of humanity uniting in cooperation to stand equally as one to take responsibility everywhere that one is able.
