In yesterday’s blog I wrote about healing one’s spirit through living a decent life, and in the blog I talked about how it is better to provide real help to people or other living beings in need as opposed to giving them money. I was mainly aiming those words at regular people, those who do the helping at the grassroots level, helping ease suffering in their own communities. Today I would like to talk to the people at the other end of the spectrum, the billionaires and trillionaires who take the money away from the little people and stick it away in their offshore bank accounts so that they don’t even have to pay taxes on the money they are hiding USELESSLY away from the world.
What good is all that money doing sitting in a bank account doing nothing but earning more money every second in what is called interest. Well, it is this interest that interests me, because you could put just the interest you make daily to great work with it. I’m not even asking you to use your principle. In fact, let’s call my idea the INTEREST PRINCIPLE!
The Interest Principle states that if all the richest people in the world use just the interest they make on the money in their bank accounts, they could build and fund Emergency Disaster Response Teams and put them on the ground where they are needed within mere hours of whatever disaster befalls on areas of the world affected by disasters, whether those disasters are natural or man-made. These disaster teams would be well-trained people who could respond to whatever the needs of an affected area are, people who could move in and take charge to direct the residents of an area to make a concerted effort to help themselves in the best way possible. They would also have access to bringing the experts in to fight the effects of whatever kind of disaster they are responding to: firefighters for wildfires; excavators for earthquakes; oil-cleaners for oil spills; hordes of helpers for the many needs of hurricane victims; sandbaggers for impending floods and/or relief workers for those affected by flash floods… I think you get the picture. You, the people who are hoarding money uselessly, money you will never be able to spend in the next hundred generations of your families, YOU ARE THE ONES WHO CAN MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD. YOU ARE THE ONES WHO SHOULD BE MAKING A REAL DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD! Because you are the ones who owe your amazing fortunes to this world. And I’m not asking for those fortunes, all I’m asking for is the interest you make on your principle. THAT is the Interest Principle.
And that is what could help the spirit of the world to heal, because the spirit of the world desperately needs healing. How many disasters have we had in 2017 alone. Millions of people forced from their ancestral homes because of politics and war. Millions of homes destroyed by earthquakes, hurricanes, and wildfires. Millions of acres of forests necessary to cleaning the air and providing oxygen destroyed by forest fires. millions of acres of farmland necessary for growing the food of the world destroyed by floods, insects, over-chemicalization, drought, heat, whatever. The disasters of the world are too many, and the regular people of the world have limited funds to donate, yet they do donate. You, the billionaires and trillionaires of the world, you have more than enough just in the interest you earn daily. It is time for YOU to take an interest in the world, or soon you will have no one to give you their money, and they will have no money to give.
The Interest Principle just makes sense. Save the world, and you save your own income.
