What Are People Like Donald Trump Showing Us About Ourselves?
The story in the video below is a reflection of what the entire system exists as. For wealth to exist for a few, there exist many whose labor is used to produce the wealth, and who are kept trapped in that labor through survival. Trump is merely using the system as it is designed / allowed to exist.
Rather than blame and point fingers and talk about how nasty rich people are, the question we can ask ourselves is - where and how in our daily lives / in our minds do we consider ourselves only, while disregarding those in the world who do not and will never have what we have? And just as Trump said to the architect 'I've already spent so much money on this, I don't want to pay more' -- where and how in our own daily lives and minds do we say 'I'm already invested in my own life / my own interest, I don't have the time or resources to stand up for those who have nothing'?
We don't need more blame and attacking, we need self reflection and self honesty and the patience to investigate the actual core / origin points of world issues in ourselves / our own minds and lives.
