Wealth And Property Require Room In Our Consciousness
I have long wondered if wealth and property have a tendency to impair our perception of reality. I have seen some evidence that they do. In particular, the pursuit of wealth and possessions tends to trump all other matters of concern. This is particularly true when available resources cannot meet the demand for them. I believe that our concerns with property and possessions can even interfere with our capacity for something that is required for our survival: empathy.
