There is NO compassion if you are making much more than someone else for your work. We all owe our daily existence to the labours of other persons. Our public washrooms need to be cleaned, people are employed to check us through airports, no one gets well in a hospital unless the hygiene is maintained, and nobody eats unless the food is harvested.Thinking your work is much more important and deserving of a bigger wage/salary with plenty of perks is NOT compassionate. It is selfish, and ultimately GREEDY (A person who commented on my blog)
Lot's of people were employed to make this boat. In our world, this boat may seem like complete access and 'overkill'.
In other people's world, buying a pair of shoes may be viewed as complete access and 'overkill' because it has nothing to do with the centrality of the next meal.
It's easy to 'lash out' at the seeming greedy purchase of this boat. It's equally easy for a starving child to lash out at the "greed" of a Canadian having more then 1 pair of shoes.
I am extremely tempted to reply in greater detail with the individuals comments above. I humbly request you to offer your 2 cents. Is she on to something? Are you greedy for making more then someone else? If you make more then someone else, are you claiming your work is more important? Dear Canada, what do you think?
