20. I think that there is a point where wealth

becomes meaningless. Their view of the world is so askew they don't see that everything is cancelling out. Maybe the acumulation of crimes against us all destroys a world order and democracy, but mass acumulation of wealth will do the same.
An article today said the king of Saudi Arabia just claimed three trillion dollars by arresting "his adversaries" I don't remember the wording. What the hell is three trillion dollars? It's a meaningless number. Billions is meaningless. It's power, control, the ability to make or break your surroundings. The numbers mean nothing.
Where is our wealth? I want peace, health and a furure for my children, and the knowledge that when I die they will go on. This is real. Their large numbers will eat them first then disappear in their fear of an unrelenting planet and it's inhabitants.
