One thing is absolutely for sure: I am not jealous on either the superrich or rich people. I simply can’t see the need of being superrich. That 1% has so much money — or values — it is hard or impossible to imagine for normal people.

Today 0,5% people are starving on our planet. How much do they need to get a decent life? If you take a break and think about who has overused the resources on our planet and — are indirect — responsible for the reason some people still live in poverty.

Normal people don’t overuse our planet. It is the rich people and those who pretend to be rich, travel to much, live in much too many and too big houses that overuse. They buy new flats in big cities to invest. They never use these flats. They invest to reduce tax. The property increase in value faster than bank interest. Normal people can not afford to live there, unless they have several jobs.

Can you see some new views — I suppose — you have never seen before?

How did they get the ground to build these new exclusive flats? They buy neighbourhoods, throw out the people living there, demolish the old houses and build complexes those who used to live there can’t afford to buy. They literary let people live in the gutter because of their own greed for money. The footprints in such a process is huge. Who is responsible?

We live on the same planet. We was born naked. We needed protection. We live here with the same rights and we have to share to survive.

The superrich and the rich people is responsible for most of the waste on this planet. Unfortunately a lot of this waste end up in the ocean. The fish I eat contains plastic. I don’t want to eat it, and I don’t want to go for a swim and walk over plastic along the shore before I dive into water with old shopping bags from the posh lifestyle of the rich people.

All traces goes back to the rich people. Everything I buy is wrapped in plastic. I recycle it. Kids from a school class found plastic from 32 different countries on their local beach when they did a spring cleanup. The logos on the plastic indicated a posh lifestyle.

Do you need more explanations?

I am quite sure my lifestyle has a vey small footprint, lesser than my share.

Hope you take good care. I do.

You might know me, but you don’t. I got wet in the rain, but now always soaked. I thought a lot. High thoughts and also loud and clear.
