money vs. maturity

with 3 comments

money maturityso i don’t really agree with this book’s message, but the title goes well with my blog entry.  this book, i think, is about how to accumulate wealth and stuff using some buddhist techniques and corporate strategies.  bleh…

what a weird title.  maturity vs. money.  who would win in a fight between maturity and money?  my money would be on… well, money.  but this isn’t what i mean.

i was thinking the other day how sometimes people with a lot of money are very immature.  meaning, they are both immauture socially and immature with their money.  and sometimes people with no money are pretty stinking mature.  so this got me wondering what the world would be like if wealth was distributed based on maturity and not on your career or your lineage or your country.  how awesome would that be huh?  and if you really needed some more money, you just need to grow up, son!

however, based on this new system, i’d probably be in the same financial state i am in.  i’m not all too mature or anything, but i know if i had more money, i’d definitely use it for others.  i try to take care of others with the money that i am given.  if i can pay for something for someone, i’ll most likely pay for it.  although sometimes this gets me in trouble, but i know that if i had more money, i’d definitely do more of this.

but then you have those really rich people who don’t give a snot about anyone else.  who don’t lend money even to their friends who might need it.  how different would the world look if mature people who knew how to help people with wealth, were given the highest salaries in the world?  man, that’d be freakin’ sweet!  all i can think of are these professional athletes or movie stars who are making millions and bajillions of dollars for one game, one movie while people are getting laid off left and right and people are dying of treatable diseases and malnutrition all over the world.  i think money should be distributed on the basis of maturity.  who’s with me?
