“Cheer Up, You Rich Cunt – you’re sorted!” “Is that so…?”

I dunno..this is summat that ALWAYS bothers me; the implicit “working-class” belief that money will somehow buy happiness, signifying the end of ALL an individual’s problems. And don’t say such an attitude doesn’t exist – it’s prevalent amongst people who fall into the “poor” bracket. Don’t believe me? Why is it that when a “poor” person looks at a person plagued with emotional problems, who happens to be rich, more often than not they’ll say: “Yeah, right…. your wealthy life is SOOOO hard!” I mean where in life’s rulebook does it say that money will ensure an individual’s OVERALL well-being? Falling into the “working-class” bracket myself, I can personally attest that being out of pocket -especially when the wolf’s at the door – is anything but a laughing matter. An abundant bank account certainly increases opportunities and lessens your chances of landing in debtor’s gaol, but what else? When your every material, want, need and desire is satisfied, what other wonders do the riches bring? Inner peace? Spiritual harmony? True love? It is my EXPLICIT belief that, at best, money will solve only HALF your problems – in some cases, it even adds to the burdens. Money does not absolve or invalidate whatever non-material needs and problems a person may have. Feeling lovelorn, unfulfilled, alienated and generally shitty are not the exclusive monopolies of any one class…

Made my point?

I hope so…

…I’m out…..
