We love sharing the views of billionaires about the world. As if, simply by being rich, their views are the best.
If someone much poorer were to go against the views, have their own view, the instant remark back would be: “Well, do you have a billion dollars?”
Yet, billionaires have mainly one thing proven: that they know the path to becoming billionaires.
In a capitalistic world, wealth takes precedence over every other metric. Yet, there are very smart people who aren’t billionaires whose lives we should emulate instead.
We think we want to be billionaires or rich, when in reality… We just want to be happy and do something meaningful.
Unfortunately, we forget that sometimes and chase after what gets the most attention in the world.
