Abundance is good, it is pure health I think, when achieved in an ethical moral way. (Not through destructive crime etc)
I agree that plain charity doesn't solve problems, people need empowerment and education as well (though no-one should be allowed to be physically unhealthy or to die)
Giving people in poor countries loans for businesses is a good thing.
However the dilemna now is, even though abundance is healthy for me or anyone to have, isn't ensuring that all the other humans of the world are physically healthy and have the same education and opportunities as me more urgent and important?
So like instead of buying a new house or going on holiday or something I should support a project to build a library and buy books in a poor area. Or one of my favorite ideas, spread the availability of internet use (since there is so much knowledge, information, & opportunities on the internet)
Even though abundance is really highly enjoyable & fun.
Therefore would the only ethical abundance be if someone gives me abundance as a gift, but then is it ethical to use that abundance? Or should I sell it and give the money to raising others in poor areas up to my level?
Therefore, I may never be able to have abundance in an ethical way because there are too many problems/too much poverty in other peoples lives and I should treat others & their families the way I'd like to be treated if I was them?
Categorically defining humans separates us, because it makes us think, I am the real human, others in those other categories are less real, not as human. Maybe.
