Exemplary and Small People

“Exemplary people understand matters of justice; small people understand matters of profit.” -Confucius

There is absolutely nothing wrong with wealth… except when there is an over-accumulation of it in the hands of a tiny tiny minority, while the vast majority are simply trying to survive and that tiny minority is either oblivious or uncaring of their plight. It is then that wealth turns into greed, and those who advocate for even more wealth accumulation in the hands of the very few turn into small people.
