“I think all of us here today would acknowledge that we’ve lost that sense of shared prosperity.” Barack Obama, 27 March 2008
Any prosperity is not an expanding and inclusive concept is not really prosperity but greed and self indulgence of the worst kind.
This is informed by the way I see love. Love is an expanding concept, the more you are loved the more you have to offer to those around you. As soon as love becomes an end in itself it is more about selfishness, greed and is mean-spirited, and not love at all.
