Well, I had more posts to post, but, I opted to converse with my brother and sister. I need to converse with my other brother, but, that’ll have to wait until tomorrow. I don’t see them near enough, but, they’re still my best friends.
I don’t know if you all have such a relationship with your siblings or not. If you don’t, you should pursue it.
If I say, “I need”, they come and provide. If they say “I need”, I move and give my best. This is because we all know the difference between “need” and “want”. None of mine would ever say “I need” if they only wanted. And, they know the same is true for me. I don’t recall any specific lectures about the subject from either of my parents, but, this was instilled in us by both. It simply came natural to understand the difference.
Providing “need” and “want” is distinguished from providing “help”. “Help” should be provided as to prevent the need for “need”, never “want”.
Understanding the difference between “need” and “want” is critical to not just a micro-economic group, but, also macro-economics. Through the decades of my study, providing for a “want”, rather than a “need”, has always led to an economic decline. I’ve never seen it work otherwise. Mandatory “help”, that is to say, government confiscation of wealth, to provide for a “want”, rather than a “need”, has always led to greater impoverishment, which, creates actual “needs”.
What does this have to do with the video above? ….. Well, you can make your own connection. But, I will say this. There is an end to constantly and consistently providing for “wants”, rather than “needs”. Providing for “wants” creates more “needs”.
Even animals, when confronted with needs will become vicious. When sentient beings are deprived of their “needs” with no refuge, nor a place to retreat to ….. well, we’re on the eve of destruction.
