I think we must learn how to use resources that are coming to us from elsewhere such as Gamma rays or UV, or resources that are not "used up" such as hydro (which in essence is "using" gravity as an energy source).

Sure, morality is a good thing, but how can we exercise it when our very survival is at stake? How is it in anyway possible to maintain a moral code of conduct while subsequently being exploited for it. Trying to be a mother Teresa in a place where life is not about good or bad, but rather live or die is in my opinion futile.
I'm all for the conception of morality, yet it strikes me as impossible under certain circumstances. What do you guys think?

The guy.... wrote:What is WEALTH?
Money gives you options, it empowers you to accomplish objectives that you might not have been able to accomplish without it..
For example if bum finds $2.00 they become empowered with the option to buy a coffee or a hot dog..
To be empowered with the option to build a house you need a lot more money..
But the bottom line is, WEALTH is having the option, (the ability to achieve the objective).. NOT HAVING THE MONEY...
So what is WEALTH..
I say wealth is being MORE empowered.. (having more options and capabilities)
Thus anything that results in your having (more options and capabilities) is that which results in MORE WEALTH.. irrelevant of how much money you have..
If we all acted in such away as to provide more options and capabilities to ALL others, then ALL would become MORE WEALTHY..
So here is some wealth for you..
