            don't forget making a complete stop in the middle of the road before they crawl around whatever corner they're turning.

              Not saying millionaires don't have a moral obligation to do good things with their money but billionaires are another level of greed.
              that's true, but i don't think it's purely because the words sound similar. both groups have way more money than they need, which is a pretty rare thing. billionaires are on an entirely different level, but they're a bit closer than just rhyming titles.

                And who is it that decides what the "good things" are? That's a subjective term, the definition of which should be decided only by the one who owns the money.

                  Disagree. Good things are for the benefit of others or everyone

                  Bad things are all about self.

                  This is within the context of "how to make the world a better place"

                    So, if enough people decide to take your stuff for their benefit it's OK?

                      I still say they are so different that referring to them in the same breath doesn't make as much sense as people think, and if the words didn't rhyme people wouldn't.

                        No, what? Taking other people's stuff for your own benefit is the opposite of what I'm saying. My point is if every individual acts for the benefit of everyone else, we ALL benefit.

                        Millionaires have a moral obligation to use their money for good things. Good things meaning the benefit of others.

                              But from where does this moral obligation originate? The Bible? To me this obligation thing sounds more like a cliché than a moral edict.

                                The core parts of Christianity relating to kindness and love are found in all the religions.
                                I believe whole-heartedly in love being the answer to many problems in the world.
                                That's a cliché too.
                                Some clichés are true, and it's sad they lose their power through repetition.
                                Morals are a work in progress that we are all co-creating.
                                ​​​​​​If you don't believe it is moral to be kind to each other, then there's no argument I can give.. We just disagree. But I do believe it is moral to be kind to each other, and therefore if we are in a position of wealth, money or otherwise, it is a moral obligation to share that and use the position to the benefit of all. I don't get that from the Bible. People in power have twisted this concept to make people give their money to the church etc but that's the evil of religion.. It doesn't mean the things they twist are wrong.
                                ​​​​​​
