I think this is a great and positive way to look at things. i think that it'll takes way too much than it should to satisfy some Americans' taste for luxury, but if we keep heading the road we are, we won't have as much-if any-sumptuousness. I think it's a leader's job to help their country succeed, so civilians can have better lives. After all, we didn't elect a president so he could live an even more exuberant life.
*IT takes way too much than it should......
I think that this is a good ideal to have but it is nearly impossible to achieve. If there was a sure way to make enough wealth to let everyone have basic nessecities and be happy someone would have applied it by now. Our world is competitive and the only way to make wealth and be healthy is to do it for yourself. What we should do is those of us who are fortunate enough and are wealthy should be charitable and help out others who aren't as fortunate. I don't see a way that this idea can work completely, but it is a good idea.
An idea where everyone's equal... hmmm sounds like communism
This idea is really great but the problem is is that there are about 750 BILLION people in the world today. How are we going to get that all the way around the world in the different countries' languages and cultures? It will be really hard. It does seem like what the comment above says.
This sounds like a good a idea but I don't really like communism.
