I assume by society we are talking about within a country? Personally i don't see why some random person who lives 100 miles away should mean more to me than some random guy who lives 2000 miles away, that may well have been different 200 years ago where communities relied on each other and working together was mutually beneficial however there are now 70 million people in the UK with heritage from all over the world, i don't feel any connection or sense of loyalty to people just because they have a British passport. Living in the UK puts you in the top 10% of the world in terms of wealth, even having money in the bank puts you in the top 8% of the worlds richest. Why should someone simply being born into the same country as me entitle them to priority treatment over the rest of the world? Especially when certain parts of the world are so much worse off.
Either way i suppose it would depend on the individual person and how they gained their wealth, someone who became rich through innovation and business acumen can probably sleep easier than say someone who made their money off exploitation like these pay day loan companies then again i suppose it would depend on the individuals moral compass.Last edited by Darth Stewie; 09-04-2013 at 02:25.
