We humans, in order to live happy and healthy lives, need compassion in large quantities. The reason why we humans are having such difficulties is that the supply of compassion is too low to meet demand. The problem is that Capitalists who have a strangle hold on the world see compassion as an obstacle to creating wealth, and so they are doing all they can to destroy our supply of it. More and more, we humans are being asked to choose between wealth and compassion.
If we are to regain the health and happiness necessary for the survival of humanity, we all must begin to choose compassion over wealth.
