    it isn't wealth envy, at least in my humble opinion.  I have a few family members that are so materialistic that they will never be out of debt.  The problem I had was all they ever talked about was their possessions and what they had recently purchased and quite frankly I wanted to talk about world peace, making the world a better place, growing a garden, but I could not relate to them at all.  They were so tied in to having more and more, it was their whole life and the only thing they strive for was more money, but not love and security.  They were empty people with a lot of possessions.  I would have been happy if they just offer once in awhile to help me get to the doctor, instead of a ride on their big cabin cruiser.

    It isn't so much envy, especially when some of see that everyone IMHO wants to live in a clean and healthy environment and enjoy a few luxuries (you know like a refrigerator and microwave), but the imbalance has people sitting of gold toilet seats while others are unemployed, uninsured, and have no retirement, while our country is cutting safety nets to give big salaries to people like him.  Then there is a problem.  But most of all, I hated his show that was an hour long of setting an example of how to psychologically intimidate, and manipulate people into humiliating themselves for money.  I don't know him, and don't want to know him, but I can guess he would appear to be an empty person if you took away his money.  We have given up intellect and logic for people like him.  I liked the world better when the arts and culture were appreciated.

    Trump is the golden calf that is being worshipped .

        I've wondered if people were organizing and building communities.  If things continue the way they are going our best hope for survival will be to organize communities especially if they destroy our safety nets.  This is what has been done in the past.
