A survey made by Nanfang Daily revealed that 90% of the riches in China admitted that money had brought safety and upsets. The journalists interviewed 60 richest people and 59 of them had the same problem, that is, they feel unhappy and unsafe.

Why do they feel unhappy and unsafe? Are they afraid that they would be robbed or kidnapped? Many people dreaming of having much money and leading a very luxurious life. However, they can not realize their dream so that they feel annoyed. For those riches, they should be happy. But they do not. What makes them feel so?

I think you have answered the problem yourself Leopold, money never will guarantee happiness, rich people have to employ body guards to ensure their safety and therefore become like prisoners in their own home.
I would like financial security for myself and my family, but I don't think I would enjoy being rich.

Well, maybe some of them might have accumulated their wealth illegallly. That makes them feel unhappy and unsafe. Or their children are fighting with each other for his huge wealth. It is said that only three people choose to donate their money to the society after their deaths. Maybe those people are worried how to deal with money if they die one day.

Ask for more. That's why they can't feel satisfied.

Very true, the more they have, the more they want,
it's called greed.

Having too much of a good thing can make you sick. That goes for many things in life! However, it seems to me that poor people are even more unhappy and unsafe. Being poor is even worse than being rich because they don't know where their next meal is coming from.

Advertising tells people they are inadequate if they don't get all these good things for their families, so a few see the answer as robbery. Who will they rob, the rich; who placed the advertisements, the rich.

But isn't this why we are all trying to achieve a harmonious socialist society? That's what my students tell me in the debates on this subject.

As the gap between the rich and the poor are wider and wider, many poor people hate the rich. The rich can have several apartments and their cars. But the poor can not afford to buy their house. How can we bridge the gap?
