The Perils Of Prosperity: I

The Perils Of Prosperity: I saw an amazing little commercial the other day. The ad was for a service that delivered your pet´s drugs directly to your door. Now you may wonder, “what´s so amazing about that?” Well consider how incredible this service is when viewed through the lens of how much of the world lives. First off, many people around the globe can´t even afford to feed, clothe, and shelter themselves, much less a pet. Moreover, even if they do have a pet, they couldn´t possibly afford to have it treated if it got hurt or became sick. That´s assuming that they could even find a veterinarian when many countries don´t have enough doctors to take care of their people. So when you look at it in that light, that business probably couldn´t even exist in 80% of the world. (cont)
