Every line of what Hank Green says is fantastic and resonates so powerfully with me!
Hank Green of the SciShow:
Rich people can do what they want.
Now, when I say rich it’s important to note that I’m not talking about the 99% vs the 1%.
I’m talking about if you have: running water, electricity, a computer and regularly can afford to eat meat. You are a rich person, on the earth.
Even those of us who don’t have it great in America, have it better off than a whole lot of other people.
If you can have a hot shower, that’s the peak of luxury to me.
Assuming you are a first world-er, American, European or Japanese
you consume on average, as much stuff as 32 Kenyans.
