I was watching the Korean version of F4 drama last night. The theme of the story was to illustrate that money could not buy everything, such as love and family. But it was really ironic that the reason for the drama attracting millions of people watching it, having it in the original Japanese version, then Taiwanese version, now the Korean version was because the average Joes, i.e. us the audiences, were all so curious and envious about the power of money demonstrated in the drama. Imagine if there were no international corporations, no rich families, no fancy sports cars, no multi-million mansions, no fashion show parties involved in the drama, who would watch it?
The world population is about 6.7 billion, even just 0.1% of the population that is rich; it is about 6.7 million people living in extreme luxury. How did they accumulate all the money in their limited lifetime? Even winning the lottery several times still can’t top the amount of money these rich corporations or individuals are bagging in each year. It is amazing how the human beings have built such a society that could incorporate both the rich and the poor in the same dimension as if these are all normal.
I guess it is normal.
