Two Types of People

There are two types of people. The first type is not too bad off and has some idea that leading an ethical life will have a payoff of improved conditions for self, others, and his environment. In other words he or she is in touch to some degree with the pro-life purpose line.  They feel that the socio-economic “pie” can be grown larger. They can have success in life by helping to grow it.

Those of the second type of people have closed themselves off from the pro-life purpose line so far through unethical activities that they do not conceive that the “pie” can be made bigger. For them the pie remains the same, or even shrinks in size. They cannot create or grow more socio-economics, and they don’t like the idea much of others doing so either. Their only idea of success, then, is to take a piece of someone else’s share of the pie. They do not feel like they are getting ahead unless they are stepping on someone else.
