The myth of rugged independence has run amok. There is no such thing as independence, either in origination or action. Existence is in relation. We cannot live without death, nor can we grow rich without creating poverty. The fallacy of independence only allows us to believe that we exist outside of relation. But we can be prosperous without creating poverty. When prosperity is based on compassion it becomes a matter of the common wealth.

Those who have much are often greedy, those who have little always share. Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900)
I recently was called naïve by a friend who opinion I genuinely value, the worst part is I suspect he is actually correct. I prefer to use the term idealist but this is just splitting hairs. What prompted the exchange and what has got me thinking, is if the world would be a better place if we truly practiced the ideals we were taught as children. Is this even really possible in today’s world? For the purposes of this discussion
I will focus on one of the simplest of values.
I will attempt to make a larger point on the ideal of sharing.
