There is enough for everyone's need but not for everyone's greed- Mahatma Gandhi

"There is enough for everyone's need but not for everyone's greed"--words from a great person Mahatma Gandhi. Indeed, it's true! I remember the "Parable of the Forest" everytime I hear these words. Knowledgeable inhabitants on earth are remarkable and with abundant resources enough to sustain the world but because of earthlings' greediness, supplies/things are always not enough. Humans tend to compete with one another, can't be satistfied and contented so as a result thousands or even millions of people are in great starvation. When I see how hard to become poor, sometimes I asked- is it a sin to become poor? Rich and poor differs significantly in material things but I think not in spiritual life but still poor are always deprived of so many things. I was thinking if resources are equally shared, do you think cries from empty stomachs will be reduced or will be wiped out from the face of the earth forever? Do you dream a world where rich and poor are treated the same in every aspect? (Well just in my mind)

well, i would like to quote a word with the respect to your response, condorest an english haberdasher claim that this problem would be solved by the rational age to come, he added that men will acquired a new type of knowledge to solve all their problems. but in my point of view starvation, poverty, greediness will never turn away from the face of the world. there is no point in my assumption that the rich and poor will never be equal. money will ruled the world till the end. the hope for the poor is to challenge their daily outcomes wisely n become rich. there will never be an equality in power.
