Is Society Unfair

We live in a society where celebrities and sport stars are amongst the highest paid individuals in the world. Is this fair should they be paid more that doctors or scientists those who actually change and maintain the world that we live in. Should people be allowed to become multi-billionaires through digging up oil. a natural resourse, surely this should be shared amongst everyone or given to one opportunistic individual

I think you are right. Its stupid that people playing a game get paid that much. Its the entertainment thing though. Singers do the same thing, all they do is sing and look good and they get paid big bucks. The fact is that its the masses paying them with our interest and investment in them. Its sad, but doctors, scientists, and teachers should be paid more because of what they invest in US.

exactly and when scientists do discover something great someone else is the one that milks it for all its worth and the one that dicovered it gets very little or nothing

Definately have to agree with you on this one! It's certainly unfair that sport stars are paid the highest - especially footballers (but that's another arguement!) Scientist, doctors and the nursing profession should be paid their worth!
