Humanity First

"...make as much money as possible - to ensure that his direct and close relatives would have the conditions for a life without stress, enabling them to choose what to have and what to do, with no restraints."
Luis in DifferenceMakers email 5 Nov 2010

Family first, a very common refrain, one that has been used to attest to the humanity of the worst of tyrants and villains. It has to be bigger than this, making as much money as possible for just your family (or just yourself) can be used to justify poverty for everyone else – we a need a system where money is distributed and everyone has the opportunity to contribute regardless of how much or little money those contributions generate. Humanity is the family of all humans, we are all family.
