In a third category you have people like Al Gore. Al Gore has adopted the mantra of Global Warming and has been using his bully pulpit to push that agenda. When I first heard about Al Gore he was a somewhat conservative Democrat. He talked and voted pro-life. His wife took a public stand against vulgarity in music lyrics. I saw some value in his life.
Then he decided he wanted to be president. As a Democrat the only way that will happen is if you drink the kool-aide and get on board the left wing agenda. Fortunately for the country he did not make it to president but he has done all he can to make the world green. He is worried that your car and air conditioning are going to ruin the planet. He was been a driving force behind the hysteria of Global Warming and how the world is dying. In the process he has become a wealthy man. He has used his clout to get laws passed and by a strange coincidence he has started companies that stand to make millions because of the new laws. Need to buy or sell carbon offsets in order to stay in business? He is the man to see. He isn’t in a financial class with Soros but he certainly has the same moral rudder.
It makes a difference how you make it and what you do with it. Wealth by itself is not evil. We would all like to be there. Proverbs puts it well for most of us.
(Proverbs 16:8 NAS77) Better is a little with righteousness Than great income with injustice.Be careful about painting with a broad brush.
