Another Thought about that Fisherman

Something that's been bugging me about the Mexican Fisherman story: no mention is made of all the tuna that would be pulled out of the sea to make the fisherman a billionaire.

Getting rich the American way lays waste to the earth, the sea, and sky.

I wish the Mexican had scolded the MBA for his failure to see that following his advice would lay waste to Mother Earth.

How sad to lay waste to the earth in pursuit of bits of green paper and cards of plastic making a fat wallet.

As Gandhi said, "Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed."

Thanks, everyone, for chiming in. I appreciate it when you take a moment to comment.
