    You?
    Griffin says that in Jekyll Island as well... If everyone paid back every single dollar owed, there would be no money whatsoever. If you have $200 dollars in your pocket, it represents $200 that somebody owes to someone somewhere.

    In essence, my theory of the balance of life.
    In order for someone to have, someone else somewhere must have not. In order for someone to be happy, another has to be sad somewhere. They balance each other out.

    I see where you're coming from, but it tramples on my philosophy a bit in that I believe happiness and contentment are much the same and available to nearly all of us. But I do see where you're coming from.
