I’ve had countless conversations about many of these topics with people from several different countries. Seeing and hearing how people live, discussing what each of us takes for granted, and lots of thinking have brought up many questions about ideas / thoughts I have believed are right / wrong.

Equality: doesn’t it make sense? Aren’t there some things that everybody DESERVES?

Average wage from country to country? People live great lives at the equivalent of our average wage, yet we (I) scoff at making $40K a year…
