How much are you worth?Frequently, on the websites of Yahoo news and on Youtube, I see articles and videos with the heading "How much is (personality's name) worth?" or "What is (personality's name) net worth?", and it makes me wonder.
Firstly, why would you (the writer/video maker) put that information out there? Isn't it private? Are you even authorized to do so? And wouldn't that information make the persons targets for theft, kidnapping, etc, thus endangering persons' life?
Besides that, how shallow is it to base a person's 'worth', only on how much money they've made/inherited/etc.? But then, that's the state of the world that we live in, isn't it? Very sad, but very real. If you don't have money or wealth, then you don't have 'worth'...to many people.
And that's just another reason why some feel that they are better than/superior to others...Unity struggles to be heard amongst the noise of the dividers. But, we should all know our worth, without depending on others for confirmation.
