Take a Tip from a Man with 5000+ Cars in His Garage...
What are you gonna do with all that $$$$??!
If you were rich enough to drive any car you wanted, absolutely any car, and money is no object, [which very soon may be exactly the case for you!] what would you go for? A Lambo, Bugatti, Merc, Aston, how about something outrageous like a Formula 1 car.
But what if you were truly rich, not just “getting by” like that Bill Gates guy, but truly rich. The Sultan of Brunei is the richest man on earth; he is not counted on rich lists because he does not earn his money it comes from his tiny country’s oil reserves which are basically his.

Estimates of his wealth pop up from time to time but the truth is no one has any idea how much cash he has.
Personally, I wouldn't mind having a bentley, jag, land rover, and, you know, one of those bugattis... along with different homes to go with each one. And then pick 1000 of his fleet to use as collateral for funds to benefit 1000 at-risk communities, not just giving them money but creating viable programs/businesses so they can stand on their own.
What really stands out for me about this guy, and the oil rich countries in general, including what Iraq is about to become, is they really know how to take care of their people.
Every citizen of Brunei is guaranteed a university education anywhere in the world, just for starters. They don't work either...
Wouldn't it be great if the US could get a clue from these guys as to how to take care of our peeps! This is really linked to my calling. It's pretty outrageous, IMHO! for anyone on the planet to try to sleep, let alone live, with no food to eat or water to drink and no sign of anything on the way.
Especially when one considers that 4 days of Starbucks cafe latte sales would enable 50,000,000 of the poor in Anwar Pradesh, India, via a microcredit structure, to come out of extreme poverty forever. Yes, 50M people, 4 days cafe latte sales, and that was based on figures from 5 years ago!
So why shouldn't we have a planet where everyone lives well, at least have basic survival needs taken care of as a baseline for the quality of life here, instead of revisiting again and again how to better self-destruct? Just sayin'...
People who do want to work, LOL, because they want some of the luxury items, can certainly do so.
I'd say the global re-set must also bring about a global mindset re-set.
