The Great Dictator

 As I read the piece, I recalled the saying that happiness is not about having all that I want, it's about having less wants.  I agree that greed is poisoning our soul.  Sharing, consideration, respect, looking out for the other person all seem to be in decline.  To be happy it is important to share, work together with consideration and respect for one another, look out for the other person.  We are in this together.  I do believe the plight of the least of us affects each of us and the whole of us.  I do believe we will grow and be happy as a working together whole or decline and die as greedy individuals.
