Sickness of Wealth - Anony

This quote was added by trublus10
Wealth is the death of humanity. It is a disease we all strive for. We all want to be sick and on the brink of dying, plagued by wealth. Wealth has a way of removing morals and making those who are sick forget all manners. They act as if they are on top of the world and all below should bow down to their great power. They believe that being sick gives the entitlement they strove for all their life. Wealth doesn't affect the young very often, but when it does it's a nasty sight for all.

I disagree with the first line of this quote. I have known so many good people who were fabulously wealthy. I am not, and have not ever been, wealthy and have known very wealthy people who were so kind to me and to others. They didn't exemplify what you have stated here.

Therefore, I would correct this to say "Wealth can be the death of humanity." Or, if you are so adamant about it, you could even say "Wealth is often the death of humanity." But using an absolute like this is misguided.
