Wow! This video of Tupac Shakur from 1992 warns America what will happen if more people become like Donald Trump, and what you can do about it (see video below).
He says that from an early age we are taught to be more like Trump, which for Tupac means to always take rather than give and crush others along the way to achieving success.
Yet this isn’t how success actually works. Even successful billionaires like Trump needed the help of others from an early age to learn how to act independently.
The reality is that to get on your own two feet, you need help. Therefore we need to look out for others, and especially the less fortunate people in society.
The video is notable for Tupac’s passion for the cause of helping others. He rails against the current system of society where people are getting rich and others have no money at all.
Tupac also says that as America is a melting pot of different cultures, these groups need to learn to help each other much more. It doesn’t matter if you’re white, black, Mexican, Korean, or anything else.
If you don’t adopt the value of helping others, you’ll be likely to generate some pretty bad karma.
Also, nobody should be getting rich when others are starving. People shouldn’t own planes when people are living in poverty.
Finally, towards the end of the video Tupac offers some interesting ideas, including the following:
- Millionaires shouldn’t be getting humanitarian awards when they are continuing to live with riches while others are living in poverty;
- You should give money to others based on how much money you have. If you have $3000 in your pocket, you should be giving more than a quarter to people on the street;
- Don’t judge how people will spend the money you give away. Just give freely;
- If you’re a billionaire with two kids, limit yourself to having one house with two to three rooms.
Consumerism is running rampant, according to Tupac, and America needs to change its ways quickly to avoid a terrible fate.
I wonder what Tupac would say about Trump being elected as president. What do you think? Share your ideas at ideapod.com.
