The Poor Are The Richest

“The poor may have the smallest pockets, but they surely have the biggest hearts”.
Rich people are the selfish people that only care about their wealth and about their
reputation, they are greedy and only care about making money. Furthermore, they are
consumed with the idea of degregating the poor so they can achieve success, even if it
means destroying others lives. On the other hand, the poor are those who battle to survive
among the rich and live their lives to help others. They are open minded and always
wanting to give more than what they have. moral character of the rich and the poor and
thus they don’t help each other mutually in obstacles they each have to face.

Poor people are filled with hope and the desire to help others that are in need of
help. They are consumed with goodness and are always seeking to help out theiw on class.
The Mexican revolution is very good example of how, when in tough times, poor families
and friends stick together and help each other out. The people were searching for work,
money, and happiness, but were faced with many hardships along the way. Those who
were able to make it to their destination were not met with the fulfi but with the feeling of
being unwanted. On the other hand the poor welcomed each other and tried their best to
assist those in need of help.

Being rich causes individuals to abandon their values and be blinded by the fact
that there are others in this world who are not so wealthy as you and who are in need of
help. Eventually people reach a point in which they believe that money should be obtained
regardless of the cost. An example of this is demonstrated in the Grapes of Wrath
hundreds of immigrants travel to California and are faced with a society that is not looking
to help but to take away. The rich landowners are the ones who own the land, they are
greedy and only care about the migrants workers because they know they need them to
keep making money.
