Money is incredibly important because aside from the fact that it is necessary for you and your family to survive, it implies having all the basic or extravagant comforts necessary to live life. It will take you wherever you wish. It will give you the means for the satisfaction of everything you desire. However, money is the scourge of the men who attempt to reverse the law of causality, the men who seek to replace the mind by seizing the products of the mind.

I do not envy the man who has wealth. His wealth is his and I would have done no better with it. What I jeer about is when the man sells his soul for a nickel, when he makes a mockery of his values as when the source of his wealth is corrupt, fraudulent, by pandering to men’s vices or men’s stupidity, by catering to fools, in the hope of getting more than his ability deserves, by lowering his standards, by doing acts of criminalities he despised for purchasers he scorned.

In that case, then your money will not give you a moment’s or a penny’s worth of joy. Then all the things you buy will become, not a tribute to you, but a reproach; not an achievement, but a reminder of shame. Then that is where money is destructive. Destructive, because it would not pinch-hit for your self-respect. Destructive because it would not let you enjoy your depravity, therefore, you have damned your own existence.

People have never been surprised to find that many irresponsible, delinquent, drug-addicted, or otherwise troubled children have been raised from rich parents whose wealth came from fraudulent source. This relationship between the "sick" home and the "sick" child has been known for centuries. It is entirely reasonable to expect, and repeated experience has confirmed, that children feed and raised with stolen money by parents who are morally defective, scoundrel, indolent, irresponsible, incompetent, or criminal should turn "bad." ("Like father, like son.")

We may infer safely that in such families the parents set a poor example, failed to teach proper ethical standards and paid insufficient attention to the child's physical and emotional needs due to deceitfully misplaced ambition. We may even suspect that such parents did not really want or love their children. Common sense tells us that "problem children" should arise within such a family context. This has occurred so regularly throughout the period of man's recorded history that it has become part of our folklore. Numerous novels and stage plays center around a prominent person whose son becomes the town's ne'er-do-well or the socialites' daughter who becomes the town harlot.

Whoever you are who fits out the description here and who thought you are honest because you have not been caught, don’t take great pride of your false belief as a smart alec. You still have your children and grandchildren, who will carry the weight of your depravity, and they will be the ones, individually, who will reap what you sow. If you will not believe this, then, you don’t really care about your children and you will be cursed by them. Don’t you see they are already showing signs of becoming like you—-a politician? They will also buy votes to win the election, and then use their political position to amass enormous wealth like you by corruption. This time, they will not be able to escape but will surely be handcuffed. That is what is called TRADITION. This pattern is what has been spread over them by your `memes’ and transmitted unfailingly to your descendants.

“The Children cannot walk away from getting their father’s horrible past thrown in their faces. It’s a life time sentence for them. They are doomed to continue the cycle of untrustworthiness that so many go by. It's really a shame, and the stigma is attached to the children who suffer the after effects by force of circumstances.” ( –posted August 20, 2009.)
