Time to save the world
It’s time to step up. Showing off online as a millionaire or billionaire by saying you were tested for the Coronavirus and you tested positive without any symptoms (or tested negative), reveals your “economic privilege,” or you’re rich enough to bypass the line.
Now that you’ve done it, why not go the next step and put your funds to good use by helping mass amounts of people get tested (you did have the funds for you and your family), or use your money to hire local people to purchase essentials and deliver it to lower income families. You can literally have your assistant help you with Zelle, Venmo, or PayPal to start this today, and make sure random families are getting canned goods, toothpaste, bars of soap, paper towels (let’s assume the end of toilet paper), etc.
There are actions that can be done, and not just in the US. I know it’s hard to figure out who needs their rent paid, or who needs some money to buy food, but why not hire 1000 assistants to help alleviate this process? Every NBA player, every MLB player, ever NFL player, every soccer star, every team owner, every musician who is hoarding millions, eery CEO, every doctor, every inventor, every televangelist, every investor and influencer who peacocks on instagram, every actor and whomever else who has millions or billions just sitting there- why not do something useful to help humanity?
I’m not saying spend all your money- you earned it, it’s yours. But realistically, if you can survive comfortably another 25 years without earning another dollar, then perhaps using 20%? Most assume the government is unable to properly help the nation, so why not have individuals within communities reach out to nearby cities? Become a savior of humanity, a true hero.
