92 - World Leaders Take Note!



 A world leader must stand against waste. The planet does not have unlimited resources, and, to provide the necessities to all human beings, the resources of Nature must not be wasted.

A world leader must see that the Law of Economy is observed everywhere. Working against this law are the examples of burning tons of grain or oil to keep the prices up, destroying forests for luxury and individual interests, waste of materials used in competition, over productivity when the need is not there. All these drain not only Nature, but they also create depression and the various ills of society,

Advertisements make people buy as if they were hypnotized. Accumulation of things without proper use is a waste.

People think that over productivity creates jobs. It does, but then years later it creates worse economic problems.

A world leader must see that nothing is wasted in the world but, instead, is used goal-fittingly.

Major vanities are:
