Leadership Straight from Bill Hybels What Rips Society Apart If you ask, what is ripping our society apart? Let's start there instead of saying what are some opinionated people chirping about? People chirp about a lot of stuff. What is ripping our world apart? The big two or three would be the differential between the rich and poor. The rich are getting richer. The poor are getting poorer. That actual scenario is the breeding ground for indescribable turmoil that is going to come soon. Have you seen the champagne glass on this? This is the distribution of wealth in the world. There is 20% of people that have 80% of the wealth of the world. Every time you go down to the next 20% until you get all of them. Down here there is 2% of the wealth of the world. I think this is 12%, then 6%. I do not know if these are adding up now. I am doing this off the top of my head. What is happening is the actual bottom 20-40% of the world lives on a fraction of the wealth of the world. They look up here and see these 20% have 80% of the wealth of the world. They are drowning in this champagne. We are thirsty to death. This is not fair. If you look at a lot of the turmoil in some of the conflict areas around the world, it is this. This radical terrible distribution of wealth. If you take that, now add racism or any kind of ethnic cleansing thing then add violence or war. If you wanted to transform our world not just from a religious perspective if you wanted to deescalate most of the conflict that is going on in our world solve this problem, this problem and this problem. We have an entirely different world. No one chirps about this stuff. They would rather talk about homosexuals, abortion, etc... Those are very important issues. Our world is not up for grabs over those issues. Our world is up for grabs over these issues. If you want to take on the giants, take on these giants. And speak boldly against war, and speak boldly against racism, and speak boldly against an unequal wealth distribution. You will have the ears of the whole world. We would rather have chirping discussions. Those drive me nuts.
