Whilst supporting Occupy’s campaign against the 1% gathering in more and more wealth (and power), it causes me some discomfort to watch program’s such as Eden’s “Human Planet”.

One, such, informed me that a man in the Far East had earned 60p for a full weeks work, catching snakes for the Market.

On the one hand this seems an unfair distribution of the World’s wealth. On the other, whilst I can spend that on a packet of Pub crisps, a fairer distribution would mean my cutting back a quite a bit, whilst the 1% wouldn’t even notice.

Problem is to how far I would go for a fairer distribution of wealth?

I guess, first concentrate on my own neck of the Woods, then help those less well off.
