Why Some People are Against the Idea of Sharing Earth’s Resources Equitably

You would expect the idea of sharing earth’s resources equitably to be an idea that resonates with everyone. But as it turns out, there are huge numbers of people who are vehemently against that idea. There are people who actually find the very suggestion of sharing earth’s resources equitably to be a terrifying proposition. So, why is it that some people would be against this seemingly noble idea?

The answer to the question as to why some people are against the idea of sharing earth’s resources equitably is simple: there are some folks who know that they are hogging an unjustifiably big share of earth’s resources. Such folks therefore believe that if earth’s resources were to be shared equitably, they would end up being the losers: as a bit of what they hog would be taken and given to those who have nothing. These are folks used to living in luxury. These are the folks who can afford costly products, like, say, the highest rated over the ear headphones. To such folks, the idea of buying and using more modestly-priced products, such as the simple closed back on-ear headphones is unacceptable. They believe that they deserve ‘the best things in life’. Unfortunately, for them to do use the very best things in life, they end up depriving others of access to the rather limited earth’s resources. And knowing which side of their bread is buttered, they are (understandably) inclined to balk at any idea of sharing earth’s resources equitably.
