[00:03.61]In the picture, we can see a long list of names
[00:09.24]on the charting of the wealthy,
[00:11.08]while still many a person is waiting eagerly
[00:14.11]for his name to appear on it. By contrast,
[00:17.14]the donation charting has few supporters.
[00:19.94]The picture vividly mirrors a phenomenon
[00:22.71]that some rich men lack the sense of social responsibility
[00:26.60]and contribute little care and love to those who are helpless.
[00:30.50]Thanks to the opening and reform policy,
[00:33.43]a great many people in China accumulate a huge amount of money
[00:37.92]and thus lead a well-off, even luxurious life.
[00:41.68]But they don’t show beneficence as they show off
[00:45.26]their magnificent mansions and expensive cars.
[00:48.12]In stark contrast with some stingy multimillionaire,
[00:52.59]many rich people are devoted to help the less fortunate.
[00:56.16]A case in point is Bill Gates,
[00:59.16]the wealthiest person in the world,
[01:01.60]announced that he planned to give all his fortune,
[01:05.39]$58 billion in total, to charity.
[01:08.82]There is no doubt that Gates has set a good example
[01:12.56]for those “iron-roosters”,
[01:14.80]who have nothing but money alone.
[01:17.09]It is necessary for the affluent
[01:19.83]to raise awareness of responsibility
[01:21.95]and obligation to the nation and the community,
[01:25.35]from which they amass their wealth.
[01:27.54]Or they can bear in mind what Confucius said,
[01:31.10]“treat the parents of others the way
[01:33.88]you treat your own and love the children
[01:36.48]of others the way you love your own”.
