Wealth can only be protected by strength

Sep 5, 2016

“Hannah Arendt, a postwar philosopher, once said that the most dangerous thing in the world is to be rich and weak.  Wealth can only be protected by strength, as unlike the poor, the wealthy are envied and have things others want, and unlike the strong they are subject to power.  My father used to say that the richest man in the world couldn’t survive a cheap bullet.  The same is true of nations.  Wealth without strength is an invitation to disaster.”

 -George Friedman, Flashpoints: The Emerging Crisis in Europe
