Another day, another dude stealing my car park.
This time it is property developer Gerard Peters and his Lamborghini at Lynn Mall who was apparently in a rush while he was being asked for 30 minutes over the loudspeaker to move his vehicle.
It really does not matter how much money a person has or what kind of car they drive – nobody has the right to take something that is explicitly for someone else. But it is true that huge material ownership can sometimes inflict a warped sense of entitlement onto a person.
Everybody is accountable to the same rules. I don’t care what kind of car you drive, or how long you’re going to be, or that you have a disabled brother (which actually does not help your case at all) – you have no right to inhibit further hardship onto a person who already has it pretty tough.
This is what happens when your decisions are based on individualistic values rather than communal and societal harmony. Imagine how different our world would be if those with money used it to make the world a better place. Of course there are people who do, but there are also those who don’t.
It may seem like such a small thing to get so deep and emotional about, but doing something as seemingly insignificant as that is where it starts.
