Some of the most generous people I know have no money.
That’s how it should be.
When we have no money, it’s a different lifestyle.
When you see the old people…
In our language we have no such word as”please” or “thank you”,
because of what is expected of us is that we share and give what we have.
Today we have to say “please”, we have to say “thank you”,
we have to beg for things.
In the old days,
it was a given thing that we would share things.
That was a part of who we are.
And not only for Aboriginal people,
I would expect people all around the world
would do the same things before money.
But nowadays “It’s mine.” There are words like “mine.”
We don’t share our things anymore.
And it’s become…
It kills us as human beings, as a society, as a race.
When I say “race”, I’m talking about the human race.
But we deny people shelter, we deny other people food,
we deny other people their survival, purely because of money.
~ Stephen in the film HUMAN
