When Did ‘Dependence’ Become a Dirty Word?

Those who own wealth tend to think they exist entitled to the goods and services of others and the resources of the Earth without recognizing the costs to people and the planet. They also don't realize the role that consumers play in their accumulation of wealth. Consumers with wages buy things, ie; homes, food, transportation, education, health care, clothes, and lots of other stuff. Draining the wage-workers drains the wealth out of them to be sucked into the vaults, mansions, and things that show off their privileged entitlement. 
Does it not bother an owner of wealth that workers lack the basics of life if they work for wages that do not make a living. Is greed the highest value the wealthy have?

The author of this piece is widely known for "being the first priest in an openly gay relationship to be consecrated a bishop in a major Christian denomination believing in the historic episcopate.[note 1] " He has two points in his favor, concern for the poor and openly gay. I wonder if he would be open to a conversation about belief, faith, and his remaining in the church? It is worth a try. I'll let you know how it turns out. 

I tried the same thing with blogger Andrew Sullivan who is both a gay man and a Roman Catholic,  and nothing came of it.
