I'd like a high income, too. High enough to allow me to pay my phone bills, finance
my computer activities, realize myself. But is it still self-interest to accumulate
millions or even billions? Is it need? If this wealth was shared, nobody would have
to starve. There would be no poverty. Everything would be great, fantastic, perfect.

The problem you ignore is accumulation.
