Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Why do indeed some try very hard at jobs where it is obvious it will not earn them more?"

An important word in the above sentence is "some" -even if conceding the point that it is obvious that it will not get them (why earn? Did I at any point suggest that it was only about money?) anything, which is not the case in any hospital or school I've ever seen (to take the same examples that you took).

And of course, you are very deliberately choosing jobs that are known to nurture that kind of feeling, for which I have enormous respect, don't get me wrong.

How close exactly to 100% of society made of this kind of people do you think we are, right now?

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
