Where did atoms originally form?
Bumping my previous reply to the top as it expounds on my question.. 6 days ago: Stars form heavier atoms by smashing together EXISTING atoms. The (new) in my question obviously refers to the simplest atom, hydrogen. My understanding is that the protons and neutrons make up the nucleus, with the electron currently thought to exist not in a planed orbit, but in a cloud. The electron is moving very fast in it's orbit, and it's angular momentum is what stops it from falling into the nucleus. My question relates more to how the atom forms. Let's say the universe is cooling down and the quarks form the protons and the neutrons, electrons materialize, etc..,,, At this point, there is a real problem, at least in my mind. There is no angular momentum to stop the electron from ramming into the proton at this point, and there is no reason that the electron should prefer to organize versus follow the easy path of electromagnetism. I cannot rationalize this step from particles to atoms. Everything I've read just says the atoms formed once the particles came together.

Should we view wealth hoarding as dysfunctional as any other form of hoarding?
There is a big difference between those who accumulate things versus those who accumulate wealth. Wealth can be propelled forward through generations, raising the standard of living for one's progeny. There is nothing wrong with wealth, or the accumulation thereof. There is a reason that Hollywood Stars and the like decry wealth, yet refuse to just give it away. Linking the two is comical.

How we can reduce poverty and inequality in developing countries?
I think it is imperative that a developing country instill hard work and self-reliance above all else. The quicker a populace turns to the government for help, the sooner the resources of the nation become endangered. The rule of law should be strictly taught and adhered to; this ensures that honest people not fear the ones tasked with their safety. Education is very important, but the work ethic being taught behind the education will determine each individual's quality of education. You cannot throw money at the problem and you can't make someone learn. They have to bring their own motivations to the table. Most importantly, NEVER substitute a government solution for a private-market solution. Inevitably, the drive for fairness will drive the standard of living downwards, and upward mobility gets drowned at the expense of being 'fair'. Inequity is natural.
