If you rely on other people to make “your” money... then it’s not “your” money.

 

So if none of the money you have is actually yours, and none of my money is actually mine, then who does it belong to? Economic transactions always rely on more than one party by definition.

It’s exploitive.

 

Another common linguistic fallacy Socialists used to prey on the economically illiterate. Exploit has two definitions, there's the negative one like a farmer not paying migrant workers what he said he would, knowing they can't/wont take him to court.

 

Then there's the non-negative definition of the word. One can exploit their own knowledge of the stock market to get rich, one can exploit their close proximity to their job and sleep in. One can exploit all kinds of things, like the fact an employer reliably pays them a good salary.

 

Any mutually beneficial economic transaction is exploitative by nature. I can simultaneously exploit both my neighbors abundance of sourdough bread, by exploiting my own abundance of money. If we both decide to do the transaction my neighbor is exploiting me. So technically yes, employment is exploitative both for the employer, and for the employee. Both benefit, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that unless some other nefarious activity like employee theft, wage theft is taking place.

Rich people has used the government and the military to their advantage since forever. Time to pay a tax for their labor. 

 

This is what I'm trying to stop, but you word this as if it's the fault of every rich person. Very few rich people are actually engaged in this type of corruption. You can be mad at all rich people, and blame all rich people for this, or you could put the blame where it belongs, a government structured in a way that makes this not only possible, but the norm century after century over the entirety of human history.

Not everyone is driven by the dollar. Some people want a decent wage so they can live their lives.

 

So what does applauding Biden's grab for more money have to do with this? Those people in the middle east minding their own business? Those people that are forced into funding this? I agree, one should be free to live their life as they see fit, until it interfere's with mine obviously. Money really only makes certain goals more possible, but isn't central to life, or happiness. True happiness (for non-psychopath humans) comes mainly from contribution.

When that’s robbed bc of greedy gollum’s of the world need to give up some of their treasure, then that’s an issue. Suck it up. The common man has to.

 

So why do you, someone who's in the top 1% globally allowed to even exist when most people on the planet are forced to live on so little. Or do you use your own income as a metric? Like OK, my level of luxury is OK, but anyone's above me is immoral. Most people of the world (suffering from economic illiteracy) are looking at you as the greedy gollum. Yet you aren't giving your position up, to live as one of the common people of earth.

Reminded me of the perfect meme for this occasion. It's aged like fine wine and has become more offensive now than it was a decade ago. 👌 Magnifico

We used to call them shits nut shorts back in the day. Anything over the knee was nut. Also had nut shirts. If you lift your hands over your head and you shit came up over you pants, exposing your stomach  your nuts could fall out like that too. Gotta play it safe with the jewels, can't wear no nut shit. Dude in the background almost  knows what's up, shirt passes at least. That pedo couple in the front of the photo fail miserably though. WTF is that shit. They wouldn't have violated nut so flagrantly if Trump had twitter back then.

I don’t agree @Mercerbut that’s ok. The beauty of living in our country...for now.

 

 

I get you man, I've been on both side's tTBH. I just love upping net worth now, watching other people up theirs so much, this class hate shit feels so counterintuitive to me now. Free markets are my religion. It's like when some annoying prick that used to like death metal finds Jesus and can't shut the fuck up about it. My sincerest apologies.

This one of those ones that makes me assume it wasn’t made by an Americans because of the grammar, but the  i also remember Americans are fucking terrible at grammar. Myself included.

lol sounds like Bernie having to switch to riffing on billionaires after becoming a millionaire. 
 

I agree with you btw. I think it's all about who dies with the most toys.   Not who dies with the most socks full of cash rolls. That's stupid.

I don't think being wealthy and being a shithead are as mutually exclusive as some people make it seem. 


I don’t disagree, i wasn’t making a statement with that one. Just thought it was funny and relevant to recent discussions.
