People who can afford private armies don’t need my assistance battling. Sure, it might take two days for the battalions to show up with Amazon Prime. But moats and trebuchets should help them hold out in the meantime during the Class War. Defending the rich is just a hobby of mine even if I wish the subject would pay me. I’ll just have to know I have principles, which would feel more rewarding if I could buy stuff with it. I guess I’m just not greedy like holy souls who think there’s more to life than commerce.
Being scoffed at by liberals who are totally not condescending is part of modern politics. Like fans of 31 teams having the New England Patriots to loathe like the Death Star blotting out the Sun, we’re accustomed to the enmity. Selfless gentle souls who want to help others sure do spend lots of time despising those who are better at getting paid. Perhaps our pecuniary consciences would fume a bit less by learning to respect the right to large paychecks.
Wanting to take their things is how to stay selfless. Claim the plunder is for the collective to feel smug. Appreciating the right to earn whatever the hell you can is as American as shooting down metric road signs. By contrast, those who claim they’re not into judging others sure do think a person getting rich ruins life for the rest of us.
Someone else’s success doesn’t come at your expense. Liberals claim they’re empathetic then loathe anyone with a bigger yard. Jealousy is sure to spur success, which is why East Germany benevolently allowed the decadent West to reconcile.
The practical benefits of someone else earning enough to buy islands should be obvious. Who do you think rich jerks hire? Or they buy stuff, and that doesn’t help the economy or anything. Corporate tyrants have every right to bury their earnings in Mason jars. It’s benevolent of them to splurge to grease the economy.
Sharing what others earned helps us all, according to financial perverts. Confiscation doesn’t benefit anyone, although we can try again because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says it’ll be cool. Let’s swim in cash by funneling more to bureaucrats with no accountability or profit motive to shape utopia. How did we get all this stuff? There’s nothing more created when life is viewed as containing only so much currency. We better listen to economic geniuses who think earning money is a matter of taking some. The lack of new funds is a supply and demand issue, right?
We need to have a talk with progressives about where money comes from. See, when a seller and buyer love each other very much, they can create a new bundle of affluence. I’m blushing. Still, such embarrassment beats not knowing where it comes from. Those who despise the rich act as if there’s a finite pile assigned capriciously by an unjust universe. I thought they believed in karma. Money never becomes wealth with such a wretched outlook.
I’m not rich today, which means it’s one day closer. It’s possible to want to be successful without hating success. I realize it’s super unhip to believe humans are capable of advancement. And thinking America presents unparalleled opportunities to get ahead is as corny as Hee Haw. But the dream of getting a raise beats ironic resentment-based outlooks.
Aren’t you so cool scoffing at authenticity? Those dumb Red Staters actually admire those who got ahead. The market’s critics are the same wholly selfless people who think not voting oneself limitless entitlements means going against one’s interests. Why would you not want Medicaid for all? Do you want to pay your own bills, gullible sucker? I’m sure federal assistance means the utmost in quality, as well. Getting health care should be as painless as renewing a driver’s license. Is your mail here yet?
I’m sorry for being innocent enough to think positivity is the way to go. Many of those who feast on mac and cheese every Thursday while counting the moments until the next paycheck are nonetheless glad someone else got rich even though they haven’t caught up. Maybe tomorrow will be richer. America is hopeful despite the way our world is. Regular earners think upgrading to Five Guys is still possible.
Understanding where things comes from helps. Those making seven or so figures aren’t stealing from anyone unless they went to Congress poor. I know it’s mind-blowing to those who think we have to grab slices from whatever pizza’s available, but it’s possible to bake more.
Mutual exchange allows for creation. The only catch is you have to be valuable, which is why so many useless jealousy-based people resent the idea. Aspiration is far more enjoyable than waiting for a pittance. Those who think not voting to punish success means harming oneself wonder why they never get ahead. Filling Molotov cocktails is not a sign of management material.
