Default You Advocate Slavery


Let me get this straight.... because someone has worked hard/smartly and saved their money and maybe invested some too - and - over the course of their life, they have become wealthy... just because they Now have more money, they somehow Owe some of this money to people who have not worked hard/smart nor invested over the course of their life.

Is that pretty well what you're saying?

Let's break it down another way...

I have a widget for sale. I offer this widget for $10. You buy it. I now have your $10 and you have a widget. Thus, my financial wealth has increased.

How do I then owe some of this $10 back to you?

I do NOT. The transaction was done. Completed.

But what you're saying is... just because I sell many of these widgets I must now give some of that money to people who bought my widget and those who didn't buy my widget but who you deem worthy of having some of my money.

Another way...

I work 60 hours a week while you work 40. We do this for many years. And now, years later, because I was willing to spend the time to work and have more money than you, I somehow Owe you some of this money?

How do I owe you money?

I do Not. I worked while you had leisure time. I owe you nothing.

But what you're saying is... just because I have more money I must now give some of that money to people who worked fewer hours than me and who worked for less money than me.

You advocate slavery.
