Money is the faith in trade, not just imaginary, it has some value, though some are not as secure as others, but that is for the economist to discuss
and debate on.
In other words, money is imaginary...
I do not believe that there are no jobs out there.
Yes, there is always Walmart. But I tend to hold People a little higher than to enslave them at Walmart. If anything, they should be running their own
business that does the same job as Walmart. But under capitalism, such an ideal could hardly ever be achieved.
And by job, I mean, something that will actually contribute to the betterment of society. You know, do we really need another wall street employee or
do we need another researcher to find a cure and / or prevention to cancer? Of course, you will tell me we need wall street employees. (wall street
intentionally lowered-cased to show my disgust, and you should consider doing the same.)
I expect to be paid what the law dictates and work to earn what they want to pay me in a timely manner. And if I am not happy with the job, I
can always go out and find another position and then give a 2 week notice and leave the prior job.
Excellent! You just proved my point yet again. The Law dictates slavery. We just don't call it that.
Greed is not such a bad thing,
Ok, now I'm starting to wonder if you're just trolling me. You already proved my point twice, so either you're being dead serious and just don't
realize you're proving my point, or you're just trolling me... but I'll assume the former.
Next time you think greed is bad, then please, take a step back not go to the stores to purchase any food or clothing, no cleaning supplies.
Yes, you present a moral dilemma I have been dealing with. However, I have not purchased any new clothes nearly seven years. Each step I take with the
shoes I wear, my feet burns in pain, but this is to remind me that millions -no- billions are living in pain.
If I can help it, I refuse to benefit off slave labor. If I have to benefit off of slave labor, then I am using to further advance and develop myself.
I will put an end to slavery, or so help you God, that this world will burn in Hell for her sins.
99% of the things we use in modern life, was all inspired by someone who wanted to make money, fueled by greed and a fierce sense of competition.
Actually, I think you better go study your Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King Jr. And to add a few inventors, you should check
out Nikola Tesla, Samuel Morse, and Thomas Edison (before he sold his soul to the corporations).
Of course, you could make the argument that those good Souls fall under the 1%. But I have faith in humanity. As King Solomon wrote, "God made
humankind upright, and humans have gone in search of many schemes."
So I have said it once, and I'll say it again, you do NOT need greed for society to advance. Money is imaginary. And fast food workers making dirt
pay is just unacceptable, and has got to change.
