Wise words. Unfortunately, most people cannot even come close to these ratios. 50% to business, 25% for future security, and 25% to enjoy.
Most people spend 75% on bills and 25% on enjoyment.
I am not one of those people, but my employees, family, and just about every average person I meet lives like this. It's odd when a single man can
fell trees and build themselves a house, in just a year or two depending on a few factors. Take a family (my own for example are all union workers),
together, they could easily build a house for each of themselves with their work power combined in a years time. Some in my family even did build
their own homes, yet, many of them have none. Some work 20+ years hoping they may own their home.
Most can't afford one.
Now, how is it that these people could build themselves a home in such little time, yet have to work 20+ years to own one, or may never own one at
Our system is inefficient. People are not made useful. They are boxed up, 20,000+ to a giant office building, filing paperwork all damn day long just
so some asshole company can deny you an insurance claim, force you into contract, abuse a contract you already signed. Thousands upon thousands
sitting around pissing their lives away mowing down forests for BS paperwork that will be shredded one day instead of forests to build house and
people to build them.
(This is an analogy in some sense I realize not everyone can have a home built of wood.)
