Working for something is only reasonable up until a point. See this is where the disconnect is what we need to find balance with. That's the problem, the weird delusion people have or should be allowed to have an infinite earning potential.
You're right up until a point, and we're wrong up until a point.
It's finding that balance which is where the magic happens.

When you allow small numbers of people to stash away billions...
Are you actually serious? Do you even hear yourself? Living in the nanny-state UK has so brainwashed you with the leftist agenda that you actually believe someONE or some entity has a RIGHT to control how successful a person can be... and how much money they are allowed to save or give to their family....
probably don't even realize how depraved that communist idealogy is and how badly is breaks the human spirit to thrive and prosper. You should really read all about East Germany and the psychological effects of the DDR.
originally posted by: SprocketUK...stash away billions of dollars in trust funds and suchlike it means that there is less liquid money out there in the economy for everyone to chase.
And you just demonstrated that you have no clue how a trust fund works!
You are unqualified to comment in this thread and I'd go so far as unqualified to vote, seeing as you really don't understand the world or human nature.

You are working off the idea that there is a single pie. There isn't.
You are taking my tomato analogy and saying that the village and saying the village can only every grow so many tomato plants in any one year. So it's not fair if the ones who let their tomatoes go to seed keep more seeds than some others and then grow more new plants the following year so that those who didn't let their plants go to seed are now locked out of having plants because the village can only grow a set number of plants.
You know as well as I do that tomatoes make more tomatoes. So even if some people keep more seeds to grow more plants in the following year, it's no bar to others having a few plants for themselves. Those extra seeds do not end "stealing" the seeds of others.

Scarcity is what fixes prices right along with legislation... it's basically a human centipede... what you cant brain wash into people time to legislate it onto others forcing their head up the systems ass.

There is the old saying that you can Feed a Man to Fish and Feed him for a day
You can teach a man to fish and he can feed himself forever
The problem is that the most wealthy have bought the river and charge you to fish in it.
Especially when they have politicians in their pockets.
The only way we will ever be free is when food and water become a given right.
