With the exception of a very few people, we are all little piggies.

Secondly this is so wrong:


you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.


Time is more valuable than money, so I can easily hire someone to provide a service cheaper than I can do it myself (I am very very expensive!)

Are you saying that people have never risen up and revolted against communism or socialism?


"Rising up" didn't work too well for the 40-50 million people that died under Stalin over appx 30 years.


Is StalinISM gone?

Obviously, you don't know what you are talking about.

My time is much more valuable than the people in my employ. That's why I hire them....

That's a good analogy and it's what the democrats want. They don't care about the middle class.
They want a billionaire elite class. Hollywood, the tech industry, giant corporations. These are the democratic party donors and supporters.
Next, they want a needy class who depends on the government. This is the democratic voter base, and the 'piggies'
you refer to.


You could change that to Republicans and it's the same exact thing. Both major parties are culpable for enabling the rich and the corporate welfare.

You can change it to whatever best floats your boat. The issue is a human one, not a specific political leaning one.

Humans in relative comfort, are easily controlled. Easy way to provide relative comfort? Provide food security, as in this example. Another? Entertainment.

Rome....bread and circuses.

It is absolutely amazing how much abuse a human will willingly accept, as long as the relative comfort threshold is maintained.

Many people in many other countries 'rose up' against communism.
