For all the flowery verbose garbage that you stated, all I you ended up stating was "MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY! ME ME ME ME AND MONEY!" Oh, and
apparently how you consider your EMPLOYEES as slaves to the system. Nice to know how you feel about the people that are actually helping you earn all
Two things you missed....
1. We are ALL ALREADY SLAVES to the system.... not just my employees but me too
2. You don't know what my relationship is with the people who work for me... what did I say... Jobs are for losers... except what? Except if you
are saving your money to start your own business.... I create entrepreneurs... And in return, they earn me money...
So don't go acting like I'm some kind of slave owner... we are all in the same boat... the difference is some people wake up, and others don't
Yet you continue to disregard what I have already stated. To US, it's NOT about the money! It's about OUR rights! Yes, we are very well aware that
the system right now is corrupt and has in some way, made us slaves to it. No DUH! That's exactly what we are trying to correct in the first place!
Some of us want the govt. to stop ignoring the voice of the people, and for once, do what's right for the people, not for their special interest
groups. But you just don't give two s*its about it.
Oh I do... the thing is though, that I don't give two wags of a tail about the obecjtive world at all... there are no real rights there... I care
only about the subjective sphere and changing my reality from the inside...
Believe me, it's much less temporal than having to exchange one system for another system... I don't need anyone saying what rights I have or
FREEDOM IS A MYTH
At least you won't until they come a knocking at your door and arrest you for having a differing opinion than the messiah's.
Why would my opinion differ?
Or how about when they start asking/demanding that you give up YOUR FREE TIME, to do MANDATORY community service?
I already do community service... It's one of the only true pleasures I get in life...
See, some of us would like to continue our lives unhindered, without being labeled or called a criminal without just cause.
So live your life in a way that you won't be labeled or called a criminal...
ESPECIALLY, if that means that the govt. can come crashing down your door and arrest you, your family, seize any assets, without just cause, and
apparently according to the patriot act, without a judicial warrant.
And why would they do that if you weren't breaking a law? Or even suspected of breaking a law?
Which is incredibly unconstitutional. But then again, you probably didn't know that, or cared, because all YOU care about, is your money, your
material goods, the VERY thing you accuse US of being. Well keep on daydreaming hippie.
My material goods are only trophys... I don't care about them all that much... although I do like them ;-)
No you missed my message...
I ONLY CARE ABOUT MY SUBJECTIVE SPHERE...
You don't get it yet... I create my own reality, and so do you... I create it with my views, my interpretations of events, my will, and my thought
Just like you... that is the only true power there is in this world...
Pretty it up all you want, it won't change these facts.
Stop bringing up the issue of materialism as it is irrelevant to our argument, and you're simply trying to sidetrack the issue.
Not at all.. I'm trying to let you know that riches and power all come from our mindsets... it has nothing to do with materialism...
It has to do with inner liberation... the only true liberation there is...
Read the declaration of independence sometime. There's a reason why the word INALIENABLE is there! they CANNOT be taken, not by you, not by our govt.
Not by ANYBODY!
Yes... you hit the nail on the head... no one can ever take your rights away... because according to our founding fathers... they are inalienable...
meaning that there is nothing to fear... they are there whether you live under an oppressive govt or not...
Only US, the people can be bullied into submission and giving them up, and guess what? I AIN'T BUDGING B*TCH!
I bet that makes you feel good... in the end... that's all that matters....
No one is asking you to budge.... not a bit... but if you need to read that into what how you interpret your world in order to feel meaningful... then
so be it...
It's all about will to meaning... not will to power....Objectivism has failed.
