thanks for the response seabag, and no offense taken. Let me clarify as I know it does appear as if I'm begrudging the hard workers, that is
definitely not the case. I am taking offense to the atrocities committed in the name of the American people, and the corruption by TPB, and the only
solution that I see is to eliminate a system that breeds these corruptions
I do have a grasp on the difficulties and trials of our founding fathers. However, if you were living during those times, you would also realize that
they were enjoying the discoveries that THEIR forefathers discovered, that's evolution, continually advancing the species, every father wants to build
a life for their children where they can have it better than they did, the same goes with each generation, we build off the discoveries and knowledge
from the previous.
I have worked hard my entire life, hard work does not equal wealth, of course you're right that hard work can lead to wealth, but it is not JUST hard
work that leads to wealth, the wealthy and especially the extremely wealthy are more than a little crooked, it is not just hoarding of knowledge but
also greed and general uncaring of fellow man.
I am not saying that an evolved society can survive without hard workers, in fact quite the opposite, there will always be hard workers and they will
be the ones who shape the future of our society. They will enjoy life way more than the average worker or the lazy worker. I'm against individualism
and every one working towards their own goals, because I feel this is what allows the blinders to be placed and the corruption to be set. As I've
stated, if you're focused on your survival, you're not concerning yourself with the atrocities being committed in your name.
As for enslavement, under the traditional definition of the word, we are not literally in chains. however, I can equate the average american's life
to punching a time sheet 40 hours a week to sustain a life with the necessities as slavery. We are stuck in this pattern, for the entirety of our
lives, and we have little to show for it.
Evolution is the continual growth and advancement of a species, we as a species have already laid the ground works for future generations to benefit
from our labors. I am in no way begrudging the hard workers of our society, I am simply stating that the continual need for every person to work
their day to day lives 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week for 50 years is ridiculous, especially when the average person is not enjoying the luxuries and
comforts that our species has discovered and invented over the course of its evolution. Especially when the means and resources are there to provide
