The world is appearing to be prospering with humans living longer and less poor than ever before.
And you think that those who pay and work for that good position despise life.
Rather a strange view. Care to explain it.
Would you rather we return to shorter and poorer lives?
Your words, above.
Keeping it simple, as you requested, though I think every point I made was salient and it took every word to express it: the poor haven't the means
to achieve the same position to pay and work for that "good position."
They are kept in that mein, by those who pay and work for that good position. For it takes the poor to make money off of for the other class to
succeed. Ergo, keep them where they are, so that those who have can hold onto their position. And yes, in this way, they despise life, and it seems
inherently obvious. In the end, the neither respect the poor, nor how they held their own position, and frequently become less and less appreciative
of themselves and what they have. They placate their guilt over this by giving to charities, or making an appearance of caring for the "lesser" class
that afford their abilities to succeed. One need only read celebrity news to see the self loathing and self destruction that illustrate this
Despise life? You can see evidence in the wealthy all over the place of this. I don't think this a rather strange viewpoint at all, but rather

You mentioned that the rich cannot take it with them and you are right. Now think demographically over time and you will see that the wealth at the
top, that they cannot take with them, just falls back into the general economy when they die. Nothing is ever lost to a finite demographic common.
Oh yes, and this. Laughable, really. No, it doesn't fall back into the general economy when they die....
REALLY? They pass it on in their estates to their relatives, keeping it right where it always was.....
