Again, there is enough greed to go around. The guilt of those who overpriced themselves is not erased simply because someone else was greedy, too. If
they are "victims", they are victims in part of their OWN greed. Everyone is looking to get something for nothing, and so far NO ONE has found it.
There is no such thing as a free lunch. It's "the law of the harvest", or "karma" if you prefer. If you sew greed, you will reap what grows from
it. What goes around, comes around. No one can rid themselves of their own guilt by simply trying to shift the blame elsewhere, and it can't be fixed
until they know what caused it - what NEEDS to be fixed. They can't "fix" someone else's greed, so shifting their own responsibility elsewhere is
You can't get "there" from "here". Until they acknowledge and shoulder their own responsibility, they can't fix their own messes. Trying to fix
someone ELSE"S mess and hoping thereby to improve your own lot is nothing more than another quest to get something for nothing, trying to fleece THEM
to make YOUR world better. it's never gonna happen that way.
You're reasoning lacks common sense that is typical of most right wingers. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few and that is what you
don't get. Most people live paycheck to paycheck while business in america is downsizing and merging with other businss, cutting pay and benefits in
the process or otherwise just going out of business; people don't have the luxury of investing anymore(except those with entrenched wealth).
Oh yes, beyond doubt. I'm unabashedly a "right winger" - I'm so far to the right that I wrap back around to the left. If "the needs of the many"
are so much more weightier than "the needs of the few", then let the many see to their own needs, and leave the few alone to see to theirs. I for
one didn't take "the many" to raise - I have my own to look out for. Breaking my back by trying to throw the weight of "the many" on me to carry
will only result in the certain annihilation of all when I cannot carry that weight and break down. They have to do their part, too.
"Most people" and their paychecks are not my concern. I have my own people to look out for. I would suggest to "most people" that they cease from
pricing themselves out of jobs and bankrupting the hand that feeds them (can you hear me, Detroit?), but they may do as they will. If the companies
could find reasonable labor here, it would be counterproductive to go to the expense of seeking it overseas. No company forms with the INTENT of going
out of business - they do so because, in part, they are getting shafted from both sides - Wall Street AND their own labor force, and then find that
they can no longer afford to take their business to a cheaper labor market.
