Personally, I don't hate or like rich people. I'm indifferent when it comes to social echelons. Unless they kill, pillage, rape, etc etc to get that
money then they should be put in front of a firing squad... but I digress. This having been said, your argument is pointless. Why? Well firstly
there's the instinct of survival. This would include feeding yourself, having a roof over your head, medical care even having a family. To do this
in this society you NEED money. There is nothing hypocritical about using money when it's essential to our survival in this day and age.
The way life is build. The way everything have been structured towards productivity and efficiency, no matter how detrimental to the individual this
might be, one doesn't really have a choice but to conform to technology and it's use if one were to venture into the business world. I don't have TV
nor do I own a cell phone. I use the internet and my trusty computer that's 5 years old.
When it comes to money itself, I hate it with a passion. But if I want both my kids to eat, if I want both my kids to have a roof over their heads,
if I want to provide them with a quality of life which would help them prosper, then money is the unfortunate key we must use.
See, the point you trying to make is: You're a hypocrite if you use money and hate it. We could try to make to same point about heath care. You're a
hypocrite for using a dialysis machine and you hate using it. It doesn't make much sense does it?
My take on this, and I could be totally wrong and forgive me if I am, but I think you're born into money or were always well off and are absolutely
oblivious to the value of money. But for a bunch of people 50$ can mean the difference between eating meat this week Kraft dinner again.
But fortunately some do have more money than others. Why not use that little extra to help alleviate the stress of being tight be it with toy like a
PS3 or a Iphone. It certainly doesn't make one a hypocrite.
