Am I the only one who reads this as a bunch of ranting, vacuous self-aggrandising bullshit?
you must be a teacher and or labourer
Greed is Good/God.
Nope. It's pretty much exactly that.
Boy am I sick of reading photos of people holding up words on paper.
yeah it's a pretty solid guarantee that the paper will have a bunch of ranting, vacuous self-aggrandising bullshit at this point
Appropriately enough for Halloween, we bear witness to the ghost of Ayn Rand. OOOooOOooooOOOoo!
This scares me more than any horror movie.
Seriously, **** ghosts.
The guy does have a point, though. People were perfectly happy to live off the excessive gains of an unsustainable economic growth right up until it bit us in the ass. I dunno that I buy his whole argument about the other stuff, but the placement of all blame on banks and big money really is only part of the story. The entire US has been buying on credit for a long time, and it took until now for us to admit that was a shitty decision-making paradigm.
Yeah, but that's because Wall Street and the Federal Reserve and the Chamber of Commerce and the Senate spent the entire time telling everyone everything was fine.
I say to you author of said letter... bring it bitch. Take our jobs, and I'll be happy. You won't be able to put up with 1/xxxxth of your salary. And even if you could, that would make you no different than any other person at our level. I think we'll manage. There's not a shit ton of you people anyway.
Looks like someone is trying to piss everyone off, and it's working.
If only there was a word for someone who uses obvious falsehoods to get other people angry.
But all this growth is fake as shit, and will always go bust at some point. Real wealth comes from making real things, not financial trickery.
"You liked the oil just fine when it was powering your cars, but all of a sudden it's a bad thing when it leaks all over the Gulf and kills massive amounts of wildlife? F***ing hypocrites, the lot of you!"
That's a good argument for why you need government to regulate these types of things. People as a whole are greedy, we need people that know the system and aren't bought to come up with laws to regulate these types of things. I also highly doubt the claim that 401Ks doubled every 3 years. Would love to see a source for that. Most of the people that made gains in the last 20 years are so have been the top 20%, the rest of us have seen very little gain.
$85,000 teacher salary? Good luck with that Wall Street.
The cognitive illusions are strong in this one.
The letter's author sounds pretty scared, actually. If people on Wall Street are sincerely thinking that they are going to be taken down, these protests are a lot more effective than I thought.
Pretty sure it's just trolling, though.
The answer is socialism.
I found this one on reddit a while back.
How do you turn a capitalist into a socialist?
Compete with him.
