    Still the monetary system is CROOKED AS FUCK. It's ridiculous to not push against it or not try to make the world better in some way, especially if you have kids, unless you want to proactively punish them for not growing up in the same era as you.
    Ok well I guess I should get a Twitter account and start tweeting?

    Lol what the fuck are you gonna do?

    Buy some doge coin or Bitcoin man, I donít know.

    Youíre like the old man who yells at the cloud.

    I like how you're bumping the topic like everyone still posting here hasn't contributed lol.

    I get the sense that DOOCH was probably born into dire poverty lol. No disrespect, my family had ups and downs too and it helped me get perspective.
    What I can say is that the people who give a fuck about 'wealth disparity' are all middle class or rich but less comfortable than their parents in their adulthood.
    Actual poor people have a deep love for the system as is, and are consistently bootlicking wanna-be 'capitalists' that want their spot. Someone in existence being bastardly rich tells them they can be bastardly rich, or their kids etc and makes for good escapist entertainment.

    A lot of leftist politics likes to speak for people. Like with Union. Idk what unions you guys have where you're from, but union ppl where I'm from and where I currently live would probably called pro-union left leaning millenials 'queers'. Poor ppl make up the bulk of ppl that support and prop up the current system, and to them the crookness is one of the cool features. Find a poor male that doesn't have a movie about someone being a criminal or abusing authority in their top 10.

    So it's not going to change. The people someone would ordinarily want it to change for love it, even if they're taking generational Ls. The people that want to change it benefit most from it and will stop pushing once they realize how much of their personal comfort and 'success' is dependent on how the chips stacked in their favor

    You have to let go of this notion that people are inherently equal. Weíre not. Weíre all different.

    ďEconomic systemsĒ is just a basic reflection of that.

    Iím not surprised anymore that a lot of people want conformity. Not just conformity for the sake of avoiding random chaos, but like, supreme conformity where everything is exactly the same to the point itís actually repressive.

    And I think most people donít even want this itís just whatís pumped into our heads by the people who want it the most because it benefits them.

    Maybe thatís not what your talking about. I donít know.

    The economic system allows those at the top to stack the deck against people at the bottom. If you're born rich, you're highly likely to die rich. If you're born poor you're highly likely to die poor. It's very obvious that people at the bottom do not have the same opportunities as those at the top. That has nothing to do with people being different, or not as skilled, they don't have the opportunity to even suck at the same things.

    The fact that some people make it from the bottom is not proof that anyone can make it, its proof that highly intelligent, conscientious people can make it from the bottom. You can be a mediocre millionaire easily if your parents did well. The whole system depends on fucking over the majority.

    Automation and increasing job losses are going to make people extremely angry at this in the near future. We need a better system.

    You dudes are basically talking about Communism as a solution? IMO both Capitalism and Communism are both outdated as economic models?

    People who're in the middle class have a lot to lose.

    No. Never been ďin povertyĒ like that. There is just way too much family and friends looking out for eachother that, unless I chose to be a complete useless degenerate, Iíll be able to make a living. Work ethic was instilled as a 14-15 year old. I had good parents and good family, we were all lucky like that. But thatís something you build and pass on.

    Like that discussion we had earlier. Itís a safety net. No if I came from a single mother and she came from a single mother and I had nobody there for me, no grandfathers, no uncles, no friends of my fathers, youíre extremely vulnerable.

    Thatís cultural impoverishment and itís a growing problem. In that regard I was a rich man.

    No I never said that. All I basically said in this thread was ďwhat the fuck can you really do?Ē

    I guess you can join some fringe group and dedicate yourself to fighting it. Iím not willing to do that.

    Iíve lived a good life. I donít know, yea there are things that are fucked up but they are beyond me and wonít go much farther than wutang Corp postings. I donít want to be one of those miserable people who is cynical about everything. Itís a dead end.
