The Productive Rich vs. The Ruling Elite

I draw a very clear distinction between the parasitic wealthy ruling elite that survive by feasting off the productivity of the industrious by means of taxation and the rich people that attained their wealth by providing goods/services of value for which other people have willingly traded their hard earned currency. By vilifying and lumping all the wealthy into one big category without regard to how they obtained their wealth you commit the grave error of inciting Marxist type class warfare. This is both dangerous and societally damaging. The minimum wage worker who punches a few buttons at McDonald’s scarcely has the skills to run a McDonald’s franchise. He is earning precisely what his skills merit and no more. If he could find a higher paying job I don’t think he would continue to work at McDonald’s. If he makes a mistake he may jeopardize only his job and a negligible amount of currency to the company. If a McDonald’s CEO makes a mistake he jeopardizes thousands of jobs and a vastly greater sum of currency.



Just do good things

About Danilo

A practitioner of Eastern Healing arts with degrees in Acupuncture and Chinese medicinal herbs, I have always questioned the status quo, a path which led me to peaceful anarchism. Through my journey, I have worn many hats, that of a classical pianist, avid chess player, philosopher, comedian, and now father of two little anarchists. My wife brands me as a Cultural Critic, but I am simply following my thirst for knowledge and passion for writing.
