You’re sarcasm bedazzles me.
I love the idea. On the surface how doesn’t ending poverty and having everyone in a warm home sound like a good idea?
“Right now the rich help the rich, the middle class help eachother and the rich, and the poor are stuck at the bottom with the other poor laboring for the rich and middle class.”
The fact is, everyone can’t be rich, or even live above “poverty” without communism; and we know where that goes. If everyones rich, who’s going to handle the 200 million tons of trash all the fat people in this country dispose of every single day? Are you going to hop on the back of a garbage truck with your custom tailored business suit and loafers on?
What about fast food workers? America loves fast food obviously by the grotesque obesity rate in this country. There are plenty of people who have worked at McDonalds all their lives. You want to pay them the same as the guy down the street in silicon valley producing computer parts all day? You want to pay Bill Gates less?
You may start to talk about greed and say that the rich are greedy. Is being greedy always a bad thing? You need to ask that and think about it. In case your mind is too small to comprehend it, greed creates many many many many jobs for everyone else. You may say the Billionaires are greedy and they don’t give away enough of their money, but at the same time they’ve created a countless number of jobs for people. Bill Gates gives away plenty of his money, but on top of that think about how many jobs he has created. He practically brought computers to mainstream. How many jobs are there today dealing with computers? Exactly, he created all of those jobs essentially; and the same goes for the rest of the billionaires.
“What if the rich started helping the middle class, and the middle class and the rich started teaching the poor to be rich or middle class? We would finally break the cycle through education.”
You can’t just teach someone to be middle class or rich. I’m poor myself and I’m sure you’re sitting there with a few deals on your desk and a big fat bank account, brand new car, shiny toys. I live in a 900sq ft home with my mother and drive a peice of sh*t car, and it’s our only car. You’re saying yeah we can save the world from poverty by telling everyone how to do real estate deals, woo! Okay dude, okay.
And by the way in many areas I’m sure my “18 years of wisdom and no experience” is able to put yours to shame.
