29. you're in the catch 22.
If you're truly rich, monetarily, you don't need to work, so you invest your wealth to generate more wealth. The rest of us do not have the liberty, and thus we have a fundamental disconnect, we're forced to provide labor for less than it's worth because we require the income for our very survival. In this way it is quite difficult for us because the rich have all the leverage in the employee-employer relationship. An interesting thing about taking the money from the rich, is that all their money ultimately came from the poor. They pay their employees less than the labor they provided, and pocketed the difference as the 'profit margin'. So by taking money from the rich you're ultimately taking money from the poor anyways. And since they always make more than they spend, the more you charge the more they must extract from their business. Like I said, catch 22. You're always taking money from the poor, because everyone takes money from those who labor, the rich more so than others. What's really funny is that the money you spend that they give you goes right back to them eventually. The solution might be to simply remove them from the equation, however most can't afford to do that because we require them to sustain ourselves. Hence we're stuck, waiting for our silver spoon traitor to come and rescue us from our precarious predicament.
